Zayn Malik is an English singer and songwriter and got his foot in the door when he auditioned for The X Factor in 2010. He was voted off the show but the judges brought him back as a member of the group now known as One Direction. The boy band became huge as they released a handful of albums from 2011 to 2014. Malik left the group in 2015 and signed with RCA Records in early 2016 releasing his first solo album, Mind of Mine in March of 2016.
Zayn is one of the most famous Muslims in the world even though he doesn’t like to talk about it. Due to the stigma his religion carries, he keeps quiet about it because he does not want to offend any of his fans. He is very concerned of people judging him for what he believes.
He loves reading, writing, playing different instruments, and collecting comic books.
After the breakup with Perrie Edwards, Zayn is now head over heels for his new girl, Gigi Hadid.
Malik keeps his politics close to his vest because like his religion, he doesn’t want to make any waves in the media. He likes to stick to his music and tries to stay out of the social media spotlight.
Rumors of members in One Direction being gay have been circulating for a while now and Liam Payne even admitted to kissing Zayn. Zayn denies any gay relationships however he does support gay marriage and rights.
Zayn is a Capricorn, born on January 12, 1993.
Malik says if he were a girl he would date Liam Payne.
