Music lover and devoted dad Johnny Depp is said to have invited British pop sensations One Direction to his LA home so his daughter could meet the band. Lily-Rose, 13, is such a huge fan of the famous five that her dad Johnny arranged for the chart toppers to swing by his home recording studio. Press Association reports that after discovering the group were in town, the Sweeney Todd actor "made a few calls", and that the star couldn't resist joining in their exclusive set. "He brought out his piano and guitars for the boys to test and they had a little jam session," the source added.


Whilst Johnny may be a superstar to the rest of the word, Lily-Rose was not so impressed when her dad joined music's hottest stars. The teenager apparently "watched with her blushing mates while her dad temporarily joined the world's biggest boyband."Lily-Rose is Johnny's daughter by his partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis. The pair sadly split back in June, but have tried to keep their separation as amicable as possible. As well as their teenage daughter, whose full name is Lily-Rose Melody Depp, the couple also have a 10-year-old son, John Christopher Depp III. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has made no secret of his musical ability. Johnny has previously joined rockers Alice Cooper and the Black Keys on stage during their shows, and for his friend David Furnish's 50th birthday he provided a musical serenade for the guests.


One Direction are currently stateside promoting their new album Take Me Home. Niall, Harry, Zayn, Louis and Liam appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show causing a stir amongst the audience members. Harry revealed his latest tattoos - a pair of birds on his chest. When asked about them he told the 54-year-old chat show queen: "I just like them, they're kind of like, sailor-y... about, like, travelling. Birds fly. We fly a lot."

Irish-born Niall knew just how to fire up the female fans in the audience when asked about his taste in women. "I like someone that's cute. Someone that I can have a laugh with. And I also like people that are American. And you all qualify!" he said, prompting a wave of excited screams. Harry confirmed his taste in older women when he joked to Ellen: "I just think someone fun. It helps if they're nice, someone like you."
