7. Zayn Malik leaves One Direction
In March One Direction member Zaun Malik announced that he was leaving the band, this caused many fans to freak out Malik claimed “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.”
Devastated fans reacted by screaming, crying, and having their moms pick them up from school. Though the band said it planned to continue as a foursome, Twitter raged for days, lamenting the loss of Zayn and his signature high notes. Seven months later, fans were still commenting on that original Facebook announcement, begging Zayn to come back in several different languages.
