Sounds like the boys from One Direction are going their separate ways, or multiple directions. If these rumors hold up and the tabloids weren't in fact just having an out the ordinary slow day in need of some controversy, then we're looking at the end of a successful six-year career that all began in 2010 on a UK segment of 'The X Factor.'


This boy band was the first band in history to have all four of their first albums make a collective splash on the Billboard 200. Plus their body of work considered in its entirety is certified platinum by the RIAA, except for 'Made In The A.M..'


US Weekly states that Liam Payne's aiming to make a move to get into production, while Harry Styles will attempt a career in acting, and Louis Tomlinson's going to give the whole being a father thing a run for its money.


Here's to what was a fruitful career, and whatever's up ahead for these dominant pop stars.

What do you expect? The young man's already a hunk and a half of a chiseled Spaniard pop star with gushy vocals that pretty much epitomize bottled up lust.

Coupled with his not so vaguely sexually expressive tour title: 'Love and Sex' Tour, undergarments were bound to fly.

Now we have the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena shaking his head and barking that the women organizers in attendance at the show should be "whipped with toxic stingray tails", referring to an ancient form of punishment.

Sirisena described the women that attended the Iglesias concert as reportedly removing, then chucking their bras and panties up on stage. Sirisena went on to say this is the "most uncivilized behavior that goes against our culture." Apparently stingray lashes were administered on criminals in Sri Lanka. Like, nope.
