One Direction's Niall Horan Announces (Fake) Engagement to Katy Perry

It all started when Katy appeared on the British version of X Factor on October 19, and reminisced about the fact that when she was a guest on the show in 2010, it was her vote that allowed then-16-year-old solo artist Niall to advance to the boot camp stage of the competition.  He was then put together with some of the other solo boys into a new group called One Direction and, of course, the rest is history. 

Niall responded to Katy's appearance by tweeting, "I love you ! Thank you! Ps. Will u marry me?"

Now, flash forward to Friday, November 1, when both One Direction and Katy appeared on the same TV show in Japan.  Niall posted a photo of Katy cuddling up to him, with the caption, "she said yes ! It's happening! Haha!"  He then posted a photo of himself, Katy and the rest of 1D with the caption, "Me and my groomsmen and my lovely wife hahahaha." 

He added, "Had such a laugh [in Tokyo] with the lads and ! Love that girl!"

Sadly, this legendary Twitter romance is not to be, since Katy is happily involved with John Mayer.
