Zayn Malik not only showed off his new buzz cut at the Asian awards, but he also thanked his former One Direction bandmates. Malik who quit One Direction last month was honored with the Outstanding Achievement in Music awards.
He told the crowd, “I’d like to thank my mum and dad for making me Asian. I’d also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys that I ever met whilst being in the band and doing all the amazing things that I did. Some of the things that we did will stay with me for the rest of my life. Here’s to the future.”
One Direction was formed in 2010 by Simon Cowell when the five boys auditioned for The X Factor separately but they were later formed into a group, much like Fifth Harmony! Some might still be upset that Zayn ditched the group mid-tour to go solo.
