Zayn Malik Looks Rage-Filled As One Direction Are Mobbed By Fans And Photographers At LAX (PHOTOS)
Zayn Malik is known to be the member of One Direction who is least comfortable with the limelight and he certainly didn’t look happy last night as the group touched down in the US as they were mobbed by fans and photographers at LAX.
The Bradford native, who had jetted out of the UK yesterday afternoon as the lads gear up to release their third album next week, Midnight Memories, appeared annoyed and frustrated as he made his way through the waiting pap squad.
One Direction fans had whipped themselves into a frenzy as they searched for the exit the boys would be taking after landing at the airport and so when they finally appeared things got a little out of control.
Photographers and fans fought to get close to the lads as the made their way to the car and it seems it all got a bit much for Zayn who seemed to be getting pretty frustrated with the scenes.
The Kiss You babe has previously admitted he struggles with the attention the boys receive and after three years in the spotlight it seems he hasn’t got much better at it.
“Just the fact that you could literally go anywhere, say anything and no one will judge you for it,” he told Australia’s Daily Telegraph last year.
“Now, if I was seen going to something really stupid like a kid’s playhouse or something to be childish, people would look at me strangely.”
And it seems his struggle to deal with fame also worries his bandmates with fellow star Liam Payne telling The Sun last October.
“The only person I really worry about is Zayn,” Liam said, “Because I don’t think he’s quite accustomed to all of this.
“He’s had a terrible time on Twitter, as did Danielle [Peazer],”
Liam explained, referring to his ex-girlfriend. “I don’t think he’s quite adjusted to it yet, I’m sure he’ll get it. He’s my best mate. I’ve got to look out for him,” he added.
The boys are in the US ahead of an appearance at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
