Oh wow! Zayn Malik has revealed in his first on-camera interview since he left One Direction that he “never wanted to be in the band.”
The 23-year-old singer spoke in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s Beats 1Radio. During the chat Zayn spoke about how he knew being in the band wasn’t right for him after just “one year."
The British star told the DJ, “I just gave it a go because it was there at the time. I think I kinda always wanted to go. From the first year, I never really wanted to be there in the band. When I realised the direction that we were going in, mind the pun, with the music, I instantly realized it wasn't for me. How do you write a song from five people's perspective?”
Zayn then spoke about what the other members of band thought about him leaving.
“I think the boys knew that in terms of the music, that wasn't my cup of tea. When I was leaving the band, they didn't want me to leave. But I'd already made up my mind at that point.”
Wowza! Looks like Zayn was over it before the band really began! Hopefully now he can let his creativity flow and he will be happy!
