Guys, guess what? Oh no wait - you already know it's Zayn Malik's 23rd birthday, right? You've already celebrated with cake for breakfast, if we know you like we think we do. So, since the original Bradford Bad Boy (we haven't called him that for ages) was brought into this world 23 years ago to this day, we thought we'd look back at all the reasons why the once 'normal 22-year-old' isn't so normal now.
Yup - el Maliko ain't no muggle like you and I; and we're gonna list loads of reasons why he's kind of a big deal. Y'all ready for thiiiis?
1. Just this magazine cover, really. IT'S INHUMANE.
2. He has his own YEAR, 'cos 2016's just boring af tbh.
3. He's probably the only person on the planet capable of making a blue puffer jacket look good.
4. The height of his hair knows literally no bounds.
5. He never tries to conform and we kinda love him for it.
6. HE'S JUST SO GOOD AT IDENTIFYING FRUITS.
7. The single strand, though. Never forget.
8. He had a dream and did it. ASPIRATIONAL.
9. He's just a little boy from Bradford, and now he's smashing it <3
10. Well do you know anyone else who can hit these high notes?
11. Remember when he just, like, bought his mum a house? Normal 23-year-olds have never done that.
12. This GIF.
13. He slays the fashion game errrrrytime.
14. He basically invented 'vas happenin'?' and for that we're forever grateful.
15. He's dead arty and likes graffiti and stuff.
16. 'Let Me Love You.' That is all.
17. He has a pirate-themed pub in his shed. Like, that's just not a normal thing people have.
18. He holds puppies better than normal people hold puppies.
19. His selfies just give us LIFE.
20. He does Taylor Swift potentially even better than Taylor Swift.
21. His hair looks that good and he washes it in A SINK.
22. We like his facial hair.23. WE JUST LOVE HIM OKAY? HAPPPY BIRTHDAY BABES.
