Zayn Malik has been enjoying success with his first solo single, and his relationship status with Gigi Hadid has been confirmed. However, at the same time, Zayn Malik has finally announced his first solo performances while getting some light shade from the exes in his life — and unexpected romantic attention from Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds.
When it rains, it pours, but this does not mean it’s all bad news for Zayn Malik. MTV U.K. reports on February 5, that Zayn Malik has risen to the top of the Billboard singles music charts in America to number one with his debut solo single, “Pillowtalk.”
Adding to this, Zayn Malik’s song is officially the “fastest-selling single of 2016 so far” and he also has “112,000 combined sales, including just shy of 5 million streams.”
About “Pillowtalk,” Irish Times reports on February 6, that Zayn Malik has ditched his “clean cut image” and quoted Zayn saying “Everyone has sex. It’s part of everybody’s life. You can’t brush it under the carpet.”
Speaking of sexy things you cannot brush under the carpet, Ryan Reynolds who was quoted by Elite Daily responding to the question of what he would do if he was stuck in an elevator with Zayn Malik and he stated the following.
“Well, yeah, you stay in the elevator… And you stay as long as you can… until you die holding each other.”
Unfortunately, the other people that have a history of being enraptured with Zayn Malik include some of his exes. For example, Stephanie Davis is currently on Celebrity Big Brother — and she has been talking about her past relationship with Zayn Malik.
On February 5, the Mirror reports Stephanie Davis thinks Zayn Malik is a good guy, and that their five-month relationship ended well, despite rumors. Nonetheless, Stephanie Davis also made the point that she ended the relationship with Zayn Malik — and not the other way around.
This news from Stephanie Davis comes on the heels of Zayn Malik releasing his racy video with his now confirmed girlfriend, Gigi Hadid. US Magazine says that Zayn Malik got tired of teasing fans and decided to make the relationship official around February 3 by not denying she was his girlfriend when the interviewer referred to her in that context.
This is great news considering that Gigi Hadid’s friends and sister once said that they thought Zayn Malik was a weird loner, he was possibly using her, and that they were not a great couple.
Now, J-14 reports that insiders close to Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid think they will be together forever and that “this relationship is very different then when she was with [Joe] Jonas.”
Naturally, the other news Zayn Malik fans are anticipating is his first solo performance. Zayn Malik rocked fans in late January when he told KIIS FM’s Ryan Seacrest that he would perform at their Wango Tango festival.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Zayn Malik show in Los Angeles in early May at the Wango Tango festival will be his first live performance, but it appears that a televised performance will be coming soon
Sadly, Stephanie Davis is not the only ex in Zayn Malik’s world that might be referencing him as he is launching solo music. Styles News reports that Gigi Hadid’s recent ex, Joe Jonas, is starting to dress a lot like Zayn Malik.
TMZ goes one step further and calls Joe Jonas’ fashion decisions an attempt to “Single White Female” Zayn Malik and references the stalker movie from 1992.
Of course, Joe Jonas might be changing his hair color to compete with both Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik since all three seem to be using the same hairdresser to choose their recent grey, lavender, pastel and day-glo-colored hairstyles.
MTV U.K. also reported that there might be some competition opening up between Zayn Malik and Justin Bieber since Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk” was at number one while Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” is at number five in the Billboard singles charts.
In the end, the real drama we might see between Zayn Malik and Justin Bieber is dividing their mutual fans into cat people and dog people. Zayn Malik has become notorious in his post-One Direction days for posing with cats on social media, and now Justin Bieber has jumped into the mix with a new puppy.
MTV U.K. reports on February 5, that Justin Bieber’s dog is “a black Labrador puppy named Philip.”
