They used to call you on your cell phone?
One Direction has apparently cut ties with former member Zayn Malik and he's being very open about it. The new solo pop star has been making waves for weeks as he's started to carve out his own path. However, some of his comments have left a sour taste in the mouths of some fans. They believe that he's slightly bitter and frankly rude after his departure.
"Nah."I didn't buy the album
The interview didn't leave him holding anything back as he continued about how he has primarily lost contact with his former band mates, "I had every intention of remaining friends with everybody," Malik told Billboard. "But I guess certain phone numbers have changed and I haven't received calls from a lot of people. I've reached out to a few of them and not got a reply. Certain people have pride issues, but it's stuff you overcome in time."
But many fans are questioning why Malik felt the need to leave one of the most successful boy bands of all time. Malik's opinion of the band?
"f--king machine going constantly"
Malik went on to talk about the sound of the band in a not so positive way way,"as good music, but I don't fuck with it. That was never cool where I was from."
And his main problem?
"We weren't allowed to say certain things, or word [lyrics] the way we would want to," Malik said. "I'd sit and wonder, 'If the fans knew how it worked, what would they think?' My argument was: People are more intelligent than that. They want to hear what's real, so why don't we write some stuff that we're actually going through?"
