Because the record company execs are freakin' geniuses!!! They know exactly who their target audience is (teen girls) and exactly how to separate these little girls from their parents' money. They take 5 pretty-boys who can almost sing or almost dance, they make one the 'badboy', one the 'shyboy', one the 'sensitive' boy, etc., so that they have all the little-girl emotions covered. Then they promote the heck out of these boys and shoot them to the top of the charts and get every penny they can squeeze out of them. As soon as they are used up, they toss 'em aside and start up another boyband, and the whole process repeats itself over again, raking in the money and laughing all the way to the bank.
OMG!! I don't know how else to start the day, OMG!! Seems nobody on Ask can go a day (or even a few hours) w/o seeing or asking a One Direction QUESTION!! Why are they obsessed? Because they "LOVE 1D" ...for their looks, their "music," 'cause everybody else does... or whatever-the-reason. They were around when I was young(er), and they were called New Kids on the Block, and Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. IF I had liked those "bands," maybe I'd better understand why kids love 1D... but I didn't like 'em then, don't like 'em now... and I don't like 1D!
