"Who the f**k is saying that?" Bugg asked ShortList.

"Oh, I'm pretty sure they have a good laugh. But it's easy to, isn't it? When you don't have to write any songs.

"People [call them the new Beatles] because they broke America, but that don't mean a thing."

He added: "I mean, [One Direction] must know that they're terrible.

"They must know... Calling them the new rock stars is a ridiculous statement. And people should stop making it."

The singer-songwriter had previously claimed that One Direction will be forgotten because "young girls will grow up".
