One Direction React To Justin Bieber Release Date Drama

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber made news recently when he mocked One Direction in an online post over the fact that he and the UK boyband are releasing new albums on the same day and One Direction has finally responded by choosing not to engage in the drama.

Radio.com reports: Harry Styles and Niall Horan of One Direction recently downplayed the so-called battle between the two camps in an interview posted by Coup de Main. "There's no need for a fight," Horan said. "We just happen to be releasing our albums on the same day. It's happened to us before. Our first couple of albums were released on the same day as Rihanna.

"I think the press have just made a bit of a deal out of it because it's us and Justin Bieber. It's fine. You know you're gonna be up against someone in the charts, it just happens that we have fallen on the same day."

According to Styles, One Direction they didn't consider Beiber's release when configuring their own music. "I don't think anyone makes a record with competing with someone else in mind," he said. "I think then you don't make it for the right reasons. I think we made the record, we're very, very happy with it, we're very proud of it, and now we're putting it out. And it happens to be on the same day as someone else, and that's it. It's not a win-lose thing, it's, We hope that our fans like it, and if it does well that would be amazing. But that's not ultimately what it's about." Read more and watch the interview here.
