Singer-songwriter Boy George says that he would be disappointed if all the members of boy band One Direction weren't bisexual.

The 52-year-old openly gay George told tabloid Daily Star: “The odds are one of One Direction must be gay. I think everyone is a bit bisexual deep down. So the odds are they are probably all bisexual. They're rock stars so it's what you'd expect, isn't it? I'd be disappointed if they weren't”

One Direction, consisting of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, is often described as part of a new “British invasion” of the United States. The band's concert film, One Direction: This Is Us, opened over the weekend.

George and Payne exchanged Twitter messages following allegations that Horan refused to take a picture for George's niece.

George, the frontman of the 80's British pop group Culture Club, said that he “wouldn't know who One Direction were if they fell on my head. I'm older than them, they should treat me with respect. I blocked all the band, I couldn't be bothered to hear anything they said but I couldn't help winding up their fans.”
