Given how much they invested in the "he's such a real artist narrative" it really is a shock this made it through. It's hard to see this as anything other than Bhusker throwing shade, as he clearly knows the image Harry is trying to present, and this pisses all over it.

R2 But then he goes on to say "The way it came out, everyone's saying, “Oh it’s David Bowie, it’s like ’70s classic rock.” But it was more about him wanting to have that cool band. I thought, he can sing his ass off; he’s a phenomenal performer. If this is what he wants to do, this’ll be really, really special."
Laid the crap on kind of thick. It's just a very odd interview. As I mentioned before, I feel bad for Harry.

What the fuck are you talking about? He was the lead singer for 1d and sang all the choruses and a lot of the verses. Their albums were written to showcase HIS voice, especially the last one. He didn't need demos because he has five albums worth of songs where he was the lead vocal. He also had songs he'd written alone, like the one he wrote for Ariana Grande, Just a Little Bit of Your Heart.
He played the White Stripes to give an idea of where he might want his sound to go but his album ended up sounding nothing like the White Stripes.

The troll is mostly likely a shill. He has been around for years and is likely part of a SM team, with his talking points posts filled with facts no one cares about.
I Googled Harry Styles dog and there are a lot of pics of Harry with the Asian guy and/or the dogs belonging to the Asian guy. Wonder where all of that will lead, guess we will see.
If Z is posting that he is looking forward to performing again, maybe that will be teed up sooner rather than later. Maybe short festival slots or small clubs would be a good idea. His performances after Pillow Talk was released went fine, such a shame that he pulled the plug. Even addicts who think they need to use to perform and deal with life on the road can turn it around. The road and mech is where all the money is these days. Hopefully he has gone to rehab and has learned a few coping skills.

All the 1d stans stream manically on as many devices as possible. Louis' new single is out on March 7th and his fans have already worked out how many streams his single needs to break into the Spotify Top 10 in the UK. Something like 210k.
Zayn is not about to tour, ever. RCA won't fund it. If he had proved he could manage a prerecorded performance for a TV show to promote his 2018 singles, it might have been different. But there is zero evidence that quailing Zayn can stand on a stage and sing. He last did this nearly three years ago.

He has had a few songs out, and the tv gig, plus all the personal stuff, so good on him. The songs were pleasant enough and it kept him in the game a bit.

My impression was that Lottie and her boyfriend really stepped up re: the toddlers when the mom was dying and just after. Now she seems to be living abroad?

The little twins live with their father and his new partner and the 14 yr olds with Jay's parents. They are already Instagram influencers with 600k followers each. Very concerning as self destructive behaviour patterns run in families and even Louis has written a song about drug taking, although he seems steady now.

The father of the four older sisters, Keith Tomlinson, needs to be stricter with the 14 year olds Phoebe and Daisy as they're already posing in scanty outfits and doing sponsored posts. He doesn't seem very effectual. I think the younger twins will be fine. They are being brought up out of the public eye by the doctor dad.

How can he be stricter if they do not even live with him?
When Fiz apologized for a gap in her insta, wonder if she had been in some type of rehab or in patient program, or perhaps was depressed?
What kind of career do influencers have as they age? It seems bizarre. The photos Lottie posts look like soft core porn. esp with the deliberate lez vibe.

Dan Wootton should do an exclusive: Inside the Dark World of the Instagram Influencers. Fizzy clearly had an eating disorder and was using probably cocaine to keep her weight down s that she looked cute and skinny and would get more sponsored posts. She might even have taken that deadly fat burning drug Clembutanyl (or similar spelling) which has killed plenty of people who wanted to lose weight quickly.

Fiz wanted out of the chaos and asked to go to boarding school. It can be hard in such a big family with multiple divorces for kids to get enough stability and nurturing. Sad and way too short life.

The Spazz troll always goes on about his Twitter blog and I am pretty sure the name was part of his talking point posts on earlier threads. That is where I knew it from, at least.
I am sure that Sony, who just spent/wasted a fortune on MJ music rights, hopes to make more $ on HS 2.0. Or maybe Rob just wanted to chat about where he got pretty pink manicure? I think your sense it was a PR thing posing as a fan post was probably on point.
No desire to hear Harry croak another note but I do hope RCA can get Z out on the road.

