when anyone says any of the boys names in public I just feel like I’m being personally called out.. like someone will be like “Harry Styles” off-handedly and I’ll be like… please leave my personal life out of this
Yeah, of course it is. In reality, this happens with a lot of bands, but I think the difference with us is, there is a real - and I’m sure you’ve felt it from the times you’ve interviewed us - there is a real sense of, we're like brothers, honestly, and I think the press like to write that it’s so competitive and all this kind of thing, but in reality - I’ve said before - if I didn't have a job right now, and had never got into any of this - and me sister's doing really well - l’m never jealous or competitive. I’m just so, so proud, and that’s the same way I feel when I see Niall playing these great radio shows in America to so many people, and see Harry stood next to Tom Hardy. You know, it's unbelievable , yeah. But to finish, of course, one day, I don’t know when, but yeah, well of course we’ll get back together. It’s a no brainer.
Is the hiatus true? Louis on BBC Radio. BTY release day.
Louis with a pretty definitive answer on the hiatus, and another Harry mention.
In roughly chronological order. In some cases they’re literally just mentioning it, answering the oft-repeated ‘what will you do during this hiatus?’. I’m certain this isn’t comprehensive, but it’s pretty long, so I’m including a cut.
Harry was responding to a reporter across from him, and as far as I could hear, Louis says, “Oh no, never know!” (Summertime Ball, June 2015)
To be honest with you, I wasn’t going to do a solo venture. I was just going to go into songwriting and carry on and do that. But then I was like, ‘You’ve been trying to do this since you were 14 years old. You would be ridiculously stupid to turn down the option to have a deal.’ Coming out of the band, we had some pretty good opportunities around us. I had to do something.
When someone finds out you love one direction then asks how you’re dealing with “the break up” and you know they aren’t worth the whole tortured explanation and your belief system re: The Hiatus™ but you can’t figure out what to say other than “fuck off, becky”:
