23-year-old normal 22-year-old Zayn Malik will release his debut solo single 'Pillowtalk' next Friday, according to a tits-out image he posted online this morning.
If you look at how, for instance, Huffington Post have covered this news, you'll see that they've managed to drag it out over nine paragraphs, but the fact of the matter is that the only real 'news' has been covered in our first paragraph, so it seems silly to try and spin it any further. But how do you, the reader, feel about this? Are you pleased that we've just delivered the facts in an efficient manner, or have you come to expect all music news stories to come with a severe amount of padding? You can see the temptation — services like Facebook and Google will reward longer articles, meaning that more people see them, and this in turn means more traffic for news websites. And in some cases that makes perfect sense, because the thinking is that these algorithms reward substance. But isn't it also rewarding news websites for wasting their readers' time?
Anyway the Zayn news coincides ('coincides') with The Sunday Times' exclusive-if-you-don't‑include-the-last-one interview and cover shoot, which you can read here if you pay their astronomical subscription fee.
UPDATE: It's about FUCKING. Here is a quote from Zayn about that.
"Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.”
