Zayn Malik can finally look back on his time with the British boyband One Direction without anger. The 25-year-old singer left the band in March 2015, because he no longer liked it.
Until recently, the singer could not say that. “There was so much bullshit”, says Malik about One Direction. “When I look back at our last performances, in stadiums, I see that I never really could enjoy it, it all went too fast.”
The band, which was formed in the television series X Factor, became enormously popular in a short time. “We went from theaters to arenas to stadiums, there was no subtle transition, it went from tree, tree, tree, I think that such a thing, especially if you are 17 or 18, has a big influence on your mental condition. with five different personalities. “
After his departure, Malik talked a lot about his experiences with his surroundings. “I did not have any therapy, but I talked a lot with my parents, my sisters, my girlfriend (Gigi Hadid, ed.) And her mother, and in the end I could see that it’s all okay.”
It is no secret that Malik has had no contact with his former colleagues from One Direction for years. “That’s the way it is: people go on with their lives, they grow apart and they become adults.”
