Zayn Malik was scheduled to give an interview with Canadian radio station New Hot 89.9, but it didn't go according to plan - the DJ actually didn't want to do the interview!
Here's what went wrong. Zayn's publicist gave the DJ a huge list of questions he couldn't ask Zayn, so the DJ decided not to do it. The whole interview lasted only about 20 seconds.
This is the list of things the DJ couldn't ask Zayn:
Check out the interview below, around 1:35 to hear the publicist and the 'interview'. Zayn comes in around 2:35.
One Direction's management have since released a statement about the interview:
"Regarding the recent story about One Direction "banning questions" -this is a complete misunderstanding. One Direction asked if certain recurring questions could be avoided in future interviews as the band were giving the same answers continually. They knew, via feedback, that the fans were requesting a wider range of subject matter in interviews.
Questions relating to describing each band member, or referencing The X Factor, are certainly not out of bounds. A suggestion was merely made to try and make interviews more interesting for the fans, which has been misconstrued and misunderstood."
It's understandable that the DJ was frustrated, but we bet a lot of Directioners wouldn't have given up 10 minutes with Zayn for anything!
