Zayn Malik has shared some more info about life after One Direction in his latest interview with Complex Magazine, admitting that despite being an absolutely enormous celeb, he reckons he's also a bit of a shit one.

Telling the mag that he's not exactly a big fan of televised interviews, but is quite happy chatting to people one-on-one, he said: "I'm a pretty s**t celebrity all around. 

"But when it comes to TV, that's the worst. I hate the whole setup. When its interviews like this, I don't mind. I'm just talking to a normal person."

Explaining that the whole thing is a bit like when Katniss does that interview with Caesar in The Hunger Games (he didn't actually make reference to that, we're just guessing tbh) he said: "It's when you are fully glammed up and you're sitting with a hundred lights in your face and someone is asking you questions in front of a crowd of people – that's when it becomes a bit strange for me."

Adding that he's a pretty quiet person in general, Zayn continued: "I'm not a public speaker. I'm a singer. Those two things are very different in my brain.

"I'm not an extrovert in everyday life. I'm a performer. When it comes to stage I can sing and do that, but when I'm in normal-day life I'm very reserved. I guess that's my downfall."

Not in the slightest, pal.
