These poor guys!
The members of One Direction haven't given an official interview following Zayn Malik's exit until now. Speaking with The Sun, the remaining members talked about how they really felt about their mate taking off. Liam Payne said:
"It's been a tough few weeks, probably the toughest since the band was formed five years ago. We're gutted that Zayn chose to leave, but now after a few performances as a four-piece, we're feeling confident and are determined to carry on stronger than ever."

But not to worry, Directioners, Harry Styles followed that up by adding:
"It's very exciting to be working on our fifth album. It shows how incredible the fans have been. A huge thank you to them for everything they've done for us. All the love to them."
And if you're concerned about anyone else leaving the group, Louis Tomlinson assured everyone, stating:
"All four of us are 100 percent committed to staying in 1D."
PHEW! We're relieved to hear that!
Meanwhile, Zayn is vacationing in the South of France with fiancee Perrie Edwards, and is rumored to still be working on a solo album.
