When Zayn Malik left 1D over a year ago, the whole world stopped. The alarming #cutforzayn spread like wildfire on Twitter and hoards of tear-stained One Directioners were left to question why. Why them? Why now?

16 months on and Zayn has finally revealed the reason behind his monumental decision: extraterrestrial forces made him do it. Duh! What else? Speaking to Glamour in a quickfire Q&A, the pop-star reflected on his shock decision to quit the band that made him. "An alien spoke to me in a dream." Sure.

Elsewhere the boybander revealed his first ever celeb crush ("Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. They're the same, right?" No Zayn, not right), as well as the first person he texts in the morning — his mama — and dropped not so subtle hints about smoking weed. He also finally admitted that wearing pastel clothes was a big fashion no no, but we still love him for it.
