HE WENT TO A KODALINE CONCERT? HOW MUCH MORE CAN I LOVE YOU, STYLES
As the cult of personality grew for each member of the group, Zayn was slated as the ‘Bad Boy’ due to his tattoos and smoking. However, one thing didn’t click. When other members of the group were pictured out partying, drinking, getting tattoos and flirting with other girls they weren’t given the label of bad boy. They were still able to maintain their label without a problem. I wasn’t able to place my discomfort with this until I came across the now infamous article about Zayn ‘Pimping Islam on Your Daughters’ (one can already assume whose ‘daughters’ this author meant). The author of this article came to the conclusion that because Zayn practices Islam and has arabic tattoos, he is a Jihadist terrorist and is trying to convert young girls into a dangerous religion. Zayn is seen as the bad boy because he is othered from his bandmates and friends. Similar to this author, we are projecting images of ‘mysteriousness’ and ‘dangerous’ onto Zayn much easier than someone like Harry, who is notoriously said to be a womanizer, but, we still view him as the loveable curly-headed one.
