But for real, though. Are you surprised?
After what seemed to be a strong statement of unity after Camila Cabello announced her departure from Fifth Harmony, the remaining members are taking a break.
Probably, because their male counterparts, One Direction, did the exact same thing (along with basically every group ever) in 2015 after Zayn Malik left the group. The saying, “They don’t make them how they used to”, certainly applies here. These were two groups where every person started with dreams of solo stardom.
Normani is the most recent to jump ship and give her solo run a shot. At the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy brunch, she got a few words of advice Queen Beyoncé herself.
Of course, she too started with a group and is now one of the most powerful people on the planet. If a pep talk from Beyoncé doesn’t light a fire under your ass, then I'm not sure if anything will.
It’ll be fun to watch this pop version of the Hunger Games and see whose careers make it out alive.
May the odds be ever in their favor.
