Is a solo career in Niall Horan's near future? While One Direction breakup rumors have swirled many times before, Niall is confirming that he'll be the first to leave the band to pursue his own sound, namely rap. Christian rap.
If all of this sounds completely random and crazy, we have good news: it's not true. It just looks like the guys have found a clever way to handle those breakup and solo career rumors – have a laugh about it. Who can argue with that?
In a new interview with Fox's Rosanna Scotto, the guys were asked if touring is "getting old" since they've been at it so long. When she asked "Are you exhausted?," Harry answered, "I feel fantastic," while Niall joked, "The only thing that's tiring me out is going to the gym." He added, "Touring is the best part and we get to see the world...I don't think it gets old. We have a good laugh."
The interviewer also asked, "I know you're called One Direction but are any of you thinking of going in different directions?" Zayn gave a nod Niall's way and he was quick to pick up the answer, saying, "I'm doing a rap Christmas album. Me and Drake...and Snoop Dogg."
Of course Harry had something to add, explaining, "It's Christian rap."
You know what? We'd pay good money to hear Niall's Christian Christmas rap songs. Get on it, Nialler.