The whole fandom does know who Rob Stringer the Sony CEO is and recognise him from the many pictures online. It's great that he considers Harry Styles important enough to have lunch with him in London, on their own in a famous Elizabethan Highgate pub called The Flask. Larries are angry because Rob is 'responsible for closeting Louis' and those mentally ill hoes think Harry should steer clear of him.
RCA signed spazzy Zayn up four years ago this July, so will no doubt be working out how to extricate themselves, given that he did ONE listening party as promo for his last album, which only sold a few thousand copies. He's also been promising to tour for a year now but nothing has materialised, not even a prerecorded TV show appearance.

We'll see when the Sunday Times Rich List is published in early May. He made £8m a year in 1d, so it was definitely the right decision to ditch the losers from 1d and go solo.

On a long ago thread, someone posted that Harry was becoming odd and eccentric like Michael Jackson. It was when he was newly under the sway of the Azoff clan. I thought it seemed dramatic, but I can totally see it now. Hopefully without the pervy aspect. He just does not seem like other young guys, he pretty much hangs around with old dudes, old enough to be his dad.

R229 I'm not so sure that he has lost his looks or just doesn't try anymore. Doesn't give a damn. I'm sure his wonderful management told he him he needs to be a serious artist and he is playing the part the best he can. And the result of that is looking like Bob Dylan (now).
And his induction speech was a bit cringe worthy.
" Whenever you hear her voice, life gets a little bit better. When she sings, the world is hers, and it is yours. She is everything you’ve ever wanted in a lady, in a lover, in a friend,” Styles said. "

Stevie wants it known that at 70 she is still a sexual being. Maybe she was tapped Styles, who knows. He has taken care of his looks. He's managed to eradicate all the spots he had when he was younger and the shadows and eye bags that plagued him as a teen. His skin looks flawless, eyes clear and a great colour. His hair is glossy, thick and well cut so what has he 'let go'?

R250, he already was an artist who'd fronted the most successful boyband of all time for 5 years. We've seen the other 4 guys try and fail to sustain a solo career. Harry is the only one with longevity who is respected in the industry.

[R253] Just like [R254] said - his management made it seem like he is this genius artist who was being held back by 1D and Simon Cowell and is on his own now doing his thing. Cut to bhasker's interview and you realize - he is still as manufactured as he was, the only thing that changed is marketing strategy. Also artists tend to have their own demos to show their ideas and the direction they want to take. Harry probably wanted to sound like the white stripes or bowie but had no idea how to go about it and it was ultimately all handed to him. Does anyone else feel like Jeff Bhasker was not supposed to say these things? Why did he? He made money anyway right.

If Z can do at least a few festivals he may turn things around. He is seen as cool by same age peers and those in the music industry.

Niall had 200k unsold tickets and was playing to venues which were at 28% and 33% capacity in the US. Harry sold out his entire US leg, despite playing 20k arenas. He sold out MSG, the LA Forum and the O2 Arena in London for two nights each and grossed $62m. His tour was also simple in terms of the set and he broke merch records in 50 venues, so his profits will be astronomical.
Harry gets three times as many likes on his tweets than Niall does and Niall's Twitter engagement has gone down by a third since Flicker was released, so NH2 won't sell as well.
Niall has also failed to garner critical acclaim. His album only had five reviews which qualified for Metacritic and two of those were 2* reviews. Harry has over 20 reviews there and received dozens of rave reviews of his tour, whilst the few journos who wrote about Niall said he sounded bland and derivative.
Niall and Harry have fandoms of young women who originally stanned because they found these guys attractive. Excessive alcohol and junk food (which he freely admits to) have altered Niall's appearance beyond recognition, and a lot of his fans who bought Flicker in 2017 have moved and now stan the handsome 20 yr old Shawn Mendes.

[R285] While I would love to think people are not that shallow,you are probably right about the stanning Shawn mendes point.Shawn has taken over a large part of 1D fandom. He is younger and has a lot of industry push atm. His high profile friendships help too.
What really gets me though is there are people -far more talented than any of these guys- who don't get half the attention. They could use some stanning.

[R285] The venues Niall played were cheap to book. In smaller venues with medium production budget you need to fill a third to break even, in concerts like gaga and Taylor 's about 60-70% to break even. So he didnt play at a loss in US and he did really well in europe. Also he is doing better than what was expected of him.
Harry was treated like the STAR of 1D while niall was the underdog. For him to do as well as he is doing is a great thing. This is what makes me root for him even more.
Harry is underperforming. Seriously. He should be doing a lot better than Shawn considering the push he has always had but he isn't.

