The first time J-14 Magazine met One Direction's Niall Horan backstage at a concert in London back in January, he immediately grabbed a copy of the magazine and pointed at Justin Bieber and said, "J.B. You are the man!" We asked him, "Is he as big here in the U.K. as he is in the U.S.?" "Oh yeah, he's big, big time," Niall told us.
Back then, Niall Horan was just a Justin Bieber fan who loved when he was compared to his idol. "I've been compared to Justin Bieber a few times, which I can't complain about," Niall says.
Fast forward to September and Niall is hanging out at Justin Bieber's house -- doing what?! Cooking noodles with him!
Yes, it seems like a page out of Fan Fiction, but Niall found himself side-by-side with Justin in his kitchen. There stood Justin behind the stove wearing a backwards cap and a big grin as he served Niall noodles. Niall carefully held out a square-shaped bowl with two hands and had a slight look of concern on his face.
Justin Tweeted the black-and-white photo at 1:57 a.m. L.A. time on September 7 with the caption "At my house cookin some noodles with @NiallOfficial", just hours after One Direction won three MTV VMA Awards.
And Niall Horan wasn't the only one hanging out with Justin Bieber. Just 49 minutes before that, Justin Tweeted a photo of himself with both Niall and Zayn Malik with the caption, "chillin with the homies."

But back to the big question: Who ate more noodles: Justin Bieber or Niall Horan? No contest there --Â it was Niall Horan all the way! "They were good but he wouldn't eat them, so I ate his too! 2 bowls! #hardasnails"
So that means basically Justin Bieber cooked noodles for Niall Horan to eat? This just might be our favorite celebrity story of the year. Nah, make that of all time. Maybe...
What do you guys think of Justin Bieber and Niall Horan hanging out?
