Zayn Malik Opened Up About His Drug Habit In An Interview

Zayn Malik Opened Up About His Drug Habit In An Interview

Zayn was always destined to be the “bad boy” of One Direction, and he’s just gone and proved us all right by admitting he smokes a “couple of joints” every now and again.

Wild, right.

Yes ex-directioner Zayn has left his pop prince persona firmly behind; leaving long-term girlfriend Perrie Edwards for model Gigi Hadid, releasing a song that was definitely about banging and now smoking at least “four impeccably rolled little mind bombs” in an interview with NME.

Alright Zayn, we get it, you’re cool now. Talking to the magazine, he said:

“Ive probably been smoking for a while. I dont wanna say when I started because I dont want to influence anyone else. Thats just something I do myself.

It helps sometimes with the creative process, if youre smoking a good weed.Dont panic, its organic.”

Now that is a catchphrase I can see umm, catching on.

He’s also released his much-awaited new album “Mind of Mine” today…

Zayn Malik: Mind of Mine review downbeat sex jams drive assured rebrand

Zayn Malik: Mind of Mine review  downbeat sex jams drive assured rebrand

The former One Direction members debut, with its Frank Ocean-like falsettos, hazy production flourishes and sad-eyed sentiment, is no box-ticking exercise

Despite his protests of ignorance, the timing of Zayn Maliks debut solo album, Mind of Mine, feels pretty significant. It comes out a year ago to the day after he released a statement confirming hed left One Direction, the juggernaut, X Factor-created boyband that had propelled him from a slightly bored-looking teenager to a slightly bored-looking, incredibly wealthy adult. After leaving the group, he explained that he wanted to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. Months after a very public spat with producer Naughty Boy, signing a solo deal with RCA Records and starting a relationship with model and reality TV star Gigi Hadid after an acrimonious split with his pop star fianc Perrie Edwards, however, it appears he simply got bored of being normal.

Set among the perma-smiling, chino-sporting lineup of One Direction, there was always something oddly compelling about Maliks indifference. Rarely the most vocal in interviews or the most animated onstage (his moves largely boiled down to fiddling with his ear piece and pouting), his allure came from seemingly doing nothing at all. It was like he was chiselled from marble; blank but intriguing. While the smart money went on Harry Styles to forge a solo career, Malik took on the Robbie Williams role, a twinkly-eyed loose cannon who loves his mum but who couldnt keep himself out of the tabloids (weed smoking, allegations of affairs, terrible tattoos). If various interviews are to be believed, he has barely spoken to his former bandmates since.

Zayn Malik has topped the UK album chart with his debut solo album.

Mind of Mine knocked Adele’s 25 from the top spot, with just over 4,000 more sales.

The former One Direction singer told the Offcial Charts Company it was “mind blowing”.

“I can’t believe that I have managed to achieve this as a solo artist.

“I am very proud coming from Bradford achieving this in my home country. “


He added: “It’s mind-blowing to me. I don’t take the support I have received for granted. My life at 23 could have been very different.”

The album’s lead single, Pillowtalk, went straight to number one in February.

Also entering the top five of the album chart are Joe Bonamassa at three with his collection Blues of Desperation and Birdy’s Beautiful Lies at four – the 19-year-old’s highest charting album.

At five is Justin Bieber’s Purpose, which has now spent 20 consecutive weeks in the top five.

1) Zayn Malik Mind of Mine
2) Adele 25

New entries include British metal band Asking Alexandria at 15 with The Black – their highest chart placing, and Swedish metal band Amon Amarth at 30 with Jomsviking.

In the singles chart, Mike Posner remains at number one for a third week with I Took A Pill In Ibiza.

The track had 84,000 combined sales, up on last week’s 82,000, taking the song to Gold certification for passing the 400,000 combined sales mark.

It is also the most streamed song of the week, with just over 4.2 million plays.

The American singer told the Official Chart Company it was “quite an honour” to be number one in the UK.

“I appreciate you making sure I don’t have to get another job, and can do art full-time, and that’s pretty cool.”

