Well, as a former directioner, I’m very much intrigued with how all members are handling this hiatus. Emphasis on all – like including their band members. Former One Direction’s drummer, Josh Devine, has joined forces with Sean Murray and Hayden Maringer forming the band, Evaride.
Where do I even begin? My name is Kasey Coble, and I am a full-on #Directioner. What I am not, however, is a Directioner who still supports you in your solo endeavors. Don’t get me wrong – I am on board for the solo careers of Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis in whatever it may be: singing, acting, reality TV judging, etc. The difference is that they went about pursuing solo activities the right way and YOU did not.
As we all know One Direction has been on hiatus since early 2016, which is why I was so confused when I first heard Niall Horan’s solo track “This Town”. I was like, wait did One Direction put out another song or..?
Six years of One Direction and all I have to show for it is… OK, a lot. To be a fan of One Direction, you have to be pretty dedicated, and the dedication turns into a whole lot of time, effort and money toward what some people call a “silly boy band.” But, us #Directioners know that’s far from the truth.
I can be a little bit of a music snob. My music criticism journey began early. When I was in elementary school *NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys were all the rage, and I was fully against them. I wanted to listen to The Beatles and The Beach Boys. I actually threw a tantrum in the car on the way to a field trip when the poor mother driving tried to put on some Top 40 radio station. I still feel bad about that.
Harry Styles is a dreamboat, that’s a fact, he dresses like a young Mick Jagger and his hair is perfection. We all fawn over Harry, but a lot o this style looks amazing on ladies too. His outfits are pretty versatile, and he uses a lot of the same pieces. Good for him. Keep being a babe Harry.
We’ve all heard of the band One Direction. Their instant fame is all thanks to the brilliant mind of Simon Cowell, who decided to group the solo artists into the 5-boy wonder they would be known as worldwide.
