Niall Horan has revealed that he doesn’t feel as famous in Ireland as he does in Los Angeles.
The former One-Direction star has been busy touring his debut solo album, which saw him come back to Ireland to play a sold out gig in the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, and he has revealed that he doesn’t spend as much time as he would like in his home country.
“No one blows smoke up my a** at home. All my school mates, friends from Ireland, I fall right back into that group, and I don’t feel like Famous Niall Horan,” Niall told Shortlist magazine.
“I live half and half between London and LA. Last year I think I spent less than six days in Ireland, which is nuts. I spent the first 16 years of my life there and now I can barely do a week.”
The 24-year-old lives between London and LA since rising to fame in 2010, and admits that he can live a pretty normal life in London too.
“In London people don’t really pay attention to me – in a good way. I’m not saying everyone should know who I am, but I go on the Tube, or walk down the street, absolutely no problem.”
