One Direction are reportedly exhausted from their hectic schedule and want a break.
The boy band have been touring for months, and are feeling the toll of non-stop traveling.
Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson have spent most of 2013 on the road, playing 131 dates in just ten months.
And now they’re ready to take a break.
“We had a bit of time off after finishing the world tour but the new album came out last week so we are doing all the promo for that,” Niall told UK newspaper the Daily Star.
“Jet lag kills me. The flying is OK, I don’t mind that – but the jet lag is a nightmare. I was up today at 7am, watched a bit of Jeremy Kyle and then slept right through until 5pm.”
According to the newspaper, bosses at record label Syco understand the need for rest. They have reportedly given the group time off over Christmas to recuperate and have some down time.
“We’ve got some time off over Christmas. It will give us a chance to relax and enjoy it with the family. We are busy but you just have to get on with it,” Niall added.
“We’re working on plans for next year. We’ve got an awful lot coming up.”
“They have been so busy working on so many projects it’s left them exhausted,” an industry insider said.