Shawn's music is pure pop so sells much better. He's had some really good singles. Harry is refusing to make chart friendly records in his bid to be taken seriously but HS1 still sold 1.7m and he had no trouble selling out big places. Niall's 20k amphitheatres will have been costly to book; he should have stuck to venues of under 10k capacity.
Harry's looks haven't altered much so he still has all the 1d fangirls whereas Niall has aged differently and looks heavier and older, much fatter in the face.
BTS is another band which has taken a lot of 1d's fans. The Korean boys have no problem maintaining a skinny build.

Re: his appearing to lose $, does anyone know how many of his tickets sold at full value? The fees for the Azzoffs alone must be steep, Jeff was literally his 24/7 minder for YEARS. All the pr for the album was not cheap, was that all Sony or did he kick in? Do they still have to pay off Cowell?
Still trying to suss out what he has done to his face. Could he have had a lift at the hairline that impacted his brows? Why would he get fillers at his age? He just looks different, without a significant weight change. His nose looks longer but that was probably just finishing growing.

Harry hasn't 'lost $', delusional R290. You seem to be living in an alternative universe where junkie Zayn and dough boy Niall are making more money than Harry.
The majority of Harry's tickets sold at full price. Some were resold more cheaply, as with most concerts. Jeff Azoff will take the usual 10%. Cowell's contract with the band ended in 2015 so why the fuck would H still be paying him? Your Larrie really is showing, making comments like that.
Harry's personal wealth increased by £10m last year to £50m, without the massive arena tour factored in, so this year it will probably increase by over £20m, considering the tour grossed $62m. Niall's tour was supposed to make similar numbers but ppl failed to turn out and he only grossed $20m, most of which will go on costs.
As for Zayn, he seems to be in retirement. The sales and streams for IF are very disappointing. He is worth $35m and has barely made any money since 2016. Let's hope he invests wisely. RCA will probably drop him in July when his contract is up.

The fashion press have always been obsessed with Harry and Zayn, so the articles about his RRHOF appearance are no surprise.
I know Niall was signed by a top model agency - any recent campaigns? He has striking big blue eyes and a cute face.
I hope Harry goes in a more 80s/indie direction for his soph album. The MOR 70s rock stuff was deadly dull. Sign of the Times I liked but Carolina and Only Angel were incredibly old fashioned and irritating with the girls' voices harmonizing and all the whoops and yells. His 2018 coming out song Medicine is a step in the right direction.
Matty Healey of the 1975 offered to produce some tracks for HS2 but Harry turned them down in favor of Jeff Bhasker yet again, a big mistake. The 1975 actually sound like 2019 with some captivating, catchy songs and so much critical acclaim, whereas Harry's album drones on like the actual year 1975.

Harry's hairline has been the same since 2013. For Dunkirk, they filled it in with fake oil to make him look younger. He is pictured with fans every few days and never has the telltale forehead scabs, so it's clear no operation has taken place.

Shawn Mendes is known in the 1d fandom as Shadow Mendes for copying Harry. He made an obnoxious video saying he was straight a couple of years ago, whereas Harry said he was bi in the song Medicine.

[R301] Zayn is going to be a part of 27 club if he doesn't get help! A lot of people actually think it's all anxiety. They don't suspect drugs at all. Typical fraus!
I didn't. I watched some American interviews of the cast and fionn looked like he was so over it because Harry would take an hour to answer a simple question with 100s of ums and ehs inbetween. He was quite slow, i thought he would be used to interviews but no. H also didn't seem to interact with Tom or anybody else.
Shawn mendes made a video?! What? I had no idea. But calling him a copycat for waving pride flag is ridiculous :D

Yes, maybe Shawn protests too much and is actually now bi. He was 18 when he made the video.
I agree that Zayn unfortunately does seem an increasingly likely candidate for the 27 Club. His fan fraus naively think he only smokes weed, but even that can cause psychosis and he is probably on every drug going.

I hope Louis' vocal stamina has improved since the last (and only) time he played a short set at Key 103, when he was out of breath after two songs and his band sang louder than he did.
Niall was begging for an invite to the Met Gala on Instagram today, tagging his modelling agency boss in the hope of snagging a ticket. I doubt Harry wants any of his old bandmates there, making the UK headlines all about a 1d reunion.

