1D's Niall: 'We're Paid In Jelly Beans'
Niall Horan jokes that boss Simon Cowell is 'tight'...
According to The Sun, Niall said: "Simon Cowell is tight. That's why he's so successful - he's able to keep his money to himself. We're paid in jelly beans."
Niall's quip comes just a week after it was revealed that SiCo had paid 1D a rumoured £10m bonus as a reward for their phenomenal success both here and in the US, where the lads scored a No 1 album with their debut LP.
Joking aside, One Direction are taking their music seriously and, when they're not being mobbed by fans, have been busy honing their songwriting skills.
Harry explained: "We're always writing on the road and in hotels and airports.
"We don't ever want our music to sound like a 40-year-old man in an office has written it and given it to us to perform."
