Elton John advised One Direction lads to keep their mates

Sir Elton John has been in the music business for decades and has passed on some advice to newcomers One Direction.

He has said that Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan should keep in touch with their old friends.

Sir Elton told The Sun: "If I had to give them [One Direction] advice, I would say keep your original friends, keep good counsel with them.

"Try not to get too carried away with the clubs and all that crap -- but it's very difficult, because I did."

He added: "The thing is, it was just me. There are five of them together, they have each other to keep strong.

"Niall and Harry have now been in the paper a lot. I feel for them but I'm thrilled for them. They're also having a great time.

"Enjoy it, for ****'s sake enjoy it. If you don't enjoy it then there's no point."
