Zayn Malik’s anxiety has been taking over the news because he suddenly canceled a recent concert due to an attack. Adding to this, it was recently pointed out that money issues might be a problem for Zayn Malik. Instead, it appears that Zayn Malik may need to increase his sales as a solo artist to give to projects such as his favorite charities.
However, things are not exclusively stressful in Zayn Malik’s world. For example, E! Online reports that Zayn officially got back together with Gigi Hadid.
Despite the good news, getting back together with Gigi Hadid did not quell Zayn Malik, and anxiety overtook him at the Summertime Ball. According to Guardian, Zayn Malik profusely apologized after the June 11 incident, and revealed on Twitter that he had issues with anxiety in the past.
By explaining his issues with anxiety, Zayn Malik unofficially did an act of charity by promoting anxiety awareness.
For example, We The Unicorns wrote on June 15 that “If more people like… Zayn Malik spoke about anxiety and stomped all over those who just believe it’s for attention or doesn’t really exist then we’ll no doubt live in a happier world.”
Adding to this, Baeble Music wrote on June 14 that Zayn Malik is adding to the list of celebrity artists that are “raising awareness about mental illness.”
Following the cancellation, Zayn Malik had an interview published in Dazed and Confused. According to Capital FM, Zayn Malik stated “I don’t tend to go out much. I stick to my own bubble, as it is. Creatively and socially, I think, as I’m getting older, that’s just the way I am.”
Moreover, when prompted about having a second album out before the end of the year, Zayn Malik started talking about an urge to create profusely and stated the following.
“I’m kind of itching a little bit. I want to work. I’ve learned over four or five years that it’s good to work because you’re earning, not spending.”
Regardless, now that Zayn Malik is discussing anxiety issues and an urge to keep working/earning and not spending, UnReality TV is speculating that part of his troubles with anxiety may be related to finances. They go on to question if Zayn Malik’s spending habits have left him depleted of his One Direction fortune.
While the size of Zayn Malik’s bank account might be in question, Zayn still has a firm focus on charity. For example, Zayn Malik recently posted about working with an AIDS research charity called amfAR.
Zayn Malik was a big part of charity work when he was with One Direction, and he has continued this tradition since splitting with the band in 2015.
For example, Celebs Now stated on April 3 that Zayn Malik “celebrated” the success of his album Mind of Mine by purchasing a set of seats at a football/soccer stadium for underprivileged kids to watch matches for free.
On the other hand, paying the bills is always a reality for every celebrity that is famous enough to need to pay for their own security team. Unfortunately, even for successful musicians like Zayn Malik, getting paid for music and having enough left over for charity is a tricky business.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, One Direction made most of their money because of touring and merchandise, while their album or music streaming sales were far less.
Since Zayn Malik might need to regard his anxiety condition and avoid heavy touring, one of the only ways to make money as a musician in 2016 is with merchandise.
For this reason, it should not be overlooked that Zayn Malik has continued to promote the punk fashion look, and his cover photo for Dazed and Confused shows him in the classic punk studded biker jacket.
