Onward and upward, Zayn Malik!
The 22-year-old may have left One Direction, but he will always have the legacy as being one of the most introspective and sensitive pop stars of our generation!
Although his departure may have come as a shock to many, the singer was very vocal on his Twitter account about living life to the fullest and never compromising one's values.
In one particular tweet on October 27, 2011, the East Bowling-native discussed how one should always stay true to oneself, no matter what!
