NABILYou’d think that as a former member of one of the biggest groups in the world, Zayn Malik wouldn’t be starstruck by anyone or anything. But it turns out that there’s at least one celebrity who can make him feel uncomfortable: Taylor Swift.
Speaking to Dazed magazine, Zayn says, “I don’t tend to go out much. I stick to my own bubble, as it is. Creatively and socially, I think, as I’m getting older, that’s just the way I am.” As a result, he adds, “I don’t get much feedback from my peers [but] I spoke a bit to Taylor.”
Now, Zayn’s girlfriend Gigi Hadid is a member of Taylor’s squad, of course, but Zayn’s former band mate Harry Styles also used to date her, as you might recall.
Anyway, Zayn continues, “At Gigi’s house, we briefly spoke and she told me she really enjoyed the album. It was nice to get some feedback. She said she thought I was cool and I kind of blushed a bit and didn’t know how to take it.”
So obviously, all that time in One Direction hasn’t given Zayn a huge ego, and he says he likes it that way.
“I think that’s the best way to keep your sanity,” he says. “You’ve got to hold on to what you are and not let things get to your head, because if you do, that’s when everything comes crashing down terribly.”
Dazed also reports that Zayn is already writing songs for his second album, the follow-up to his #1 solo debut, Mind of Mine.
