but let's just blame the x factor

A lot of larries and Louis stans on twitter have been trashing Harry not even a few days after his step father died because of the Louis article. How do you feel about that?

Dude, it’s not even 7 in the morning. Why are you coming at me with this?

But to answer your question, I think it’s bullshit. And once again, the fandom is looking for something to bitch about. 

I understand why some people are upset, because it seems like Louis didn’t want the hiatus but Harry did and there are some fans who still don’t want the boys to be on hiatus because they miss their music. And I miss their music, too, don’t get me wrong. And you know what? At the time that the hiatus was announced, I didn’t want it at first, either, but now that it’s actually happening, it’s fun seeing them branch out on their own and to see what kind of music they make now that they have the partial freedom to make their own choices. 

If Harry wanted to go solo, he had so many chances to go solo before the hiatus. Literally, there was a new ‘Harry going solo’ rumor every six months while the band was still together and during the hiatus, as well, before his actual solo stuff was announced. And that’s OK. Let’s not forget how all of the boys went to the X Factor as solo artists. On some level, they all wanted to be independent. They were just put into the group first and that’s how they got their start. It’s as simple as that. Let’s not blame Harry for not letting go of his dream and pursuing it when the moment was right. 

Plus, the boys were overworked. That doesn’t even need to be said. Five albums in five years, hundreds of tour dates, dozens of award show appearances and just constantly moving around has got to be draining. I’ll never know how draining, but I can only imagine. If Harry was the first one to suggest the break, I wouldn’t blame him. I wouldn’t blame any of them. 

So even if Louis didn’t want the hiatus at the time (or maybe he did, who really knows for sure?) he’s probably more comfortable with it now and maybe is even enjoying it now that he gets to make different music. He’ll put out an album and hopefully tour and get to see just how unforgettable he really is and how much his fans love and support him.
