Emma-Watson-images            After leaving school, Watson took a gap year to film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows beginning in February 2009, but said she “definitely want[ed] to go to university”. The Providence Journal reported that Watson had confirmed that she had chosen Brown University, located in Providence, Rhode Island. In March 2011, after 18 months at the university, Watson announced that she was deferring her course for “a semester or two.” Watson was a “visiting student” at Worcester College, Oxford, for the 2011–12 academic year. Watson told Ellen DeGeneres in March 2014 that she was “about to graduate” from Brown in May. She noted that it took five years to graduate instead of four because, due to her acting work, she “ended up taking two full semesters off”. On 25 May 2014, Watson graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature and released a cap-and-gown photo on her Twitter account.

            Watson has promoted education for girls, visiting Bangladesh and Zambia to do so. In July 2014, she was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. In September that year, she delivered an address to a standing ovation at UN Headquarters in New York City, helping launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, which calls for men to advocate for gender equality. In that speech she said she knew she was a feminist at age eight when she was called “bossy” (a trait she has attributed to her being a “perfectionist”) whilst boys were not, and at 14 when she was “sexualised by certain elements of the press”. Watson‘s speech also called feminism “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities” and declared that the perception of “man-hating” is something that “has to stop”. Also in September Watson made her first country visit as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador to Uruguay, where she gave a speech that highlighted the need for women’s political participation.

            In 2007, Bynes described herself as Jewish, and also stated: “As far as religion, I was raised both. I learned about both Judaism and Catholicism. My parents said it was up to me to decide [which faith to adhere to] when I grew up. I’m sort of a spiritual person anyway. I haven’t decided yet on a religion. I don’t know yet exactly what I believe.”

             Bynes is interested in illustration and fashion design. Bynes has previously had her own fashion line sold nationwide and moved from Los Angeles to New York in order to facilitate her fashion career.

              In 2008, Bynes briefly dated Seth MacFarlane after voicing a character in an episode of MacFarlane‘s show Family Guy.

            In March 2012, Bynes was stopped and ticketed by police for talking on a cell phone while driving. A month later, she was arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after side-swiping a police car in West Hollywood. On September 4, 2012, Bynes was charged for two alleged hit and run incidents, one occurring in April and the other in August. The hit and run charges were dismissed in December 2012 following a financial settlement between Bynes and the victims. On February 24, 2014, the DUI charge was dropped and Bynes was sentenced to three years of probation for reckless driving as part of a plea deal.

             Bynes‘ driver’s license was suspended some time before September 6, 2012, by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. On September 16, Bynes was cited for driving with a suspended license, and her car was impounded. In May 2013, Bynes pleaded no contest to the charge, and was sentenced to three years probation. Her license was restored in April 2014.

            On May 23, 2013, Bynes was arrested at her home in Manhattan for criminal possession of marijuana, attempted tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. According to a prosecutor at Bynes‘ arraignment, police observed Bynes throwing a bong from the window of her 36th floor apartment. Bynes claimed that the alleged bong was actually a vase. Following her arrest, Bynes underwent a psychiatric evaluation at a hospital before she was processed at the police station. On May 25, Bynes said on Twitter that she had been sexually harassed by the arresting officer: “[He] slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal.” The police department has denied the accusation. The case against Bynes was dismissed in June 2014.

            On July 22, 2013, Ventura County sheriff’s deputies detained Bynes in front of a stranger’s house in Thousand Oaks, California, where she had allegedly started a small fire in the driveway, and had her hospitalized under a 72-hour 5150 mental health evaluation hold. Bynes‘ parents filed for conservatorship of their daughter shortly after her hospitalization began. On August 9, Bynes‘ mother was granted a temporary conservatorship over Bynes‘ affairs, including her medical care, as well as control over her finances, after the judge agreed that Bynes had a “lack of capacity to give informed consent to medical care.” On September 24, Bynes‘ lawyer asked for a “1368 Penal Code” hearing to determine Bynes‘ mental competency. Six days later, Bynes‘ parents said that upon doctors’ recommendation, Bynes was transferred from UCLA Medical Center to receive “specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles.”

            In December 2013, Bynes was released from treatment to her parents. She also agreed to seek counseling for the New York marijuana incident. Bynes was arrested on September 28, 2014 for her second DUI.

           On October 10, 2014, Bynes was hospitalized in Pasadena, California and placed on a temporary psyche hold following Bynes‘ new accusations, via Twitter, that her father sexually abused her repeatedly as a child. Shortly after these new allegations were made, Bynes tweeted “My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me”. Bynes‘ mother issued a statement to E! News through her attorney, Tamar Arminak, denying the claims. On October 13, 2014, the 72-hour psychiatric hold was extended to 14 days, and later extended again 30 more days. On October 22, Bynes‘ mother received conservatorship of her daughter once again.

