Yes, we're still processing what happened on Twitter today.
Here's the rundown of Zayn's tweets.
After tweeting, "These streets will make you feel brand new" earlier in the day, he returned to Twitter to write: "I guess I never explained why I left , it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!"
He followed that up with a pic of himself signing the deal (congrats!) and a tweet with the hashtag #REALME.
Did we never know the real Zayn? What was all that stuff about leaving the band to be a "normal 22-year-old" then?
So many thoughts are racing through our heads right now...
Zayn did retweet this assessment, so we have to believe that's what he means by 'real.'
You are stupid. Real music meaning real to him. Real because he has written and recorded it solely to what he likes.Real to himself like lol— cerise (@zaynhealy) July 29, 2015
