And Thats A Wrap- Emblem3 Decide To Call It Quits.

Wesley and Keaton Stromberg have decided to go their separate ways and are putting their band Emblem3 on hold. They announced the news on Twitter with a long and heartfelt message to fans, explaining that they are each working on new and exciting musical projects.

Their note said:

Hey Emblems!

Long time no talk. Apologies for being so quiet lately but wanted to let you know what we’re up to.

Emblem3 will always be a HUGE part of our life and we can’t thank you all enough for the love and support you’ve given us since the beginning. We learned so much, and as the years have passed we’ve realized that we both have so many creative ambitions. So, a new chapter is beginning…

I, Wes, have been pouring my heart and soul into writing and creating a new sound! I’ll be starting several new projects! Creation is LIMITLESS!

It’s Keaton again, and I have been working on a new band project as well! …but we’re continuing to write and produce together. Emblem3 is NOT over. We are, after all, Forever Together 😉 But for the time being, we will be exploring some new creative ventures and hope you’ll come along for the ride.

We will be posting updates constantly on the E3 and our personal social media accounts, so look out for them. We don’t want to reveal any surprises just yet, but just know that the future is extremely bright!

Love you forever and always, Keaton Stromberg Wesley Stromberg

I can’t believe that the guys decided to follow in Drew Chadwick‘s footsteps and leave the band! While their announcement is definitely disappointing, we are glad that they’re not leaving the spotlight forever. In fact, Wesley has joined forces with Kenny Holland and they’ve been performing together on the DigiTour.

Meanwhile, Keaton has been working on his own music and shared a snippet on Twitter.

Im heartbroken. Emblem3 was such a strong and talented band. Its a shame to see that we’ll we seeing less of this band performing together.

Here is my fav E3 songs.

Lets cry together.

Liam Payne is loving singing Zayn Malik’s parts on One Direction tour

Liam Payne isn’t missing Zayn Malik too much it seems, as he’s getting to sing his parts on the One Direction tour.

When asked about Zayn, Liam commented on how they were coping without him on stage.

‘Obviously he’s got a great voice,’the boybander said, ‘But his parts are fun to sing. I like doing all the high bits’.

The band also denied rumours that they are taking a break or in fact breaking up following Zayn Malik’s departure.

‘I don’t know where that has come from. We’ve got loads of stuff going on, we’ve just finished a new one [album]. It’s the start of the process, the recording a new album,’ said Liam Payne.

‘There’s the tour going on. There are some great songs [on the album], we won’t be going anywhere.’

And sorry X Factor fans, Louis Tomlinson isn’t returning to the show as a judge.

The One Direction star said at the Capital FM Summertime Ball on Saturday that he is just far too busy.

‘I’ve got a tour to do, so unfortunately not. No,’ Louis said.

Fans have commented about the set list at their recent concerts, and the band – including Harry Styles and Niall Horan – were clear about why they are holding back new material.

‘We’ve just been rehearsing the new songs that are going to come in. We wanna give it some time. We want to get it right. Get it right emotionally and it all arrives somewhere.’

#Sophiam- A Timeline.

Fandoms are all about ship names- whether imaginary or real. And the One Direction Fandom is no exception to this. From #Hessa (Harry and Tessa from the erotic fanfiction AFTER) to #Rosarry (Rose and Harry from the wattpad sensation Hidden) and now #Sophiam!

For all of you out there who happen to live under the  rocks. Sophiam is a ship name dedicated to Liam Payne Of One Direction and his gorgeous, stunning girlfriend Sophia Smith.

Sophia is a student at Birmingham City University, where she studies fashion design. She has an older sister named Zoe.

Sophia is the girlfriend of One Direction’s Liam Payne. The two met in secondary school, St. Peter’s Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England. They saw each other again in February 2013, when they both attended Andy Samuels birthday party. In August 2013, Liam flew Sophia out to L.A. during the Take Me Home US leg of the tour. He confirmed they were dating during an interview at the This Is Us press conference. They made their first public appearance at the This Is Us London premiere.

In April of 2014, rumors circled that Payne and Smith had parted ways. However, it was never confirmed. In May 2014, the two were spotted shopping in Birmingham, confirming the two were still very much together. Since then, Sophia has attended many of Liam’s shows during the Where We Are Tour.

  • She attended the This Is Us London Premiere.

  • They attended Louis Tomlinson’s mum’s wedding.

  • Liam challenged her to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

  • Sophia accompanied Liam on tour during the U.S leg of the Where we are tour.

 

  • They attended the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

  • Sophia spent her 21st birthday with Liam in Australia.

  • Liam was holding Sophia’s hand in the Night Changes music video.

  • The Great Gatsby Ball (for Trekstock) was planned by Sophia and some of her fellow Uni students. The event was hosted by Liam, who is an ambassador for the Charity.

Liam confirmed the song Illusion from their fourth album FOUR, is about his relationship with Sophia.

Sophia happens to the first girlfriend from the One Direction GF squad, who has managed to keep her personal life under the wraps. Her Twitter and Instagram account are both locked and only a few lucky fans who she decided to follow have the honor to goo through her pictures and tweets.

Here are are a few few sophiam pictures in form of a video!

Warning- The following pictures, may casuse serious emotional breakdowns and major feels attack! We advice you to grab a tub of ice cream, a box of tissues and have an ambulance’s  number on speed dial.

