Zayn Malik may not be out of the spotlight for long, as the former One Direction member admitted to The Sun he's already begun work on a solo album.

The Daily Mirror has more:

A source told Now: “Zayn has a clear vision for the music he wants to create, and the direction he wants to take his career in.

'He's been writing for a while now during his downtime on tour and has already recorded two tracks this week alone.”

They continued: “The music he's making is completely different to anything One Direction have ever done before, it's very slowed down R&B and quite sexual. It's going to blow fans' minds.”

One Direction's Harry Styles Chokes Up On Stage Following Zayn Malik's Departure: VIDEO


Zayn Malik's departure yesterday from boy band One Direction had Harry Styles heartbroken during last night's concert in Indonesia.

BBC notes:

It is unclear from the footage whether Harry, 21, was crying because of the news of Zayn or because fans were showing support by shouting his name.

At one point in the concert Liam Payne reportedly comforted him.

In a black T-shirt and with his hair up in his trademark man bun, Harry wandered around the stage with his head in his hands and wiping away tears.


Duck Dynasty lover Liam Payne was also shaken up over Zayn's departure, tweeting last night:

Zayn Malik Leaves One Direction


The world's biggest boy band has lost a member.

Zayn Malik announced he's leaving the group today:

"My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world."

The band said it will continue to perform and record with four members:

"We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we've gone through so much together, so we will always be friends. The four of us will now continue. We're looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour."

Twitter Explodes Over Video of One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Allegedly Saying 'I'm Gay' - WATCH


One Direction bandmates Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson spent Valentine's Day together in Australia, but its a Vine video of the two drunkenly stumbling into their hotel last night that has Twitter afire. 

Vocativ writes:

Tomlinson1Last night a One Direction fan, who calls herself Amber Almighty, posted a Vine video of band member Louis Tomlinson. The shaky audio from this video is nearly impossible to understand. However, Amber claims the singer said “I’m gay, it’s pretty unfortunate,” (which she later slowed down and changed to “I’m gay, it’s pretty important.”)

As a result of the video, the hashtag #ImGayItsPrettyUnfortunate is currently trending worldwide. Tomlinson has yet to respond to the video or hashtag, but if his reactions to previous instances of speculation about his sexuality are any indication, he won't take this well

See both videos for yourself and decide, AFTER THE JUMP...

Harry Styles Asks Niall Horan if He Can Sit on His Face


According to Yahoo! UK, One Direction's Harry Styles responded to this Instagram photo posted by bandmate Niall Horan with a simple request:

"Can I sit on your face? Please?"

Of course the alleged screengrab of the comments could be some Directioner's photoshopped attempt at wishful-thinking slash fiction.

But it has once again sent the 'Harry is gay' fans (see here, here, here, here, and here) and opponents into a Twitter frenzy.


One Direction's Niall Horan Criticized After Hijacking Friend's Twitter Account With 'Gay Joke' Tweet


One Direction's Niall Horan landed in a bit of hot water last week after he and The Voice of Ireland host Eoghan McDermott supposedly hijacked a friend's Twitter account and posted a joke about the friend's sexuality.

Horan and McDermott were hanging out with Irish singer Niall Breslin on St. Stephen's Day (Dec. 26) when this (since deleted) tweet was sent out on Breslin's twitter account:

“I’ve been experimenting with my sexuality. No conclusions reached as of yet but it’s been a fun ride so far.”

Breslin quickly apologized with a photo reply:


Backlash against Horan and McDermott was swift, with many on Twitter accusing the trio of sending a bad message to gay youth. 

Irish hurler Conor Cusack, who came out of the closet earlier this year, also tweeted his displeasure with the trio's shenanigans:

@nbrez @eoghanmcdermo @NiallOfficial subtle tweets like that exploiting a persons sexuality in a negative way doesn't help things fellas

McDermott and Breslin later both expressed remorse for the tweet:

Horan though, has kept mum about the entire affair.
