Zayn Malik sure got stronger in the nick of time. Not even haters can drag him down.
In an interview with FADER, the "Dusk Till Dawn" singer was all honest saying he "don't pay too much attention to what people" say about him and doesn't allow bashers to tear up his views of other artists. "I just tend to take it for what it is when I meet them people in real life and have a conversation with them. If they're cool with me, then I base my relationship on that," he said.
And that brings us to his "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" collaborator Taylor Swift who's being criticized for her new music. "In terms of relating to it, of course I relate to things being written about us all the time. But I don't listen to it," Zayn explained. "I rate her as an artist, I think she's cool, I think she's successful, and I think she deserves her success because she's worked hard. That's just how I look at it. I did a song with her, it was fun, she was professional. She gets on with my girlfriend (Gigi Hadid), they're good friends. I don't have a bad word to say about her. She's cool."
A pat on the back for Tay, and a high five for Zayn, everybody.