10624561_260122677531256_1675810614716485100_n

            Hemmings started making covers of songs of various artists on YouTube under the account name “hemmo1996“. The first video he uploaded on the site, posted on February 3, 2011, is a cover of “Please Don’t Go” by Mike Posner. Later on, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined, thus forming the band “5 Seconds of Summer“. Shortly afterward, on December 3, 2011, they added Ashton Irwin, completing the present four-man line up.

           Billboard branded Luke with the title of the heartthrob of 5SOS, saying: He’s got the lip ring, the perfectly coiffed blonde hair, the disarming smile, the devastating blue eyes. He’s got the most Twitter followers out of all the 5SOS lads (2.17 million) and hundreds of thousands of likes on all of his Instagram photos. At this point, his HSP rating (Harry Styles Potential) is off the charts.

           Who won’t love Luke Hemmings? He got the looks, the voice, the height, everything that gays and girls are looking for a boy. One thing that make him attractive is his lower lip pierced. His blonde hair is a plus to me, his cockiness too.

              Some people say that Luke and Calum are secretly homo’s and couple, but what if they really are? Who cares! I still love them. But as a fan, I know they aren’t. But still wishin’ that they could be bisexuals as what I always see on their Twitcams, but not with Luke and Calum, but with Luke and Michael. I always caught them kissing “hiddenly.”

         Zayn was born in West Lane, Baildon, Bradford, England. He is of English and Pakistani descent. He was born to British-Pakistani father Yaser Malik and English mother Patricia. He has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. He and his family are Muslim. Zayn grew up in East Bowling, located south of the Bradford city centre. He was a student at Lower Fields Primary School in East Bowling and went to Tong High School, a state comprehensive school.

        In 2010, when he was 17 years old, Zayn auditioned in Manchester for the seventh series of The X Factor.  He sang “Let Me Love You” by Mario. All three judges — Simon, Louis, and Nicole — gave him a ‘yes’. His audition was initially not broadcast, but was later shown on The Xtra Factor.

        Zayn was noted for becoming nervous in bootcamp. When he was told he had to dance, he decided to remain backstage, effectively running the risk of elimination. When Simon noticed Zayn missing from the dance routine, he went backstage to convince him to return. Later on, Zayn said it was a lack of confidence that caused him to run away.

          Following The X Factor, One Direction signed a record contract with Sony Music subsidiary Syco Music. They released their studio album, Up All Night. A few years later on February 29, 2012, Zayn left One Direction‘s tour to return to the UK and be with his family due to the death of a family member.

          Zayn smokes cigarettes. In late 2011, he announced that his New Year’s resolution was to quit smoking. However, he was photographed throughout 2012 still smoking. Zayn has stopped smoking ever since early 2013. In late May 2014, a video — recorded in April — from fellow band member Louis Tomlinson‘s phone was leaked by The Daily Mail, revealing the two boys alongside other members of their management team smoking cannabis in Peru. The footage additionally contained Zayn insulting the merchandise, stating that both them and the fans are tired of irrelevant facts such as “Zayn‘s favorite color is blue”. Liam took it to Twitter to apologize for the boys’ behavior, explaining that their young age led them to make these mistakes.

          Zayn dated fellow The X Fa​ctor contestant Geneva Lane briefly in 2010. At the time, he was 17 and she was 20, but soon they broke up. In 2011, Zayn began dating The X Factors season seven runner-up, Rebecca Ferguson when he was 18, and she was 24. Their relationship drew media attention because of the six year age difference. Their relationship ended after four months in July 2011. And now, he is currently engaged to Perrie Edwards from The X Factors season eight winner, Little Mix.

          His first tattoo is والتر, which is his grandfather’s name, Walter, in Arabic on his chest toward the upper right. He got the tattoo after his grandfather passed away while he was on The X Factor. During an interview with Capital FM in September 2011, Zayn confirmed he had two additional tattoos. He stated that he had a Japanese symbol that means “born lucky” on his stomach (which was later covered up by a heart), and a yin and yang symbol on his left wrist. Zayn has said that the crossed fingers on his forearm are a symbol of good luck. He tweeted that the inscription across his collarbone meant “be true to who you are”. The tattoo of Perrie was done during the American leg of the boy’s second tour “Take Me Home” in Maryland. The image of perrie is a “hippy” version with a beanie and a peace sign t-shirt. The snake and tiger were done in a hotel room during the Oceania leg of the Take Me Home Tour.
