The 'One Thing' star says he feels he can always open up to The X Factor USA judge if he needs advice.

One Direction star Niall Horan has praised close friend Demi Lovato, describing the young singer as "really beautiful" and someone he can turn to for advice at any time

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' singer has been romantically linked to the X Factor USA star several times over the summer, ever since the two struck up a friendship, and Niall says he really respects the actress and singer's honesty about her past.

"The nice thing about Demi is, once you know her, she's really, really beautiful," he confessed in the November issue of Seventeen magazine. "We become good friends.

"It's so crazy that she can be so honest about everything she's gone through. She has a fantastic attitude.

The 'One Thing' singer went on to say that she has become someone he knows he can turn to when he needs advice about anything.

He added: "If I ever needed anything or needed to talk to anybody, I think Demi would be the person to talk to."

Despite repeated claims the two young stars are more than just friends, Demi recently spoke out and insisted that although Niall is an "awesome, sweet guy" she wants to remain single and focus on her career.

One Direction broke the record for the fastest selling US single by a UK artist this week with 'Live While We're Young', while their second album 'Take Me Home' is due out on 12th November.
