One Direction aren’t content with every teenage girl on planet earth buying their music – now they want aliens to buy their songs, too.
“I think our goal for ten years down the line should be to sell a single in outer space and be the first band to do so,” Niall Horan has told The Sun.
“I want aliens to buy our music. It is worth a shot and is obtainable,” the Irish cutie reckons.
We’re going to assume that Niall’s being not entirely serious here, particularly as Louis Tomlinson added,
“We should speak to that band 30 Seconds To Mars – they could probably help us.”
Oh dear, we can imagine this little joke giving Simon Cowell some funny ideas. He’s probably rubbing his hands together with glee at the thought of 1D flogging records to a whole new untapped market in space.
One Direction are currently preparing to release their second album, which is called Take Me Home, and the first new single from their album which is called Live While We’re Young.
If the boys were to release Live While We’re Young in outer space – as well as here on earth - on 30 September we’re sure it would sell, as the track has become the fast-selling pre-ordered single in history.
The track topped pre-order the chart in more than 40 countries including the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Spain, France, Singapore, Brazil and Mexico. Will Mars be next on the list?
Er, no, probably not.
