Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has thrown the boyband plenty of shade since he left the group exactly one year ago BUT it doesn't seem like the 23-year-old Bradford native will stop any time soon!
In the April/May edition of Complex magazine, Zayn continues to speak of his past frustrations with the band and its music. Feeling like he couldn't be heard during interviews thanks to his bandmates being louder than him, Zayn said: "It was about denying the authenticity of who I was, and what I enjoyed about music, and why I got into it."
"That was something that was always underlying," he continued. "[It] ended up as the main factor of me leaving in the end. That was always there. It was one of the things that wasn't going to go away, so I had to go away."
Now that he's dating supermodel Gigi Hadid, Zayn says he's trying to keep his work life and personal life as separate as possible: "I'm learning to deal with it. It's just one of those things now, in the background. I just leave it as a bit of noise in the background."
