I have chosen to compare Zayn Malik to Camila Cabello. Camila is 17 years old and is Mexican and Cuban. She is part of the girl group, Fifth Harmony who rose to fame from The X Factor, like One Direction. Fifth Harmony and One Direction were both mentored by Simon Cowell, who put both groups together. After seeing so much success in One Direction, Simon Cowell decided to bring a girl group into the music business. Zayn and Camila were both eliminated from The X Factor, but later brought back to be put in groups with four other people. Fifth Harmony followed One Direction's steps, bringing back girl groups and boy bands with a modern twist.
Zayn Javaad Malik
Zayn Malik was born on January 12, 1993 in Bradford, England. He had an early love of singing and performing, and at the age of 17, he auditioned on the singing competition
The X Factor
. He was teamed up with four other contestants, forming the boy band
. From there, Zayn's life was turned upside down.
In 2010, 17 year old Zayn Malik auditioned for The X Factor, in hopes of getting the recognition he deserved. Zayn was accepted into the next round of the competition, but was eliminated before the final round. He was called back by the judges and put into a group with Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne. One Direction went down in history as one of the biggest boy bands ever.
Zayn and I share the same religion, we are both Muslims. Zayn is of English and Pakistani descent. Though there is much controversy surrounding Islam, he has still chosen to represent his religion proudly. Zayn's father, Yaser Malik, is English and Pakistani. When Yaser met Zayn's mom, Patricia, she converted to Islam. Zayn and his three sisters are also muslims. Zayn however, he was raised to be his own person and have his own beliefs. This is also how I was raised, to believe in what I believe in, so we are alike in that way.
Zayn Malik was born on January 12, 1993 as Zain Javaad Malik. He was born and raised in a town located in the county of West Yorkshire in Northern England called Bradford. His father, Yaser Malik is English-Pakistani and his mother, Patricia Malik is English. Zayn has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyah and Safaa. Zayn attended Lower Fields Primary School and Tong High School both located in Bradford. He later decided to switch schools, because he was being criticized for his religious beliefs. Zayn then moved to a different school, and was no longer tormented for being muslim. As a teenager, Zayn took courses in performing arts and participated in school productions.
1. In the past, you've been judged and criticized for your beliefs. How do you ignore this judgement and move past it?
There are always going to be people full of spite and hatred, and they will say anything to try and bring me down. It gets hard to ignore things that are said to me so often, but I've learned to not let them affect me. If I give in to those hurtful words, then those people win. I will never let that happen, they will never win. I always remind myself that judgement and hate comes along with this job, but I am too blessed to focus on the negative.
2. With all the success you've had, comes a lot of tough times. Do you regret any decisions you made about your career?
No, I don't regret anything. I am very grateful to be where I am today, because this was always my dream. I could never regret my dream, this is all I've ever wanted. I put in so much hard work into getting here, and now that I finally have it, I won't let it go. I know there are so many people who are working to get to where I am, and I hope I inspire them not to give up. Yes, there are a lot of tough times, but that's life and I have to deal with it. The most successful and happy people never gave up, so I won't either.
3. With paparazzi and critics, there is a lot of bad that comes along with fame. Have you ever thought about letting it all go and moving back to Bradford?
There definitely have been days where I thought about going home. This business is pretty hard, it is non stop and I can hardly see my family. I would like to one day take a break, not forever, maybe just a year. I would like to take a break and get away from it all. At the end of the day, I have to remember that there is bad in all good, and I shouldn't give up for things such as paparazzi. It's hard, not having privacy, but it's worth it because I'm living my dream. Always remember to focus on the positive, because the negative can be conquered.
4. How do you feel when people say you changed their lives just through a song or something you said?
That's something I'll never get used to hearing. It blows me away when people say I've changed their lives or even saved their lives. That is what I have always wanted, to move people with my music. I have always wanted people to listen to my music and feel something. When people say I've changed their lives, even by something small, it inspires me to keep going. Those people, my fans, are the reason I keep going. They keep me strong and I keep them strong, and I love that connection. Social Media has allowed me to create a bond with my fans that people couldn't do back in the day. I am so honored that people listen to my music or hear something I say, and use it to change their lives. It's truly amazing.
5. Who were some of your inspirations as a child? Would you say they are a part of the reason you're here today?
One of my biggest inspirations as a kid was Michael Jackson. He put out amazing, original music and he will always be my idol. He went through a lot and he still came out on top every single time. Michael is a legend, and I want to be remembered like he is. I want to make a difference on the world, and change music forever. To this day, I look up to Michael and strive to be as successful as him. Some other people who inspired me were my family. They always taught me to follow my dreams and never give up. They raised me to be the person I am today and I still go to them to get advice when I need their help. I would say these people are part of the reason I am here today, because without them I wouldn't have the courage to pursue my dreams.
6. You have so many amazing qualities of your own, do you think you'll ever branch out and become a solo artist?
I think I am happy where I am, for now. This journey has been crazy, and I wouldn't have been able to get here without the guys. This band has always been there for me, and I'm happy I am able to share my experiences with such amazing people. I don't think me or anyone from the band would be better off as a solo artist, because we complete each other. Being a solo artist is tough, so having four other people understand exactly how you feel makes everything easier. I don't know what the future holds, but right now, I am having fun living in the moment.