[R306] Niall might as well go,it will increase his profile in the US. That is what parties like met gala are for.
Louis is doing himself no favours by 40 a day. Adele used to smoke furiously too and actually had to give it up because her vocal range decreased by many notes. She is back to normal(ish) now. He needs to give up smoking,hire a vocal coach and get some good songwriters and producers with him in the studio. He has enough money to pay them to work with him.
Btw is there a thread about adele's upcoming music ? She is releasing this year.

Striking that all but Niall look older than they are. Other 3 have real widows peaks, although generally look better when hair and clothes not done by "team." After album promo, done, hopefully Harry can have some fun and stop the slide toward Michael Jacksonish image. Louis needs to clear up babygate one way or another.

[R311] Niall is good looking but fashion brands these days hire celebrities - the kind who generate headlines like cara,Kendall,Harry etc - which lets be honest niall doesn't. Nobody cares about unique look anymore. It's not the age of paulina porizkova !!
Now who is the person who thinks Harry styles doesn't look generic? All the 1D boys - even though they are all good looking - SCREAM GENERIC except Zayn.
Why do some people compare how much money they make? They are all filthy rich! I have noticed when they broke up Harry fans were poised for him to be the next big thing like bieber or ed. Then he underperformed severely and now they compare him to other 1D boys - whom they dismissed earlier - to make themselves feel good. You know what Harry did okay,some people just had big expectations. Get over it.

Harry's recent tweet about SOTT has received 470k likes already, EIGHT times as many as Niall's announcement of his Flicker Orchestral album, which only got 65k. Niall also had over 200k unsold tickets for the US leg of his tour and was ridiculed by reviewers for being yawn inducing and derivative. Harry sold all his US tickets because he is so popular there.

Needs better music as well. For album two, he's working with the same people he worked with on album one, so not promising on the music front. He walks around looking smelly and homeless. It's like he's not fully invested in his career, and just doing music because it's a lucrative. It doesn't seem like music is his passion, and it shows.

Louis should really think of other things in case his solo career doesn't work out. I want him to do Well but 40 a day, release of some very forgettable music and bad attitude has held his career back and will likely do. I also think his army of siblings are too dependent on him now that his mom passed away - for money and support and thats gonna drain anybody!

I dunno about Liam and Zedd. Do not think it is gonna happen given how his set is going. If he does bring him out, would be hard not to do better than Katy who was a bit of a dud. What has happened to her career?!

[R390] No. Just no. Its one thing to splash around in water and do a barely passable job,its another thing to do a walking talking less splashing role and do good by it!
In all honesty he might be campaigning for that part hence the hair. Some people ship him with timothee and this role could get him a lot of publicity. Hell even the speculation is getting him publicity and I wouldn't put it past him that his team is putting out these rumours and he is actually not even in the neighbourhood of being considered.
Bottom line is he CAN'T ACT. I think we expect very little acting from popstars when they dabble into it and praise them for below avg performances in movies. A seasonal actor would always do a better job than them except Jared leto and Barbra Streisand :D

Remember when there were reports that "Leonardo DiCaprio had invited Harry styles to his home to discuss scripts with him " ? Yeah!! That happened. His team is incredibly delusional.

Feyd is a small part so Harry might be able to carry it off. His acting was praised in Dunkirk. Critics were primed to drag him, but it didn't happen.
The cast is already filming Dune and all roles except Feyd have been announced. If he is Feyd, they are probably intentionally keeping it quiet because they don't want the paps photographing the set, as they did a LOT during the Dunkirk filming, just to post pics of Harry.
Harry cut his hair very short last week and he has colored it.

Limelight loving Liam is hilarious. I saw on Twit that he has posed for 32 sets of HQs just this year, 2019. He can't resist a red carpet. He found two at Coachella, despite not performing.
Zedd and Balvin now understand that he isn't cool and so decided not to bring him on stage. I think he will struggle to find other collab partners from now on.
Touring and merch is where the big money is, as Harry knows.

[R404] Every time he appeared on screen in Dunkirk he took me out of the movie so I would rather not watch him in anything else. As far as critics are concerned GQ and variety are always fawning over him for everything, so I wouldn't trust them blindly.
I am genuinely excited for this movie so I have my fingers crossed.
[R405] I thought it was weird he didn't go up with them. He needs to seize these opportunities.

