Wednesday night at the BRIT Awards 2014, host James Corden spent a quick minute with One Direction, who were up for Best British Group (which they lost to Bastille) and British Single of the Year. Wedged in between Niall and Liam, Corden asked 1D if they had any advice for fellow pop megastar Justin Bieber, who has endured a tumultuous few months on our side of the Atlantic.
Unlike Michelle Obama, none of the quintet seemed eager to speak up when nudged by Corden to talk about Bieber. "Who here was the first to get in touch or visit him in prison?" Corden asks them (Niall laughed). "Did you tell him what guys do to guys who look like him in prison?" Corden continued.
While 1D squirmed, Louis did tell Bieber, "Keep strong and keep doing what you're doing," though it was hard to tell if it was a sarcastic, noncommittal or genuine response. Either way, Corden played his part by reacting with mock dismay. If we had to guess, One Direction probably wouldn't mind partying with Bieber. Just maybe not as hard.
