Are you taking a break? - 29/10/2014

On 29 October 2014, all 5 did an interivew for in demand

Seeing as how we:

  1. Now know there’s a break and it’s been in the works for a while
  2. Suspect Zayn’s departure was not a short-term decision, but a long-term plan stretching back at least to the beginning of November 2014

This video is particularly fascinating. 

Interviewer: I’m just thinking that after this [’Four’], there’s going to be a bit of a break? Not a huge The Wanted kind of break…kind of a break. What can you say to 1D fans to kind of reassure them, what’s goin’ on and kind of where you guys are at the moment?

Zayn: [begins talking as Louis begins to respond]

Zayn: We haven’t really got any sort of break in mind at the minute, so…

Harry: [stares at Zayn, then at Louis, then tries to make eye contact with Liam]

Right as Zayn says “any sort of break in mind” Harry purses his lips:

Louis: [looks like he is listening carefully to Zayn’s lies]

Harry: [turns back to the host looking like he’s wondering if Louis forgot to froward the calendar item about the meeting regarding the break to Zayn]


Niall: [Niall-s alone in the corner of the couch pushing all emotions deep down inside]

Niall: [thinks to himself “I was promised a motherfucking break fuck y’all.”]

Louis: [begins to try and fix what Zayn said] Right, because we wanna take-

Liam: [In true Liam fashion, he begins to shout about going on a “group holiday” to the Bahamas, which may be the origin of the ongoing “lad’s holiday” message point we’re receiving currently.] 

Harry: [continues to stare into the interviewer’s soul and wonders what he knows and why he would ask such a quesiton]

Zayn: [perhaps realizing he’s upset Louis, touches his arm] I was just saying to him [Louis], we just want to get this [album] out, and see what they think of this.”

Louis: [doesn’t even look at Zayn]

Harry: [stares]

Louis: [finally finishes his thought] And we potentially might take a little bit more time on this record [’Made in the A.M.”], so that’s why they might think we’re going on a break. We just want to take a little bit more time.” 

13 November 2015: Release of “Made in the A.M.,” 369 days after the release of “Four.”

My Thoughts:

  • I think Louis, especially, was frustrated with Zayn deciding to speak on any upcoming group break, as it was probably settled Zayn was leaving after the first leg of the On the Road Again Tour. So not only was he getting a permanent break, he decided to speak about the other boys not planning on taking a break, because they had tour dates planned through the following October 31st. 
  • I think Louis and the rest of the group are prepared to lie about things if they have to when asked directly (girlfriends, babies, etc.), but try hard not to blatantly lie and tap dance around statements and questions in such a way as to not later cause heartburn for the group and the fans. Zayn, however, didn’t give Louis that opportunity here, and wasn’t going to be around when a group break was announced to deal with it. 
  • I think, in light of Louis’ comments about the fifth album here, that it’s possible they weren’t planning on releasing their fifth album quite so quickly after Zayn left, and things/plans changed for whatever reason. This can be supported by many confusing events of the last 6 months.

I really think he got super defensive because a lot of people are just calling him names and saying he is homophobic and not telling him why what he said was wrong. But I’m glad he apologized, but let me reiterate that Liam said something ignorant, but that does not make him homophobic.

Happy Birthday Harry Shum Jr. (April 28, 1982)

“Every project I work on makes me feel like I am on the right track because I’m getting paid doing what I love to do. I view each film and show I get to work on as a small dent in the universe that hopefully makes some sort of impact to someone somewhere. So I guess in a way, whatever current project I’m working on reminds me that I am on the right track.”
