Zayn Malik Says His Friendship With Louis Tomlinson Has Changed: 'We Were a Lot Closer'

Zayn Malik Says His Friendship With Louis Tomlinson Has Changed: 'We Were a Lot Closer'

Louis Tomlinson gave an interview in August opening up about rekindling his frayed friendship with Zayn Malik after he left the band.

Now, Zayn is taking the opportunity to do the same.

“We’re in touch, everything is on a civil level,” the “Dusk Till Dawn” singer told Us Weekly of his relationship with his former band-mate.

“It’s not the way it used to be, obviously we were a lot closer because we were together the entire time, spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re not, so we’re living our own lives, we’re all growing as individual men and we still keep in touch and check in with each other not as much as we used to.”

While that might disappoint some One Direction fans, it’s totally normal that they would be closer when working together every day than in the years afterwards.

We appreciate Zayn‘s candor.

“I’ve heard too many songs that describe situations that I just can’t relate to, that just seem to be so Hollywood almost, so almost unrealistic,” Louis told MTV in a video interview. “So I just wanted to make something that was more grounded and honest and real.”


The “Back to You” singer also has high standards for his solo music.

“If I’m being honest, I feel like I’ve got a little bit of a point to prove,” Louis continued of finally going down the solo route.

“I’ve had conversations with people close to me, and it became a a bit of a no brainer really. Any kind of decisions for not wanting to go down this route didn’t really make sense. It was just about biting the bullet and doing it…I owe it to myself.”

Louis Tomlinson Recalls His First VMAs With One Direction

Louis Tomlinson and One Direction definitely didn’t feel like they fit in at their first VMAs!

The group first attended the show in the early 2010s, back when they were a brand new band.

“I remember the first time we went to the VMAs…and like Rihanna is sat two rows in front and Drake,” Louis explained to MTV News.

He continued, “We were feeling out of our depth and I just looked over and me and Niall are just, like, scarfing eating this hot dog proper messy, thinking, like, ‘We shouldn’t really be here.’”

But even though they weren’t quite award show pros yet, Louis added, “I have loads of really nice memories from that.”

Louis Tomlinson Got Help From Simon Cowell During a Pretty Scary Moment

Aww, we love how much of a father figure Simon Cowell has become to the One Direction guys!

The reality TV judge and producer recently shared a story about a time Louis Tomlinson‘s nerves got the best of him before a show.

“When somebody goes a little bit crazy, my way of dealing with things is to deal with it straight away, face-to-face,” Simon told Billboard about the incident. “I sat him down and went, ‘Look, we’ve all been there, I’ve been there. You’re in a fantastic place right now.’ … And then we laughed it off, he sent me a very nice text afterwards and from that moment we had this incredible bond.”

Simon also revealed that he told Louis – the last of the guys to launch his solo career – not to feel too much pressure and to “always be true to yourself with the music.”

Louis and I, you know, we’ve got this very close bond,” Simon elaborated. “When we heard about this current record, I remember calling him and going, ‘Louis, this record is special’ – and I could not be happier.”

“Actually, with all the boys, if I’m being honest with you,” Simon added. “They’ve worked for this. But yeah, you do feel a little bit like a proud dad when you see all five of them doing well now.”

Simon put Louis, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik together in a group after they all auditioned individually for The X Factor UK in 2010.

The day the world was changed forever.

Louis Tomlinson Reveals His Solo Album Is Very 'Conversational' & 'Honest'

Louis Tomlinson is spilling more and more secrets from his forthcoming solo album and we are living for it.

During rehearsals for the Teen Choice Awards, where he performed “Back To You” with Bebe Rexha, Louis opened up to Billboard about having really honest songs on the track list.

“The album in general is just very honest and conversational,” he says. “In the early sessions I’ve had, a lot of songwriters love to write about fairytales and situations that just don’t really feel like the bands that I grew up listening to. They speak very matter-of-fact and honest, and I think that’s cool and that’s interesting.”

Louis adds, “Although the fans know loads about me, they’ll definitely learn a bit more after the album.”

He also shared that working on a solo album has helped him become more confident in his skills.

“I just feel like I’m getting stronger and more confident with each single,” Louis adds. “I’m definitely still learning as a songwriter and an artist on my own as well.”
