Adele’s ‘Hello’ Flips People Out & Louis Tomlinson Girl Group Dreams

louis tomlinson girl band dream with simon cowell 2015 gossipEarlier in the year, boy band One Direction announced that they are planning to go on a hiatus in 2016.

Band member Louis Tomlinson explained the decision to Billboard saying, “Five years, five albums, four tours…I’m sure it appears alarming when we say we’re going on a break, but in reality, it’s such a normal thing. If you look at other bands and other artists they [go on breaks] all the time. It really isn’t as big and dramatic as it’s been made out, but our intention and our love is for the band, and that’s always going to be the case.”

Since their announcement, fans have been wondering what the musicians will be doing while on break. Recently, Louis sat down with Rochelle Hulmes and Melvin Odoom on the X Factor YouTube channel and revealed that he already has started up a new project with mentor Simon Cowell.

Louis explained, “I’ve got a little label imprint, so I’m trying to work with that at the moment. I’m lucky enough to be working with Simon. We’ve got a few different projects going on at the moment one of which is we’re trying to put a girl band together.”

He went on to say, “It’s really exciting to be involved in the different side of it, the background.”

Therefore, we will have to wait and see if Simon and Louis will have the same magic touch that they had with One Direction when it comes to creating an all-girl group.

adeles hello flips people out 2015 gossipWhile Adele’s new song “Hello” has been getting massive praise from fans and other artists, people are still managing to find things to pick apart when it comes to the music video. In the video, Adele is seen making phone calls on a flip phone, which has caused quite a stir on social media.

Adele Flip Phone, Tweets:

On Friday afternoon, the Canadian film director Xavier Dolan explained that he didn’t put too much thought into the flip phone. He went on to say, “when I heard the song I saw a story right away, just this idea of taking the phone and calling your past. [The video] is highly unoriginal. The lyrics are ‘Hello, it’s me’ then you see someone picking up a phone. I’m not good at imagining super-conceptual videos. I just thought it would be nice to have her walk around the house and make phone calls and end up in the forest, with maybe some flashbacks in it.”


He then addressed the flip phone controversy, saying, “I could see the GIFs [of the flip phone] on Twitter. I’m like ‘guys, get over it. It doesn’t matter.’ But the real explanation is that I never like filming modern phones or cars. They’re so implanted in our lives that when you see them in movies you’re reminded you’re in reality. If you see an iPhone or a Toyota in a movie, they’re anti-narrative; they take you out of the story. If I put an iPhone or a modern car in a movie it feels like I’m making a commercial.”

Nonetheless, even with a flip phone, Adele’s ‘Hello’ music video is breaking records – in the first 24 hours, the video was viewed over 25 million times. Thus, beating Taylor Swifts record with ‘Bad Blood’, where she got 20.1 million views in the first 24 hours.

Additionally, the 25 million views record fits pretty well with Adele’s comeback, considering her upcoming album is titled 25.
