British boy band One Direction has blown up over the last year, but there may still be a few things you might not know about the hotties.

Celebuzz caught up with pop singer Manika at her Miss Me album release party hosted by ELLE Magazine, where she dished about her current summer tour with the famed five — Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson.

What did Manika have to say about her tour with the five fellas?

“They are such great, fun, down to earth guys.”

Obviously they are well-known for being young heartthrobs as well, but Manika wouldn’t spill her biggest crush. In her defense, she said:

“The problem is they’re gonna find out and they’re gonna be like ‘really you said you like him better than me?’ So I can’t say that”

“They’re all good looking guys who can sing.”

The adorable brunette is definitely right about that — One Direction has had the biggest musical sales increases since performing at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.

Manika adds, what sets them apart from other boy bands is that “they don’t really try to pretend to be anyone else.”

“That’s the great thing about them.  Each of them is different, different styles, different ways of singing.”

What’s even better about 1D is that they all have their quirks.

Celebuzz was able to get Manika to reveal her favorite funny fact about the boys.

“Zayn always wears two pairs of socks,” she laughed, “They are so much fun.”

The bubbly brunette is one lucky lady to have gotten the chance to work with the pop band — fans across the country are sure to agree.

But One Direction was lucky too — not everyone can mesh so well with their tour mates.

The 18-year-old singer is known for hit songs such as “Just Can’t Let Go”and “Good Girls.”
