Liam Payne announced yesterday that he had signed a solo contract with Capitol records, which left the fandom questioning whether One Direction would ever be returning to their incredibly glorious roots as a band.
#1Disoverparty quickly trended up Twitter, some fans worked themselves up into a bit of a rage about whether this REALLY does mark the end of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne working on music together, but one person who was talking 100 per cent sense was his sister Ruth.
Taking to Twitter to reply to a fan and voice how proud she was (side note: it might make you feel a little gooey inside) of her younger brother, Ruth wrote: "So happy for liam,im biased but hes so talented it would have been a shame for him not to release music for 2 years!
"I cannot wait to be playing liams music in my car #soexcited."
Replying to a fan who asked: "he's still staying in One Direction though right ?? [sic]", Ruth responded: " yh, im not sure how a solo career in the band 'hiatus' would affect membership ha"
Still, she makes some valid points, doesn't she? First off, that we all DESERVE Paynis's voice in our lives during the next two years (true), second that Simon Cowell said the hiatus would be two years, and thirdly that she's so excited to hear his solo stuff when she's in her car. Same, babes.
So, your thoughts? Are you excited for One Direction's solo stuff or pretty gutted about the whole thing? Discuss with us on our Twitter @Sugarscape.
