During James Corden’s Late Late show, One Direction appeared as guests. A sketch was also arranged in which One Direction agreed to play a game of Dodgeball with their host. The game was played against an all-female team called the Ball Busters. One D’s team was dubbed Corden’s Angels. In the end, the Angels lost, but not before Harry Styles got hot in his privates according to AceShowbiz.
Many questions were asked, among which was the one about Zayn Malik and his departure from the band. The now foursome told James that his decision to leave did have an impact on them. They were irritated by the fact that he left them half-way through the world tour.
According to Liam Payne, they were all angry initially, as well as surprised. But after some time had passed, he confessed that they probably felt the vibe from Zayn and that he was getting ready to leave. He also said that it was obvious that there were some elements of the profession that Zayn didn’t like, but there were certain parts that he did enjoy. However, the negatives overpowered the positives. Liam claims that, if you are unhappy with your job, you should go where you feel most comfortable, and that’s that. He added that the rest of the band wished him all the best in his future life and career.
There was also an awkward situation that happened earlier this month. An online feud was initiated when Louis commented on a photo of Naughty Boy and Zayn. The two were captured hanging out, and Louis left a comment on the picture, mocking them. This got Zayn to answer back to Louis saying “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”
If that wasn’t enough, Louis supposedly told that the music producer was “riding on the back of someone else’s career”.
On the question of whether the two are still in touch, Louis answered that, even though it’s been rough and a bit of back and forth, he believes that they ended up on good terms with Zayn.
Further on Louis mentioned that Twitter is great for communicating. The fans love it and it’s easy to connect with them in that way, but it’s also good for saying something that should probably be left unsaid. He also comments that in this case it might have been bad to do so, but it’s all for the best in the long run.
The foursome also announced that, even though one of them decided to leave the band, they have no plans on breaking up. They’re here to stay, at least for a while. According to Niall, they look forward to make some more records and go on more tours, since they really enjoy it!
A reminder – One Direction were contestants of 2010’s X factor, where they ended up third to Matt Cardle and Rebecca Ferguson. After 5 successful years, Zayn Malik decided to leave the band in March of 2015, and start working seriously on his solo career.
