Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik is one-fifth of the British/Irish boyband One Direction that formed on the talent show The X Factor. One Direction's other members are Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Liam Payne. They finished third on The X Factor, but went on to have massive success, reinvigorating the boy band genre and starting a British invasion in the U.S.

A few facts about Zayn: He was born on Jan. 12, 1993 in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, has three sisters and is of mixed Pakistani, Englis and Irish descent. He is one of the most tattooed members of the bunch and often gets the "bad boy" reputation of the band.

Zayn is engaged to singer Perrie Edwards, whose girl group Little Mix won season 8 of The X Factor. Both Zayn and Perrie have denounced rumors that Zayn was ever cheating while on tour.

One Direction, has released three albums: Up All Night, Take Me Home and Midnight Memories. The fourth album, appropriately titled Four, is set to be released Nov. 2014. The band's hit songs include "What Makes You Beautiful," "Kiss You," "Live While We’re Young," "Best Song Ever," "One Thing" and "Story of My Life."

One Direction has a huge online presence. The boy band's "What Makes You Beautiful" video has over 559 million views on YouTube and the group has over 35 million Facebook fans, plus over 20 million Twitter followers.

1D fans call themselves Directioners and are known to write crazy fancitions and "dirty imagines," aka fantasies, about the boys on Tumblr.
