Zayn Malik Shafted In Midnight Memories

zayn-malik-midnight-memories-gifMany Directioner’s are upset because of Zayn Malik’s lack of scenes in One Direction’s Memories Music video. Zayn has a total of 11 seconds of solo air time in the three minute 21 second long video for Midnight Memories, as opposed to Louis Tomlinson, who has more than double that amount, reports The Mirror.

Directioners angry Tweets ‘ZAYN DOESN’T HAVE A SOLO, THUS HE DOESN’T HAVE AS MUCH SCREEN TIME AS THE OTHER BOYS. I CALL THIS UNFAIR AND UTTERLY RIDICULOUS.’ Zayn had about 10 seconds of screen time for mm music video, I’m not happy.’

As usual Zayn got the least amount of screen time and I’m not pleased.’ ‘Zayn got, like, zero screen time, like, wtf?’ Source: ‘The rest of the boys sing solos in the track, so obviously they feature on their own in the video a bit more.

But it’s weird that in a lot of the group shots, like on the police boat, Zayn’s back is turned. Otherwise, he’s almost always lurking out of shot, except when all five of the boys are on screen. It reflects how quiet he always is in interviews with the others, too.’

Either way the Where We Are Tour is set to make over $1 billion in 12 months!

One Direction have been predicted to become the most successful band in the world with earnings of a billion dollars a year. It is estimated the band will earn the record £611 million amount during their upcoming Where We Are tour with 88 shows.

They will become the first act to perform three consecutive nights at the 95,000-seat Rose Bowl stadium in California. A spokesman for the band told the Daily Star: ‘It would be amazing for 1D to climb to the very top of the tour league so early in their career. That would be a phenomenal testament to the loyalty and support of their fans.’

Music industry insider Mory Brenner added: ‘You have to go back to 1964, when The Beatles led the British Invasion that turned American’s music industry upside down, to find anything close to the following they have.’

      … Liam’s high notes are much better. Have you seen have of the youtube videos?

  • Wisconsin

    Ya’ll are acting like because he didn’t get much screen time that he’s out of the band and has hardly any solos on the album which isn’t the case, calm down. it’s one music video and they’re still hitting millions of views regardless.

    • Anna

      Exactly this is like the one song he doesn’t have a solo in. This doesn’t mean that Zayn is leaving the band, that rumor starts up every few months though so it is about time for a new theory.

  • Grammy Winner Taylor Swift

    It’s CLEARLY because they are transitioning him out of the band.

    Zayn DOES NOT want to be in One Direction anymore.

    It’s very obvious.

    • Ailen:)

      that’s not obvious, it looks like he has less solos cause in the two first albums only liam harry and zayn had solos well louis and niall had just like 3 seconds in 2 or three songs , but now everyone has almost the same amount of solos so

  • oo

    I’m not even a fan and I understand why they got mad. my god look at his beautiful face .He’s literally the only good looking one in the band. The other 4 are basic and ugly as fuck . Their faces are not made for the entertainment industry unlike his face

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Mmmmm he’s sexy.
    Look at those eyes.


    Screen time or not, he carries that group vocally and everyone knows it.

    It’s funny, I remember a movie critic saying the same thing abt their movie; that even though he got the least screen time, he had the most to contribute vocally. Smh

  • laura

    haha omfg why do people make a fuss about something so stupid?

  • Emmatome

    If he doesn’t get any solo, I get why they didn’t film him on his own. But, yeah that’s kind of upsetting if you’re a fan. They all should have the same screen time.

  • Justlaughoxo

    If you haven’t noticed THE MIRROR lies! All of the boys hate THE MIRROR because they make up such bullshit. Big deal Zayn didn’t get a solo. Please go watch Story Of My Life if that will make you feel better. xD

  • Ailen:)

    it’s stupid, in this album they all have almost the same time of solos, but it seems like he hasn’t many as he used to have ’cause first it was always liam, then harry chorus then zayn and sometimes niall or louis, then in take me home it was harry zayn, liam and niall and louis had more solos, but now they all have the same, so it looks like zayn sings less but he has solos in the other songs

  • Ailen:)

    this is why it looks like he has less solos… but you all like to make a big deal out of everything

    • wow

      lol omg there’s a chart?!

  • boystan

    only 11 seconds?

  • boystan


  • BangBang

    Zayn was the only good thing in the video anyway

  • Jajabinx

    It’s because he’s muslim and islamophobia & racism are still very much alive. They got him engaged and he talks less in interviews now. They’re making him lose fans/gain the least amnt. He used to be so full of life in old interviews and he was so funny in those video diaries – before they were taken over by the THE MAN if u knw wat im talking about. It’s evident n I pity him. He has the best voice in the group n also the best looking. For what other reason woud he be shoved away like this?

    • Emmy

      Let me be real with you, this is cannot be the case. I’ve observed 1D from the start and the truth is, this group was poorly formed. Vocal-wise, they never matched up. Liam is a baritone and the rest of them are tenors, so, the harmonies don’t make sense. It was all fun and games on the X Factor, very relaxed. But I noticed how Simon Cowell has been exploiting them, making them into a brand rather than a band. It’s ridiculous. They must all be exhausted. To put it simply, Zayn’s heart never seemed in it. Not racism, I hardly think him being half-Pakistani or Muslim. The music video was quite stupid anyway. I don’t think the group will last very long.

      • WatchOut

        Everyone who is in the spotlight is a brannd. they all sell us an image not just 1D.
