British music superstar Zayn Malik has been in the music industry for many years now, becoming a global superstar thanks to the huge success of his former boyband One Direction. Fans around the world would go crazy for the One Direction boys and Zayn has admitted that is was very odd to read some of the fan fiction that these fans would send to them.
Malik explained, "When I was still in One Direction, fans would write stories based on me and the other lads and publish them online. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty unnerving reading things about yourself as a character from somebody else's imagination. It's crazy to think that we inspired so many different stories and the opportunity for so much creativity from so many people all over the world.''
While Zayn Malik is clearly not the biggest fan of the sort of fan fiction that was being written about him by the One Direction fans, it does seem that there is something that he does much prefer. Fans would also share some of their fan art with the boys and Zayn has admitted that some of it was actually very good indeed.
He added, "My favourite stuff, personally, is fan art. I love seeing how many different ways people interpret my lyrics and my style, and it's so cool that they share that with me. It's also weirdly touching to see how many talented people out there choose to apply that talent to something connected with me and my music. It's really humbling."
Zayn Malik is now a solo artist but we are sure there will be one big One Direction reunion in the future,
