Jake Bugg: One Direction fans will grow up and forget them

Clearly Jake Bugg has never had One Direction waggle their crotches about in his face because he's not much of a fan and reckons that by the time Directioners are grey and old, the lads will be nothing but a distant memory.

Jake Bugg reckons One Direction fans will forget them

"I don't care about the word 'pop', The Beatles were pop, it's just what's popular," Jake told Q.

"But sadly what's popular today is most manufactured and commercial and all about fame and looks and boy bands. It's not on."

"One Direction? The young girls will grow up and forget about 'em.

"There's only [one direction] they'll be going after that, isn't there? Down. I'm interested in which songs, artists, will be remembered in 50 years' time," he added.
