There was once a time when British boyband 5ive were one of the most famous boybands in the UK. They have recently come back into the public spotlight, starring in the new reality television series The Big Reunion, which sees a number of old bands coming back together for a reunion tour.
Meanwhile, One Direction are currently the biggest boyband on the planet, much bigger than 5ive ever could have imagined, but that has not stopped 5ive's Sean Conlon from admitting that he is worried for One Direction. He says that there is no way that such a huge amount of fame cannot be messing with their heads.
Conlon explained to Digital Spy, "I'm not trying to put a downer on One Direction, I think they're a great band, but the bottom line is they're little kids, they're young kids. There's no way the phenomenon isn't messing with their heads."
There is not a day that goes by without there being a new story about one of the members of One Direction. The boys have regularly had their private lives scrutinised but, with the team of people they have around them, they seem to be keeping their feet on the ground.
Do you think One Direction's fame is messing with their heads?
