One Direction to Break Up After Two More Albums, Simon Cowell Says
Simon Cowell recently gave an optimistic prediction that One Direction are set to call it quits after two more albums, one of which is already in the works.

The "X Factor" judge, who has the pop sensation signed to his Syco label, told the Daily Mail that break-up is inevitable for the young five-piece.

"Bands don't stay together forever," he said (via Digital Spy). "I think they will make at least two more albums together and they are in the middle of one right now."

Prompted to comment on whether Harry Styles' solo career might be the main cause behind such a stance, Simon replied, "No, I don't think that is going to happen for a while. Eventually I am sure they all will."

One Direction are currently busy working on 2013's "Midnight Memories" follow-up, which grabbed the flashy title of the best-selling album last year. Some of songwriters they opted to hire in the process include Pharrell Williams, Naughty Boy, Kodaline and The 1975.
