One Direction's people have explained exactly what went on...

One Direction's Zayn Malik was recently subjected to the shortest interview ever, after a long list of "banned" questions was read out to a US radio DJ - listen here.

Now, though, One Direction's people have revealed what really happened - the question restrictions were all reportedly just for the fans. This message was posted on the band's Twitter account:

"Regarding the recent story about One Direction "banning questions" - this is a complete misunderstanding. One Direction asked if certain recurring questions could be avoided in future interviews as the band were giving the same answers continually. They knew, via feedback, that the fans were requesting a wider range of subject matter in interviews. 

"Questions relating to describing each band member, or referencing The X Factor, are certainly not out of bounds. A suggestion was merely made to try and make interviews more interesting for the fans, which has been misconstrued and misunderstood."

That's that all cleared up then! BS
