Seventeen: Do you sing in the shower?
Harry: “We all do! We can sometimes hear Liam through the wall.”

Seventeen: Who has the best abs in the group?
Niall: “Payne-o! That fellow is ripped. He works hard at it though, so I’ll give him that.”
Seventeen: Name the grooming product you can’t live without?
Liam: Toothpaste. Got to have fresh breath, especially when we’re singing in each other’s faces.
Seventeen: Name the product you can’t live without?

On June 6 in London, One Direction revealed their new fragrance for women, Our Moment. The perfume is named after "Moments," a song off their 2011 album "Up All Night." The official 1D Twitter account <a href="https://twitter.com/onedirection/status/342705333589917696" target="_blank">posted</a> this goofy video of Niall being singing and playing around with a bottle of the new fragrance. "We worked hard to get it smelling just right," the band member <a href="https://twitter.com/NiallOfficial" target="_blank">tweeted</a>.
Even though the school year is wrapping up, the band is already gearing up for the fall with their very own <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/01/one-direction-school-supplies_n_3372015.html" target="_hplink">line of school supplies</a>, focused on the theme of anti-bullying. The supplies include everything from notebooks to nail polish.
Earlier in May, we learned about One Direction's official <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/22/one-direction-announces-n_n_3321813.html" target="_blank">book</a> project, <em>One Direction: Where We Are: Our Band, Our Story</em>. The band announced the title and cover art on <a href="https://twitter.com/onedirection/status/336880024936407041" target="_blank">Twitter</a> and according to <a href="http://www.harpercollinschildrens.com/feature/onedirection/" target="_blank">HarperCollins,</a> the book will detail 1D's "journey over the last year and a half." Keep your eyes peeled for its release, which is supposed to happen on August 27.
In April, Louis Tomlinson told the <a href="http://www.dailystar.co.uk/rehab/view/311558/One-Direction-working-on-new-album/" target="_blank">U.K.'s Daily Star Sunday</a> that 1D plans on releasing their third album by December 2013. Even though their <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/28/one-direction-recording-n_n_3175555.html" target="_blank">schedules</a> are so busy, they've apparently been recording on the road to get the album together in time.
Back in May, One Direction <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/05/16/one-direction-big-announcement-where-we-are-tour-2014_n_3284795.html" target="_blank">announced</a> their upcoming "Where We Are" tour isn't going to be like their concerts in the past. The band is headed to the big leagues in 2014, by embarking on a world stadium tour. In a press conference for the announcement, Harry <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/05/16/one-direction-big-announcement-where-we-are-tour-2014_n_3284795.html" target="_blank">said</a>, "It's important the fans and everyone who comes to see the show know it's going to be much bigger and new songs. A completely different tour."
Sony is making a 3-D film about the boy band called "This Is Us," which Niall <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/13/one-direction-3d-movie-bo_n_2122246.html#slide=1752503" target="_blank">said</a> is due out on August 30. The film is apparently similar to other concert movies like Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" and Katy Perry's "Part of Me." Fans will have a behind-the-scenes look at all-things One Direction and get to know their favorite band members better on the big screen.
1D World Stores
The band is continuing to open up more 1D World <a href="http://www.onedirectionstore.com/1D-World/" target="_blank">stores</a> that only sell One Direction-related merchandise. Fans around the world line up to buy T-shirts that read "Future Mrs. Styles" and phone cases with their favorite band members on the back. "I cried like 50,000 times and I was just emotionally unstable so many times, one Directioner named Cindy Segura told <a href="http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/story/22290239/2013/05/18/get-all-things-one-direction-at-1d-world" target="_blank">MyFoxPhoenix</a> when a 1D World opened in Arizona.