My guess is that Liam was not asked to guest with them at Coachella, not that he was and turned it down. I do not think it will have anything to do with collabs in the future, past collabs have done welll. I do not thing J. Balvin brought on anyone and Zedd had lined up Katy. Think they are on the same label?
Katy was not great. You can re-wind the live stream on Youtube from yesterday, pull it to the left.
Her career seemed to tank with the bleached, super short Pink type hair, she should grow it back out. She talked about coming to Coachella for 17 years which did not help in making her seem young and relevant. He is not a great dancer, either. I have a soft spot for her too and do not think this helped her. Ari kind of took her young kid audience.
|by Anonymous||reply 408||04/15/2019|
The Zedd/Katy collab has been out less than 2 months so having her was to give it a push. The collabs Liam did with both were a while ago in the sales cycle. No diss to Liam, it is a business.
People do not just jump up on stage at these festivals. We are not talking The Dead in 1975, these shows are super high tech and timed in length and with effects. The set times are very tight and the headliners have to finish at a certain point due to zoning. It is not some free form jam kinda thing.

The few performances he did for the first album went fine. The all female band was a cool schtick. Wish he could have kept it at that level.
Gigi was at Coachella. Too bad he did not go with her. Just being there and interacting with peers in the industry is a good thing, Liam was hustling.
Agree that if it is for a film that would be a boost. Does he even have a manager at this point? If Scooter can manage Biebs, surely he could cope with Z? I get why the first one dumped him right after Peep died, esp with the murky backstory about people from the mgt co and drugs. If she had another young client OD, yadda, yadda.
He does look good, and that VOICE. Watching Blood Orange on the live stream I thought of Z. He could still have a solid career. Beta blockers, whatever gets him on the stage regularly until he is back in the groove a bit.

Z said he'd never spoken to a professional about his anxiety, but he has probably self medicated with benzos like Xanax, Valium, Ativan. These actually cause rebound anxiety which is worse than the original experience, which could be happening to Zayn. Copious weed consumption has the same effect. But it's good to see him looking handsome with longer hair, esp as Hoerry has cut his short, possibly for a film role.

Thought Z was said to be bipolar, as so many creative people are. Some of his drug use may be self medicating for that and other mental health issues. Travel exacerbates it but he coped, albeit poorly, in 1D. He clearly has anxiety too, but that is a big thing now, look at the career of Lil Peep. These millennials revel in oversharing about their various disorders and he seems to have no British reticence about his own.
He has no real incentive to tour or do live performances, given his wealth. Agree that smoking pot and selfies seem to be his preferred way to spend his time, with the occasional new tat.
Thought that latest round of PR had him and Gigi split? Who can keep up? Those PR cycles are the underpining of his career, what a waste.

As for Zayn 'still having' his voice - well, we have no clue what he sounds like live anymore, sans production or autotune. His last live performance was with 1d in four years ago. Maybe he really did waste all his 'good years'.
It remains to be seen what RCA make of all this. Zayn's contract is most likely up in July. They funded his expensive, movie style videos complete with top actors and famous models, yet got pretty shabby returns in terms of sales.

Record labels look at how many albums AND singles an artist sells. Ever since albums sales declined significantly, the album/singles metric is the most important number to them.
Harry's label was not pleased that Harry decided to release an album with no radio-friendly singles. That's lost revenue for them. Album artists, like Harry, Lorde and Frank Ocean are not as lucrative to labels as artists who can sell both albums and singles.

Unless the music gets a LOT better and he becomes more popular more broadly, he may have trouble hitting that 5. The 1st album had the most carryover of the huge 1D audience and had a novelty factor. Both of those things will attenuate.

R501 A manager being around his client doesn't make him a famewhore, in my opinion. Also, Harry and Jeff are best friends. But anyway, we're all entitled to our opinons.
You guys ready to see Ezra Miller outdo Harry with his MET Gala outfit? It's On May 6th, so it isn't long now.

Jeff has been Harry's best friend since 2013 but he wasn't by his side on any of the red carpets and certainly won't be posing on the Met Gala red carpet with him. Harry will most likely turn up on his own or with Gucci's creative director, Alessandro Michele.
Harry makes plenty of money for Columbia. His tour broke merch records at 50 venues and they get their share of that too.
I don't know what will happen to Louis' career. His March single performed very badly.

