Um OK. Zayn Malik’s latest confession on why he left One Direction has us all going, “Wait, WHAT?”
The former member of the singing sensation boy band revealed that he quit the group that made him famous because an alien told him to.
Glamour Magazine unearthed the out-there reason for going solo during a recent interview.
They asked him when the first time was that he realised he wanted to split from the band and do his own thing, musically speaking.
Get all the goss on Zayn's zany Glamour revelation in the video below. Post continues.
Yep. Aliens told him to do it.
“An alien spoke to me in a dream,” the 23-year-old musician told the publication.
Unfortunately for us all, he neglected to expand on it any further than that.
No word yet on what Zayn's girlfriend Gigi Hadid has to say on the matter.
He also revealed that his first celebrity crush - or crushes rather - was “Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen."
“They’re the same, right?” he jokingly said.
The former boy band member also confessed his biggest mistake to date: “wearing pastel colours."
Zayn's first celeb crush was the Olsen twins.
The singer announced in March 2015 that he planned to go solo and leave his bandmates Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
He’d been with the group for five years at that point.
Check out Zayn's girlfriend Gigi gushing over his skills since he went solo in the clip below. Post continues.
At the time, Zayn said he left because he wanted to be a normal 22-year-old... or is that what the alien TOLD him to say?
“I’d like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart,” he explained at the time.
“I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."
Or, you know, because an alien told him to.
