This Is Not the Right Direction
Remember the days of One Direction? Our first true boy band since the genre’s heyday in the ‘90s? It felt like a resurgence was happening. Now, a new generation had their own NSYNC. Backstreet Boys. 98 Degrees. Boyz 2 Men. New Kids on the Block. We could go all day.
Apparently, Zayn Malik released a statement saying he was leaving the band. According to this Twitter user, most of Gen Z was in school when the news broke. So, how do you deal when a beloved member of your favorite boy band parts ways? You take to social media, of course. Hearts were broken that day. But those hearts have since mended. We think.
