One Direction Didn’t Just Win 8 Teen Choice Awards, They Also Won The Breakup
In what will probably be remembered as the most anticipated Teen Choice Awards ceremony in history, One Direction fans from all over the world tuned in to see what would happen when the boys were pitted against Zayn Malik for the first time. The award in question? In a literal sense, the highly esteemed “Choice Male Hottie” award. In a figurative sense, the break up. Obviously with stakes such as those, the world waited with bated breath.
As you’re probably well-aware, this hasn’t been the smoothest year for One Direction because Zayn Malik AKA the one boy in the band you could confidently describe as hot, pulled a Justin Timberlake and decided to go solo. Directioners were inconsolable, but One Direction got along just fine, dropping a stunningly mediocre EDM-laced single and even going so far as to say their Zayn-less concerts were some of the best they’d ever had. Ouch. Even when you’re the one who dumps your ex, the last thing you want to hear is that he’s doing better than ever.
Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, the Teen Choice Awards took pity on our poor, unfortunate souls and revealed to us that One Direction had won not one, but eight surfboards. It was official. One Direction had won the breakup.
Ever the class act, One Direction accepted their eight awards with grace, humility, and not one trace of enthusiasm. After all, they may have won the breakup, but they were still the ones who got dumped.
Watch them accept their awards below, and shed a tear for what was and will never be again.
