Zayn Malik, talented singer for the sensational UK boyband One Direction is a force to be reckoned with in the highly competitive music world.  When I want facts about Zayn Malik I don't turn to the often vicious tabloid offerings usually meant to incite gossip and degrade celebrities. 

Fame and a huge following of adoring worldwide fans are sometimes too much to handle, especially if you aren't used to being in the spotlight.  Its got to be doubly tough if you are a young man just coming into your own as both an adult and a world-renowned  performer as Zayn is.

Facts About Zayn MalikCredit: WikipediaZayn isn't used to such widespread adoration, so much so that he recently deleted his twitter account after some vicious criticism from racist internet trolls.  While some gossip mongers claim he left twitter over cheating scandals, he actually briefly left after being labeled a terrorist which I think is beyond ludicrous!  Just because he is young and Muslim doesn't mean he is anything other than young and Muslim, something he is very proud of. 

Zayn is so talented, besides being a hunk, and band mate Liam Payne is keeping an eye out for him though and helping him handle the tough road a bonafide celebrity has to walk.  so when you want facts about Zayn Malik, don't turn to twitter either.

Capricorn Zayn Malik's original birth name was Zain, but he changed it to Zayn which means "beautiful" in Arabic, and I think it's a perfect fit as he has a beautiful soul.  He loves to draw, he can't swim and he used to chase monsters from the bedroom of his younger sister.  Like every Muslim he doesn't eat pork. 

His favorite scent is vanilla and he prefers girls with a natural look as opposed to lots of makeup.  He auditioned for The X Factor as a solo artist in 2010 but failed to make the cut.  That was a stroke of good luck for him as Simon Cowell added him to a band he'd created with other X Factor contestants and the group One Direction was formed. 

They went on the make music history in 2012 by securing the #1 spot on US Billboard charts with their album "Up All Night"-the first time ever for a UK band.  There are more personal facts about Zayn Malik too.

This is Zayn Malik singing Let Me Love You without music

After briefly dating others in the music world (Rebecca Ferguson and Geneva Lane), his romantic life seems firmly entrenched now with singer Perrie Edwards from the band Little Mix.  They've been dating since late 2011 and recently met each others families.  Zayn admits to being a little intimidated over meeting Perrie's older brother  who he wanted to impress as a good boyfriend and not as a music superstar and Zayn describes him after their meeting as "cool."  Perrie spent the Eid holiday with Zayn's family, which I think is a great introduction to his upbringing, lifestyle and culture.  Perrie isn't jealous over the adoration Zayn gets from female fans either which shows me a good deal of maturity on her part.

They began an on-and-off again relationship after briefly meeting on the X Factor in 2011, but like any up and coming musicians their relationship was put on a back burner while they focused on their careers.  By May 2012 however, their feelings for each other were made crystal clear.  Lets face it though-Zayn is young, talented and good-looking as is Perrie.  There are bound to be rumors made up about their relationship.  I just brush them off as lies and innuendos.  They're young and seem to be in love and like each of us they are only human.
