Zayn Malik has opened up to “Dazed” that Taylor Swift is a fan of his solo album, “Mind of Mine.”
“I don’t get much feedback from my peers. I spoke a bit to Taylor,” he said. “At Gigi’s house we briefly spoke, and she told me she really enjoyed the album”.
“It was nice to get some feedback. She said she thought I was cool and I kind of blushed a bit and didn’t know how to take it.”
Bless him. He also revealed that he’s not a fan of going out and getting wasted and hanging out with famous people: “I don’t tend to go out much. I stick to my own bubble, as it is. Creatively and socially, I think, as I’m getting older, that’s just the way I am.”
“…I’m just staying the way that I am. I think that’s the best way to keep your sanity.”
“You’ve got to hold on to what you are and not let things get to your head, because if you do, that’s when everything comes crashing down terribly.”
Wise words Zayn.
In the interview, he also discussed the sad passing of Prince this year: “A lot of starting references for me are technology and Prince. I’m conscious in the back of my head, of how he was sort of bold and fearless in the way he decided to dress. He created another world with the clothes he wore, and it gave him an otherworldly feel, which is all part of his legend, I guess. I was really upset with the fact that he passed away. But it’s nice that we can use things now to portray what inspired us about him. That was kind of what I was doing at the Met Gala Ball… being fearless. But I was just having fun.”
