Sir Elton John has given his advice to One Direction following their rise to worldwide fame.

The singer-songwriter suggested that the boyband "enjoy" their success and to not get "too carried away" with the dangers that fame brings.

"If I had to give them advice I would say keep your original friends, keep good counsel with them," he told The Sun.

"Try not to get too carried away with the clubs and all that crap - but it's very difficult, because I did.

"If you enjoy it, you're young, it's a different thing, just go for it. Just make sure you don't get too drunk. What am I saying - I did the f**king same! Just go for it and see what happens.

He added: "The thing is, it was just me. There are five of them together, they have each other to keep strong.

"Niall and Harry have now been in the paper a lot. I feel for them but I'm thrilled for them. They're also having a great time. Enjoy it, for f**k's sake enjoy it. If you don't enjoy it then there's no point."

John also stated that he plans never to join Twitter, for fear of accidentally upsetting too many people with his comments.

"It would end my career. I'd be in prison after about two days," he said.

"I mean, no, God almighty. Me and my big mouth, no thank you. That would be the end of the career."

The star recently said that he "definitely" plans to raise another child with partner David Furnish in the near future.

Elton John scored his first UK number one album in 22 years earlier today (July 22) with his Pnau collaboration Good Morning to the Night.
