Rose Reacts: JLS Splits Up!

Wednesday 24 April 2013

It's no secret that I am a MASSIVE fangirl, in particular when it comes to boybands. When I split from my Ex, fangirling filled the void that he left in my life, and I fell in love with JLS and The Wanted. I mean I liked JLS when I was with my ex, but I became a crazy fangirl. Thankfully I got over that after a few months, but still I really love JLS. There music is severely cheesey, and I am aware that a lot of people hate it, but I don't.

So today they broke the news that they are splitting after a brilliant 5 years. I actually found out from my sister who Whatsapp'ed me as soon as she found out. I promptly fled to the internet to check if it was true, and I was shocked to see it was. Although these boys haven't had any number 1's in a while they are no where close to be 'Over' as they all seem to believe they are. They have a TONNE of fans who would buy any music that they release, even if it wasn't great. I understand that they've all got things going on, Marvin in particular. What with a child on the way, but they could have just taken a break for a while, they don't need to split up. They are making one final album, and are going to be doing one more tour before finally splitting.

If anything I am not upset about the news, I am angry with them. My sister pointed out to me that Oritse Williams seems to have moved on already, and checking his Twitter confirmed that he is already trying to promote himself:
I want to grab them all and shake them severely. Have they learned nothing from past boyband splits? Solo careers never work out for ex-boyband members (With the exception of the god that is Robbie Williams). Whats even worse is that I can already see them reuniting 5/10 years down the line when they've exhausted every avenue of attempting to get their solo careers off of the ground. At which point I believe that the lyrics from their debut single, 'Beat Again' will become very ironic, 'Let's just get back together, we should have never broke up'. Obviously I'll be happy to see them back, but I'm just angry that this decision seems to come so out of the blue. 

Don't even get me started on what is going on with The Wanted right now...

Anyway my point was, I'll be sad to see them go. I wish them all the best of luck (even though I doubt any of them will get anywhere), and I will certainly be monitoring this situation closely! Let me know in the comments what you think!

  1. The other three might desperatley forge solo careers, but it's okay, because JB has his deer farm! He was even on countryfile, I can't believe that. I want to be a deer farmer now! So random :')

    1. lol what is the point in deleting comments... if you're prepared to put your silly opinions onto the internet you should be prepared for people to either disagree or point out when you are wrong....

    2. If you want to 'tell me I am wrong' you can do it un-anonymously! I am fully prepared for people to disagree with my views, but what I will not stand for is someone deliberately trolling my blog just because they have nothing better to do with their life. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it.
