Speaking to The Sunday Times, Malik said, “I think I’m pretty black and white about what it’s about. Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.”

During the interview Malik also revealed he’s had an email from one of his former bandmates but wouldn't say which member sent it. ”I got an email," he said. "I don't even wanna say names. I have no beef.”

When asked if he might ever consider rejoining the group some time in the future Malik gave an uncertain "Who knows?” "I don't know. If the time was right and that was the thing to do, then I would make that decision when it came around,” he added.

The 23-year-old also shared his hopes of continuing his education after leaving school halfway through sixth form to join the boyband. "You know what, to educate yourself isn't that hard these days. You can do it at home,” he said. “You can go to lectures - just sit there, which hopefully, at some point, I can do - like, just sit and listen to a lecture.”

Malik added that going back to his studies would be "something that is only, solely for me, you know what I mean? And when my kids ask me, in the future, and I try to tell them to go to school, they can't turn around and say to me, 'F--- off, Dad, you were in a band!' I can turn around and say, 'Excuse me, I went back to school and got my degree. So you definitely have to do your schoolwork!”' he added.
