Only one earth-shattering story here:

Zayn Malik quits One Direction; others carry on as normal
Simon Cowell, who discovered the boyband on talent show The X Factor, said: "I would like to say thank you to Zayn for everything he has done for One Direction.

"Since I first met Zayn in 2010, I have grown very, very fond - and immensely proud - of him. I have seen him grow in confidence and I am truly sorry to see him leave.

"As for One Direction, fans can rest assured that Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis are hugely excited about the future of the band."
I must say my life will go on as normal Razz

One Direction were one of the few good boy bands of the modern era. All the same, was reading a news article yesterday showing how a teen girl-fan slit her wrists over this catastrophic news. (Sarcasm, yes). Sad situation, though as you said, life will go on. Just a true shame that anyone would try to take their life over such a petty thing. In a decade, will anyone even remember One Direction? There will be many more boy bands / eye candy included ... perhaps not talent lol. Haven't kept up with this much, though can they simply not replace ZM with a fresh new face? Glad it easn't 'The Wanted'.

I thought Harry Styles was the one being set up to leave triumphantly and go solo. Malik had been badgered by the media for weeks about drugs and girls. It's not as though One Direction speak to people because of musical integrity and skill - boy-bands seldom do.

One thing that sustained Take That! was that Gary Barlow was pretty talented, and Mark Owen could put his shoulder to the wheel from time to time as well.

Follow-up (!) One Direction news, as they've announced plans to take a 12-month sabbatical from each other so they can do solo stuff.

But it doesn't start until next March Mad because they've got a new album out in the next 6 months to promote and make money from.

The days when you released an album as an artistic statement of the songs you'd written, rather than an item on a balance sheet, are clearly long gone.

One Direction Beats Beatles' Record With Fifth Top 10 Debut on Hot 100.

'Perfect' enters at No. 10, marking 1D's fifth top 10 start, the most among groups, besting the Beatles' four.

With its latest Billboard Hot 100 debut, One Direction bests the group's British boy band ancestors the Beatles.

As previously reported, One Direction roars onto the Hot 100 (dated Nov. 7) at No. 10 with new single "Perfect." Fueling its start, it begins at No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart with 136,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen Music, and No. 18 on Streaming Songs (6.9 million U.S. streams), following the arrival of its official video Oct. 20.

"Perfect" is 1D's fifth top 10 debut on the Hot 100, and second from its Nov. 13 album Made in the A.M.; "Drag Me Down" debuted and peaked at No. 3 upon its arrival on the Aug. 22. With five, One Direction breaks the record for the most top 10 Hot 100 debuts among groups, passing the Beatles' four. Counting all artists, Taylor Swift has tallied a record 12 top 10 debuts, dating to the Hot 100's 1958 inception.

Before "Perfect" and "Drag" (the latter of which tied the Beatles' mark), One Direction debuted at No. 3 on the Hot 100 with "Live While We're Young" (No. 3, Oct. 20, 2012), "Best Song Ever" (No. 2, Aug. 10, 2013) and "Story of My Life" (No. 6, Nov. 16, 2013).

The Beatles launched three of their fab four top 10 Hot 100 debuts in their original historic heyday, and one as a reunited trio (featuring the late John Lennon's vocals) more than a quarter-century later: "Hey Jude" (No. 10, Sept. 14, 1968), "Get Back," with Billy Preston (No. 10, May 10, 1969), "Let It Be" (No. 6, March 21, 1970) and "Free as a Bird" (No. 10, Dec. 30, 1995).

Notably, until the adoption of Nielsen Music data in the '90s, which made top 10 Hot 100 debuts more regular (although still fully laudable), the Beatles boasted the only such arrivals, with "Hey Jude," "Get Back" and "Let It Be."

1D also launches a second Hot 100 debut this week. Further down the chart, "Home" -- a stand-alone track not on the new album -- enters at No. 97.

It says less about 1D matching/besting an achievement set by one of the biggest bands in music history, and more about what a flimsily small tally it takes, and yet it has somehow proved impossible to so many other bands/groups. What is it, 60 years? 70 years? And yet '5' is the record? Question Rolling Eyes

Harry Styles accused of plagiarising 70's band on Ever Since New York <----- Article.

Styles, 23, came under fire from fans of Badfinger who have accused the singer of using a similar guitar riff to the one on the British rock band’s 1971 track Baby Blue.

Comparisons were soon drawn after Styles performed the track live for the first time on Saturday Night Live.

One viewer said the comparison was “unbelievable” while another accused the former One Direction singer of being unable to write his own music.

One tweeted: “F*** Harry Styles. Ripoff artist. That riff is NOTE FOR NOTE lifted from Baby Blue by Badfinger. Unbelievable.”

Another posted: “I'm far too upset about Harry Styles stealing the Baby Blue riff. This feels so personal. Is he going to ripoff some 10cc or T-Rex next?”

Mad Today's acts can't catch a break! If this were still an era where everything sounded unique I could see it. Today, literally everything is a clone of something else. If I were a musician, I'd stay as far away from the music industry an humanly possible.

One Direction: Up All Night Live
From their tour earlier this year, with backstage comment mixed mainly with a live gig from Bournemouth. They've proven a surprisingly huge hit worldwide, especially since they didn't actually win The X Factor in the UK. Anyway, nice lads, nice songs.

Harry Styles at the BBC
The former One Direction star is plugging his solo album, and got an hour of prime time BBC with R1 DJ Nick grimshaw firing the questions and featuring in skits involving calling the bingo in an old folks' home and then going to the chippy. Inbetween times, he sang songs from the album, and covered Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain", which was bold, and also uninspiring.

They're apparently in "secret" talks about some sort of reunion to mark their 10th anniversary. Kids, eh?
