The 24-year-old singer quit the boy band in March 2015 before they went on a hiatus, but since departing the Drag Me Down hitmakers he has not spoken to Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan or Harry. Zayn – who is in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid – previously opened up about his struggles with an eating disorder while in One Direction, but these days he insists he’s in a better place.
It’s been a busy week for the One Direction boys. Liam Payne has been giving interviews and gushing about his girlfriend Cheryl, Niall Horan was performing for his devoted fans at a gig at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and Harry Styles united with a teenage victim of the Manchester terror attack and dedicated a performance of his song ‘Sign of the Times’ to 14-year-old Freya Lewis. Last night, Harry also released a video performance of his beautiful track Two Ghosts, showcasing his stunning vocals – and it wasn’t a one off treat.
It’s bad news for fans who wanted Harry Styles or Kendall Jenner all to themselves. In 2013 it was revealed the One Direction singer had linked up with the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star and there have been many attempts to spark up a full relationship, when time in their busy schedules permits. A source told PEOPLE: “They’re rekindling their old romance and Kendall’s so excited and happy about it.
Ever since Harry Styles burst onto the scene back in 2010 he has been compared to Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger. There is a striking resemblance between the pair, and Hollywood are thought to be utilising this similarity by casting the One Direction star as Mick in a new film that will chronicle the Stones’ 1972 album Exile on Main Street, which was recorded in France with a lot of drugs and alcohol. Mick was almost 30 when he recorded the record but filmmakers are confident that they can transform 22-year-old Harry into the frontman with no problem at all.
Unless you’ve spent the weekend hiding under a rock, you’re probably aware that on Friday night One Direction star Harry Styles shocked his fans by cutting off his famous long hair for charity. The star simply shared a photo of his hand holding up the chopped locks with the caption “Whoops” and a link to the Little Princess Trust, an organisation who make donated hair into wigs for children who have lost theirs to cancer. Now the world has been waiting with bated breath to see the first look of Harry without his tumbling curls, and yesterday an X Factor reject sent the Internet into a tizzy after pranking Twitter with a fake pic of the star.
Last month it was reported that Kendall Jenner had ranted to her famous sisters about Harry Styles having an unpleasant body odour in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Last month, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles took to their Twitter pages to thank the dedicated One Direction fans who clubbed together to take out an A4 advert in Billboard magazine that congratulated the boys on the release of their fifth studio album, Made In The AM, and reassured them that we’ll all still be here after their well-deserved 2016 break.
If you are a long term follower of our articles, you’ll probably know that we are currently tracking the very mysterious One Direction concert mascot, Rainbow Bondage Bear, and his little pal, Sugar Baby Bear. Wearing the same Vans T-Shirt as Lou had previously worn on stage, and with the outline of his wrist tattoo seemingly visible, fans tweeted the account in their hundreds to point out the very obvious mishap - with the headline image being changed quickly after.
Look, Harry Edward Styles, you’re already a man after our own heart so there is really no need for you to make us fancy you even blimmin’ more when you go ahead and show your domestic, husband side in front of an entire crowd of people.
Harry Styles allegedly had a secret romance with the Pussycat Dolls star when he was just 19. The fling is believed to have started in late 2013 when Nicole was on a break from Lewis Hamilton and Harry was blown away by the now 37-year-old Hawaiian when they hung out at the X Factor final. They were said to be “wildly flirting” at a Brits party not long after with a source telling the Sun: “It was very clear there was electric chemistry between them and something had gone on.” “They were openly all over each other.”
Forget every other mystery in the history of the world, what we are really, desperately, dying to know is what the ‘eck is going on with Rainbow Bondage Bear and Sugar Baby Bear at One Direction’s shows? Although nobody has any concrete evidence on who is dressing the bears each night, it has been widely speculated that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are the boys behind them - and with their drummer, Josh Devine, posing for pics with the stuffed toys backstage but denying any involvement with their placement each night, we are convinced that it is at least one member of the famous fourpiece. After the bears appeared last night, holding a pamphlet about couples’ train fares and posing next to a framed photo of a hard-to-identify drag queen, a fan took to her Twitter account to reveal that she’d asked security who was in the pic, only to be told the surprising news.
Okay, this stuff with Rainbow Bondage Bear is frazzling our minds more and more by the day, but last night really took the biscuit when another official page for the rainbow stuffed toy appeared on Twitter. For those at the back, Rainbow Bondage Bear and his small little pal, Sugar Baby Bear, appear to be the mysterious One Direction mascots who have been appearing at random shows as though they are trying to tell the fans something about what’s going on behind the scenes for over a year. In the last couple of weeks alone the toys have been positioned next to a framed photo of closeted TV personalities Larry Grayson and John Inman, as well as Liberace and Quentin Crisp.
If you recall, just last week we were lucky enough to welcome One Direction back to the UK as they performed an intimate first London gig at the Apple Music Festival, supported by Little Mix.
In case you missed our entire STREAM of tweets on Tuesday night (erm, sorry about that), we were lucky enough to pop along to Apple Music Festival to watch One Direction, supported by Little Mix, perform LIVE. 1D performed in Camden’s Roundhouse Theatre, which has a capacity of just 1,700 people, and the intimate venue meant that we were able to get up, close, and personal to the boys as they performed their socks off for our viewing pleasure. From our location in the venue, we spotted none other than YouTubers Alfie Deyes and Louise Pentland, also in attendance were Olly Murs, Selena Gomez, and Suki Waterhouse.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you’re probably aware that all is not well within the One Direction fandom following Liam Payne’s interview with iconic gay magazine, Attitude. After already landing himself in hot water once for not acknowledging this huge part of 1D’s fanbase, Liam’s interview (and smouldering cover photos) started out well enough.
“So I said, ‘Okay, Harry and Louis on my left please and Liam and Niall on my right’, and they got in their places. “Then Liam was right next to me, and then Niall and Louis on the outsides. Then I said, ‘Okay, so can we please ALL hold hands please… And kind of hold them up’, and there was a a slight pause and my sis, who was taking pics, said Louis looked hesitant and nervous at first to take Harry’s hand.
Put those hankies away and wash those tear-stained faces, reports that One Direction are set to ‘disband’ in March 2016 are nowhere near as sinister - or as disheartening- as they sound. Earlier tonight it was reported by The Sun that Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were planning on ‘disbanding’ exactly one year after Zayn Malik sensationally quit the group - but the small print reads that they are just going on an “extended hiatus of at least twelve months”.
In today’s news that will make Harry Styles proud, it has been reported that Seaworld have seen an absolutely humongous, ridiculous, and cray-cray 84% drop in their profits. Okay, maybe the jaw-dropping documentary ‘Blackfish back in 2013 is the actual main contributor to the stats, but One Direction definitely paid a teeny, tiny part. Blackfish basically brought to light the cruel treatment of the orca whales when they are being captured by Seaworld, and once they are within their new enclosure.
