Last week the world of pop music and popular culture was well and truly disjointed by the shock revelation that a this particular boyband member would be parting ways from his fellow bandmates and *ahem* taking a new direction.

Zayn Malik of One Direction released the statement ‘I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.’ and we can’t help but be a little bit sad, so we thought we’d use this weeks Man Crush Monday to post a farewell to him and his beautiful face. Thanks for the memories, Zayn.
