Harry Styles’ Sign of the Times: Unexpected but impressive

I’m not usually one to do a music review but I think Harry Styles‘ debut single Sign of the Times warrants discussion! It was released today after weeks of hype so I really feared it was going to be crap. He faced a lot of expectation and while he hasn’t received resounding praise, he won me over. Let me explain why.

Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s new video proves my raunchier image theory

When Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik surprise released their sexy duet I Don’t Wanna Live Forever in December, I said this had marked a change for her and predicted this would be the start of a sexier phase – and judging by the video, I was right.

Does Fifty Shades Darker song mark an image change for Taylor Swift?

Today Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik blew our minds by dropping a surprise duet I Don’t Wanna Live Forever. So far, so unexpected. What shocked me further was that it’s for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack! WHAAAAAT?! WTF?! This makes no sense to me in terms of Taylor’s ‘brand’ so I believe it that it can only mean one thing – she is overhauling her image.

Yesterday I went down to Wembley Stadium to catch all the music stars performing at the Capital FM Summertime Ball and it was a lot of fun, except that the big, big acts like Zayn Malik, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas didn’t do press so I didn’t get to see them. Sad times.

Zayn Malik perfectly distances himself from 1D with Pillowtalk

Unless you have been living under a rock today, it will not have escaped you that Zayn Malik released the video for his debut single Pillowtalk. Whether you think it’s good or not, I think we can all agree that he has well and truly established himself away from the One Direction mould.

One Direction fans the world over are having a breakdown right now cos it’s been reported the guys are taking a year’s break in 2016 once their fifth album comes out in March. This is a GOOD thing. Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam have been working non-stop for five years and they need this break.

Can Zayn Malik sustain a solo career?

zayn

So last night, Zayn Malik announced the not-so-shocking news that he is launching a solo career with RCA Records. A label switch from One Direction‘s Syco Music had been long-rumoured and demos had been released but now it’s official, I can’t help but wonder, does he have what it takes to be a successful solo star?

What is Naughty Boy’s problem?!

From Naughty Boy’s Instagram

 

British producer Naughty Boy needs to stop butting into One Direction‘s issues. Seriously – who does he think he is?! Okay, it wasn’t great to see Louis Tomlinson fighting with his old bandmate Zayn Malik on Twitter recently but then Naughty Boy weighs in and begins arguing with Louis and I’m like, ‘Excuse me, who are you? Why are you always sticking up for Zayn?’ He’s like Zayn’s little social media bodyguard.

Zayn Malik leaving One Direction: Why am I not surprised?

Zayn Malik’s decision to quit One Direction shocked me today, purely because I never thought he would go through with it. Him wanting to leave is no surprise – it has been pretty clear for a while now – I’m just amazed that the 1D camp let him go. The fandom must be in serious mourning.

The signs have been there for a long time now, from leaving the tour due to stress and missing that Orlando gig in November. I always felt like his heart wasn’t it like Niall, Louis, Harry and Liam and you could feel his reluctance, shyness and lack of enthusiasm in pictures and interviews. He always seemed to be having the least fun. Even back in The X Factor bootcamp stage, he refused to learn a dance routine (which is why I’m shocked he was put in the boyband in the first place) and didn’t seem to have the same drive.
