Zayn Malik Admits He Never Wanted To Be in One Direction | NEWS

What happens when you try out for The X Factor as a solo artist, you get sent home, and you get the opportunity to further on in the competition as part of a boy band with 4 other guys you get along with? You take the opportunity. But what happens when that group goes on to not only win the show, but becomes one of the biggest music acts of our time? Nothing. You’re stuck. You ride the wave, whether you want to or not. That’s exactly what happened to Zayn Malik, the Middle Eastern-British star of One Direction. In a recent Apple Music interview with Zane Lowe, Malik talks about why he quit the group last year; and admits that he never wanted to be there to begin with:

 

“I think I always kind of wanted to go. From like the first year really, I never really wanted to be there in the band. I just gave it a go because it was there at the time and then when I realized the direction we were going in with the music, I instantly realized it wasn’t for me because I realized I couldn’t put any input in; I couldn’t give my opinion on this or that because it didn’t fit the grain of what we were as a band or what we represented. So that’s when it became frustrating for me, that’s when I had to be like, I’ve got to start thinking about myself.”
