One Direction turn down Michelle Obama's White House invitation
Oh, One Direction. You might have a number one album in America. You might be pretty popular across the pond right now. You might have brilliantly styled hair that we're a little jealous of. But that doesn't mean you go turning down invitations to visit The White House. If Michelle Obama invites you over for Easter, you go.
Instead, The Sun reports that Harry Styles and the boys have declined the First Lady's invitation for the band to join the family for the annual Easter Egg hunt that takes place on the famous White House lawn.
Apparently the band met the Michelle and her daughters Malia and Sasha backstage at their Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. It's hard to imagine who was more star-struck in that little scenario but sadly the band's touring commitments are taking them over to Australia and they can't accept the invitation.
You'd think they could get a slightly later flight, wouldn't you? You'd at least pop in for a cuppa and a nose around.
