When it was announced that the One Direction boys had decided to take a break for a couple of years, the fans around the world were devastated and were keen to know just how long they were intending to split up for, hoping they would be back sooner rather than later. Well, it seems that it is not only the fans who think One Direction should get back together as soon as possible.
American rap star 50 Cent has been talking about the British boyband, claiming that he believes the One Direction break came at the wrong time for the boys. 50 Cent believes that they should have stayed together while they were still the biggest boyband on the planet and made sure to make as much money as they possibly could.
50 Cent explained, "I am coming at this with my business head on, but the One Direction guys took a break at the wrong time. My advice to them would be to reform as quickly as they can. They can reform in five or six years, but they are a phenomenon at the moment. They are never going to be as popular as they are now, this is the peak for them."
He added, "As an artist, I understand that they want to go off and try their own thing, but they got to understand that not many people who leave a boyband go on to be Justin Timberlake (former NSYNC member). But now is the time where they can add another 30, 40, 50 million dollars to their net worth. And it would be a mistake not to take advantage of that."
Since the One Direction break started, Liam Payne has signed a new solo record deal and is working on his new album, while Harry Styles is set to make his acting debut in the new Christopher Nolan movie Dunkirk. Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson has a young baby to take care of and is working on TV projects, and Niall Horan has focused mostly on charity work.
