Are the boys of One Direction arguing over their musical future? Rumors have been swirling and it is starting to sound like the Jonas Brothers 2.0; fighting, musical differences…breakup?!
To set the record straight, band member Liam Payne took to his Twitter account to address to the misguided allegations that the boys were experiencing conflicts.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en data-scribe-reduced-action-queue="><p>Lots of articles saying we are clashing ... no ones clashing we are just having a bit of Family time after hitting the road for 3 years</p>— Liam Payne (@Real_Liam_Payne) <a href="https://twitter.com/Real_Liam_Payne/statuses/421050049770958848">January 8, 2014</a></blockquote>

It’s understandable that they would need a break, seeing how they have been working non-stop since finishing in third place on X Factor back in 2010.
According to E! Online
, these rumors originated from a story published by the Daily Star
that pegged Harry as a turncoat who was trying to take over the band, "He thinks their next album is the perfect time to create a much edgier and more rock 'n' roll image and he's already writing songs that he wants them to include on the record," the alleged source said. "The problem is the rest of the band fear if Harry starts changing their style he's going to take over the whole thing."
One Direction deserves their rest, peace and privacy as their latest album (Midnight Memories
) knocked out Emile Sande’s Our Version of Events
as the biggest-selling album in the UK, and that’s despite the fact it was released just five weeks before the end of 2013.
