Is Zayn Malik playing hooky on ‘The Voice’ for the grocery store? The day after Zayn cancelled his performance on the show’s finale, he was spotted grocery shopping in Los Angeles. See the pic right here!
Caught ya, Zayn Malik! The 23-year-old singer had fans in a frenzy after he cancelled his appearance on The Voice finale on May 23, but just one day later, he was seen casually strolling through an LA grocery store. And if Zayn thought he was safe from the spotlight while getting groceries, he better think again — cameras captured his mysteriously timed visit to the shop!
UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Zayn did NOT cancel his performance on ‘The Voice.’ As host Carson Daly announced at the beginning of the finale, he will, in fact, be performing during the show. So exciting!
Surely when a superstar cancels such a huge performance, there’s some major reason for the no-show. Without any details as to why Zayn had to cancel, though, it’s hard not to pinpoint grocery shopping as at least one of his excuses after seeing the pictures! Looking casual in a black jeans and jacket ensemble and white sneakers, Zayn didn’t make himself obvious during his shopping trip. But considering he sparked such major hubbub with fans after not showing up to the Voice, simply being in public was awfully daring for Zayn!
Although Zayn didn’t publicly announce that he had to cancel his Voice performance, an angry fan immediately took to inform fellow fans that Zayn wouldn’t be there. Along with a picture of a wristband and ticket for the Voice taping, the fan wrote, “HE WAS PERFORMING TODAY AND TOMORROW. THE JENNIFER GIRL PERFORMED AND THEN THEY TOLD US ZAYN WASNT PERFORMING -A.”
The fan was actually at a pre-taping for the Voice finals, which is where country star Jennifer Nettles and Zayn were set to film their performances. From the sounds of it, either Zayn decided to wait until last minute to cancel, or the producers knew the whole time and decided not to tell fans until it was too late. Either way, seeing Zayn at the grocery store hardly even 12 hours after all of this happened is definitely strange!
As if it wasn’t peculiar enough to see Zayn out and about post-cancellation, he also happened to be with a mystery blonde on his grocery run — and it wasn’t Gigi Hadid! But Zigi fans need not worry, because Zayn wasn’t showing any kind of PDA with the girl at the grocery store. And since Gigi just shared a sweet Instagram about how she missed Zayn just three days before, it seems there’s nothing to fret over on that front.
While it still remains unclear what caused Zayn to scrap his Voice performance, HollywoodLife.com is getting word that Zayn couldn’t film on night one of the finale but is able to perform on night two. On the bright side, because it couldn’t be pretaped, that means it’ll be LIVE! Maybe Zayn will bring something along from the produce aisle, huh?
Why do you think Zayn couldn’t perform on The Voice, HollywoodLifers? Was it bizarre for him to be in public after canceling his appearance? Tell us below!
