One Direction caused some raised eyebrows when they attempted to rap in Cardiff during the X Factor tour, although for many of their fans the genre-shift was simply another excuse to scream.

X Factor band One Direction are currently on tour with other winners of the last series. The boy band played in Cardiff on April 7, 8, 9 and 10 and decided to spice things up a bit with a spot of rapping to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.


Reaction to the Youtube clip of ‘One Direction trying to rap’ have been mixed.

“TRYING? bitch please they is so good they should collab with Eminem,” said an impressed HannXx2009.

pinkNtings agrees, writing: “I didn’t think it possible but I love them even MORE for doing this.”

However some comments were harsher.

“Sorry, but their rapping is as good as their dancing,” said soysaucegirl2007.

Meanwhile, One Direction have revealed – much to the glee of teenage girls everywhere – that they went skinny-dipping in Aberdeen and took photos to prove it.

If you’re hoping to see One Direction naked however, you probably won’t be in luck as the boys told the Mirror the nude pics are kept under lock and key.

“We took photos of all of us, but we’ve got them locked away somewhere nobody can find them,” Louis Tomlinson said.


Anyway, have another laugh at One Direction trying to rap here.
