That Time An Alien Told Zayn Malik To Leave One Direction

"Straight Outta Compton" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

This is interesting—-Zayn Malik left his super successful band to go solo after he followed the advice from an alien. Yup, an alien! Malik was quizzed by Glamour about several of his firsts like his first tattoo and celeb crush—then Glamour asked—First time you realized you wanted to break off from 1D and go off on your own? to which Zayn replied— “An alien spoke to me in a dream…”

So he needed an alien to tell him that— I though he was unhappy for a long time in the group and wasn’t able to express himself musically. And I’m not being cynical—I actually believe in aliens and love the show, Ancient Aliens but I just don’t think they are among us right now.
