It's a safe bet to say that the members of One Direction have had more than their share of attention from adorable teenage fans. However, at least one member of the pop band says his heart was set a-flutter by an older woman. The group's Niall Horan, who kissed Katy Perry back at September's 2012 MTV Awards, is still talking about that sexy smooch two months later!
In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, the 19-year-old claims Perry, 28, is "the sexiest woman I've ever kissed." The pair shared an impromptu embrace at the awards show, when Perry impulsively smacked Horan right on the lips as he took the stage with his bandmates to accept the award for Best Pop Video.
A dazzled Horan tweeted afterwards, "@katyperry looks like its official ... me and you," to which Perry joked back, "I'll be your Mrs. Robinson"--referring, of course, to the classic '60s flick The Graduate, in which a young man is seduced by a beautiful older woman.
Horan wasn't kidding around about the kiss being memorable. He was able to describe it in detail to Cosmo: "It was amazing and very purple--she had purple lipstick on," he recalled. "I don't think there will ever be anything cooler than kissing her...until I marry her, maybe."
Ironically, it's actually Horan's bandmate Harry Styles who has an established reputation for dabbling in Cougartown. The teenager has been linked with 33-year-old British TV presenter Caroline Flack and 37-year-old singer Natalie Imbruglia, and has noted that he's open to dating women even older than that--just so long as they are not older than his 43-year-old mother.
That means Perry is certainly fair game...but we doubt Horan will allow it!
