Zayn Malik has admitted that he never wanted to be in One Direction!



Zayn Malik has revealed that he never wanted to be in One Direction!

The Bradford born star was put together with Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall on the X Factor in 2010... the lads went on to become the busy band in the world!

But, Zayn has revealed that after the first year... he knew it wasn't for him!

'I just gave it a go because it was there at the time. I think I kinda always wanted to go. From the first year, I never really wanted to be there in the band.

'When I realised the direction that we were going in, mind the pun, with the music, I instantly realised it wasn't for me. How do you write a song from five people's perspective?'

Zayn Malik left millions of fans heartbroken last year when he left One Direction explaining that he wanted to be like a 'normal 22 year old'.

He's set to release his first solo single on Friday, 'Pillowtalk' will be the debut tune from his album which he revealed is called 'Mind of Mine'.

Zayn recently spoke out about his time in One Direction and His Ex Perrie Edwards - check it out here.
