Zayn Malik is opening about his boy band past and overcoming anxiety. Which, no shade, but isn’t that all he ever talks about?
Chatting with the Sunday Times Style magazine, the 24-year-old noted he’s pretty much over being anxious now. “It was something I was dealing with in the band,” he said. (I imagine at this point, he started to pat himself on the back.)
He continued, “People saw strength in that, and they didn’t seem to expect it from a guy, but they expect it from a female, which to me is crazy.”
Boy, do I love it when men call women “females!” Oozing with respect, he is.
Anyway, I thought anxiety — much like depression, diabetes and a debilitating passion for sour candy — was more of a lifelong thing you learned to manage. But ol’ wizard Malik over here has apparently found the cure: Just quit your boy band gig!
Someone get this man a Nobel prize, please.
