Zayn Malik Left One Direction, But Hey, Remember — We Still Have Harry Styles — PHOTOS

Fans all over the world are still in mourning following Wednesday's shocking announcement that Zayn Malik left One Direction. Though I'll certainly miss the 22-year-old singer's heavenly ad-libs at the end of nearly every 1D song, according to People, Malik told The Sun on Friday that he just "wasn't happy" being a part of the band anymore. It was time for him to move on, to fly free like a bird... a bird with really ridiculously long eyelashes. If you ask me, Directioners need to start the process of picking themselves up off the floor — life will go on! One Direction isn't doomed to fail or fall apart now that Malik is gone, no. Everything's gonna be alright: we still have Harry Styles!

I'm just going to come right out and say it: Harry Styles is the best — way better than Tom Hiddleston, and way better than Benedict Cumberbatch (and no, I won't apologize). Not only is Styles a major dreamboat, he's also a humanitarian, a kind, sensitive soul, and a super freakin' talented performer. There's no reason to shed another single tear over Malik's departure — Styles is here to ease your pain.

Here are just a few of the times Harry Styles proved he's the most perfect human being in the whole entire world:

When He Melted Your Heart With His Smile


When He Was A Lil' Rascal

What a little scamp.

When He Danced Like No One Was Watching

Look out for Styles in the next Step Up movie! (Juuust kidding. I mean, he was asked, but he's just way too busy.)

When He Looked Into Your Soul

Breathtaking, tbh.

When He Said This


When He Introduced Himself & It Was The Best Thing You've Ever Seen For Some Reason

Why can I not stop watching this?

When He Made This Face

I like to think he was doing his best Mrs. Doubtfire impression.

When He Did This

He's an angel.

And When He Effortlessly Put Liam Payne In His Place

What a guy. One Direction's future looks bright.
