Now Playing Tracks

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

and like zayn is a person who does so many things quietly like his donation to charity after red nose day and his gromit and him becoming an ambassador for the british asian trust like so many of the really great things that he does he does quietly and most people never know about it but this thing. HE DID IT IN FRONT OF MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AND HE’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE ASKED ABOUT IT A BUNCH OF TIMES AND EVEN KNOWING THAT HE STILL DID IT AND ON EID OF ALL DAYS.

Over 5,500 Iraqis have been slaughtered since the invasion of ISIS, with tens of thousands of Christians, Shias and Kurds demonised and forced to flee their homes. The world doesn’t seem to care because Iraq is not in Gaza. For those of you posting about Gaza only, I wish you just make an effort to see what’s been happening in Iraq and stand up to this cancer that’s plaguing both Iraq and Syria… Isn’t it about humanity after all?!
