Although fans of Pink Floyd may be very "uncomfortably numb" with the news, One Direction and Little Mix, X-factor winners who have been noted for their extraordinary lack of any real talent, will be getting together to not play any instruments and not write any songs for a Pink Floyd cover.
The proceeds of the cover will go directly to themselves, or in the case of No Direction, through the Irish subsidiary they are currently directors of so as to avoid paying tax.
Emerging from a meeting with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and the late Syd Barrett, all were said to be very pleased, although David Gilmour did complain that he didn't understand a word two of the Little Mix girls were saying, and he did find the habit Harry Styles has of continually adjusting his trousers every time one of the girls spoke very irritating.
The next part of the process for organising the cover will see the 8 youngsters heading off (except for the One Direction twerp who will go and get even more tattoos) to W H Smith's for crayons, paper and a copy of "Drawing for Dummies" so that they can complete their Pink Floyd cover on time, as Pink Floyd will soon have the CD to go in it recorded and ready for sale.
However non-customers who acquire the album through the popular file sharing sites will miss out on, what Simon Cowell and his judging panel puppets, who took several minutes out from their weekly strategising of who's being thrown out of the competition next week, have described as:
