Zayn Malik covered the latest issue of Billboard, giving him another opportunity to share his story of leaving One Direction and setting out for L.A. and a solo career. He discusses his enthusiasm for recording—seven songs a night, "I'm not censoring myself anymore"—and takes a few light digs at his former bandmates: "The other boys' taste was generally indie rock. It's good music, but I don't fuck with it. That was never cool where I was from."
Most importantly, Zayn tells Billboard that he has installed strict rules when it comes to weed consumption: sativa only. Why? It's "creative weed."
