Why is it that fans go absolutely mental when they discover their celebrity idol has had a haircut? We'll never know the answer, but the circumstances are true for Zayn Malik after he shaved off the whole lot! Well, if it's good enough for Vin Diesel...

Louis Tomlinson has revealed that he and Zayn Malik have dropped their feud, following his recent admission that his late mother’s dying wish was for him to patch things up with his former One Direction bandmate.

25 year old Tomlinson was interviewed by late night chat show host Andy Cohen in America, and he revealed that, in accordance with his late mother Johannah Deakin’s wishes, he and former bandmate Zayn had ended their rivalry.

“We got back in touch with each other and kind of cleared the air and talked everything through,” he said on Tuesday night (August 1st). “So we’re mates again, I suppose. Like anything like that, it takes time. But it was nice that we had an opportunity to clear the air and be adults about it, I suppose.”

Zayn Malik Says He's Still Battling Anxiety Issues


Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik has admitted that he is still facing an ongoing battle with anxiety and self-confidence problems, saying that he’s in the process of “working through certain issues”.

The 24 year old former One Direction star, who revealed his personal struggles in an upfront interview early last year when he cancelled a number of solo gigs, has said that most of those problems stem from how he wants to put himself across in public and how he thinks he’ll be perceived.

“I always feel like I'm trying to work through whatever certain issues are around certain subjects,” he said during a new video interview with Vogue. “For me personally, it comes from a place of not wanting to come across as an over-arrogant person that takes themselves too seriously.”

Zayn Malik Credits His Mother With Helping Him Beat Eating Disorder


Zayn Malik One Direction

Former One Direction star Zayn Malik has spoken once again about how he beat the eating disorder he suffered from during his time with the band, revealing that it was his mother who helped him get better.

The 24 year old singer first revealed details of the disorder, which meant he would sometimes go several days without eating while 1D was on tour, plus a struggle with anxiety, in his autobiography that was released at the end of last year.

“It was a control thing,” he told The Times this week. “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.”
