When Zayn Malik attacked One Direction in an interview once again, Harry Styles was annoyed at being insulted — except it turns out that Zayn wasn’t going after his bandmates after all. Get the scoop here!
Zayn Malik, 23, has said countless times that he finally feels “free” now that he’s out of One Direction, and his comments have been pissing off Harry Styles, 22. However, we’ve learned that Zayn actually “loves” Harry and the others, and it’s all been one big misunderstanding!
A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Zayn didn’t mean to diss his bandmates — he only meant that he didn’t love his time in the band. “Zayn doesn’t understand why Harry or any of the other guys are taking what he said in his recent interview personally,” the insider says. “He never said he had an issue with the members. He feels like he’s being attacked for no reason. He has nothing but love for the guys and just wants to move on.” Whew, that certainly clears the air!
Of course, Zayn has said some stuff that’s hard to brush off. “Whenever I would suggest something, it was like it didn’t fit us. There was just a general conception that the management already had of what they want for the band, and I just wasn’t convinced with what we were selling. I wasn’t 100 percent behind the music,” he told Entertainment Weekly. Still, we’re so glad that he doesn’t harbor any ill will towards his mates.
As we previously told you, Harry isn’t bothered by Zayn’s comments, which also include him calling 1D’s music “uncool” and that he felt creatively stifled while in the band. “Every time that Zayn throws any shade toward his time in One Direction, Harry is the first one to laugh it off. At first he was mad but now it is just complete nonsense,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Zayn may have dissed the era he was with the band, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about its members!
