It is a lovely Saturday morning, Candy Girls, and like you, we're trying to just chill and read through our feeds as usual to check if we're missing something. And missing something we were because not one, not two, but three very important One Direction-related things just hit our feeds. Make sure you read these things carefully and cuddle your feelings because they'll surely be out of control after.

 1  Did Zayn Malik really reply to a fan's DM on Twitter?

We're still trying to move on from the announcement a few weeks ago that Zayn left the group. So when this Vine video of a fan sending him a DM asking him to come back surfaced, we can't even deal. Is this for real? We'd really love to hear from One Direction ATM regarding this Vine video before we form our conclusions.

 2  The hashtag #1DIsFinallyFreeFromModest trended today.

The rumors reportedly started when Louis Tomlinson removed Modest! Management from his Twitter bio. Then fans reported that the company also removed the band from their list of artists on the website which led for it to crash for a few minutes after a lot of us wanted to check it. Later, Modest's website went online again and we saw for ourselves that One Direction is still one of their artists. The management company hasn't released a statement yet, but Now Magazine reported that 1D's publicist told them the rumors are false.

ICYDK (and we doubt that you don't), some fans are blaming Modest for Zayn's exit and accused them of overworking the boys.

 3  Ed Sheeran weighs in on Zayn Malik's One Direction exit.

1D's friend and occasional songwriter (listen to "Little Things" and "18") Ed talked about Zayn's exit when he appeared on an Australian radio show. "Fair play to him, let him be happy," he said. "But also being a normal 22-year-old's pretty boring… All I'm saying is, being a normal 22-year-old probably isn't as fun as being in One Direction. Just saying."

Just last month, Ed also appeared on another Australian radio show and said a few things about Zayn's departure, too. "I think whatever makes him happy. The most important thing in life is to be happy, and if he was unhappy in that situation then yeah, don't stay in it," he said. "You don't want to make yourself unhappy just to earn money. That's not what life's about. You're meant to enjoy life, and if he wasn't enjoying his life then fair play to him."

We have to say, Ed has some wise words right there.
