One Direction Performs “Live While We’re Young” On X Factor Italy (Video)

One Direction took the stage at the X Factor in Italy on Friday. The quintet performed their latest single, “Live While We’re Young,” for the crowd.

The guys are featured in the December issue of Vogue UK and thanks to MTV, we have more quotes from the interview.

Have you gotten used to Liam’s shaved head yet? As it turns out, when the group first formed he wasn’t allowed to cut his hair! He shared, “at the start, management said I wasn’t allowed to change my hair. But then I did it anyway, so they kind of let that one go. I tend to change my hair quite a lot. I can go out and about. The other day I went out dressed as a big chav — Adidas trainers, jogging bottoms — and no one recognized me.”

And everyone is anticipating the November 13 release of Take Me Home. What can fans expect? “We want to gradually get more and more ‘live’ sounding. So this album is a lot less little synth sounds, more guitars and drums,” Harry said. “It’s important to experiment with things — we want to move with the times, but keep true to ourselves.”

Don’t forget that the “Little Things” music video comes out Friday!
