About the hiatus, Louis flat out said Harry broke up the band, yes in the Sun so taken with a grain of salt but it matches up with other things OT3 have said. Louis said he was the most confident & happy during MITAM & then it all went away w/the hiatus. Liam said he wanted to tour MITAM because it’s his favorite album, he also joked about not knowing what a Hiatus is & said he was lost for several months when it started. Niall resisted the hiatus the most according to both him & liam. All very different from Harry who started recording and filming his first documentary almost immediately & is on record saying he suggested the hiatus in 2014. Also note how long it took OT3 to start to record music for a solo album vs how ready to go Harry was, signing his management contracts on the yacht what 2 weeks after 1Ds last live performance. It’s not just words, it’s also actions by all four of them that point to 3 resisting the hiatus and 1 all ready for it & suggesting it.
I would LOVE an interview of Harry, Liam, and Niall where they just talk about Louis. Just band stuff and what he's done and meant to them. And where Louis isn't there to joke or deflect like you know he would. But I would love to see Louis in like a different room having to listen to them gush about him and watch him be all blushy and embarrassed and emotional.
