Almost every boy goes through an astronaut phase growing up. I did after visiting the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. One Direction just got to live out every boy’s childhood fantasy. Like we needed another reason to hate them ;)

For their “Drag Me Down” music video, those lucky mofos got to experience real astronaut training at NASA including interacting with Robonaut, driving the Space Exploration Vehicle rover and using a Partial Gravity Simulator. Ugh, so jealous.

“Drag Me Down” is the lead single off their fifth studio album and first without Zayn. I will say, it’s the best track I’ve heard from them in a while. Check out the clip below. Liam looks especially hot in his scenes. Whether he’s all sweaty working out or smoldering while suited up in his astronaut gear, I could just eat him up.

Amy Schumer Hilariously Parodies One Direction

In: Donovan, Music

Amy Schumer delivers yet another hilarious home run. The 33-year-old comedienne takes aim at the now-quartet boyband, One Direction, with her brand new clip.

Schumer uses their single “What Makes You Beautiful” off their debut LP, Up All Night, as inspiration. The English boyband infamously sang to their fans that they “don’t need make-up to cover up.” It appears that only applies to a certain few. In Amy’s case, more is more. The boys change their tune once they see her sans cosmetics.

Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup” is a cornucopia of LOL pop culture references. There’s so many, I can’t pick which are my favorites. It starts slow but clicks into high gear during the second verse. Check out all the fun below.

The first official photo of One Direction since Zayn Malik’s departure has been unveiled. The group’s management team uploaded it on their official website today with the following new bio.

“One Direction are Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan. In just over five years together they have impressively sold more than 50 million records, have achieved a total of 91 number ones and performed to over 7.5 million fans worldwide.”

It’s like he never even existed ;) While I liked Zayn, I admit I’m sorta liking the dynamic of the boy band as a quartet. Question is, will they still sell a boatload of records and merchandise as a foursome?

What do you think of the photo? Can 1D survive without Malik? Sound off below.

Zayn Malik’s First Solo Track Leaks Online

In: Donovan, Music

When Zayn Malik announced his surprising departure from One Direction, a few assumed he needed some much needed rest and relaxation. It appears the 22-year-old wasn’t needing time out of the spotlight but rather have the spotlight shine solely on him. Apparently, he’s been working on solo material for some time now. Shady, shady, shady.

A demo of his collaboration with Naughty Boy leaked online Monday. “I Won’t Mind” is a slow-tempo jam with an acoustic vibe. It’s really hard to pass full judgement on an unfinished product, but I’m not feeling it.

In my opinion, I don’t think Malik will do well without his bandmates. If anyone from One Direction is the Justin Timberlake of the bunch, I’d put my money on either Liam or Harry. Give his solo work a listen below and weigh in afterward.

The worlds of many teenage girls as they knew it crumbled earlier this week when Zayn Malik announced his departure from One Direction. Devastated by the news, they took to social media to express their outrage and broken hearts.

Funny or Die decided to capitalize on the situation by enlisting Billy Zane for their latest spoof. For those youngins who don’t know who Billy is, he’s that bad guy from Titanic ;)

The 49-year-old actor mistakenly thinks all the tweets are directed towards him. “I just way to say to my adoring and mysteriously heartbroken fans, you light up my world like nobody else. You don’t know you’re beautiful, and that is what makes you beautiful.” He jokingly adds, “I don’t want to be nitpicky, but just for the sake of record, it’s Z-A-N-E, not Z-A-Y-N.”

Check out the amusing clip below which features Zane also reciting a few “My Heart Will Go On” lyrics.

Zayn Malik Officially Quits One Direction

In: Donovan, Music

If I was a betting man, I would’ve placed all my money on Zayn Malik being the first to leave One Direction. Even before he took a break from touring last week due to stress, I had a feeling he was the Ginger Spice of the group.

The announcement was made today via the band’s Facebook page. Those worried that this means this is the end of 1D, fear not. They will continue as a quartet much like Spice Girls did when Geri Halliwell left.

Question is, for how long? Sans Ginger, the Spice Girls only lasted for another album which performed mediocrely compared to their previous albums. Check out Zayn’s official statement below.

“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologize to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. 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. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.” – Zayn Malik

Did you retweet in 2013? If you did, chances are pretty high you shared one of Twitter’s top three retweets of the year. Two of them involve a celebrity death while the other is a birthday shout-out. Not surprisingly, one of the most popular on the micro-blogging site is Lea Michele’s thanks to her fans for their support in the wake of Cory Monteith’s death. Check out the other two below, along with Twitter’s year in review video.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

In: Donovan, Music

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.
