We have been waiting for absolutely hours to hear what the rest of the One Direction boys have to say about Zayn Malik quitting the band and we finally have 3/4 broken silences with Louis Tomlinson joining Harry Styles and Liam Payne to address the fans directly over on his Twitter page.
Following in his bandmates’ footsteps, the 23-year-old didn’t outright acknowledge Zayn’s shocking departure from 1D, but did thank all of their fans for the support and vowed to make the best fifth album ever.
But how can it be the best album ever without Zayn’s high notes, hmm?
Writing on his social media page, the Doncaster babe wrote: “Been a crazy couple of days but know that we are going to work harder than ever to deliver the best album we’ve ever made for you guys !
“Your support has been incredible , truly incredible so thank you so much !”
You don’t need to thank us, love, we’re in it for the long haul… But please, you really don’t have to work any harder than you already do.
Zayn quit the band in a statement that revealed that he is desperate to have a “normal” life, with being in the biggest boyband on the planet leaving him feeling “stressed”, “depressed”, and “exhausted” – with that last one coming as no surprise considering One Direction have had over 300 tour dates in just four years, alongside recording four albums, filming two feature films, and basically having hardly any breaks.
We mean, no wonder the poor guy is feeling a little bit worse for wear.
Earlier today Harry took to Twitter to share his love for the band’s fans, simply writing: “All the love as always. H.”
And Liam added over on his page: “So glad to be in bed after a long and strange 24 hours.”
Niall Horan and Zayn himself are yet to comment publicly on the whole shebang, and we just hope that everybody is okay and we’re not at risk of losing any more members to their gruelling schedule, with this fifth album on top of their world tour sparking concern within the fandom:
We mean, it’s been four years now - surely the lads deserve some kind of extended break and a bit of ‘me time’?
