Third, the BBC finally, after a few weeks of turbulent times, decided to sack Jeremy Clarkson after he punched a producer for not getting him a steak. As many have said, he’s rich enough that it doesn’t matter but any other station would want him and will send out the offers. Top Gear itself will survive after all these years.
Will One D continue in its now altered state? Take That survived the exit of Robbie Williams, albeit for only a year. But when they reunited it was as a four piece and they were hugely successful until Jason wanted to leave again. Backstreet Boys were a foursome when they reunited as Kevin wasn’t interested.
Many bands suffer the loss of a member through leaving or death, many move on with the band, many break up. Are Directioners going to still love them as a foursome? I don’t see why not. There should be enough fans who still love the remaining four to stick with them regardless of the fact one has now left. If you stop loving a band simply because a member leaves then that says more about you than them.
