New Kids On The Block Yahoo Interview

By Liam Dryden

The dads of the boyband universe know firsthand that Zayn's departure won't be the end of the world.

In the past month and a half since Zayn Malik's departure from One Direction, everyone and their mum has shared their opinion on it. In fact, so many people have pitched in their two cents, that we probably have enough to buy the band.

But other than some empathetic Tweets from the alumni of Take That, we haven't really heard much from other boybands. Fortunately, in a new interview with ultimate boyband dads New Kids On The Block, Directioners finally have the advice that they've been waiting to hear.

"It's really heartbreaking when guys leave boybands," admits Donnie Wahlberg to Yahoo. "Like when Bobby Brown left New Edition, or when John Knight left New Kids; but only to return more triumphant!"

"Don't fret, One Direction fans; Zayn may return one day".

Thanks for that, Donnie. You can watch the full interview with the manband below.
