One Direction Took Their First Official Picture Without Zayn, and They’re Super Bummed About It

We knew this day was coming, but now that it’s here, we’re not sure we’re quite ready. As with any band that’s lost a member, new press photos are a necessary evil. And now, courtesy of One Direction’s management site, we have the group’s first official photo sans Zayn Malik. It’s okay if you have to ugly-cry — Liam and Niall look like they’re about to, too. Meanwhile, Harry’s chillin’, and Louis is all, “I give up.”
