Another day, another interview full of Zayn Malik's secrets. This time, he isn't dissing his former bandmates at all, he's really just putting the blame on himself. He reveals that he actually never felt a part of One Direction which is literally making us cry over here! We can't imagine how Zayn felt doing something for years that he was never really comfortable with!
"Now that I can really be myself and make music that feels honest to me, it doesn’t feel like work. It really is relaxing to me. When I decided to leave, it wasn’t a big build up, it had always been underlying. I never felt like I belonged in the group, I was just doing it because at the time, I felt like it was the right place for me to be," he said.
"To be honest, I mentally and physically distanced myself from what I was doing creatively because I didn’t want any part of it really. It didn’t feel like I was really being me."
Aww! We're happy that Zayn can finally release what he's been keeping inside for all of these years. It will be super exciting to find out more about him not only as a person but as an artist when he drops his first tracks!
