“In February, we headed to LA to do some work on the album, which was absolutely crazy. It’s a different world out there though at one point I was worried I wasn’t even going to get into the country. All other guys went through passport control fine, then a woman stopped me, called over our tour manage Paul and said: “There’s a problem with him. He needs to go back.” They took me into a room and I thought they were going to keep me there for hours, but thankfully the women who came to talk to me knew who Simon Cowell was and knew I was a band. In the end i was interviewed for an hour about what I was doing there and why I was visiting America. It turned out that my name was flagged up as similar to that of someone they were looking for, so they were just being cautious. I got stopped at customs as well, but again I got through okay as the guy there was really nice.”—
Zayn Malik, Dare to Dream
In case you’re wondering, this is what racism and islamophobia look like
i had no idea cultural appropriation even existed until this year tbh and now i see how important it is. but a lot of people still have no idea that what they’re doing is wrong and offensive to others. i think that we should all try to help and educate people instead of throwing rocks at them…
Hazza boo bear mirrors leprechauns four lead clovers turtles and cats and bow ties and suspenders and CARROTS ! And dj Malik and VAS HAPENIN? And daddy direction and uncle simon and mr x and UAN I just started crying
I get really pissed off when people think Zayn isn’t the hottest member of One Direction like why are people taste so bad? Why would you pick the frog prince Harry? Why do you think that blonde hobbit is cute? You could swap Liam with an Enchilada and it would take 45 minutes to notice, and whats that others ones name?
