Zayn Malik has a message for all of his, um, haters.
The singer and former One Direction boy bander took to Twitter over the weekend to remind everyone that he’s here to stay.
According to Daily Mail, The “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” singer has only sporadically appeared on stage, thanks to his struggle with anxiety. And I guess somebody told him that because of said struggle, he should just quit music all together. But even I, a humble gossip writer, know that’s not exactly how things work.
After hearing the criticism, the 24-year-old took to Twitter, saying "I recall someone saying to me a while back music wasn't my thing and maybe I should try something else."

I guess we're all good at doing things we shouldn't ... 😂👍🏽— zayn (@zaynmalik) February 5, 2017
"I guess we're all good at doing things we shouldn't," he continued, with some festive emojis.
I oscillate between being like, “Hey why is this guy a thing,” and, “This guy is mad talented, but I know way too much about his personal life considering I have never listened to any of his music.” Regardless, anxiety is real. And illness should never get in the way of you pursuing your dreams. Anyone who says otherwise is ignorant AF, bye.
Check out Zayn’s acoustic version of “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” below. I will begrudgingly admit that it is pretty good. I mean, I can barely understand what he's saying, but it's still pretty good.
