'People Thinks It's Crazy': Zayn Malik Admits His Family Can't Handle Fame

28 October 2013

Since appearing on the X Factor back in 2011, One Direction have gone from unknowns to A list and are now five of the most famous people on the planet, but according to Zayn Malik he and his family still can't get used to his level of fame and still see him as just a normal boy from Bradford.

The 19 year-old, who is currently engaged to Little Mix babe Perrie Edwards, insisted in a new interview that he's still the same teenager who auditioned for the show three years ago and still wasn't used to people recognising him.

“I think people I’m close to find it absolutely crazy that I’m famous," he told Top Of The Pops magazine.

"I once asked my older sister if she found it weird she she said that she did, but she doesn’t equate the person she sees on TV with the real me.”

He went on: “She just sees me at home with the rest of the family doing the usual, normal things, like having dinner and watching TV.”

Zayn grew up with three sisters, so we're guessing her knows a thing or two about girls, so it's no surprise he's managed to bag a beauty in the form of the gorgeous Perrie.

Speaking about how happy the couple are in a recent interview the DNA star revealed they were on "cloud nine".

"We’re just so happy right now. I’m on cloud nine and so is he," she told Bliss magazine.

Geordie beauty Perrie showed off her diamond engagement ring at the world premiere of One Direction's documentary movie This Is Us 3D earlier this year, later admitting the Kiss You babe had popped the question.

Insisting she wasn't nervous when showing off the ring she went on: "To be honest, I didn’t even think about it. I was going to an event, getting ready with the girls, excited to see him. I get scared at red carpets in case I fall over and I didn’t want to do that with the ring. But luckily I didn’t embarrass meself!” (sic)
