Don’t Freak Out But Liam Payne Is Going Solo

*forms One Direction prayer circle*

Posted on

Our hearts collectively broke into a million tiny little pieces when One Direction announced their extended hiatus.

Harry Styles is now an actor.

Yannick Ben: Working w/Harry Styles on Christopher Nolan's #Dunkirk (via his FB) He's a stuntman/actor #harry #pics

Louis Tomlinson is a judge.

Not long now 🙃 @nbcagt #AGT #Judgecuts

Niall Horan is living his best golf life.

And now Liam Payne announced that he's signed a solo record deal with Capitol Records.

Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK. They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps

(Just like his former bandmate Zayn, who already released his debut album.)

All of Twitter quickly went into an immediate RIP 1D meltdown:

Representation of 1D fandom: #OneDirectionIsOverParty

Me: "one direction is coming back they PROMISED US" Also me: "what if 1d is really over" #OneDirectionIsOverParty

"Hiatus" "Promise" "It's far from over" FANDOM RN: #OneDirectionIsOverParty

But since I'm a half-glass-full kind of person, I'm still holding out hope that there will be a 1D reunion in 2017. After all, they are allowed to work on their own projects — it doesn't necessarily mean the end of times.


Because One Direction is family. AND FAMILY MEANS FOREVER.

One direction will always be my home and family but I'm very excited to see what this chapter brings.

Congrats, Liam!
