Simon Cowell Suggests Hiatus for “One Direction”

Fans of the hit pop boy band, One Direction, felt their entire world crumbling apart after news reports of member Zayn Malik leaving the group in March of this year hit social media, the Internet, and the presses. Since then, the group’s future has been wildly speculated upon, especially as several very personal issues have come up for at least one member of the band. Recently, The Sun spoke with music mogul Simon Cowell, who not only opened up regarding the recent passing of his mother, but also opened up about what he believes the boys should do in the near future. Read on to learn more about what Simon Cowell had to say about the popular band’s future. Read on.

One Direction, who formed thanks to suggestions from the likes of Cowell, after being grouped together to compete in a season of the “X Factor” had gone on to achieve great success internationally, and currently has a huge following worldwide.


However, as the group had recently suffered the loss of Malik, who left in March 2015, there has been rampant speculation regarding the band’s future in the long run.

Recently, The Sun managed to sit down with Cowell. He had been instrumental in the formation of the boy band, and whose record label manages the band, and talked with him regarding the future of One Direction.

According to the interview with The Sun, Cowell suggested that the boys should take a well-deserved break after their upcoming album is launched. He stressed that the boys do have enough singles and hits to be able to “take some time off” and “do other stuff they want to do.”

This simply means that Cowell is suggesting a hiatus for the boys in order to rest, and to be able to enjoy life a little. However, he does hope that if they decide to do this, that they would reunite and continue going on as One Direction.
