Zayn Malik might be getting a little too into his new-found fame. It seems the One Direction star loves seeing his girl fans faint in his presence. And who knows, there may even be some male Directioners out there who've succumbed to attacks of the vapors in the fab five's presence, but for now, Zayn is focused exclusively on the literally swooning females.
According to fan sites, girl fans faint in the presence of the 1D members with appalling regularity, but until now, no one has ever bothered to ask any of the guys how the fainting affected them. In a recent interview, Zayn Malik opened up and admitted that watching his fans literally black out from the thrill of being near him is pretty darned excitingÂ—albeit a bit weird.
"A girl fainted in front of me the other day," mused Zayn. "Obviously you don't get to see things like that unless you are The Beatles who have that power, and to see it that close was a bit scary."
Zayn was careful to add that while it was kind of "scary" seeing the young woman actually hit the floorboards at the mere sight of him up close, it was still cool. It made him feel totally powerful.
"I didn't really enjoy her fainting in front of me," Zayn liedÂ—erÂ—revealed. "However, it was cool to know I could make a girl faint!"
Sounds like Zayn Malik is becoming a tad obsessed with the power of his fame. On the other hand, nothing says "I love you" quite like falling to the floor unconscious.
What do you think?
