So I attended a 1D (One Direction) concert in Dubai last week. I am assuming at least some of you won’t arch that eyebrow in harsh judgment, not because you have botoxed it, but because I do not look 14 in my pictures. I attended the concert as a One Direction fan-mother to a 12-year-old and came away with a handful of lessons from it.
The One-D hysteria is inexplicable to most discerning adults. Boy bands come and boy bands go, but this one seems to have outlasted its contemporaries on the might of extraordinary talent and Harry Styles’s good looks.
