With One Direction going on with the rest of the Asian leg of their ‘On the Road Again’ world tour without Zayn Malik, fans are in a bit of a letdown. But they’ll most likely burst into angry flames if they hear Wendy Williams say that Malik should just quit the band altogether!
In a segment of her show ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ on Monday, March 23, Wendy Williams and her segment co-host Marianne Garvey from ‘Gossip Table’ talked about Zayn Malik taking a break from One Direction’s concert tour, apparently due to stress brought on by publicity and the cheating rumors connected to him and his fiancée Perrie Edwards.
Williams inquired to Garvey as to how the rest of the members of One Direction were handling the rest of the tour without Malik. Garvey said that they’re doing quite well enough without him. This then prompted Williams to speak her mind about the issue at hand.
“Here’s what I think, One Direction, One Direction fans and anyone else who cares. If you can do five-part harmony, it’s just as easy to do four-part harmony. I say kick this guy out of the group because now that is more money for the rest of us, we don’t have you split money five ways,” Williams said in a background of applause from the audience.
Wow! Talk about an explosive suggestion! But before you One Directioners out there start throwing bashes at Williams, hear out the rest of what she said…
Williams went on to say that she’s not at all mad at Malik and she actually admires him for standing in his decisions. However, if he does want to lead a normal life again, without the fame and paparazzi stressing him down, he should be given the chance to do so. She then concluded her statement with, “[We] don’t need to audition anybody new. Four members of the group are fine.”
