They’ve barely been parted a year, and already, it seems the One Direction lads are thinking of a reunion.
Usually, it takes several solo flops, a sketchy presenting slot, a reality TV appearance and a bankruptcy to get a boyband back on the road and in the studio. But Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Liam Payne have been anything but unsuccessful since they’ve parted company.
Harry is one of the stars in one of this year’s biggest movies, Dunkirk, with a not unsuccessful solo album out there. Liam has fathered a baby with Cheryl called Bear, Niall’s solo acoustic ventures have been melting teenage hearts the world over while Louis… Well. He’s on ‘Lorraine’ calling for a comeback already.
“There is no question of if – it’s a must,” Tomlinson said when asked about a reunion. “And I think we’re all on the same page with that one. It would be too difficult for any of us to say no. It’s one of those ones.”
He went on to voice his anger at media assumptions the lads no longer get on.
“It is so frustrating when I read stories in the press saying we don’t like each other,” he explained. “I feel like a big brother to all of the boys.
“When I see videos of Niall playing to a stadium or Harry standing next to people like Tom Hardy at a film premiere, I just feel so proud. It’s amazing. It’s so nice.”
Absolutely no word, however, black sheep of the 1D family Zayn Malik, who is having a lovely time frollicking around with super model Gigi Hadid, starring on the cover of Vogue and making music.
Tomlinson has a new song out, called “Back To You”, which features Bebe Rexha. If you like that sort of thing, it’s below.
