One Direction: A New Direction?


Rumour has it that One Direction are in trouble.

They are currently on tour in USA and seemingly Harry Styles is staying in a separate hotel from the rest of the lads. There has been talk of Harry leaving the band to go solo recently. Could this be the beginning of the end? The boys have said they will definitely be staying together to release another 2 albums, so you could say fans don’t have to panic yet.

Ultimately though, when it comes to boy bands, there is always a newer fresher act waiting in the wings to push the current favourites off their pedestals. This could be the band formed by Simon Cowell in this year’s X Factor. He has put together a group from various contestants who didn’t make the cut on their own. There are 8 lads in this new act and they are being tipped for greatness.
