In Other One Direction News This Week…


Aside from former One Direction member Zayn Malik releasing his debut solo single Pillowtalk, with its accompanying music video that dropped today, and One Direction releasing their farewell music video, History, what has the rest of the British boy-band been up to this week? We’ll tell you.

As One Direction begins their journey toward indefinite hiatus, Harry Styles braces himself – by getting a new agent. The long-haired band member just dropped his management team that’s associated with One Direction, Modest Management, in favour of top American agent, Jeffrey Azoff. Apparently, he’s preparing to launch his solo career soon and this is the first move. Reportedly, the rest of 1D is staying with Modest Management. Look at Harry go!

Niall Horan

Niall Horan has been very hush-hush for the past week. His last Tweet was sent out on January 18, a week-and-a-half-ago, and his last Instagram post was one week ago, which was a tribute to the Eagles’ late Glenn Frey. Perhaps he’s gone incognito? He did allegedly dye his signature blonde hair brown earlier this month (from what we can see in these photos), so maybe he’s trying to hide from those freaked-out fangirls:

Maybe this week, while he’s been spending all his time offline, he’s been back to the salon because the blonde is apparently back:

There haven’t really been new photos of Horan from this week up to this point, so perhaps the blonde-Tweet was just a fan’s wishful thinking. Will we ever know what colour Niall Horan’s currently rocking?

Liam Payne and J.Lo announced their future musical collaboration this week. According to The Sun, Jennifer Lopez hired the Payne to write some songs for her and the two met up in Los Angeles to discuss this. The Sun also reports that he’s so serious about his song writing career that he’s set up a company for it called “Hampton Music Limited.”

He also got a new tattoo and posted about it on Instagram:

Louis Tomlinson became a father! He shared the first public photo of his new baby (and first child), Freddie Tomlinson, on January 27 (seen above). How cute is Freddie? Tomlinson shared Freddie’s nickname on Twitter as well:

At less than a month old, Freddie already has his own website domain name! was registered shortly after the precious first photo was posting online, thanks to Tomlinson’s baby-mama, Briana Jungwirth and her family. Crazed fans have already been making social media accounts associated with baby Tomlinson and his name, with some even claiming to know the family.

He’s not even a week old and he already has a fan base.
