His 'scrapbook' will give a more raw perspective of his life.
Former one direction star, Zayn Malik has announced he is releasing his first autobiography. The 23-year-old singer is aiming to publish his work with Penguin Random House worldwide on November 1.
He wants to show his perspective on things in an innovative way. The book will contain drawings and personal photographs alongside his thoughts, rather than solely pages of written narrative.
Zayn stated: “I’m going to show you as much as I can so that you can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says.”
Penguin also stated that his autobiography will contain parts of his childhood in Bradford. The book will hopefully show insights into Malik growing up outside of fame and in a home of mixed backgrounds, including the influence of his Pakistani roots. We may be able to see how ‘Desi’ Zayn really is, and see his true upbringing in a UK household.
Teenage heartthrob Zayn was heavily in the media spotlight, especially after announcing his departure from One Direction. His decision resulted in many ‘Directioners’ feeling confused to why he decided to abruptly leave, as his public statements did not give too much reason to why.
Zayn also received a lot of negative attention when he broke up with fiancee Perrie Edwards, from Little Mix and so many are hopeful that this autobiography may give insight to his decisions and what Malik was actually going through at the time.
Regardless, Zayn has been quite open and honest about his mental health issues and how it affects his career and lifestyle. After cancelling shows and disappointing fans, he hopes his ‘scrapbook’ method will give a more raw perspective of him and his life.
Many are quick to be apprehensive about the young star releasing a book on his short life, claiming that the book or ‘pamphlet’ would be a lot better if he had waited a little longer than 23 years to release it.
Nevertheless, there are many Directioners eagerly awaiting to find out about more on the boy band star, and an insight into the inside story.
