1. Towards the end of One Direction, Zayn had an eating disorder
In his new self-titled book, the singer and former One Direction member shares some details about his life since leaving the boy band and why his anxiety has lead to the cancellation of many of his past performances. I know I have fans out there who have been through this kind of thing, too, and I wanted to be honest for their sake, if nothing else. The year-old also explains that he dealt with anxiety even while performing with One Direction, though it was performing as a solo artist that left him feeling much more vulnerable. He goes on to explain his frustration following the speculation he faced after his decision to come forward. I found it really frustrating that, even now that I was being upfront about what the issue was, some people still found reasons to doubt it. Zayn is now available for pre-order and will be released on Nov. Read the entire excerpt from his book over at Time.
