Niall Horan is one of the biggest pop stars in the world in arguably the most popular boy band, but he’s looking for a girl who can see past all that.
The 20-year-old Irish boy bander said in a recent interview that he’s not dating anyone at the moment, but is looking for someone who can see him as just a normal guy.
“You have to find the one who…just sees you as a normal person, which is exactly what I am, and just like you for who you are and not because I’m in One Direction,” Horan said.
That might be a bit difficult right now. One Direction has been on a seemingly endless schedule of recording, touring, and performing.
They’re also a hot commodity for photographers, who follow around the young men almost everywhere. That was the case this week when Niall Horan and his fellow bandmates arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to find themselves hounded by a pack of paparazzi.
“I wasn’t expecting it…there was loads of paps—50, 60 paps—and the fans were behind them,” Niall said about the incident this week. “They start pushing each other, which meant we got pushed. Then someone pushed me and dragged me to the floor, and then it was all a bit crazy and Zayn was being dragged around.”
Niall Horan also seems to be putting his work above his love life right now. He recently said that One Direction is turning in its finest work, including the song “The Story of My Life,” which was written by a friend of the band.
Niall Horan explained:
“He’s written a lot with us on this album too. We were in Nottingham on tour when we were touring the UK back in February and March and we just came into a room one day and he was like ‘I’ve got this song that I’ve written and I want to play you’. And we just fell in love with it the second we heard it.”
That may be the only love Niall Horan has in his life right now.
