Sometimes there's no going back.
In a revealing interview with Billboard Magazine, Zayn Malik opened up about his relationship with One Direction, his taste in women, and his complicated music career. Of course we were ALL ears for the candid confessional!

Speaking on his former bandmates, Malik admitted things aren't so great despite vowing to remain best friends when he left the group in March of 2015.
The singer explained:
"The truth of it is. You can think one thing about a situation and the total opposite can happen. I had every intention of remaining friends with everybody, but I guess certain phone numbers have changed and I haven't received calls from a lot of people. I've reached out to a few of them and not got a reply. Certain people have pride issues, but it's stuff you overcome in time."
Yikes! Maybe the iciness has to do with Z.M. kind of trashing the band's music and Louis Tomlinson's feud with Naughty Boy!
Elaborating on his differences in music with the boys, the 22-year-old confessed:
"I genuinely enjoyed the band and did whatever I could to be myself within that, but it's just not where I sit as a musician. The other boys' taste was generally indie rock. It's good music, but I don't f— with it. That was never cool where I was from."
Hmm…it sounds like this group was always destined to breakup! We can't wait to hear the stylistic differences i
While Malik's career remains uncertain, what's for certain is his taste in gorgeous and opinionated women AKA Gigi Hadid:
"I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas — the nice areas. I like a fuller woman. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they're wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion."
Yup, sounds like Gigi! No wonder things are getting quite serious between these two!
Despite all the recent drama in his life, the former boy bander has a positive outlook:
"I'm incredibly disciplined. I realized I can push myself through situations I might not necessarily want to do, but can overcome by being in the moment. No matter what, I can smile and do whatever I got to do."
Well, we're definitely interested to see how Zayn's future works out!
