Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne have become accustomed to being the center of attention. These heart-throb members of the British-Irish boy band, One Direction, have skyrocketed to super-famous status after their X Factor UK days with chart-topping songs and countless fans. But, for Tomlinson at least, he’s lately having to share the spotlight with another burgeoning pop star who’s caught the attention of his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder. Good thing he’s not the jealous type!
In fact, it’s quite the contrary. Neither Tomlinson nor Calder have been shy in standing firmly in the corner of new-to-the-scene singer-songwriter Adam Burridge, Nicole Scherzinger’s wild card pick on this season’s British edition of The X Factor. The couple even recently attended a private show featuring Burridge.
But Calder has taken her support to another level. The cute brunette is positively campaigning for Burridge. She recently modeled a “Vote for Adam Burridge” T-shirt complete with the phone numbers to dial, and then proceeded to post the pic to her Twitter page to rally up the calls, as Entertainmentwise confirms.
She may want to balance out her pro-Burridge fashion statement by securing a Louis Tomlinson or a 1D tee. After all, she’s Tomlinson’s number-one fan–even if Burridge is currently ranking a close second.
But, at the end of the day, all of the One Direction guys really couldn’t seem happier and more supportive of their fellow entertainers in the same music space. Zayn Malik’s girlfriend Perrie Edwards is in the band, Little Mix, and he’s frequently spotted at her gigs. And despite rumors of feuds and fights, 1D and Justin Bieber, who likewise boasts peppy pop vocals and a crush of fans, appear to be on chummy terms. Beliebers can be Directioners and vice versa! And 1D leaves the trash-talking completely out of the equation when it comes to their “competition,” although they recently took issue with fellow boy-band The Wanted, the members of which apparently haven’t been as gracious and had some verbal litter to throw at Payne, Malik, Tomlinson, Horan and Styles. Not cool!
