It’s official: One Direction member Zayn Malik is leaving One Direction.

After being spotted at a U.K. club allegedly flirting with a woman who was not Perrie Edwards, his fiancee, the outrage and intense speculation began. While Malik originally planned rejoin the group in South Africa after a short stint away from their tour, the band released a statement today shedding light on their plans to go forth without him:

“After five incredible years Zayn Malik has decided to leave One Direction. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year.”

Ridiculous

Paul F. Tompkins is many things, not limited to being a “true gentleman,” a terrific standup and the originator of brilliant and terrifying portrayals of Andrew Lloyd Webber and the Cake Boss. His true genius, though, has always shone best in podcast form. He announced on Twitter this past Thursday that he’ll be hosting a new improvised podcast called Spontaneanation with musical accompaniment from pianist and collaborator Eban Schletter next month.

Comedian Hannibal Buress may best be known to some as the comedian who ignited the Bill Cosby firestorm, but he’s also a hilarious standup and television star, lending his talent to two of the funniest, most progressive comedies on television, Broad City and The Eric Andre Show.

He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin last night to discuss two things: first, that he’s been receiving death threats from Bill Cosby supporters, and second, that he managed to become a rockstar overnight. More

News

Nantucket native Meghan Trainor received equal amounts of praise and flack for her enormous debut single “All About that Bass,” a song whose intent was to encourage body positivity.
