Zayn Malik is making a lot of news after he decided to quit the hit boy band, One Direction. All members from his band spoke about him and finally, the singer and now ex-member of One Direction spoke about his decision.
"It is crazy and wild and a bit mad," Zayn told The Sun just six hours after his announcement. "But at the same time I've never felt more in control in my life. And I feel like I'm doing what's right - right by myself and right by the boys, so I feel good."
"I did try to do something that I wasn't happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people's happiness', he continued. 'And that was mainly the fans. And I only ever tried to do it for the fans, and it was only ever for them. I'm only upset (because) I feel like I may have let them down in some sort of way... It's not that I've turned my back on them or anything, it's just that I just can't do that anymore because it's not real to me."
Denying rumours of differences between band members, Zayn said, "I'm only upset (because) I feel like I may have let them down in some sort of way. That's the main thing that I don't want to happen. It's not that I've turned my back on them or anything, it's just that I just can't do that anymore because it's not real to me."
Zayn Malik has quit One Direction after five years, his agent confirmed on 25th March and we have seen members as well as fans breaking down and expressing their grief on social media.
His statement read, "My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world."
The statement also said: "Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year."
