One Direction fan Emma Lou, 19, from Newcastle says One Direction want to 'shake off the pop star image' following the video of Zayn Malik smoking what could be 'drugs'.
Emma is a 'superfan' and has tattoos of song lyrics - even a quote from Louis Tomlinson's favourite TV show.
She said 'I think it's up to them. The security men with them should've tried taking them away. Cannabis messes with your head if smoked long term. They should know the effects it'll have on them and stop. They won't because they want to shake off the pop star image.'
Bosses at the Stadium of Light say last night's One Direction concert generated around three million pounds for the local economy.
Sunderland’s Stadium of Light welcomed 52,000 spectators last night as One Direction began their UK tour on Wearside.
Fans of the X Factor band began queuing outside Sunderland's Stadium of Light before dawn for the first leg of their UK tour.
