It’s looking more and more like One Direction’s so-called hiatus may be more of a permanent split, especially given Louis Tomlinson’s recent offhand comment made on the UK’s X Factor, where he’s serving as a mentor.
One of the young contestants was in a boy band that never took off before being selected to compete on the X Factor and he is struggling with his identity as a solo artist.
Louis empathized, "I get it," he told him. "I used to be in a band. You want to move on from it."
That quick statement seems to reinforce what 1D fans fear, that any chance of the group reuniting in any meaningful way may be slipping away.
Thankfully they all remain busy with their solo careers. In fact Louis’ full length debut is expected in the coming months.
