Just when we thought we couldn’t handle another celebrity breakup, we hear that One Direction is also “going on a break.” Simon Cowell told The Sun that the boy band will take a break after their upcoming fifth album. I don’t know about you, but every time a friend of mine has gone on a “break,” the breakup doesn’t take long to follow. Cowell revealed:
“In terms of the band, they’ve got enough hits now they can take some time off and do some other stuff they want to do. Then I hope they’ll have a little bit of time apart and want to get back together again. It’s a fun job, but it’s absolutely their decision.”
Obviously with Zayn Malik leaving the band in March and the recent news that Louis Tomlinson is going to be a father, this news isn’t too shocking.
In the interview, Simon Cowell also reveals what he told Louis about the unplanned pregnancy with LA stylist Briana Jungwirth.
“I said to him, ‘You man up. You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that…I’ve received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them. This is your business, but I’m here for you.”
He scoffs at the idea that the pregnancy will hurt One Direction’s image.
“He didn’t kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it’s a plus, not a negative.”
Directioners, start ripping down your shrines.
