"Getting ready to drop their new album "Take Me Home," the boys of One Direction pitched in on promotions by covering the November/December 2012 issue of Wonderland magazine.
Cuddling up with adorable Labrador puppies, the teen heartthrobs slipped into colorful cable knit sweaters for the shot spread while dishing about everything from their relationship behind closed doors to staying grounded.
Highlights from Liam Payne's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Wonderland!
On staying grounded:
"I think for us, the main thing is that we’ve just kind of been ourselves, that’s what people like. I think a lot of people get into our situation and you hear they’ve changed, but we‘ve just stayed ourselves."
On keeping their lives as private as possible:
"I think there’s a lot of things that the fans don’t know about us. I think our relationship doesn’t really play out as much as people think."
On a general misconception about the band:
"People still ask whether we really get on or not, and we genuinely do. A lot of people don’t believe that, they think it’s some fake thing where we have to get on because of the position we’re in."
