One Direction sold the most merch out of any popstar in 2014. Are we surprised?

Not too long ago MP! went undercover (ok, we googled a bit) to investigate the current state of affairs in the world of pop merchandise. We were largely underwhelmed by what we found but it turns out you lot just can’t get enough of the stuff, especially when it comes to One Direction. Obvs’.

It’s just been revealed that the lads have had the most merch sold on U.K. eBay over the past three months – 142,000 units to be exact. Crikey! The band have even beat out the likes of old school artists like Prince, Elvis, Beyonce, U2, Kylie Minogue and Madonna sold during the same period, proving once again that the five-some are still a major pop force to be reckoned with.
