I like how everyone in the world just assumes that the One Direction fandom is a bunch of teenage girls crying out for Harry Styles’ penis, but in actuality it’s convoluted and divey and pretty much some mafia style type of shit.
After seeing Louis in the club in Chicago on Friday, I have 100% no doubt in my mind that the Louis Tomlinson we see on stage/in press/on fan service is a completely different off the clock/non-working Louis. I haven’t seen him that carefree, and with his guard (mostly) down since probably 2012.

I think that Minerva McGonagall was fully aware that the marauders were trying to become animagi and she may or may not have carefully placed some useful reference books, some of which may or may not have been her own personal copies, in the library where she knew they would find them.
Well if this is true, then it seems clear that Modest is screwing up. Even if heavy promo isn’t necessary at this time, they certainly shouldn’t be getting 1D put on radio blacklists.
"Have you been fucked over by your management?" Seems to me pretty clear this is a result of behind the scenes tension.
Yeah…I just don’t GET it. They’re a BUSINESS, and they are making poor business decisions because of personal tension? That’s ridiculous and unprofessional. I’ve never seen a for-profit company act like this before.
A question other people have raised.
But there is also a long history of companies exploding because of poor business decisions. I’d rather pay attention to the evidence in front of my eyes than discard it in favor of a premise that is in fact questionable.
I’m also not sure why people are assuming this necessarily ISN’T a business decision.
If, for example, Modest knows that 1D will definitely leave them quite soon, and Modest has already made most of the money they’re possibly going to make from 1D, of course it would be in their business interests to devalue the One Direction brand. It makes things harder for whichever of their competitors step into their shoes, and levels the playing field even slightly for their own remaining clients — say, for example, a young pop-punk band from down under that Modest has been pushing awfully hard in 1D’s place for quite some time.
I partially agree with this, however, I am still of the belief that Modest! is doing just enough to not get sued by One Direction for negligence, and One Direction is doing just enough, for example continued fan service sans Harry, to not get sued by Modest!. Also, how can we be sure that the radio play issues are not coming from Sony, instead of Modest!? If we are to believe they are two separate entities, they have just as much blame to carry.
I just heard SOML on my local radio station this morning. It had no lead in, nor any commentary after, the only thing noteworthy was how it is a radio edited version which cuts Louis’ solo (which I am incredibly angry over!). The funny thing is, I haven’t heard You and I in quite sometime, but Amnesia is getting a lot of radio play.
A business relationship is ending AND there is bad blood? Sounds believable to me.
does anybody else clean their phone screen by wiping it on their boob or is that just me
