2. SOUNDBITE (English) Louis Tomlinson, recording artist - PART OVERLAID WITH ONE DIRECTION B-ROLL
(Reporter: "What status is One Direction at at the moment? Pending?")
"Yeah, paused probably sounds good - better than that stupid word 'hiatus.' I think that's probably one of our press guys: 'There's a good word for you.' No! Yeah, we're on a little break, a little pause, as you say. I say the same thing whenever I answer this question: It's inevitable. We owe the fans, right? We owe the fans that we, that we... They deserve for us to get back together one day, absolutely. When that will happen, I don't think any of us have got any idea at the moment, but we'll all be back together one day."
(Reporter: "Is there a temptation to collaborate?")
"With each other?"
"I'm trying to find an analogy for why it might feel cheap when you've only got half of the main thing, you know. Like, so let's say I did a collaboration with Liam (Payne) or whatever - if I was a fan, I'd kind of want the whole thing, or individuals, or nothing, you know. And also I think what's kind of interesting, and it's been interesting for the fans as well, is we haven't, we've made quite different music, so it would be hard on our solo stuff to align a little bit more."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Louis Tomlinson, recording artist:
"What's amazing about the relationship with the other lads is, you know, we might not have spoken to each other for a couple of months, but it never feels like a long time. It always just feels like it always was, so it's a nice feeling."
