Zayn Malik, one of the five members of British boy band One Direction, seems to have a pretty sweet life. His band’s debut album broke records, their second album is scheduled to be released later this year, his hair defies gravity, and he’s dating the adorable Perrie Edwards of ultra-hot girl group Litte Mix.
Nineteen-year old Zayn has a reputation for being a ladies’ man, with incessant rumors of his alleged indiscretions swirling around cyberspace. I think we should give the poor kid a break. He should seize the moment, live like he’s young (sorry … couldn’t resist), and enjoy his success now, because it’s unlikely to last long.
Most performers wear stage makeup … it’s practically mandatory. And given the youth of the One Direction boys, they probably still have horrible skin. That’s why it’s nice to see that Zayn Malik without makeup looks like a regular guy.
In the first photo of Zayn with a bare face, he looks very handsome. His complexion looks clear, his eyes are gorgeous, and the stubble is a reminder that he is actually a man, despite the super-gay music. His hair is ridiculous though … grow it or cut it, but right now it’s nonsense.
The One Direction singer looks young and tired in the next photo, with a dickish swagger that I don’t think he’s earned yet. He basically looks like an average guy, though in reality he probably just hung out with the equally-masculine Justin Bieber and then nailed three or four groupies.
