One Direction are branching out from their own band--and collaborating with other people? Hold. The. Phone. Does this mean 1D will be heading for a breakup, as has been rumored a bajillion times before?

These guys are solid, so don't expect a split any time soon, but do expect to hear their words on someone else's lips. Well--their lyrics...being sung by other bands. Confused?

Turns out the One Direction guys are expanding their songwriting efforts, not only for their own group, but also for 5 Seconds of Summer, as Calum Hood of 5SOS told Daily Star: "We found our common ground was Busted, so there's a few pop rock ideas kicking around already. We'd love to make it happen."

Liam Payne is reportedly planning to pen something for Neon Jungle as well, as Amira McCarthy teased: "Liam Payne knew who we were and said he was listening to our song in the car. He said that he'd really like to write for us, so we're waiting for the song."

Meanwhile, Kodaline tweeted yesterday that Harry Styles was writing a song with them...and he's rumored to have written a tune for Alex & Sierra too. Niall Horan tweeted today: "Got some really cool writing sessions coming up ! With some of my favourite writers! Looking forward to it."

So, what's up with all the writing side jobs? Just keeping things fresh, we suppose.
