Ever since Zayn Malik stepped away from One Direction and signed a record deal to become a solo artist both fans and non-believers have been curious as to what kind of music he will be bringing out, as well as how he will go about it.
The former boybander has been courting quite a bit of controversy in recent months, with twitter spats with former band mate Louis Tomlinson as well as DJ Calvin Harris. Not to mention that Rolling Stone interview where he made some untoward remark towards his former group, and it's safe to say that Zayn Malik has been maintaining interest in the media.
But now that we are days away from the release of his debut solo single "Pillow Tak," Zayn has once again made a rather unexpected move for someone trying to step away from the shadows of a huge bubblegum pop career and make his mark with his own style of music.
The music star is reported to have cancelled what would have been his first major solo television appearance.
Malik was scheduled to start shooting his appearance this week for the Graham Norton Show with the episode set to air on Friday on January 29th, the same day his single is set for release.
Zayn's team has said that the cancellation is due to a scheduling conflict since the singer has to put some finishing touches on his album in the studio.
'Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts with recording commitments, Zayn's appearance on Graham Norton has been postponed,' a rep for Malik told the Daily Mail.
But an unnamed source told the Sun, that there may be something more with this than just a simple scheduling conflict.
"They have put it down to scheduling issues but this is an appearance that has been in the diary for a while now." the source said and then added,"But it will spark talk of something being wrong behind the scenes. This appearance is a big deal to both Zayn and his fans."
Although it is quite understandable if Zayn is trying his best to make the album perfect, let us hope that nothing is really wrong and he is able to bring out music he loves without a hitch.
