One Direction’s Louis wants birthday love

Louis Tomlinson says all he wants for his birthday is “love and friends”.

The One Direction heartthrob is the oldest in the band and will celebrate his twenty-first birthday on December 24.

While many people use the milestone age as an excuse for lavish parties and extravagant presents, Louis has a rather more humble wish list.

“I don’t know what I want, I haven’t even thought about it,” he told British magazine OK!

“I’ll have to get back to you! I think just love and friends – that’s all I’ll ever need.”

The British boyband – which consists of Louis, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan – have had an extremely successful few years.

At the MTV Video Music Awards they walked away with three accolades and a kiss from saucy songstress Katy Perry.

At the ceremony, the 28-year-old beauty was spotted mouthing the words to a One Direction song, but stumbled over a few of the lyrics.

However, the boys say the little indiscretion couldn’t spoil the moment.

“I don’t really mind, it was still good! Me and Harry got a kiss off Katy so I really do not mind!” Niall said.

“It was great,” Harry added.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
