“My favorite Irish man in the world is Niall Horan from One Direction. I’m hearing a rumor you and he might work together on some music, maybe even a duet, is this something that’s going to happen?” James asked Shawn. “Definitely, yeah,” Shawn said. "I mean, he’s awesome. I’ve been talking to him for a long time. But it’s like, it’s annoying because, you know, I’ll be in London, ‘I’ll be like, Niall, I’m here,’ he’ll be like, ‘Just landed in L.A.’ and vice-versa. So, ya, when we get a second I want to write with him a bunch, for sure."
