Zayn Malik Had A Hard Time Joining One Direction
Zayn Malik has opened up about how difficult he found it starting One Direction with his four fellow group members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson. Zayn told Event magazine:
I definitely found it pretty hard to begin with. None of us really knew each other that well and none of us was really prepared. We were thrown in it together. We went through the same things. Our mums were crying when we left home because they weren’t prepared either. I found it pretty hard at first. I was always trying to be too cool, like you do in school. I found it really hard talking to people, answering questions – you don’t want to sound like an idiot, so a lot of the time you don’t say anything at all. You realise everyone is in the same boat. None of us knew what we were doing. You can’t take yourself too seriously, and you all start to relax into being who you are. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to do this on your own – if you weren’t in a band.
It sounds to us like Zayn is in no mood for a future solo career. We’re glad that he and the rest of the members of One Direction have each other to lean on when they are having a difficult day!
