Today, prepubescent girls around the world (and some really, really obsessed college women) are in a state of shock. One Direction, the first relatively successful boy band since the Backstreet Boys and N*Sync says goodbye to a member. Zayn Malik, our real life Aladdin, the dreamboat with gravity defying hair, a bad boy who most likely flosses, has announced his decision to leave the group. Zayn and the boys shook the world with the decision on Facebook earlier today.
Zayn will be remembered by the four guys who are really, really hoping that they can keep the band going, because let’s face it, it all goes downhill once the hottest guy in the band leaves. Zayn’s departure is also mourned by gaggles of teenage girls hoping that his normal life as a twenty-something will lead him to their doorsteps. Zayn’s announcement was met with tears and anger from fans.

Zayn, it’s been a wonderful five years. We wish you the best of luck with your new life. Some will never get over this loss, and some had no idea who the fuck you are anyways, because they’re in their twenties and don’t listen to tween music. Either way, welcome to the world of being normal. It sucks..
