One Direction isn't just going in one direction anymore.
As much as it pains my heart to say this, Zayn Malik, once a member of the world's biggest boy band, is now no longer a part of this group. On March 25th at 12:30 pm, a link to a Facebook post was tweeted out. The post broke the hearts of millions of fans around the world, me included. Their album titled "Four" will now only be sung by four of the five. Ironic maybe?
Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne will continue on to create a fifth album despite the loss of their fifth member.
"The four of us will now continue." One Direction said, "We're looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour."
Malik claims that he's leaving because he wants "to be a normal 22-year-old." If this is his actual reason for leaving, I can't help but to think of how stupid he sounds. To the true fans he will always be Zayn Malik from One Direction. The fame won't stop. The only thing that is going to change is the One Direction Wikipedia page. And maybe the minor detail that he will no longer be performing with One Direction.
#AlwaysInOurHeartsZaynMalik trended worldwide on Twitter.
Zayn Malik, you and your high notes are always in our hearts.
