That’s where you stop your train, that brings me back again Down home where I’ll remain, where my honey lamb am. I will be right there with bells, when that old conductor yells, “All aboard! All aboard! All aboard for Alabam’”
That’s generally why industry bigwigs (aka Irving and Co.) are very anti-Billboard right now. It used to be considered the Bible of the Industry, the pinnacle of the trade mags, and now it’s turning into a music-oriented tabloid
So why was Billboard all up 1D’s ass this summer? Well, there was a lot of 1D news. Especially of the tabloid gossip variety, which if you read article #1 up there, you’ll see that’s direction they’re going in.
Why did it change? 1. Because their summer social media intern, who ran their Tumblr and was 1DAF , went back to school. I’m not even kidding. Their Tumblr crossposting is a fraction of what it was this summer. 2. Because one of their Pop Editors (Jason Lipshutz) left for FuseTV. He talked about 1D all the time, and was/is generally excellent to us as fans.
