It is easy to get confused with the British music star Zayn Malik, who has regularly contradicted himself since quitting the British boyband One Direction in 2015. At the time, Zayn claimed that he just wanted to lead a normal life and enjoy being a normal 22-year-old, something which the rest of the world knew was going to be impossible for someone so famous on such a global scale.
With that said, not long after, Zayn Malik then announced that he would be working on some new music, collaborating with some exciting names. Not exactly the life of a normal 22 year old. Then, following his split from his long-term relationship with Perrie Edwards, it was revealed that Zayn is now dating American supermodel Gigi Hadid. Again, not the normal life either.
While Zayn Malik has always seemed like the quiet, reserved member of One Direction, which he seemed to confirm with his exit from the boyband, it actually appears that the singer quite likes the attention. Zayn has admitted that he loves dating famous women, saying that things run a lot smoother than if he was to date somebody who was not in the public spotlight.
He explained, "There's no real trust issues in a sense (when dating a famous woman) - like, 'Is this person gonna record me while I'm taking a p**s?' It's just life. The situations that I'm in grant me to be around them sort of people (sic), you know what I mean? And luckily, you get to have a conversation with them sort of people (sic). Because there's a lot of fit celebrity birds (women)."
It will certainly be interesting to see how long the relationship between Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid actually lasts, and just how well the young star will do with his solo career.
