If you’re a parent or grandparent, chances are back-to-school is in your current vocabulary, and if you’re kids or grand kids are fans of pop group One Direction, you may have to be the bearer of sad news when they get home today.
TMZ.com reports One Direction… is calling it… an extended hiatus.
The group… is no longer a group… at least for now.
Their plan is to allow each group member to go solo for a while. Which may be a polite way of saying, “Hey, if whatever we do separately doesn’t work, we can always end our separation, and do another album.”
Rumors continue that group member Harry Styles may take a similar solo route former member Zayn Malik did. Time will tell whether Zayn’s move is successful.
So, parents and grandparents, there you go. Be gentle the way you tell your back-to-schoolers. No one wants to have to dodge a back-pack flying through the air, filled with heavy books.
