Zayn Malik Gets Honest About His Current Relationship With the Other One Direction Members

Zayn Malik is on the cover of this week’s issue of Billboard, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 24-year-old Mind of Mine singer had to say:

On spending time in a farm in rural Pennsylvania working on his second album: “The farm is out of the way and feels grounded. I do a lot of farm work. I take the horses out and feed the cows and that kind of stuff. It’s cool. I’ve always been interested in animals.”

On no longer staying in touch with the other One Direction members: “Our relationships have definitely changed since we were in a band together, but I think that’s just life. Everybody grows up; two of the guys have got kids now. But no, I don’t talk to any of them, really.”

On working with Taylor Swift on “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”: “I felt like she was the right artist for the song. And of course she’s also a massive artist, so that brings its benefits. I get to let her fans know that I’m doing this kind of music, and she lets her fans know she likes my kind of music – there’s no opposition, for real.”

    Good on Zayn. Genuine guy. Look forward to his next album. He is a remarkable talent.

    1D was told what to do & how to do it, told what to say & how to say it, told what to sing & how to sing it & told to be happy.

    Now the truth is coming out and gullible fans don’t like it. All of the 1D guys are going to have to expunge the false image that has been created around them that most fans have bought into. Like Zayn, they are going to have to re-educate the public as to who they really are & not some fictitious & plastic creation of their management & PR teams.

    There were many layers to this interview. He discusses that he has a farm and shares lots of interesting tidbits but the headlines only focus on what he has to say about 1D. I am tired of the media bias. Zayn is a beautiful guy and a talented musician with a lot to offer this world. The photoshoot was gorgeous.
