There have been rampant rumors of person troubles for months, and Zayn Malik has now officially quit the current One Direction tour and flown back home to England.
The temporary departure comes just as the Philippine Government’s Bureau of Immigration demanded that Zayn and bandmate Louis Tomlinson pay a $5,000 “weed bond” to ensure that they don’t do drugs during their weekend of concerts.

Blessing the world with some of his sublime social commentary, Kanye West sat down with Clique TV in Paris, France for an entertaining and insightful interview this week.
The “Love Lockdown” rapper discussed the topic of racism in the world- “Racism is a dated concept. It’s like a silly concept that people touch on to try to separate, to alienate, to pinpoint anything. It’s stupid. It’s like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats or something.

They hit it big with their single “Blurred Lines” back in 2013, but unfortunately Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have been found guilty of copyright infringement and ordered to pay Marvin Gaye’s estate a whopping $7.3 million.
The jury of eight members found that the sexually explicit ditty was too similar to Gaye’s 1977 track “Got To Give It Up,” and handed down the decision on Tuesday (March 10).
