Oh no! Could Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson be breaking up? We’ve got the answer straight from the horses mouths.
The boys of One Direction —Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — have been together, as a band, for four years, they’re about to release their fourth album, and they’re all in their 20’s. Considering NSYNC only had three albums before splitting, it’s only natural to worry that 1D may also want to part ways to become solo artists in the near future. We asked the the boys how they feel, and their responses are quite surprising!
One Direction Splitting Up? — Band Reveals If They’d Ever Become Solo Artists
When HollywoodLife.com asked One Direction what the best part about being in a band versus being a solo artist was, Louis was quick to respond.
“Just having each of us, let’s be honest I personally don’t think I’d be able to do it as a solo artist. It’s very intense and hard to comprehend, so it’s good to be able to speak to people who obviously know exactly what you personally are going through,” Louis told HollywoodLife.com in a room full of other reporters.
“Yeah and it’s nice to have somebody there every day who’s going through exactly the same stuff you are. It’s beautiful being in this position but it’s also difficult at times. It’s nice to have guys you can turn to,” Liam added.
While we’d certainly support the boys, no matter what they choose to do, we’re not too surprised by their feelings on the matter.
In the past, the boys admitted they don’t have any desire to seek out solo careers. During a 2012 interview with Barbara Walters, they all scoffed at the idea of trying to emulate Justin Timberlake by having a solo career. Niall Horan said, “I wouldn’t do it. We’re together now, and that’s it.” Zayn Malik agreed, saying, “It’s not even a question.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should the boys of One Direction split up and become solo artists?
