Some girls like to say one thing and mean another. And me being who I am, I'm very straightforward. Everything is very black and white for me. I don't really like playing mind games.

When we were on 'The X Factor,' we didn't realize how overnight the fame thing was. We didn't really understand it until we went on a shopping trip. It was like Week 7 or 8 of the show. We went with a few other contestants and there were loads of people, packed.

I do feel like I've missed out a bit because I was really close with my sisters when I was at home. It must be weird for them but they cope really well.

Get on with life because life gets on without you.

I am the most jealous boy in the world, when I'm with my girlfriend. I always kiss her so that the other guys know she's mine

Our parents are obviously proud, but they're still trying to get used to the fact that we're in a band. I have a feeling my mom would actually like One Direction if I wasn't in it!

Zayn Malik
I'm a massive fan of Drake, and we walked right past him. He's too cool to be clapping One Direction though.

Honestly, like, American football is not that big over in the U.K., so we hadn't really heard of Drew Brees before. I did know that he was, like, a massive football player. He's a massive star, so I was still a little bit anxious and nervous to meet him.

Zayn Malik
If you meet a girl, you meet a girl. It's normal, so if you exchange numbers, whatevs, it's cool.

I thought I had a type but I don't really have a type anymore. I just look for a girl who doesn't take herself too seriously.

Zayn Malik
I like girls that are chilled out, that dont really care, that are just cool
