It’s a sad day for Harmonizers. After six years together, girl group Fifth Harmony announced that they’re going on hiatus. Just how long will the Fifth Harmony hiatus be? We’re not sure. All we know is that we’re extremely bummed.
Members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui announced the Fifth Harmony hiatus on Twitter on Monday, March 19th. They said that while they’re apart, they’re looking forward to trying new things and growing as individuals.
“We are all very excited and grateful to be able to take this time to learn and grow creatively and really find our footing as individuals,” Fifth Harmony said in the statement. “In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths and perspectives that we can bring back to our Fifth Harmony family.”
The reason behind the Fifth Harmony hiatus makes a lot of sense: They’re ready to try their hand at going solo. Just like former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello, who left the group in December of 2016, did.
“After six years going hard, non stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors,” the statement continued.
Here’s Fifth Harmony’s full statement.
Of course, Twitter has a LOT of feelings about the Fifth Harmony hiatus.
Some people think Fifth Harmony didn’t get the chance to live up to their full potential as a group.
Others find the Fifth Harmony hiatus a bit ironic.
Before Cabello left the group, she reportedly suggested a hiatus so the girls could explore solo endeavors. And at the time, her suggestion was not received well.
Even if people saw the Fifth Harmony hiatus coming, they’re still surprised.
And having flashbacks.
Some people are already forming Fifth Harmony hiatus conspiracy theories, because of course they are.
Above all else, people are just going to miss Fifth Harmony.
And they’re positive the group will leave a big legacy behind.
Even though we’re bummed about the Fifth Harmony hiatus, we can’t wait to see what exciting new projects these ladies tackle next.
