10 times Cookie Lyon from ‘Empire’ embodied us and our obsession with One Direction

Here at MP! we love our weekly dose of Cookie Lyon on ‘Empire‘ – we’re also obsessed with One Direction (incase you missed the memo). So we thought why not combine the two? Cookie is without a doubt one of the most quotable TV show characters of the 21st century, so here are some of our faves. (We could literally quote her in any One Direction situation.)

1. When we tried to buy tickets to the ‘On The Road Again’ tour.anigif_enhanced-28219-1443379545-3Don’t get us wrong, we hope you all got your tickets. But at the time we NEEDED them, and we weren’t going to take no for an answer.

2. When people joke about Harry cutting off his luscious locks…anigif_enhanced-14996-1443378419-6Don’t ever joke about this – Harry’s hair is a rare and precious blessing to the earth.

3. Remember in the early days when you tried to get the boys attention and you’d do just about anything to get noticed?anigif_enhanced-2783-1443378665-2We might not have thrown our shoe at the boys but we’re defo guilty of trying to win them over. WE ALL CRAZY FOR DEM BOYS.

4. When we caught eye contact with them at any event or concert.anigif_enhanced-4804-1443379578-11Listen boys, you must know who Maximum Pop! are? Literally everything we write about has a One Direction reference in it…

5. Counterpoint: You can run but…anigif_optimized-2653-1443378711-4Why? Because we love you and support you ALWAYS.

6. Remember when Zayn announced that he was leaving the band?anigif_optimized-22021-1422225488-1And by ‘thug’ we clearly mean when he was rollin with his bandmates – making beautiful pop tunes.

7. But we got over that pretty quickly.anigif_optimized-27243-1422225610-28Because Zayn is the bomb diggity, and his solo music is literally music to our ears.

8. You know when the boys post a new picture and you’re literally just…tumblr_nlfqghv0Wn1qk08n1o1_500You have no words, only facial expressions and everyone around you asks you if you’re “okay”. Does it look like we’re okay? We need a moment to screenshot and send it into the 1D group chat. (Yes, we do have one of those!)

9. You know when the boys announced their break and we were all left questioning life as we know it?tumblr_nydc1hMDFs1uzlmbho1_500SHE LITERALLY SAW IT COMING. Cookie gets us on a deep and spiritual level.

10. But it’s okay because the love for our boys is unconditional whether they’re together or not.tumblr_nwjkocy7yN1u5351mo1_500We seriously couldn’t be any prouder of our huns. They’re becoming beautiful young men aren’t they? *crying*

So there you have it, 10 times Cookie Lyon from ‘Empire’ was literally us declaring our weird love for One Direction. Did you connect with Cookie through this post? Let us know over on Twitter @maximumpop,
