One Direction fans strike again.

Known to be a nuisance wherever 1D members are staying, the Directioners were so loud while waiting outside the high-end Belmond Palacio Nazarenas in Cusco, Peru, that the band was eventually forced to leave the hotel and seek quieter refuge elsewhere.

Here's a tweet from band member Liam Payne (the second cutest one. Zayn is first and Harry is third):

Clearly, his plea didn't work. Maybe all the fans were actually Zayn and Harrry fans so they didn't care what Liam tweeted. #arewereallydiscussingthis? #shoutouttoniallandlouis

The Hollywood Roosevelt Pool is So Chill Even a Boybander Can Go Unnoticed

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has always been a fave hangout for celebrities du jour (remember the days of Teddy's?) but we never knew the hotel's pool area was so chill that a boybander could hang with his friends and not get accosted by a ton of screaming fans.

That's exactly what happened with Harry Styles of One Direction the other day. Paparazzi shots show him lounging poolside with his heinous tattoos signature floppy hair and Calvin Klein undies on full display. Joining him were It fashion girl, Alexa Chung and rock royalty's Pixie Geldof.

According to the Daily Mail, Styles hung poolside for a whopping three hours, largely unnoticed, except by the paparazzi. A fan would come by here and there and Styles would oblige with an autograph or photo. Indeed, one fan got a snap with Styles at the entrance to the Hollywood hotel.

This is quite a contrast to the last time One Direction visited a hotel. Hmm, maybe Harry isn't so hot after all. Strength in numbers, we guess.

Interested in kicking it poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt? You're in luck. Not only is it extremely warm in LA these days, rooms are open at the hotel this weekend during the Grammy festivities. Rates start at $309 a night but you can split that rate with your most loyal 1D friends.

One Direction is Wreaking Havoc on the Andaz West Hollywood

The Andaz West Hollywood on Sunset is once again The Riot Hyatt, thanks to One Direction.

The British boy band is staying at the hotel this week during their Los Angeles tour stop and hoards of clever groupies have already staked out the hotel. Here's a snapshot of what the modern-day "band-aids" look like thanks to a tipster who's staying at the hotel.

Before the Andaz became the Andaz it was a regular old Hyatt hotel that hosted dozens of rock stars during the 70s and 80s and whose crazy antics (throwing a TV out the window, riding a motorcycle down the hall) gave the hotel its moniker, The Riot Hyatt.

Today however, it's more the fans that are doing the rioting rather than the boys themselves. Our tipster writes:

There are a bunch of bodyguards all over the hotel, especially the top floor, but these guys are extra friendly, they sort of remind me of Kevin Costner instead of the mean, scary bodyguards that I've encountered at home in New York.

Interestingly, the hotel is sold-out for the rest of this week. Rooms open back up on Monday at $325 a night but by then the boys have already left town. Meanwhile we hear that One Direction's rival group, The Wanted, is staying across the street at The Mondrian. Meow!

Harry Styles Severely Hugged By Overzealous Fan at Oslo Hotel

Where: Oslo, Norway
May 8, 2013 at 10:07 AM | by | Comments (0)

Harry Styles of boy-band One Direction was the subject of an aggressive hugging barrage by a few fans while he was exiting Oslo's $2,175-a night room at the Holmenkollen Park Hotel. Taylor Swift's-ex was taking the intimate attack in stride and even reached out to hug the woman back, but the Norwegian security team shut it down when another girl came out of nowhere to get her some love, too. They quickly ushered him on to his tour bus and sent him on his way.

Apparently One Direction has so many problems with over-eager fans (and ex-girlfriends) they're said to be hiring President Obama's security team for the US portion of their Take Me Home World tour which begins in June.

Man, the life of a boy band member is super hard, huh?
