They may be the biggest boy band in the world right now but even One Direction get starstruck, and who can blame them after meeting hip-hop mogul Jay-Z for the first time.

Group member Liam Payne couldn't believe his luck when he bumped into 'Watch The Throne' rapper Jay-Z while out in the Big Apple on Tuesday and even managed to get a snap with the superstar.

"Alssoooo my biggest news todayy i met one of my idols and couldnt even look him in the eye...," Liam tweeted beside a photo with the rapper.

Not only did they get to hang out with the biggest rapper in the world, but they got to have a jamming session with Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp earlier this week.

"Johnny found out 1D were in town and, after making a few calls, they came round to his studio,” a source told The Sun.

The insider went on: “He brought out his piano and guitars for the boys to test and they had a little jam session.

“Lily Rose just watched with her blushing mates while her dad temporarily joined the world’s biggest boyband.”

Meanwhile, Jay-Z seems to be discovering his inner love for pop as he jumped on stage with Justin Bieber who was performing on his 'Believe' tour in Brooklyn.

"Meant alot to have the man himself come show love tonight. thanks @JayZ ...happy to be in Brooklyn today," Justin tweeted after the show.

We're so not jealous!
