Zayn, I know you must be going though a lot right now but you need to keep your fans in mind, especially during this transitional period. Just be honest with us!
Zayn Malik, 22, announced he was leaving One Direction on March 25 and fans have had an uneasy feeling ever since. The billions of fans all over the world would have no problem being supportive of his decision, if he was being honest with us, which he’s clearly not. Here’s why I think it’s so important for Zayn to speak, not to a magazine or newspaper, but to his fans!
Zayn Malik: Fans Just Need Your Honesty Right Now
Zayn, it’s okay to part ways with One Direction if that’s truly what you want. It’s okay to want to pursue a solo career. It’s okay to release your own music — but you need to start opening up and being honest with your fans who have stuck by your side for 5 years.
The day you walked away from One Direction, you released a statement saying:
“I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.”
And that is totally respectable and fine! However, hearing your first solo song not even a week after your departure stings a little. If you were just honest from the beginning by admitting you wanted to pursue a solo career, your fans wouldn’t be so upset and hurt.
Also, why haven’t you reached out to Directioners AT ALL since you quit? You’ve spoken to reporters and released solo music — why can’t you just send a simple tweet with some honest thoughts and feelings?
Your fans love you, Zayn, and it would mean the world to us to hear some honesty coming from you. HollywoodLifers, do you agree? Let us know how you feel in the comments below!
