This is the biggest news of the day in music that I’ve heard from everywhere…
…and that is that Zayn Malik is officially no longer a part of One Direction!
I’m a fan of One Direction! I was ashamed to say that years ago, but I’ve grown into my cringe-worthy love for the boys of 1D! HAHA My friends have been egging me on for years to like them and whenever I heard “Story Of My Life” for the first time…that was it!
I don’t have posters of the boys on my walls, or have a t-shirt, and I’ve never attended a concert of theirs…so basically I like them safely from afar! HAHA
On this gloomy Wednesday, March 25th, one of every girl’s favorite One Direction members, Zayn Malik, officially announced his departure from the band!
See the update on the band’s official Facebook page:
“…if I’ve let anyone down.” You mean the MILLIONS of One Direction fans all over the world that know you and love you?!
Sorry guys HAHA Just had to get that out of my system 😉
I like how One Direction and Simon Cowell (who is essentially their creator) made it entirely clear that the band is going to continue on as a four member group. I honestly think they did that so that the internet would not break! LOL One Direction fans are passionate and they really did need a confirmation that the band is carrying on without Mr. Malik.
Zayn took off two tour dates recently due to “stress” after online rumors that placated that he had cheated on his fiancée Perrie Edwards of the English girl group Little Mix!
I guess he just wants to do as he said and become a normal 22 year old, but don’t you think it will take a while for his fame to wear off? Well I guess maybe not because as long as he doesn’t pull a Justin Timberlake and go solo, he might be able to pull off living a normal life like Chris Kirkpatrick of *NSYNC! 😀
My best friend is obsessed with Zayn and she texted me the news today with a crying emoticon. I know she’s going to be pretty upset by this for a while and to be honest…it’s difficult for me to imagine this band as a 4 member group, but I guess the Backstreet Boys are proof of it working since Kevin Richardson left the group from June 2006 until he rejoined in April 2012!
I’m sincerely hoping that Zayn doesn’t go the Timberlake or Kirkpatrick route, but that he pulls off a seamless Kevin Richardson and shows back up in the group within the next 5-6 years! That may be all the time he needs to be “normal”.
I know Twitter is on fire right now with the many broken hearts, but hey! Maybe he did actually cheat on his fiancée and all you girls might have a chance at becoming Mrs. Malik again! Okay! I’m just trying to find a silver lining!!
Good luck Zayn on all your future endeavors & long live One Direction!
