MULLINGAR, UK: Niall Horan wants a normal girlfriend. The 20-year-old One Direction singer finds it difficult to find love while being a member of the band, as he wants his future girlfriend to be an ordinary girl who isn’t fazed by his success.

“You have to find the one who just sees you as a normal person, which is exactly what I am, and just like you for who you are and not because I’m in One Direction,” he said. Niall and his bandmates caused a stir when they were greeted by a mob of paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday during which Niall was knocked to the ground by photographers while a fan was accidentally hit in the face by Zayn Malik as a result of the chaos. “I wasn’t expecting it. There were loads of paps -50, 60 paps - and the fans were behind them,” he said. “They start pushing each other, which meant we got pushed. Then someone pushed me and dragged me to the floor, and then it was all a bit crazy and Zayn was being dragged around.
