From The Beatles through to One Direction, we take a look at the craziest fans ever! Warning: may include tattoos.
Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Harry Styles' fans, known as 'Directioners', are famously passionate. In Channel 4's recently documentary Crazy About One Direction, one fan took copying her idols to the next level: 'The whole reason I got braces was because Niall has braces. I didn't really need braces.'
Irish boyband Westlife had a rabid following until they disbanded in 2012. Jane Fogg loved the band so much, her husband issued her an ultimatum: him or them. He didn't get the answer he was looking for. 'I love them more than I loved him,' admitted Jane in November 2011. 'It is the biggest thing in my life.'
Over their record breaking eight-night stint at Wembley Stadium in the summer of 2011, Take That performed to nearly 500,000 people. They've always had a devoted fan base: when the band split in 1996, counselling lines were set up for distraught fans to phone!
Duran Duran's fans loved the band so much it sometimes got out of hand...! 'It became so crazy that some of the venues we visited had to call the police because they were afraid they'd be overrun by marauding teenagers,' wrote Andy Taylor in the Daily Mail.
With the most followers on Twitter, Justin Bieber is one loved pop star. His fans call themselves 'Beliebers', and like any fans, they'll do anything to get closer to their idol. So when Justin took one sip from some sparkling water on TV in New Zealand, Emma Hall-Philips and her mother decided to put the bottle up for auction - only for it to sell for a $624! They donated the money to cancer charity CanTeen. 'I’m not a crazy Justin Bieber fan,' said Emma, 16. 'I’d rather sell it and give money to a good cause.'
The Wanted receive so many gifts from their besotted fans, people often go out of the way to make theirs stand out. '[Some fans] sent us voodoo dolls, one of each of us. But they weren't the ones that you stick pins in,' Jay told the Daily Star. 'They were like sexual voodoo dolls.'
Jessie J's fans are known as Heartbeats. After the Price Tag singer broke her leg in 2011, one fan even broke their leg and told Jessie she wanted to look 'just like' her.
Miley Cyrus may have caused controversy over her performance at the MTV VMAs, but one fan certainly isn't critical. Carl McCoid, pictured, has 19 tattoos related to Miley... And counting! Picture: Twitter
The Beatles are one of the most successful bands of all time. When they first broke onto the scene, their largely teenage girl fan base was so rabid at live shows that the term 'Beatlemania' was coined. Indeed, the band stopped touring in 1966 because they reportedly found it hard to hear themselves above the screaming as they performed!
Spandau Ballet's fans still hang on their every word to this day. 'I said once I liked chocolate chip cookies and now I get full packets of them thrown at me on stage,' Tony Hadley told the Mirror. 'I wish I’d said it was Cartier watches.'
