Zayn Malik on his relationship with former One Direction members: “Everything is on a civil level”

Posted on 2 min read 79 views

After abruptly parting ways with One Direction in March 2015, singer Zayn Malik has revealed that he still keeps in touch with his former bandmates and that everything is civil.

“We’re in touch,” Zayn said in a recent interview with US Weekly. “Everything is on a civil level. It’s not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re growing as individual men, but we still check in.”

Zayn did reveal, however, that the member of the group he was never really close with was Harry Styles:

“To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band,” he said. “So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”

As for whether Zayn would be up for a 1D reunion, he said: “Who knows? I’ve said it before: Never say never.”

While Zayn’s former bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne both have kids now, Zayn has revealed that he doesn’t feel pressure to settle down and start a family.

“I don’t think things like that should be decided based on feeling pressure. When it’s the right time and place, hopefully that will happen. Who knows when that will be,” he said.

In the meantime, Zayn has been hard at work on his second album, which he says:

“We’ve got some big people working on stuff. There’s soulful R&B tunes, club tunes, some pop songs. It’s a progression. My writing’s grown and I feel like I’ve grown. I just wanted to get all of that in the album and give people some new music.”

Zayn Malik opens up on girlfriend Gigi Hadid

Posted on 2 min read 91 views

Singer Zayn Malik recently opened up on his personal style and girlfriend Gigi Hadid in a new interview with US Weekly, where he revealed whether his model GF helps him with his personal style, and what they like to do for a typical date night.

“I just wear whatever feels good on the day,” Zayn said about his style. “I’m not really one to overthink things; whatever looks good I’ll put on. But I have a serious problem for sneakers and trainers.”

The Dusk Till Dawn singer also said he doesn’t have any fashion regrets (at least so far).

“Nothing so far,” he said. “It’s probably gonna happen in a few years and I’m gonna look back like, “Oh, s–t,” but right now I’m cool with everything.”

As for whether Gigi helps Zayn pick out his clothes, the singer said: “She doesn’t really pick out my outfits, but we do the normal thing between boyfriend and girlfriend where we’re like, ‘I like this,’ or ‘that looks nice on you.'”

‘“Does my ass look big in this?”’ Zayn joked about what he asks Gigi about his clothes.

As Zayn and Gigi approach the two-year dating mark, Zayn also opened up about what it’s like to date in the spotlight: “We try not to think about it too much,” he said. “There are a lot of people who are too busy in other people’s lives. I just concentrate on my relationship and try to do right by my girlfriend and she does by me, and we hope for the best, as we all do!”

Zayn also revealed that a typical date night for the couple is: “We both cook, so we like to make meals for each other. I make chicken and sweet corn pie. She likes that.”

In case you missed it, Zayn dropped his first single off of his upcoming second album last week. You can check out his new song Dusk till Dawn here!

Zayn Malik on his second album: “It’s definitely an evolution”

Posted on 2 min read 68 views

After dropping From Dusk Till Dawn yesterday, singer Zayn Malik has opened up to Fact about the inspiration behind the song’s heist-themed music video and what his fans can expect from his second album.

“It’s definitely a nod to a particular era of music videos,” he says about the video, which is the first official single off of his upcoming album. “The early ‘90s, around that period, people really tried to make these epic, intense movies for their videos, Michael Jackson being a great example of that. I wanted to come back and give my fans something along those lines rather than just some blasé video.”

Zayn also revealed that the video incorporated: “a lot of reference from old gangster movies that I grew up watching – Casino, Goodfellas and so on. I used to watch a lot of aggressive shooting movies. Now to be honest I’m more about watching documentaries on all kinds of random shit on Netflix,” he laughs. “I must be getting old.”

Zayn Malik for Fact

As for his sound on his new album, Zayn revealed that he’s re-embracing his pop roots to experiment with his sound: “That’s where I started and that’s obviously still in there,” he says. “I still like pop music, but it’s about putting my own spin on it, making it me.”

Zayn has also been working with several new producers on his album, saying: “I feel like it’s necessary to get different people helping you with different sounds to elevate you out of your comfort zone sometimes…There’s also some big rap tunes on there, so for those I needed different producers I haven’t worked with before.”

The singer also revealed that his new album won’t have an overarching cohesive sound: “That’s the vibe. Nothing is similar to the track before it on the new record. They’re all standalone songs by themselves. It’s not trying to be an entire body of work – I’m having different thoughts and feelings on every song and the music reflects that as well. Making the record was about asking, what can we fit in that feels out of character for R&B? It’s still got that underlying tone, and experiments with that.”

Zayn Malik Opens Up on Pressures of Fame in New Book: “I was suffering from an eating disorder”

Posted on 1 min read 93 views

Singer Zayn Malik‘s new autobiography Zayn drops today (November 1), in which the former One Direction star opens up on how the pressures of fame got to him during his non-stop schedule with the boyband.

In the book, Zayn opens up about his anxiety, and reveals for the first time that it wasn’t his only struggle:

“When I look back at the images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was,” he writes. “Something I’ve never talked about in public before, but which I have come to terms with since leaving the band, is that I was suffering from an eating disorder.”

Zayn later explained: “I realised that I wasn’t eating as much just down to the amount of work that we were doing. Our schedule was kind of crazy, so we were all over the place.”

“It was just more down to losing track of, you know, actually eating, and being super busy and getting caught up with other things that 17- or 18-year-olds do, which normally entails them going out, drinking or partying.”

“I was never diagnosed with [an eating disorder],” he said.

Zayn says that he is now much better at managing his eating.

Zayn Malik on Potentially Acting in the Future: “I’d definitely be interested if I was given the right role.”

Posted on 2 min read 65 views

Singer Zayn Malik smoulders on the new September 2016 issue of Elle UK magazine, where he opens up about leaving One Direction, his interest in trying out acting, and more!

On Leaving One Direction:

“At that time in my life I felt I had done everything I could do there and I just needed to change it up. It didn’t feel brave. I just don’t have it in me to feel fully secure in anything I do. I always strive towards something better. It’s why I think sometimes I come across the wrong way, a bit distant. I’m just stressed out trying to control how I’m perceived. I think about things a lot.”

On His New Solo Career:

“My entire life has changed in the last year. I’m still taking it all in. I’ve found so much out about myself. Mostly how in love with music I still was. The album is a build up of six years and never being able to express what I wanted to say. I had something to get off my chest.”

On Potentially Acting in the Future:

“I started acting when I was in school with theatre studies and then music came after. It completely stopped when I joined the band but I’d definitely be interested if I was given the right role.”

On his Personal Style:

“Since leaving One Direction I’ve been given the freedom to be able to wear whatever I want and that’s made it more interesting. More creative. I can say I want to wear metal arms and it’ll happen.”

On his mum and sisters:

“I enjoyed the womanly influence. I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful and do everything themselves…”

On girlfriend Gigi Hadid:

“She’s super intelligent, I think that’s why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other.”
