Zayn Malik Invites Fans to ‘Judge Me on My Own Terms’ in New Self-Titled Autobiography

Posted on

Zayn Malik was only a teenager when One Direction skyrocketed to fame, and now, six years later, he’s reflecting on an unexpected life as one of music’s biggest stars.

Malik’s upcoming eponymous autobiography will encompass his journey from The X Factor to “Pillowtalk.”

“When I was still in One Direction, fans would write stories based on me and the other lads and publish them online,” Malik writes in an excerpt from Zayn on Wattpad. “It’s crazy to think that we inspired so many different stories and the opportunity for so much creativity from so many people all over the world.”

Of opening up in such a personal way, Malik says, “I’m going to show you as much as I can so that you can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says.”
