One Direction fans are not handling the band's impending “break” well; many assume it's a front for an eternal hiatus.
Members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, however, want to assure devout Directioners there's nothing to melt down about.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tomlinson insisted 1D's separation would be temporary.
With a baby on the way and a record label of his own in the works, Tomlinson is in desperate need of spare time, but he plans to “do some writing” with Payne.
As long as this duo continues this creative partnership, 1D devotees will have music to look forward to during the dark ages of One Direction.