The Official Poster Has Arrived! #SMOSHTheMovie

Teen comedy “Smosh: The Movie,” starring the two dudes behind the popular YouTube channel of the same name, is slated to premiere July 23 and subsequently will be available widely across multiple distributors.

The movie, co-produced by Defy and AwesomenessTV, stars Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox of YouTube’s Smosh channels — which collectively have some 30 million subscribers — in what’s billed as a modern-day version of “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” Indeed, “Smosh: The Movie” is directed by Alex Winter, who co-starred with Keanu Reeves in the 1989 time-travel romp.

The July 23 world premiere in Anaheim, Calif., is scheduled to coincide with digital-video conference VidCon. Following the premiere, “Smosh: The Movie” will be launched in a limited theatrical release as well as on digital and VOD platforms.

YouTube stars who appear in the movie include Jenna Marbles, Grace Helbig, Harley Morenstein, Mark Fischback (“Markplier”) and Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval, as well as Jillian Nelson, Brittan Ross, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Michael Ian Black.

Lionsgate last fall acquired global distribution rights to “Smosh: The Movie”. The production was jointly financed by DreamWorks Animation’s AwesomenessTV and Defy Media, in which Lionsgate has an equity interest.

“‘Smosh: The Movie’ marks a major next step in serving the millions of Smosh fans and an opportunity to entertain millions more,” said Defy Media CEO Matt Diamond.

The picture was written by Eric Falconer (“Blue Mountain State,” “How I Met Your Mother”) and Steve Marmel. Film is exec produced by Padilla, Hecox, Defy’s Barry Blumberg, Brett Bouttier, Joe Davola and Shauna Phelan. AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins (“Varsity Blues,” “Expelled”) serves as Producer.

And yesterday, the official Instagram account for the most famous YouTube channel released the official poster to their movie titled SMOSH-The Movie

How cool! Innit?

OUCH! One Direction Fans BOO Zayn Malik During OTRAT-Cardiff.

One Direction fans booed Zayn Malik at the band’s first UK gig without him tonight.

Remaining bandmates Louis, Niall, Harry and Liam performed in Cardiff, and when they showed their fans an old concert video – Zayn’s part in it did NOT go down well.

As the camera spanned each of their faces, there were loud cheers for all of the singer, but as it turned to Zayn’s face at the end, the crowd erupted in boos.

Fans have shared the clip on social media, and one user wrote: “OH MY GOD THE 1D CROWD IN CARDIFF BOOED WHEN ZAYN CAME ON THE SCREEN.”

Another added: “Fans booed Zayn during You&I advertise .”

Ouch.

Zayn fans were quick to hit out at Cardiff supporters after watching the series of clips, as one wrote: “i hate cardiff i still can’t believe yall booed zayn.”

Another wrote: “I LITERALLY HATE EVERY PERSON WHO WAS THERE AT THE OTRA CARDIFF AND BOOED ZAYN I HATE YOU.”

There was a whole lot of love for the rest of the band tonight, as they took to the stage with their biggest hits – and it sounded great by the looks of more clips online.

Nothing official was announced so I think it’s just a hoax that has turned into a frenzy amongst fans.

Uhoh – serious split in Directioners here.

There was a whole lot of love for the rest of the band tonight, as they took to the stage with their biggest hits – and it sounded great by the looks of more clips online.

Excitement was sparked on twiitter recently when the hashtag #WelcomeBackTo1DZaynMalik trended

Nothing official was announced so we think it’s just a hoax that has turned into a frenzy amongst fans.

AFTER Movie Update!

Thank (or blame, depending on how you feel about it) Fifty Shades of Grey: Another famous piece of fanfiction is getting turned into a movie. Paramount is moving ahead with After, an adaptation of theOne Direction-inspired novel by Anna Todd, with the help of Mom and Two and a Half Men writer Susan McMartin. Find out all about the One Direction fanfiction movie after the jump.

After is like Fifty Shades of Grey in more ways than one. Todd’s story began as a popular bit of fanfiction on Wattpad, where it racked up over 1 billion reads. It later got picked up by Simon Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint, and after some reworking (including new names for the characters), was published in fall 2014.

Also like Fifty Shades of GreyAfter centers around the steamy but rocky romance between a virginal student (here named Tessa) and an emotionally unavailable bad boy (here named Hardin, and loosely modeled after One Direction band member Harry Styles). Todd herself has described her book as “the vanilla version of Fifty Shades of Grey”

Paramount picked up the rights to After in October, a few days ahead of its publication. Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman are producing. No director or stars have been announced. (For her part, Todd has said she envisions Douglas Booth and Indiana Evans in the lead roles. “I would love Harry to do it, but I can’t imagine him getting into that kind of role,” she told E! last year. “He is too sweet to play him.”)

It’s hard to blame Paramount for wanting to replicate the success Universal found with Fifty Shades of Grey. Made on a budget of $40 million, it wound up grossing $569 million worldwide. Indeed, others are following the Fifty Shades formula even more closely — in 2013, Constantin Films acquired the rights to Beautiful Bastard, based on a different Twilightfanfiction story.

McMartin is known for her work on the CBS shows Mom and Two and a Half Men. She also wrote the script for Cook, an  upcoming film starring Eddie Murphy and Britt Robertson.
