Apparently, Liam thinks Zayn never actually liked any of the music they were putting out there!
His exact words:
"One Direction was never really Zayn's kind of bag, if you know what I mean. Like, his taste in music was a bit different. I guess that's kind of what drove him to do what he did in the end, which was not necessarily a bad thing. Everyone's come out fine from it, thanks to our beautiful fans. And, you know, he's off doing what he loves as well, so both parties are winners in the end of a disaster of a situation. It's all good."
