One Direction Talks About Zayn Malik Leaving the Band

One Direction Opens Up About Zayn Malik's Departure: "We Were Angry"

The four remaining members of One Direction sat down for a candid interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Thursday. James asked Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne about how they've been doing since former member Zayn Malik decided to quit the band in March, and they revealed it's been a bit of an adjustment. "At first, we were a little bit angry, obviously. We were surprised," Liam admitted. "But we all kind of knew the general vibe that Zayn was feeling. You could sort of tell. There was certain parts of the job that Zayn loved and certain parts that he didn't. If you don't like your job, you have to follow your heart sometimes and go where you need to go. There's no arguing with that. Like I said, we were angry at first but then it was just more disappointed. But we wish him the best of luck with whatever he gets up to." Louis also addressed the buzzed-about Twitter feud he had with Zayn and music producer Naughty Boy earlier this month.
