Zayn Malik: “I Like Girls That Are a Bit Chunky in Certain Areas — the Nice Areas”


The former ‘One Direction’ singer has revealed that he doesn’t like stick thin girls and prefers those who are “a bit chunky” but only in certain areas. He’s also looking for an intelligent and opinionated girl who can make interesting conversation and isn’t just about vacuous topics:

“I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas — the nice areas. I like a fuller woman. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.”

Zayn admits he wasn’t happy with being a part of the ‘machine’ while in ‘One Direction’ because they were forced to censor themselves and everything was about pleasing the fans. Zayn argues that people are more intelligent and should be interested in what they really have to say:

“It was like a f—ing machine going constantly… We weren’t allowed to say certain things, or word [lyrics] the way we would want to. I’d sit and wonder, ‘If the fans knew how it worked, what would they think?’ My argument was: People are more intelligent than that. They want to hear what’s real, so why don’t we write some stuff that we’re actually going through?”

He adds that he did enjoy his time with the band and strived to be himself as much as he could, even though he constantly felt as though he had to fit into what was expected of them. He also says he has his own musical influences that are different to the other band members:

“I genuinely enjoyed [the band] and did whatever I could to be myself within that, but it’s just not where I sit as a musician. The other boys’ taste was generally indie rock. It’s good music, but I don’t f— with it. That was never cool where I was from.”
