Katy Perry and Niall Horan of One Direction onstage during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards at Staples Center on …
Directioners are as devoted (if not more so) to One Direction as Beliebers are to Justin Bieber, so it came as a surprise that they didn't mind Katy Perry flirting with the Brit boy band last night.
At the MTV Video Music Awards Thursday night, Katy Perry presented the award (and then proceeded to break it, oops!) for Best Pop Video to the boys, and made their teenage dreams come true by surprising each of the much younger musicians with a peck on the lips as they walked onto the stage.

"Wow, thank you very much Katy. Thanks for the kiss," front man Niall Horan said as he showed off the trophy (one of three the band won that night) to the crowd. The 18-year-old pop star was so proud of their PDA that he immediately took to Twitter to celebrate it.
"@katyperry looks like its official ... me and you," he tweeted with a photo of the kiss.
And Perry's reply was even more flirty.
"I'll be your Mrs. Robinson...," the 27-year-old "Teenage Dream" singer wrote back.
Perry is reportedly single after splitting with John Mayer earlier this month, but, don't worry, Horan isn't really interested. He admitted in June that he was romancing Demi Lovato online, who he reportedly met in person for the first time at the VMAs last night.

Directioners rallied together in support of Perry (a surprise considering how Beliebers reacted when Bieber first kissed Selena Gomez), retweeting the following good natured message written by a Harry Styles fan: "He got to meet Demi, kiss Katy Perry, win 3 VMAs and hang out with Justin Bieber. It must have been the best night of Niall's life."
