One Direction Got Teenage Bras Thrown at Them at BB&T Center, Sunrise, June 13

BB&T Center, Sunrise

Better Than: The eardrum reconstructive surgery we will be having next week. Earplugs or not, those tweens have a set of lungs on them.

It's a strange thing to be a 25-year-old woman at a One Direction concert. When asked to cover this show, it was a no brainer. I said yes. Boy bands and I go way back. Way, way back.

You must understand, I grew up in Orlando during the times of Lou Pearlman with his incredible ability to put together a group that placed all the girls' training bras in knots. One year, I saw 'N Sync not once, but twice, because they started and ended their U.S. tour in Central Florida. Why my parents agreed to pay for this, I didn't really understand. Well, that was until last night.
