WHY I LIKE ZAYN MALIK
Here’s the story of when I started to like Zayn and why I like him
It was around 2011(forgot the month) when I first heard about One Direction. So one time I came across the music video for WMYB and I thought to myself, “oh so these are the boys everyone’s been talking about”. The guy with black hair with a Bollywood look is the one who immediately caught my attention. I was intrigued. Apparently his name is Zayn. I didn’t know back then so I had to google their names and bios. My sister was actually the one who told me that they’re from x-factor and placed third. So what I did was I watched their journey on x-factor, on how they were made into a group. I watched their performances and video diaries. And that is the moment I fell in love with One Direction. The moment I fell in love with Zayn. So as a fan, I downloaded their first album Up All Night, listened to it and loved it. Watched their live and acoustic performances. I got really invested. But I always knew that Zayn Malik was the only one I cared about. He’s the only one I’m focused on. Every time they release a new album, I’m excited to hear Zayn’s parts. Every time they do an interview, I always go and look at Zayn. I just want to hear him talk. Every time they sing live, Zayn was always the one I’ve been praising. For me he’s the best singer of the group. And he got better looking every year like JFC he’s the most attractive guy I have ever seen. But do you wanna know why I fell in love with Zayn Malik?
Yes he’s freaking gorgeous. Yes he’s a goddamn good singer. Oh boy those high notes!! Take me to heaven! But why is he the one that caught my attention? It’s because he’s different. He’s very shy but at the same time he’s very sweet. He was always the quiet one but when he talks, he’s so smart. You can really feel what he’s saying. He’s genuine. He loves his family so much. He’s a family man! How beautiful! He’s also very funny but we don’t get to see that much side of him because the focus is on the other boys. Zayn was under appreciated by the fans. I truly believe that. He gets the most hate. Unfair treatment. I don’t know why. As years go by, my support for him got stronger and stronger. I felt the need the protect him from all the hate. I think that’s what the fans do. Support and protect our favorite. And this year 2015 he left the band in the middle of the tour. The next leg was in the Philippines and he just had to leave the band. What a bummer right that I didn’t get to see him. He’s the only reason why I bought the ticket. I’ve been waiting to see and hear him live but it didn’t happen. I was really heartbroken. I still enjoyed the concert but boy it was hard to hold back the tears. The fans were mad at him! Like really mad! I was crying for 2 straight days because of the fear that I won’t get to see him or hear him again sing. And that he won’t be with the boys anymore which is really sad. But you know what I did? I stopped crying. I accepted it. I heard what he has to say. He wasn’t enjoying it anymore. I understand that completely. He wants to go to a different path. I completely understand. You know what, I stood by him. I never left him. And also this is what I wanted for him from the start. Solo. I mean I loved the boys and I’ll cherish the memories of being a directioner but my heart is really for Zayn. It really pains me to see all the hate he’s been getting lately. WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. He can’t win. Why can’t we just be happy for him? He’s doing what he wants now. He is finally happy. Let’s just all be happy for him. If you don’t like him, then fine ignore him. Don’t send him hate because you don’t know him personally. You don’t judge a book by its cover. And don’t believe everything the media says. It’s really painful for us fans (Zquad) to see him get hate for being free and open. But I know he’ll get through this. The zquad will get through this. I will support Zayn with every decision he makes. I will support his music 100%. I will stay by his side for as long as it takes. I will never leave him. I will never hate him. Because that’s what a real fan should be doing. I genuinely believe he’s a good guy. He’s just misunderstood. I know he will successful and I couldn’t be more proud of him. I’m really really proud of Zayn. I am happy for him and I love him. Til the end, Zayn.
