Zayn Malik's Sad Reason For Splitting With Perrie Edwards
This one's got to hurt.
We really feel for Perrie Edwards right now. Her ex-fiance, Zayn Malik, has spoke out about their break-up to Complex magazine.
He broke up with Edwards shortly after splitting with his former boy band, One Direction, to work on new music.
And now he's spoken about the inspiration for the album, some of which was influenced by his break-up with his ex-fiance.
"There's a good ratio of both. There's a lot of falling in love and a lot of falling out of love. It's probably 60/40, falling out of love.
"I feel like you get creative with things when you can be honest. Whether that's positive or negative, it can work both ways.
"If you're in a really good place, you can write a really good, upbeat song. When you're in a s--t place you can write a downbeat f---ing ballad!
"That's just the way it is. But I feel like you can draw good creative things from both."
His new album, Mind of Mine, is his first solo album and is out this Friday.
He's now dating supermodel Gigi Hadid and tries to keep his high-profile relationship out of the public eye as much as he can.
"I try to keep the two very separate. I try to, as much as I can. But there's only so much you can do.
"I'm learning to deal with it. It's just one of those things now, in the background. I just leave it as a bit of a noise in the background."
