narcissa malfoy : (26 March 2015 - 06:09 PM) just a reminder that there's only two days left in the bow up challenge so get your entries in!!
Schultz. : (26 March 2015 - 05:57 PM) righttt omg where the frig did march go???
kate. : (26 March 2015 - 05:09 PM) ALSO, I really need to finish my UC entry. What even happened to March
kate. : (26 March 2015 - 05:09 PM) It seems to be working okay with me :(
Mak Hugson : (26 March 2015 - 03:07 PM) is imgor/photobucket/tinypic working for anyone bc i cant get it to work for any of my images :(
klutzy_kara : (26 March 2015 - 03:06 PM) I don't think they'd have left him have 2 months off tbh their management is a disaster
amoretti. : (26 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) to me it just seems like zayn is having a tantrum and throwing his toys out of the pram. he should've taken the 2 months sick and then reevaluated, he's made a rash decision.
klutzy_kara : (26 March 2015 - 02:51 PM) This whole thing probs could have been avoided if they were all given more breaks. Zayn didn't seem to WANT to leave. He rly seems to love music and the boys, never mentioned quitting, but he's just overworked and gets too much hate and things :'(
narcissa malfoy : (26 March 2015 - 01:37 PM) i hope they last, but i don't want them pushing themselves too hard, you know? like the rest of them need to take care of themselves too, and i'm just so proud of zayn even though i weep
klutzy_kara : (26 March 2015 - 12:48 PM) I don't think they will last very long as a four person. Probably will just finish up their last tour and album :( sadd daysss. Zayn's voice was brill too
chernabog ri... : (26 March 2015 - 12:36 PM) hopefully it isn't the spice girls all over again (not into 1d, but my inner five year old still feels geri leaving ok so i feel everyone who is)
arbitrarywriter : (26 March 2015 - 12:35 PM) I feel like once one member leaves, the band's shelf life gets a lot shorter- I wonder how long 1D will last...bit sad though that the only multiracial member left
Glow : (26 March 2015 - 11:53 AM) It's always weird when someone leaves a band. I guess it'll be interesting to see what 1D will do as a foursome. But if Zayn needs to take care of himself then he shouldn't say (not a 1D fan...just adding my 2 cents)
Darcy Lewis : (26 March 2015 - 11:02 AM) Same for me! I don't really listen to their music very often but I liked them. I feel sad for all the fans and who knows how all the members are feeling. :( :cry:
cleopatra. : (26 March 2015 - 10:30 AM) aw, i feel so terrible for all the one direction fans! a friend of mine is a huge fan and she was pretty upset today so i know how you all feel *hugs all of you*
