Zayn Malik, SFS, Sydney 7 February 2015
I woke at 4 this morning and saw the news on Twitter. Should I wake Miss Bliss and tell her, I pondered for half a nanosecond. She's not good when she is tired so I figured it was better to let her sleep and then she could process the news at her normal waking time. It wasn't particularly pretty.
Poor Zayn, he wants to be a normal 22 year old. Not sure how he achieves that after almost five years with one of the most popular boy bands ever, but good luck to him.
As you experience life you realise that sometimes it takes more guts to leave than it does to stay in a situation that is not working for you.
Miss Bliss and I saw 1D at the first concert of their One The Road Again tour, in Sydney on 7 February. It was fabulous and we loved them and Zayn was his shy retiring self. Few of us have to live with millions of people following our every move. He always seemed the most uncomfortable with the fame and attention.
Let's hope people give him space to be that normal 22 year old.
