Zayn Malik has revealed that he is still battling major insecurities as a solo artist, especially since he was forced to pull out of his first UK solo performance, the Capital FM Summertime Ball, due to “the worst anxiety of his career.”

The 23-year-old explained, “I just don't have it in me to feel fully secure in anything I do. I always strive towards something better.”

He continued, “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.”

It’s amazing that Zayn can open up about his insecurities. We love you!
