In Zayn's interview with Fader magazine, the former boy bander said that he's only been in touch with Liam recently, explaining: "I spoke to Liam about two weeks ago. It was the first time I'd spoken to him since I left the band, and I rung him, and he wanted to talk. He said that he didn't understand it at the time, but he now fully gets why I had to do what I did."
He added, "He understands that it's my thing, that I had to do that, and that basically he wants to meet up and sit down and have a good chat in person, and he wants to do some music and work on some stuff aside from being in the band, which we always wanted to do anyway."
Okay, this sounds promising.
Yet, on the Ellen DeGeneres show, when the One Direction guys were asked about Zayn, things got a bit awkward, to say the least, with Harry totally cracking up.
Ellen asked, "Why are you laughing?" Harry's response? "Because you can cut the tension in here. Let's make some jokes."