Top five singles  
1) Mike Posner I Took a Pill in Ibiza
2) Fifth Harmony Work From Home
3) Lukas Graham 7 Years
4) Sia Cheap Thrills
5) Zara Larsson Lush Life

Fifth Harmony moved up to second place with Work From Home – a career best for the former X Factor USA contenders.

Lukas Graham’s 7 Years moved down to third place in its eighth week in the top three.

The Danish band’s self-titled album is being released this week.

Sia moved up four places to number four with Cheap Thrills, her highest chart placing for her as a lead artist.

Norwegian producer Alan Walker climbs seven places to number 11 with Faded.

The 18-year-old is number one this week in the Official Trending Chart – the list of songs making a big impact in the UK.

Zayn Malik dating Gigi? Holding hands in public – it’s official!

They’ve sparked rumors they’re dating after being spotted together in the past few weeks.
And model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik appeared to confirm the budding relationship as they held hands while leaving trendy club The Nice Guy in West Hollywood in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Zayn Malik dating Gigi

Zayn Malik and Gigi holding hands

Gigi flashed her toned abs in a black crop top and skinny distressed jeans as she locked fingers with the former One Direction singer.
Gigi, who is the daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, split from singer Joe Jonas three weeks ago, around the same time Zayn publicly declared he will ‘always love’ his former fiancee, Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards.
However, they appeared to have moved on – sparking rumors they were together when they were seen together on a string of dates in Los Angeles.
Fans also went into overdrive after Zayn posted a photograph of himself wearing Gigi’s glasses to Instagram.

It seems the rumours have finally been confirmed, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are officially an item. They were snapped out on yet another date together in Los Angeles and Gigi was keeping it coolly casual in her velvet crop top, high-waisted jeans and a leather biker jacket.

The pair were holding hands as they left the club and we can’t blame Zayn for falling for this beauty. She’s got a model figure and after appearing in the Victoria’s Secret campaign this year, we imagine there were a queue of men lining up for the young star – she did look fabulous!

We think Gigi looks just as gorgeous when she’s having a dress-down day too – we love her biker look. Distressed jeans and leather outerwear are always a winner in our eyes and when you throw a taut tum like that into the mix too it gets a huge thumbs up from us!

And on Sunday they appeared very much together as they left the club hand in hand.
The twenty-year-old model wore her blonde hair back in a ponytail, with some stray wisps framing her face.
She covered her crop top with a black leather jacket and wore a thick black choker necklace.
The couple even appeared to have matching looks, with Zayn also wearing a black top and faded grey Van Winkle in Lock n Load jeans from Ksubi. They also wore similar black shoes as they left the club.

The pair looked tired as they exited the West Hollywood venue around 2.30am on Sunday morning.
Joe and Gigi were also seen partying at the club on Tuesday and have been spotted together while out in Los Angeles over the last few weeks.
Bradford-born Zayn is enjoying some down time after famously quitting One Direction in March, and called off his engagement to girlfriend of four years Perrie in August.
He plans to launch a solo music career early next year that he says will better represent who he is as an artist.
Meanwhile, Gigi also reportedly split from former Disney star Joe after five months over their busy work schedules.
The model’s career has been going from strength to strength, and achieved a lifelong goal by walking the runway for the Victoria’s Secret show in New York on November 10.

Zayn Malik leaves One Direction tour due to stress (and cheating?)

Zayn Malik has left One Direction’s tour of Asia and has returned to the UK after being signed off with stress.

A statement said: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate.

“The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”

On Wednesday the singer declared his love for his fiancee, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, after photos emerged of him with his arm around another woman.

The picture, which has been widely shared and published online, shows Malik with his arm around the bare stomach of a woman in a cropped top.

A second photo, taken from behind, shows Malik standing close to the woman. Their hands and arms look like they’re linked.


Malik told his Twitter followers on Wednesday: “I’m 22 years old … I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous [people] in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.”

ONe Direction

Zayn Malik along with Louis Tomlinson had faced losing more than £3,000 each if they were caught using, or promoting, illegal drugs in Manila.

The pair were asked to post bonds of 200,000 pesos each for a special work permit, ahead of two concerts in the Philippine capital this weekend.

It’s after a video appeared last year of them both smoking what they called “a joint” in Peru.

