Men shouldn’t be afraid to express their emotions.

The above quote comes from a newly recovered Zayn Malik.

Around a year ago the ex One Direction singer decided to take time away from the stage when crippling anxiety prevented him from performing.

“I now have no problem with anxiety. It was something I was dealing with in the band.”




The singer also confesses to having developed a bad eating disorder while at the height of 1D’s fame.

“It was a control thing. Every area of my life was so regimented and controlled it was the one area where I could say, ‘No, I’m not eating that.’

“Once I got over the control, the eating just came back into place, super naturally.”

“I came back to the UK and spent some time with my mum and got some TLC, and she cooked me food and I got back in touch, mentally, with a lot of the things I’d lost.”


Even famous singers need the support of moms sometimes. Kudos to you Zayn, for taking care of yourself!
