They're people too

I think I’ve established many times that One Direction is the biggest boy band in the entire world. But just like any great musicians there’s always that group of people who will always talk bad about that band and bring them down. There could be millions of fans who love them and their music, but once they see one or a couple of bad comments they automatically assume they suck. From interviews, to post on twitter, you can tell they get really affected by these people. I mean why comment something negative like “gay” or “untalented”. They’re not self absorbed guys who perform for money. They love their job, their music, and that feeling of satisfaction knowing that 80,000 people know the lyrics to their songs. They’re human, with feelings that have eyes and ears.
Not just One Direction, but no one should be criticized for loving what they do. Just like everyone, they’re insecure not only about their music, but about themselves too. For example, member Liam Payne has been getting a lot of hate and getting called fat and ugly by people outside of the fandom. No one has the right to call anyone those awful words because people take it to heart even if they say they don’t care. Also, all the boys have been called gay but it has been in magazines and the internet that members Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles are gay.. This hate has been taken to another level, which made past member of One Direction, Zayn Malik left the band. Although, he said it was because of not wanting to be in the spotlight, it all started with rumors about him cheating on his fiancée, and being called horrible and a cheater. Words really do effect people, even One Direction.

Till next time,

  1. I completely agree with you, Bri. I've heard that when you become famous, you become the property of the public. People need to realize that they are just as sensitive as us.
