After long speculation, Zayn has finally come out to say that his decision to leave One Direction was because he had reached his maximum capacity as an artist.
While talking to Elle UK, he said “At that time in my life I felt I had done everything I could do there and I just needed to change it up. It didn't feel brave. My entire life has changed in the last year. I'm still taking it all in. I've found so much out about myself. Mostly how in love with music I still was. The album is a build up of six years and never being able to express what I wanted to say. I had something to get off my chest.”
Zayn also mentioned that since leaving the band, he has been able to develop his own style, and can wear whatever he wants.
And finally, he spoke about possibly wanting to get into acting, because he couldn't when he was in the band.
What do you think about Zayn possibly becoming an actor?
