When most celebrities run into the paparazzi, they’re understandably annoyed (and occasionally irrational — Miley Cyrus, we’re talking to you), but not One Direction’s Niall Horan. Confirming that he is actually the most adorable human ever, Niall’s not mad about the insane paparazzi incident that happened to him and his bandmates when they arrived at LAX earlier this week — he’s sad about the effect it had on his fans.

This week, each member is sitting down with E! News to promote their upcoming release, Midnight Memories, and yesterday was Niall’s turn.

“They’re quite aggressive, the paparazzi here,” Niall admitted. “I wasn’t expecting it, to be honest. There were loads of paps, like 50-60 paps, and the fans were behind them.”

Which leads us to why Niall was left feeling bad after the whole fiasco.

“Someone pushed me and then dragged me to the floor, and Zayn was being dragged around,” the 20-year-old explained. “We felt bad afterwards, ‘cause we let down the fans, but it was actually the paps’ fault.”

Can we hug you, Niall?

Oh, and are you ready for the best news you’ve heard all day? Niall is, in fact, single. Interested in filling the position? Here’s what Niall’s looking for: a girl who sees him as “a normal person” — someone who won’t like him just because he’s in the biggest boyband on the planet right now.

A normal person? Silly Niall — with that face, you are anything but normal. Call us!