Actually managers are always around their clients but they are never in the frame. I can't even tell the names of the managers of my favourite artists. He might actually be his best friend for all I care but tell me which other manager did you see sitting next to their client at a BBC special?
I am ROOTING for Ezra! I don't even care about anybody else' outfit at this point.
He won't obviously walk the red carpet as only the people with invitations are allowed to.
I figured Louis' fans would atleast get this single on the charts especially right after his sister died. I was wrong.

The relationship has always had a big element of building the brand of Azoff jr. R506. You are right, managers are usually out of the shot, not all over Insta and joined at the hip. Although that seems to have changed of late?
Harry has not had the breakout of the 1D lane that many, including here, expected. Album 2 is kinda his last shot. His current niche is lucrative, but people will eventually age out, no? Bhasker has some pretty strong credits, not sure how it all ended up so meh?

[R508] Bhasker is quite brilliant. I think SOTT could have been a great song had someone else had written it entirely without Harry's input(whatever it was). Remember when Bhasker worked with fun? Nate Ruess is an amazing songwriter and his song writing perfectly complemented Bhasker's production.
The way the album turned out made me believe Harry actually did have input.lol.

Lol, R509, you may well be correct. We Are Young is a banger.
His credits include working on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Run This Town and Uptown Funk.
Jeff Bhasker (also known as Billy Kraven and U.G.L.Y.) is an American record producer, songwriter, keyboardist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. He collaborated with rapper and producer Kanye West on the albums 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Watch the Throne. He has won Grammy Awards for the songs "Run This Town" by Jay-Z, "All of the Lights" by Kanye West, "We Are Young" by Fun., and "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson. Bhasker received the 2016 Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for co-producing Mark Ronson's album Uptown Special and producing Nate Ruess's album Grand Romantic among other records.

Seven years here trying to make yourself sound young by using millennial type words such as 'welp' and 'eh', and you still can't spell 'Azoff'.
Jeff's girlfriend has been with him since 2010, so no billing of time. I'm shocked that you haven't labelled her a beard or said Jeff is closeted. Maybe you read the room and realised that nobody here is buying your 'everyone is gay and closeted' trash.

Harry remains laser focused on music with the occasional high profile foray into fashion. He isn't an instahoe like Liam or Niall and the industry takes him a lot more seriously than they do the others.

R528 Yeah, he needs better, catchier songs. He is not a good songwriter, so he needs to hire some good ones, and ditch the ones he used on his first album. It would have been so easy to make him into a great pop star, but him and his team seriosly fucked it up.
Harry's fans love to brag about his high tour sales, and while he did great on that front, the tickets were bought mostly by screaming 1D fangirls who yell so loud and don't even listen to the music. He needs songs that are gonna attract the general public. He is not indie and has no indie or rock cred, so he needs to stop pretending and embrace pop.

Almost all of Harry's songs were written by the same 6 people, Bhasker included. He needs to mix it up a bit. I certainly hope his next album will have new writers thrown in.
After he left One Direction he said he had 9 journals of song lyrics. There must be something in there that they could put a catchy tune to and make a hit. If not, that's sad.

R531 Yes, he always struggled to sing Sign Of The Times. He had one time where he nailed it (Graham Norton Show), but that was an effort for him. I don't know why he'd make his first single (or any single) a song that he can't sing live. His voice could sound great on a song, but sadly him and people around him don't know how to play to his strengths vocally. He has a nice, pleasant voice, but SOTT was all wrong for him.

I'd like Harry to.go more rock/indie. Ditch the annoying female backing singers and sing within his range. A song like Youngblood by 5SOS (one of the best selling of 2018) would have done wonders for him. He is still so young but some of his stage outfits were quite aging.
Matty Healey from The 1975 offered to produce HS2 but Harry again went with Bhasker, who seems to have an urban background.

R540, it's hilarious the way the little 1d fans say that Liam and Louis wrote the 1d hits, when in reality it was Savan Kotecha, Julian Bunetta, Jamie Scott, John Ryan and Ruth Anne Cunningham, with the boys getting vanity credits.
Liam went the way of collabs and his label don't seem to want an album or a tour for him. Louis' last two singles failed to chart on the Hot100 or the UK 40 so I don't know where he'll go next.
Agree that a more rock sound would suit Harry. His current music is too folky and dated, with some embarrassing lyrics like 'she's a devil in between the sheets". Yes, lose the girl backing singers and the Pink Floyd guitar too. The suits need to go. Tight trousers and fancy sleeveless tops are the way forward. No fusty suit jackets.
