One Direction is ripping a page out of the Justin Bieber playbook ... shedding the whole teen heartthrob thing for Snoop and his mega-blunt.

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne got down at Snoop's "Bush" album release party Monday night with the likes of Bow Wow, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan, Slink Johnson, Red Grant, Kurupt and Jermaine Dupri.

 Zayn Malik may have actually saved the group from becoming another 98 Degrees, because they now have to recast their image or fade away.

Smoking a blunt with Snoop is a good start.
