Q: One Direction fandom, are you OK right now?
Yeah, we figured. Today was basically an emotional bomb that was dropped directly on your face.
First, One Direction announces their new album title. It's called Made in the AM and we will bypass any obvious jokes right now because we're focused on you guys at the moment. Then they announced the release date for their new (final?) album: Nov. 13.
And they released the album cover, which is bittersweet because the boys look beautiful but Zayn Malik is missing so…the pain is real.
And then just when you thought your heart couldn't take another 1D punch, they release a song called "Infinity" for all to hear. And it has lyrics like "How many nights does it take to count the stars? That's the time it would take to fix my heart" and basically Directioners are a puddle of feelings on the ground right now.
Interestingly enough, we found that the fandom fell into one of four categories when the band dropped all this knowledge on them:
Fans Who Are Just Straight Up Losing Their S--t
Fans Who Are in a Glass Case of Emotion Over a Post-Zayn Album Release:
Fans Who Are Just Really Pissed Off That 1D Did This While They Were in School
And Of Course, the Larry Shippers
Which camp are you in right now? Crying? Puking? Shipping Larry? All of the above?
