Look, obviously we love Zayn Malik no matter what, but apparently he just can’t dance.
We caught up with X Factor Creative Director Brian Friedman at the Iron Man 3 premiere last night and, seeing as he was one of the people responsible for choreographing One Direction on the show in 2012, we had just one question.
Who can’t dance?
“Zayn, he just doesn’t have it,” he told us. “He’s got rhythm, he can’t learn choreography – he gets really intimidated and scared and can’t remember it.”
Erm… we beg to differ Brian – look at this!
But does Brian think the boys should be doing a few more dance routines to cement their boyband status?
“Absolutely not,” he said. “They didn’t do too well with dancing when I was working with them so they should stick with what they do best and that’s making girls swoon and singing.
“It’s not that they can’t handle it – some are better than others, no names to be mentioned – but it’s not what they’re about. They’re not a dancy boyband kind of thing, they’re just about youth an exuberance and making girls swoon.”
And that, they can do.
