On Friday when I chatted with One Direction’s Niall Horan, he told me the boy band had no plans to do a television series.

“We obviously did an episode of ‘iCarly’ for Nickelodeon,” he noted – the group’s cameo will air April 7. “That’s the only thing we’re doing at the moment. We’re not very good at acting, so I don’t think we’ll ever do acting.”

Horan did leave the door open, albeit slightly.

“The nearest thing we’d get to is a documentary,” he said, before reiterating, “There are no plans for a TV show at the moment.”

His comments came just two days after a Nickelodeon press release struck a different tone. The network announced that among its 2012 slate includes a development project for the UK pop band. The mention of One Direction came in the live action portion of the release – meaning whatever Nick has in store for 1D will not be animated.

Perhaps Horan misspoke, or spoke prematurely. Maybe he’s still learning the old American art of how musicians can answer a question without really answering it. Regardless, you could certainly understand why there might be just bit of confusion. The 18 year-old and his band mates are in the midst of an American whirlwind. The group’s U.S. television debut was last Monday, in front of 10,000 screaming fans at New York’s Rockefeller Center and millions more at home watching NBC’s “The Today Show.” One Direction’s album, Up All Night, debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. The band beat out the likes of Adele and Bruce Springsteen, and became the first UK group to debut in the States atop the charts. The feat certainly isn’t lost on Horan.

“I’ve been listening to Bruce Springsteen for as long as I can remember,” Horan said. “To think he’s in the same chart as me is just incredible.”

But while the success has been both plentiful and swift, there is a small down side for Horan. It seemed St. Patrick’s Day was just another reminder for Irishman that there is no place like home.

“It’s funny, you grow up and spend your whole life wanting to get away and leave home,” he explained. “And then when you finally get away, you realize how much you miss home, and you can’t wait to get back.”

The band plans on heading back home soon – but don’t worry Directioners – Horan revealed that the group will return to the States this summer. A formal announcement is expected this week.

Big Time Rush have forged a big time relationship with rapper Snoop Dogg, and the guys from the Nickelodeon hit show insist the D-O-Double G is not the same artist of yester-year.

“He’s very much a family man,” revealed BTR’s Carlos Pena on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” The group sat down for a quick interview and performed an acoustic version of the song “Boyfriend.” The studio track features Snoop. “He was great to work with.”

“I don’t think the kids who would watch the episode now, would know anything about his (past),” insisted actor/singer Kendall Schmidt. “Most of them are pretty young. They know him from Katy Perry (‘California Gurls’).”

Schmidt added that Snoop commented to the boys on how impressed he was with people’s reaction to the rapper’s cameos and affiliation with the show: for the first time in his career, 5 year-olds approach Snoop in public to comment on his work.

“We went to one of his concerts and he was nice enough to invite us back stage and we had a great time,” said Logan Henderson. “He lives and breathes music.”

“He gets done playing a show and he goes back there and he’s still deejaying music,” James Maslow continued, elaborating on the experience backstage with one of the most influential West Coast emcees of all time. “He’s with a bunch of his friends and family. He’s very close with his family and a lot of them are a part of his hair and makeup. It’s just him hanging out with his closest friends, playing music.”

Schmidt also recalled one point during the party where someone stepped on a cord, cutting the music. Snoop, who will not let anyone else touch the computer, immediately wanted to know who was responsible. BTR insisted it was none of them – but regardless, it certainly sounds like a funny scene for a future episode.

The guys currently have ten more episodes of the show’s second season to film. Afterwards – it’s on the road for what BTR hopes will be an international tour.
