Why did Robert Pattinson diss the most popular boy band of all timeÂ—One Direction? Does the Breaking Dawn Part 2 star have something against Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik? How would Rob feel if the What Makes You Beautiful singers dissed Twilight and his role as Edward Cullen?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, it seems Rob was asked during a recent interview ifÂ—given the unlikely opportunityÂ—he could choose between joining the band Westwood or One Direction, which one would he choose. Do note: his diss might not have been as intentional as it initially seemed.
"Westlife, definitely," he said. "Westlife are one of my favorite bands. I actually don't know any songs that One Direction have done. I've just seen pictures of them".
Now some may ask if Rob has spent the better part of the past year living underneath that proverbial rock, and while that answer might be debatable, he is a busy actor with a busy girlfriend and a very crazy social schedule. Nonetheless he isn't cruel. Rob was simply being honest in saying he didn't know the band who just broke years worth of sales records with their new album Take Me Home.
But that's okay, Robert Pattinson. Everyone knows you've been busy fighting Volturi in your on screen world and working on a romance in your real world, so perhaps One Direction and their fans will cut you a little slack.
Are you surprised Rob doesn't know One Direction's tunes? Do you think his diss was meant to be hurtful?
