Rumors indicate that Zayn Malik’s leave from One Direction signifies his hunger to become the group’s breakout star, a solo act like Justin Timberlake. However, the rumors are possibly wrong, disregarding Malik extracurricular activities. On one hand, Justin Timberlake was a born performer with a thirst for constant attention. On the other hand, Zayn Malik was always the quiet member of his group and on top of that, none of the boys in One Direction is poised for a solo career like Justin Timberlake.
However, the latest assumption was helped by the fact that each of the One Direction boys auditioned individually for X-Factor. From the looks of it, One Direction could have just been the Stage One for Zayn Malik.
From the natural order of things, Zayn Malik is probably looking to transform his boy band success to superstardom. In the meantime, if he is entertaining such thoughts, Zayn Malik should keep in mind that for every Justin Timberlake, there have been quite a few Nick Carters, experts who couldn’t just stick the landing.
Justin Timberlake didn’t become a solo superstar just because he was talented. It was due to his collaboration with the right people and appreciating the public interest in his personal life.
Stay tuned for more updates on Justin Timberlake!
