Somehow, it’s been almost a month since Zayn Malik quit One Direction, but while we’re still a little pre-occupied with trying to get our hearts to stop hurting, others are still dishing out advice and speculating on how he might be feeling.
Step forward Brian McFadden, who’s reckons the Bradford Bad Boy will find life after the band “difficult.”
Alright, don’t rub it in.
Brian, who’s been there, done that and got the metaphorical t-shirt after announcing his own departure from Westlife back in 2004, also admitted he didn’t have any words of wisdom for Zayn because no-one gave him any when he left.
Oh. Okay. Thanks.
Speaking to The Daily Star, the 35-year-old said he didn’t have any advice for Maliko because “every situation is different.”
Very true, Brian. Very true.
He admitted: “I don’t really have any advice for him. No one was there to give me any advice.”
Err, little bit of bitter response. You haven’t even ONE teeny tiny piece of advice for Zayn, Brian?
He continued: “I haven’t spoken to Zayn. I have spoken to some of the other boys but I don’t really know what’s going on.
“It’s difficult to adapt to life on your own when you spent so much time in a band, you kind of become a family.
“For Westlife, we became brothers and I think that was the hardest thing for me. Not waking up in the morning and sharing my day with four other lads, that’ll be difficult for him.”
Oh GAD, here come the feels again. Please don’t talk about the boys all being brothers again for a while, our broken hearts just cannot deal. CANNOT. DEAL.
As well as crushing us with talk of Zayn missing his 1D bandmates, Brian also spoke about other bands reunions and gave us a tiny glimmer of hope for the future.
He said: “I do think the Atomic Kitten reunion is brilliant.
“There has been a lot of great bands out there again, Blue and Five – or four or three however many are left.
“It’s good to see all these bands coming back.”
All we want is Zayn to come back tbh. PLEASE. We won’t ask for anything else for the next five years, promise.
