The infamous British-Irish boy band is clearly coming to an end, and the fans are crying over it. Literally. They’ve been the top selling boy band since the Backstreet Boys, and have been going strong for over six years. But as they begin to grow older, the fans feel as if they’re spreading apart and starting to go their own ways. One of the five has already left, Zayn Malik. He wanted to take time off the band to focus on himself more, and even broke up with his fiance of two years. Though he is no longer in the band, he’s already in the studio recording an album with some top notch celebs like Lana Del Rey, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Tyler the Creator. Not to mention the fact that every singer wants to work with him at the moment. I mean have you heard his vocals?!

So, with the four left of the band, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Harry Styles,  they’ve decided that this tour would be their last. Which is making the people go crazy. They’ve sold out any event they have left including concerts, meet ups, and interview sessions. The fans are begging them to stay, but they can’t see that they’re growing up. They’re no longer the little boys that were on X Factor, or even the boys they were two years ago. They’re grown men now and need to start a life for themselves.

Zayn Malik is already back in the recording studio as I said before, but the other boys have goals of their own too. Liam Payne says he would like to start a family, and be normal person, not just seen as a celebrity. Louis Tomlinson would actually like to begin modeling alongside his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder. Niall Horan and Harry Styles really don’t have things figured out just yet, but they might want to go back in the studio after a break and go solo.

Though the boys will be missed, they’ll always be the pop princes of our century. And for all you 1D fans out there, they’re supposedly working on one last song as a group!
