As each day passes, One Direction is nearing their inevitable hiatus in 2016. Even their mentor, Simon Cowell has spoken now about their break and revealed other important things about them. Why is the music producer not so sure regarding their comeback?
In a report from Mirror, Cowell assessed the group’s massive success in the span of five years. He admits that the price of their popularity and milestones has worn out the boys. Their hiatus is much needed to give them more time for themselves and enjoy more things that life offers.
“The way I look at it with One Direction is that we’ve had five fantastic years and they’re totally exhausted. They need time out, but they will all be fine and if they want to come back, they will. If not, they’re all going to be OK.” Cowell said.
Cowell also shared how close he is with the group noting that what they have been more than professional work. He treated them like his own sons. One Direction has the choice of working with another label after their contract with him expired, but they decided to stay with him.
“I’ve got a proper relationship with them, not just business. They actually came out of their contract with me two years ago. They got offers for way more money from other record companies. Everyone jumped in. They could have really turned the screw on me if they’d wanted to, but they didn’t waver for a second, they stuck with me because we have a relationship.” Cowell said.
The former “X Factor” judge is also aware of Zayn Malik’s impending departure from One Direction before the news broke out. According to Daily Mail, Louis Tomlinson has broken his silence about the issue and revealed why their former member bid goodbye to the group.
“His taste in music was a bit different, and I guess that’s kind of what drove him to do what he did in the end, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Everyone’s come out fine from it, thanks to our beautiful fans. And he’s doing what he loves as well, so both parties are winners at the end of a disaster of a situation. It’s all good.” the 1D member emphasized
Will One Direction return after their hiatus? Hopefully yes and maybe Simon Cowell is still there at their side to continue his guidance for the boys.
