A day in the life of Zayn Malik is a tough one, punctuated with constant fear and paranoia. Many think he’s simply pouting because he admires a strong Blue Steel, but no. Oh no.

We have foolishly been mistaken, as the One Direction singer's “Look at me, I’m fit” pose is actually, “AGH, OH MY GOD HELP, I’M TERRIFIED OF EVERYTHING BUT STILL NEED MY FACE TO LOOK HOT.”

ZAYN MALIK

Seriously, Zayn is scared of everything. Don’t believe us? CLICK NEXT to take a leaf through our comprehensive guide to The Many Fears of Zayn Jawaad Malik.

 

 

 

 

 

Zayn’s first fear is The Water, one of Mother Nature’s most unpredictable elements. In fact Zaynster’s fear is so bad that he can’t even swim.

Although if you could cast your minds back a few months, you’ll remember the dark secret behind Zaybedee’s trepidation – he’s actually just trying to conceal the fact he turns into a merman when he gets wet.

In a recent interview Zayn confessed to being afraid of girlfriend Perrie Edwards’ brother.

“I went up to meet her Mum and family the other month," he told The Sun. “I was a bit scared of her brother to be honest — he’s in the Navy. He’s a big bloke.”

He’s in the Navy so spends his time AT SEA. We see a pattern forming.

Fear number three for Zayn is heights.

“I’m scared of heights”, he said, which is a common thing for most people who are scared of heights to say.

Fear number four is a combination of two things: stairs and Louis Tomlinson. We can understand how a Sasquatch loose on a staircase would be a daunting thing. “I don’t it like when Louis messes about on the stairs, I hate it.”

Fear number five is, drum roll please... “I’m scared of rides.”

Can we put him on a really high water ride, maybe Splash Mountain at Disneyland Florida? Oh come on, it’ll be fuhhhny.

Fear number six, was revealed by The Sasquatch, whadda bitch.

“He’s scared of the dark as well, he can’t handle not having the light on,” said Luigi.

"I’m not scared of the dark, that’s a lie,” lied Zayn.

"He’s genuinely scared of the dark,” continued Louis.

"OK, I’m scared of the dark, Louis."

"He’s got a night-light, hasn’t he?" said The Sassy One as part of his final blow. Ouch.

Fear number seven comes in the form of Johnny Depp, and no, not when he looks weird as Edward Scissorhands.

On why he was the only 1D member not to go to the actor’s house, Zaynderella said: "I was too nervous to go. I am a massive, massive fan and I didn't want to embarrass myself so I let the boys go without me.

"Hopefully, there will be a next time. The boys said he was totally cool. I kind of regret it for sure and the lads said I was a scaredy cat.

"Some of our fans get so excited or nervous when they meet us and that's how I was at the thought of being with Johnny. But instead of lapping it up and enjoying it, I ran the other way."

Oh Zayn...

Fear number eight, our final fear is: Mice biting his toesies. Yes you read that correctly.

Now we have no direct quote from el Maliko that is what turns him into a shaking mess on the floor, but we have some startlingly strong evidence – Zayn wears two pairs of socks.

“Zayn Malik ALWAYS wears two pairs of socks,” said Manika who toured with the boys. She added that he “even used to put a couple of pairs on as soon as he had jumped out of the swimming pool. Strange, but true.”

Now why else would anyone where two pairs of socks unless they were scared of mice biting their toesies? EXACTLY.

Thank you for spending time reading our guide. We hope this has been enlightening.
