2012: (Still) The Year of One Direction

Everything is (still) coming up One Direction. The popular British-Irish boy band, consisting of Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Harry Styles, are officially taking over the world, which as my last post about 1D domination explained, is a phenomenon that has been happening like all year.

When the fab five aren't conquering the world (and aren't on the cover of like every magazine that currently exists), they're making headlines for other reasons, like for example, the new relationship (and pop star power couple) of Harry and Taylor Swift (OMG HAYLOR IS HAPPENING!). Some Directioners are happy about them being together, but then again, some aren't. OH Directioners...

But whether you're for "Haylor" or not, all Directioners can agree that 2012 is (still) the year of One Direction. Here's how the latter part of the year has been for Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis, and Zayn:
