Would Zayn Malik quit One Direction if he didn't have the 1D guys' support?
In an interview with The Sunday Life (via Sugarscape.com), Zayn said, "The best thing about being in the band is the other four lads. I've got four very good mates and that's cool. We all keep each other down to earth and there's defo no way I could have done this as a solo artist."
He added, "I would have cracked and given it all up and gone home by now. The lads keep me grounded and it's good to know you're not the only person going through everything. We're sharing every experience."
Aww, the 1D guys really are besties.
We should thank them all for supporting each other...it's got to have been (and continue to be) a crazy surreal ride as superstars.
