“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologize to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.”
You want to have a normal life? What TV did you sign up for? The one where you compete to be known by millions? That’s cool. take your money and run. It’s not normal for twenty two years olds to have the cash that you have, but if you want to be “normal”, so be it.
