Zayn Malik No Longer Has Anxiety Since Leaving One Direction

(Radio.com) Last year, Zayn Malik opened up about his struggle with anxiety as he spun away from One Direction and launched his solo career. The tough time led to cancellations and reports that he suffered from an eating disorder.

In a new interview with Billboard, Malik gave an update and set the record straight about his relationship with eating. "It wasn't specifically an eating disorder," he said. 'It was a control thing. Every area of my life was so regimented and controlled, it was the one area where I could say, 'No, I'm not eating that.' Once I got over the control, the eating just came back into place, super naturally."

Then, Malik decided to choose his words more carefully. "Not super naturally!" he said. "Just really naturally. I came back to the UK and spent some time with my mum and got some TLC, and she cooked me food and I got back in touch, mentally, with a lot of the things I'd lost."

After taking some time for R&R, Zayn said he's feeling like himself again -- attributing his troubles to the experience in One Direction. "I now have no problem with anxiety," Malik said. "It was something I was dealing with in the band." Read more here.

George Michael To Have Private Funeral

"Most guests will be told what's going on a few hours beforehand. The idea is to avoid them being mobbed by fans trying to get a glimpse of their idol's farewell," reports The Sun. Read more here.

"One foot in the door, one foot in the grave/ One stepped on the floor, two stepped out the way/ Two glares up at one, what y'all wanna say?/ One stares back at two, two is unafraid," he raps, reflecting the jazz piano's staccato rhythm before he explodes into a cadence that mirrors the punches the man throws.

Now we can always remember @drakkardnoir by gazing upon Drake's shoulder. Tattoo artist Niki Norberg took to social media to show off some recent work he did for the Canadian rapper.

One shoulder features a hibiscus flower, which Drake has been using to symbolize his new project More Life. The other shoulder features a bottle of Drakkar Noir, which is a French cologne, but was also Drizzy's Twitter handle before he was able to secure @Drake (via XXL).

In 1991 Drakkar was the best-selling men's fragrance over $20 and quickly became a punchline for comedians around the world. Check out Drake's new ink here.
