Well, that implosion happened at roughly the schedule I thought it would. After the highly publicized exit of Zayn Malik from British boy band One Direction
, it now appears that One Direction is going on a hiatus. For those of you who don't understand what the word "hiatus" actually means in the music industry, there's a good chance this means One Direction have actually completely broken up. So, for all of you One Directioners out there, I'm sure this is tough. I feel your pain. But, for the rest of us, if this means I never have to f***ing hear "What Makes You Beautiful" ever again, then a bunch of teenage girls crying because this Simon Cowell created product is no more is a small price to pay.
Serious question though: is there a Justin Timberlake in this group? None of these guys are going to have anything resembling a real solo career now that the group is over, right? It just isn't happening.
