One Direction star Harry Styles has revealed his bank card was declined when he tried to download the band's own album.

The singer, 18, attempted to buy a copy of Take Me Home just hours before the group entertained thousands of fans in New York.

Fans camped out at the Rockefeller Plaza overnight - with some waiting there since Friday - to watch the quintet perform a free concert live on US TV.

The boyband used the performance, broadcast on NBC's Today Show, to confirm the release of a One Direction 3D movie next year.

Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will direct the film.

Before part of New York came to a standstill as fans watched the performance, Harry wrote on Twitter: "Soooo... I went to download our album this morning. And my card got declined. Hahaha!!"

The band made history in March as the first UK pop group to debut at No 1 on America's Billboard album chart with their first album Up All Night.

Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are thought to have amassed a £26.33 million fortune since shooting to fame on The X Factor.

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
