The pop sensation One Direction band admitted that they were trapped inside their hotels in Australia.
The band was touring in Australia for their "Take Me Home" tour and according to their fans the shows were a massive hit. Not only that the band mates got to know that Australia has a huge fan following for One Direction, but they felt trapped.
They are clearly one of the most popular bands in the world and Australia showed them that they are loved.
The tour was a lot more than just on-stage performances for the directioners.
The band members have reported that it was not all that easy to get through since their huge fan base had them stalking not only on Twitter but also via "other" methods.
"To be fair it has been quite difficult in Australia this time," said One Direction band mate, Liam Payne.
Liam said that he could not explore Australia. This was the first place ever where he could not go out much. In one of the incidents that he described, he was followed by some 60 girls within an hour. He was out shopping in Australia at that time.

"If one picture of you gets Tweeted everyone knows exactly where you are and [what you've done] for the day then you're stuck with people following you around," added Liam Payne.
The One Direction singer is clearly quite fed up of the uninvited attention from his fans that restricted him to the hotel premises.
"We are just normal lads, we do want our privacy sometimes just to throw a football around and let off a bit of steam, rather than constantly being in the public eye," says Liam Payne.
On the contrary, Niall Horan, another member One Direction, did not give up. He was quite certain he wanted to explore the beautiful country and spend some time having fun out there.
"You have to look past it sometimes and just get out, there's no point living like a prisoner in your hotel. Even if they are nice hotels," said Niall Horan, One Direction star.
Niall visited Melbourne two weeks before One Direction's "Take Me Home Tour". He was on holiday with two of his cousins who live somewhere in the suburbs.
One Direction was received quite enthusiastically by their Australian fans. But they didn't hesitate in wooing their fans, too. Click here to know how they did it.
