Niall Horan, it would seem, likes to party with the best of them and could certainly keep up with his One Direction boys, including Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik. In fact, recent reports even claimed that his hard-partying ways may have gotten a bit out of control. Horan’s dad apparently even tasked the womanizing Styles to watch his son’s overzealous drinking habits. On top of that, the Irish pop sensation has also been pegged with having more than a few raucous evenings at nightclubs and other scenes.
But, according to the blond cutie himself, appearances must be deceiving. He says he’s actually quite the party pooper when he’s not on tour. Plus, unlike Payne, Tomlinson and Malik, he doesn’t have a girlfriend to entertainÂ—he continues to shoot down claims that he and Demi Lovato have a little something-something going on.
“I just sit on the couchÂ—like I’ve done for the past three or four days in London,” Horan told the Mirror, as Entertainmentwise reports. “I just sat there, playing my guitar, putting my feet on the table and watching television.”
Hmm… sounds a bit tameÂ—maybe too tame–for this newly 19-year-old heart-throb. Perhaps he’s playing a bit of the PR game and trying to brush up his image a bit and add a bit of shine back after the rumors of his more wild-and-crazy ways. Strangely enough, he even said, “I only left the house once to go and buy a bottle of water.” It’s an unusual and relatively random comment to make, but maybe he was trying to emphasize that H20 rather than something harder is his drink of choice!
Niall Horan even admitted he’s completely different from his 1D mates, distancing himself from their antics. “The other boys, they like to get out. But because our lives are running at 1000mph, I try to bring it back down. When I have time off, all I want to do is do nothing.”
Either this One Direction boy has had a major change of heart and habit, swapping his partying for an outsider perspective via more personal time at home, or he’s working the press to the best of his abilityÂ—and has already plotted his next big night out. Stay tuned to see if his homebody, solo guitar-strumming ways win out in the end.
