Ever since Zayn Malik devastatingly walked away from One Direction and simultaneous broke every heart in the world in one go (probably), there have been more rumours about who’ll be the next to leave the band than we’ve had hot dinners, ice cream and jelly.
Not combined. That would be weird.
ANYWAY, Louis Walsh, who hinted that Perrie Edwards was partly to blame for Zayn leaving (NOT COOL), has stuck his oar in and hinted that Harry Styles will now be the first to go solo.
Except that he won’t because no thank you.
Just when things finally seem to be going smoothly in the fandom, what with the wonderful Directioners starting a campaign to get the Louis Tomlinson-led track ‘No Control’ to number one, LouLou has now spoken out to say he reckons Hazza is the “global star” in the group.
THEY’RE ALL GLOBAL STARS Y’KNOW. ALL. OF. THEM.
Speaking to Mirror Celeb about what will happen when (ahem, sorry IF. AKA NEVER) 1D go solo, Louis said: “Harry’s a star. He will be a global star and I think he’s going to do movies. He’s got the ambition, the talent and the drive. He knows how to work the room and he’s nice to everybody.
“I’ve heard nothing but good things about Harry [same, babes. Obvs]. Niall will do well, but Harry is the star.”
We repeat: they’re ALL SHINY, SPARKLY STARS, lighting up our world like nobody else and just generally being very good eggs.
The 62-year-old added that he reckons the rest of the band probably know that Hazza will be a huge success outside of the band.
He argued: “They have to know that, I mean come on. Every night it’s all about Harry. If they were the Rolling Stones he is Mick Jagger. He is the star, he is the focal point. They’ve all got their roles and fan bases.”
Yes, we ruddy love Harry, his luscious locks that were created by hair angels and just about everything else about him, but we’re *PRETTY* sure every night it’s about all of our boys, mmkay, Louis?
We could probably say the same thing about them all being stars until we’re blue in the face, but we will restrain ourselves.
Let’s just stop speculating on who’s leaving next, because let’s be honest, they’re all staying put, yeah?
