The Dredge: One Direction's WILD night out in Dublin*

*Not actually wild. The very best of the morning’s celebrity dirt…

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

Doesn’t this unnamed man in Dandelion look happy to be hugging the pair of them? (Facebook)

#ONE DIRECTION: Niall Horan and Harry Styles out of One Direction painted Dublin red last night. And by ‘painted it red’, we mean ‘went for a modestly-priced meal and then a couple of drinks’.

The boys first descended on TGI Fridays for some potato skins and curly fries, then hit up Dandelion on Stephen’s Green. Or as E! News put it, “a new VIP bar called Dandelion”. Come on lads.

Anyway, so they basically had exactly the same night out my aunt would do if she came to Dublin.

The one upside of the whole sorry affair was this exchange of tweets. Harry remarked:

To which an enamoured fan responded:

We all do, friend. We all do.

#JUSTRAGIN’: Justin Bieber went on a rant about being criticised in the media. He wrote on Instagram (ah, you crazy kids) that he was “tired of all the countless lies in the press right now”, adding:

if Anyone believes I need rehab that’s their own stupidity lol I’m 19 with  number one albums

and lots more. He also had a pop at financially-troubled Lindsay Lohan, writing: “And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements.”

(He’s since deleted that bit and apologised for mocking LiLo’s lack of money.)

While you think about all that, let’s just have another look at this:

#HEAD SHEERAN: Ed Sheeran had his first big night out supporting Taylor Swift on Wednesday. So what did he do?

Faceplanted into the stage, that’s what.


And the rest of the day’s dirt…