Possession of a small amount of cannabis is not illegal there.


Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have to post ‘drug’ bond in Manila

One Direction stars Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson face losing more than £3,000 each if they are caught using, or promoting, illegal drugs in Manila.

The pair have been asked to post bonds of 200,000 pesos each for a special work permit, ahead of two concerts in the Philippine capital this weekend.

Local immigration said the bond was intended “to protect public interest”.

It follows a video leaked last May in which Malik and Tomlinson were shown allegedly smoking cannabis in Peru.

Elaine Tan, of the Philippine Bureau of Immigration, said the band would be prevented from performing if producers fail to post the cash bond before the concert.

The amount includes an additional processing fee of 20,000 pesos.

“The condition is intended to protect the public interest should the band members commit any violation during their stay in the Philippines,” said Tan.

It is understood a concert producer went to the Immigration Bureau on Thursday to post the bonds, said Christine Ching, a spokeswoman of Anti-Drugs Advocate.

One Direction
The band were named the most successful UK act in the world for the third year in a row last December.

The group has also called on the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to send officers to monitor the band.

“We want to see their pure, raw, untainted talent,” said Ching, adding that there was concern about the popular band’s influence on Filipino youth.

She said the group had met with concert producers, and they had agreed to allow government drug agencies and advocate groups to monitor band members.

One Direction are due to play at the seaside Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on 21 and 22 March.

After the leak emerged last year, One Direction’s Liam Payne – who was not seen in the video – tweeted an apology, saying “I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways. I apologise for that.”

“We are only in our 20s and we all do stupid things at this age,” Payne wrote.


Zayn Malik – Life before the X Factor and One Direction

This is pretty cool – see Zayn as a baby, growing up.   What was he like before the X Factor and One Direction changed his life?

zayn-malik-tattooZayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have added some more ink to One Direction’s growing collection of tattoos! The guys stopped by a tattoo parlor while the band was in Australia for the ARIA Awards last week, and they got dramatic new designs from their trip.


Zayn added an intricately designed piece to his hand and wrist while Louis got a dramatic knife tattooed onto his forearm and a cute, little smiley face on his wrist. The guys even spent some time hanging out with the artists in the shop, and it looks like they had a ton of fun with their tattoo adventure.



Zayn Malik and Harry setting new hair style trend?

Zayn Malik’s hair is so long that he needs a hair band to keep it out of his face!

Remember when Zayn Malik gelled his hair back for the 2014 American Music Awards but one single strand rebelled and fell back in front of his eyes ever-so-perfectly? Of course you do, as the image is probably forever seared into your minds.

Well, now the One Direction singer knows exactly how obsessed we all were with his dapper ‘do, because during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the band got to see the best fan Twitter reactions to Zayn’s red carpet style. As we were all freaking out over his hot new look, he was left to answer the big questions like: Was it planned? How do we score the look ourselves? And how can we continue on with our days now that we have seen this hairstyle?

With more than 20 years of experience in the hair care industry, London-based stylist Andrew Jose shares his top tips for men who want to grow their hair, Harry Styles style.

1. Create texture
‘Texture is key for this style so add definition into hair with a little wax applied with finger tips to the ends to take away any frizz,’ Andrew said. ‘The Lee Stafford Messed Up Putty (£5.99) is great as it is light yet adds a little weight to the ends of hair to stop any flyaways.’

2. Condition, condition, condition
‘Healthy well-groomed hair takes a little more maintenance than a short style so quality hair care is essential. Keep it clean and conditioned with Salon Science Swiss Apple Celluluxe Shampoo (£15) and conditioner (£17).’
The apple stem cells are added to support the cells in the hair follicle itself, which helps the hair to become stronger as it grows, Andrew explained.

3. Always exfoliate
‘Don’t neglect your scalp,’ said Andrew, ‘Always ensure that an exfoliator is factored in to your hair care regime to avoid any dandruff or flakes. The Salon Science Hydrafoliant Scalp Scrub (£15) is a pre-shampoo scalp treatment.
The product contains exfoliants, Andrew said, that remove old skin cells so that the scalp itself appears smoother and clearer.
