It is amazing how so many people can invest so much into their idols, especially when it comes to following a musician or band. When it was announced that Zayn Malik had decided to quit the British boyband One Direction, there were millions of devastated fans around the world, with broken hearts and tears aplenty.
Since Zayn Malik quit One Direction, there have been a number of rumours suggesting what his reasons were, with the singer himself now coming out to put it to rest and reveal exactly what it was that made him quit the band. It seems that Zayn might have had an alien encounter, which pushed him to finally walk away from One Direction.
Zayn was talking to Complex magazine, when he explained, "An alien spoke to me in a dream...", he said, before then going on to clarify, "That was something that was always underlying, and ended up as the main factor of me leaving in the end."
He added, "It was about denying the authenticity of who I was, and what I enjoyed about music, and why I got into it. That was always there. It was one of the things that wasn’t going to go away, so I had to go away."
Whatever his reasons, Zayn Malik clearly made the right choice for him and he has already been enjoying plenty of success on his own. As well as enjoying success as a solo artist, Zayn has also bagged himself a supermodel girlfriend, as he is now dating the sexy Gigi Hadid. Good work Zayn!
