Are One Direction having trouble agreeing about musical direction?
Last time we heard of that happening, the band broke up (*cough* Jonas Brothers).
One Direction breakup rumors are cyclical, however--and they're back again, with buzz that Harry Styles has a differing opinion about the music than Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan.
According to a recent report, there's some conflict brewing among the 1D members, with Harry looking to take the music in a more rock direction, abandoning their pop music roots.
A source tells The Daily Star, "Harry loves being in the band and respects and loves his bandmates. But he's very ambitious and thinks they should be growing up more and becoming more credible."
The insider added, "Their third album Midnight Memories was already a lot less pop but Harry wants to push it further."
While it's true that Midnight Memories has strayed a bit from their previous pop endeavors, the source added that Harry "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."
Hang on...it gets juicier, as the source explains that "the rest of the band fear if Harry starts changing their style he's going to take over the whole thing."
The other members reportedly are worried about "changing a winning formula."
And then there's this: the source claims that "the fear is that if Harry doesn't get his way he could end up walking out and going solo. He doesn't want to be five years down the line and still doing boyish pop tunes."
What do you think of this latest report? Do you think 1D plan to break up any time soon?
