It’s the 12th January 2014, which can mean only one thing.




Let’s take a look back over the past 12 months in the life of Zayn!


Zayn and Perrie | Coutney Webb

It wasn’t a good start to the year last year for Zayn as in January he was accused of cheating on Perrie with an Australian waitress. It was a bit of a rocky time for Zerrie but they managed to pull through it.


Zayn to quit One Direction?

After the incident in January with the Australian waitress, February brought the news that Zayn wanted to quit One Direction after he had the toughest six months of his life in his band. We cried, a lot! But almost a year later and Zayn is still in the band! PHEW!



We got to March and Zayn got a new tattoo on the top left of his chest. It was a skull, with devil horns, smoking and wearing a top hat. Don’t ask us either, we don’t know the meaning behind it, or how Zayn came up with it in the first place.

In April, Zayn returned to the tattoo studio for some ink on his chest. No doubt inspired by Harry’s butterfly, Zayn got a tattoo of a pair of lips with wings. Again not quite sure the meaning behind this one but we love it all the same.



This was one of our favorite Zerrie stories of the year and just proves how cute they are. Perrie posted a picture on twitter of Zayn fast asleep. Not only that, but Perrie had taken advantage of Zayn’s knocked out state and painted his nails too! Just far too adorable!



Another month and another visit to the tattoo parlour for Zayn. This time it was the time got a tattoo of Perrie on his right arm. It took a while for a picture of the tattoo to come out, put our mock up of the tattoo was pretty much perfect right?


Zayn and Perrie walking hand-in-hand 

In July a horrible trend on Twitter was started by fans of The Wanted. The hashtag #RIPZaynMalik sent twitter into meltdown. There’s not liking a band and then there’s incredibly sick jokes. So in retaliation, Directioners got #RIPMaxGeorge trending.

Also during this month it was revealed just how much Zayn loves Perrie purely by the fact he took FOUR flights between the UK and US in five days to spend time with her.

It’s nice to see that even with their busy schedules they still make time for each other.


Zayn did 9/11 artwork 

The start of August was awful for Zayn. Somehow a song by an artist called ‘Rucka Rucka Ali’ was available for download. The song of course was ‘Zayn Did 9/11’.

However it was all forgotten about when at the ‘This Is Us’ premiere, Perrie turned up with an engagement ring and it eventually came out that Zayn had proposed just a few days before.

But then it got worse for Zayn as more rumours flooded around saying that he cheated on Perrie just weeks before they got engaged. It was of course found out to be false.



September came around and it meant another trip to the tattoo studio for Zayn. This time he had a tattoo of a tiger on his upper left arm. You can only see the tail on this picture, but we still think it looks good.

Also this month the rumours about Zerries wedding began. This month was the story about Zayn and Perrie’s wedding costing around £1.2m. Well for that amount of money it would be absolutely amazing we think.



Another month, another wedding rumour. This time it was that they had put their wedding on hold due to their work commitments, which would actually make sense, but we hope not.

Also this month, Perrie insisted that she wants Zayn to be her personal taxi driver, once he passes his driving test of course!

Zayn revealed this month that he proposed to Perrie while they were watching a film with family and friends, which is just adorable.

This month he also got the space monkey tattoo as well as being very cheeky in Australia by changing the words from ‘rock me’ to ‘f**k me’.


Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards beach wedding

This month was the wedding rumour that Zerrie would be having a beach wedding in Barbados, which let’s face it would be beyond perfect for the two of them.

However it wasn’t all great for Zayn this month as he had a fight with a paparazzi in Australia and was rumoured to have hit a fan in the face. It eventually came out that Zayn was just protecting her and that if he did hit her, it was to stop the paps from hurting her.



December was the time for wedding plans, wedding plans and even more wedding plans. We’re not quite sure what exactly will happen but if the rumours are true they will end up getting married on pretty much every continent.

Also Zayn opened his presents from Perrie a whole two weeks early because he was that excited. C’mon Zayn get with the Christmas spirit and wait till the day itself.

Also this month Zayn revealed that he would never go solo, much to the relief of Directioners everywhere!

January 2014


And so we are in the New Year. Perrie took Zayn to Disneyland Paris for his birthday, which is beyond adorable.

Also they got their dog Hatchi’s haircut and he ended up looking like a lion. It was one of the most adorable things ever!

So there you have it, the past 12 months in the life of Zayn!

And if you want to relive some of those moments, here’s a video full of everything we’ve pretty much said.

    He is sweet
    He is an angel
    He is unique
    He is artistic
    He is loving
    He is perfect
    He is Zayn Malik
    I thank Zayn for being the silent center of the band…The one who gives a lot to charity
    but everythin goes unnoticed…The one who bought his mum a house…nd simply the
    one who made a girl faint by lukin at her! Im really thankful for Zayn..bcoz even
    though he’s quiet, his actions speak a lot. Even without sayin a word..we knw
    how much he cares for us..And that’s why im so glad he’s part of the band..nd I
    don’t give a damn if people don’t like him..Without Zayn..there IS no One Direction…
    Zayn doesn’t smile and talk often but when he does he literally lights up the whole world! From your perfect hair to your perfect tattoos…In our mind u’ll always be that little 17 yr old boy from Bradford that never wanted to dance…!
    Lots of Love from all of us here at Onedirection. Net! XXX

  • DirectionerPower!xD

    for his birthday yesterday, me and my sister made a cake for him and since her friend follows him on twitter, she told him about it and sent him a picture! I was so happy! I also watched this is us for the billionth time which is still not enough, read his section in the book dare to dream, and even taped a birthday hat to my Zayn Poster! Yeah, I’m kind of….Deticated as I like to put it! I also listened to every song one direction sang from the X factor to midnight memories and started crying because I just realized how much he changed!;’) LOVE YOU ZAYN!!!!!!!!!!
