Ed's really got some great insight into being in the music biz and even though he's not a boy band kinda guy, he has written songs for One Direction, so he has an inside scoop we're totally jelly of.
When asked recently about his thoughts on Zayn leaving, he said he totally gets it, telling Canada's The National Post: "Let's just say if you're unhappy it's best to go your separate ways."
That, in turn, sparked a follow up question about how the guys will carry on without Zayn and their future as a band, and he said, "Oh, they'll be fine."
Believe Ed, guys. Everything's going to be alright.
