If you guessed Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, you're right!
The boys of 1D made their thoughts very clear on the album leak at their book signing of Where We Are, and they're slightly annoyed at the fact their fans found Midnight Memories early!
"It is annoying because there's this big build-up and it affects sales. We really want a number one, so we're just kind of hoping for the best now. Hopefully people go out and buy it."
Oh Liam, we're sure you'll still get that number one you're looking for!
They wouldn't be your fans if they didn't get more than one copy, right? Lolz!
Louis continued with the thought, saying:
"It's just frustrating when you work so hard on an album and you kind of want everyone to hear it at the same time. Some select fans won't listen to it until it's out, which is great. But there are others who obviously can't help themselves."
Kudos to those fans who have the willpower to wait another week for Midnight Memories to ACTUALLY be released to the public!
Harry also chimed into the conversation:
"It's just nice to have an impact. If there was an album I liked and I could listen to it a week before, I probably would.
It's just nice to have that moment where it builds up to, 'Now it's out and everyone can listen to it'."
Well, Harry understands the fangirls' needs! Lolz!!
Liam wrapped up the conversation and said:
"It happens these days all the time. There are some very clever people out there. You're buggers!"
Oh, those Directioners! They're so sneaky!
But the ABtastic Liam is right! It does seem to be a usual occurrence these days for albums to leak!
How do you even know where to look for albums?!
It looks like some Directioners have mad hacking skillz!
