Matthew Morrison: One Direction? I don’t know their names or their music

Matthew Morrison must have been living on Mars for the last 12 months as he hasn't heard of the biggest boy band since the Beatles as he fails to name any member of One Direction despite Glee covering What Makes You Beautiful.

While team omg! say Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne on a daily, if not hourly basis, Matthew Morrison failed to speak even one of the One Direction boys' names when asked at the What To Except When You're Expecting premiere.

We spoke to the Glee star on the red carpet and (after hugging us) we asked if he had a favourite member of the British band.

Matthew said: "I couldn't tell you a single member of One Direction - I've never heard any of their songs I know they had one on Glee but I wasn't in that scene."

Tut tut Matt, we thought you'd be better versed in music! Naturally we brought this up to which he replied:

"I know right, oh well — it's not really what I listen to boy bands. I was in a boy band so I kind of know how that goes."

We really don't think there's any excuse for such behaviour, we'll await One Direction's reaction.
