Taylor Swift

to One Direction:

'SHUT THE F**K UP!'

8/26/2013 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

082613_taylor_swift_launch
Taylor Swift doesn't just write breakup songs about her ex-boyfriends ... she talks SMACK about them during award shows ... and last night, she got caught. On camera.

It happened when One Direction took the stage to present a Moon Man at the MTV VMAs for Best Pop Video.

FYI -- Taylor used to date Harry Styles (they broke up in January) ... but apparently, she's still harboring some resentment -- 'cause as the band rambled on, the camera cut to Swift ... who leaned over to Selena Gomez and mouthed the words, "SHUT. THE. F**K. UP."

There are people out there who swear Taylor wasn't cussing -- that she was saying the words, "Sorry for my arm." 

Those people are stupid.

So ... someone grabbed a feminine hygiene product and fired it at One Direction this weekend, which inspired the following comment from one of our producers:

Rick: "Some girl would rather bleed out than listen to their music."

Yup.

Kentucky Fried Tattoo

Session ... In Maryland

EXCLUSIVE

In their never-ending pursuit of manliness, the guys from One Direction spent Tuesday night on the prowl for tattoos and fried chicken ... and lucky for them, they hit the bloody jackpot in Maryland.

TMZ has learned ... the guys were passing through Glen Burnie, MD this week when they had a sudden urge for some new body art -- so they sent their bodyguard to scope out some of the local needle joints.

We're told the bodyguard liked what he saw when he walked into Tattooed Heart Studios ... and 20 minutes later, in came Liam, Zayn and Louis.

Zayn and Louis each came prepared with some designs in mind -- Zayn wanted an image his of GF's face ... and Louis wanted doodles on his forearm of a spiderweb ('cause he likes Spider-Man) and a bomb ('cause he's da bomb?).

During the session, we're told the guys had a craving for some fried chicken -- so they sent their bodyguard to a nearby KFC, where he picked up a bucket of finger lickin' deliciousness.

In the end, we're told Zayn and Louis dropped a pretty fat tip for the tat artist. As for Liam, we're told he didn't have any work done and instead opted for a romantic stroll around town .... alone.

The Wanted

We Challenge One Direction

To Fight Us

6/1/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-getty-wanted-one-directionThe Wanted is out for some boy band blood ... challenging their squeaky-clean pop-nemesis One Direction to a 5-on-5 boxing match (however that works) ... but it's for a good cause.

Max George -- The Wanted's front man and ex-LiLo lover -- told the NY Daily News​ that he and his band mate Jay McGuiness are 100% on board with the idea and not just to bash One D's faces in, but to raise money for charity.

Max told the paper, "We would like a boxing match — them against us. It would be brilliant for TV and I have no problem with it at all.”

Plus, Max says, it would finally settle any beef between the bands -- whose fans often pit them against each other on social media -- explaining, "They’ve got 12 million followers on Twitter and I get that they have an army of kids, but instead of doing that ... if they have got an issue, why don’t we actually do something financially -- like make some money for a charity, and blow off some steam in a boxing ring."

So we gotta ask ...

To Perform Sex Acts

breaking news

0530_john_eastman_mugA man impersonating One Direction's Harry Styles was busted Wednesday for making underage girls a deal -- concert tickets for sex.

Authorities say John Eastman gave the girls options -- they could either pose naked or perform sex acts online.

Eastman was arraigned Thursday on a bunch of charges, including employing a minor in an obscene performance. 

According to the Waterbury Republican-American Eastman would go online under the Skype name Harry.Styles888 and used photos of Styles to convince the girls he was the One Direction singer.

Authorities say Eastman used his web cam to record the girls performing sex acts and saved them on his computer. Some of the photos recovered feature girls believed to be as young as 5.

Eastman is being held on $500,000 bond.

Nearly CRUSHED

By Paris Mob

It's a miracle Harry Styles is alive ... because the One Direction singer was nearly crushed to death by a mob of screaming chicks in Paris yesterday.

We've said it before ... but seriously, these fan girls are insane -- Harry was leaving Hotel Amour without any decent security, and the screaming female crowd went ABSOLUTELY BANANAS.

The horde nearly swallowed him whole before he got to his car ... no kidding ... he even lost his beanie in the process. It's unbelievable.

Almost makes you feel bad for the guy. And by almost, we mean not at all.

She's practically old enough to be his mom ... but that didn't stop Rod Stewart's daughter Kimberly from hopping into a car with Harry Styles last night after a romantic dinner in L.A..

There's been a lot of speculation that 19-year-old Harry has been dating the 33-year-old ... fresh off his breakup from Taylor Swift ... and it's clear from the video, something is definitely going on.

Harry and Kimberly joined Rod and his wife Penny for dinner at Dan Tana's -- and sources inside the restaurant tell TMZ, H&K were flirtatiously fooling around throughout the meal.

There are reports Harry was targeting Rod's 25-year-old daughter Ruby ... but our sources insist Kimberly was DEFINITELY the touchy one. FYI, Kimberly recently had a baby with Benicio Del Toro.

Git it.

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles
With rumors of a secret relationship in full swing, Taylor Swift and One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles were spotted in a FULL-ON CANOODLING SESSION in NYC this weekend.

While there appeared to be no hand-holding or lip-smoochery, the two seemed to be very into each other during a stroll through Central Park.

If ... and only IF ... they dated, Harry would follow in a long line of Taylor's celebrity conquests ... which includes John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Cory Monteith.

Good luck Mr. Styles.
