Not that One Direction need any advice, but former boyband sensation New Kids on the Block (not so much kids any more) have offered up some words of wisdom on hitting it big.

Back in the day, NKOTB was all the rage, but then their star power burned out. Hey, it happens. But will it happen to 1D anytime soon? New Kids' advice? Enjoy the fame while you've got it.

NKOTB's Joey McIntyre told EntertainmentWise: "In an ideal world to get three months off for any band--even us growing up--would have been awesome, but that's just not the nature of the business. But when you're in it you've just got to go. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. You know when you're young and you're going non-stop and you are in the biggest group in the world."

He added, "You've just got to ride the wave and hopefully you have good family and good friends around you and you realize there is more to life than being a popstar."

Solid advice.
