I want to thank god for allowing me to be able to do what my dreams were. i’d like to thank my mum and dad for making me asian and allowing me to have some sort of an effect on the asian community, it’s a massive honour.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 and i thank you for that. and, yeah, here’s to the future. thank you very much for everything tonight. -Zayn Malik
I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.
