Zayn Malik reportedly partied all night Thursday with Rihanna, prompting him to appear hungover Friday morning during One Direction's appearance on the "Today" show. Zayn even forgot the words during his live solo performance. Malik just made headlines this week when he announced his engagement to Perrie Edwards of girl group Little Mix, but that apparently didn't stop the 20-year-old from partying all night with wild-child Rihanna. The One Direction singer even canceled all of his interviews for the rest of the day after his morning show appearance, according to Radar Online on Aug. 23.
Even though Zayn Malik just got engaged, that doesn’t mean he’s settling down just yet. Only three days ago he was walking the red carpet with his new fiancée at the London premiere of "One Direction: This Is Us".
But Zayn appeared hungover for the band’s big live performance on the Today show this morning, where an estimated 18,000 fans packed the plaza to shed tears and watch the One Direction mates sing.
A source told Radar that Zayn headed to a pre-VMA party at NYC’s Stage 48 with Rihanna and other hip hop stars shortly before midnight Thursday.
Malik allegedly stayed at the bash for several hours, and wasn't spotted returning to his hotel room prior to the "Today" show's 4:30 wake-up call.
Zayn screwed up the lyrics twice as his band mates laughed. He was later due to call in to the "Morgan and Maddy Show" on Radio Disney at 10 a.m., but at 10:26 the show announced he’d called in sick.
"Bad news guys" read a tweet from the show, "@zaynmalik had to cancel all of his interviews for today. He’s not feeling well. Hopefully he feels better soon".
But fans who witnessed his earlier flubs called him out on the illness, taking to Twitter to accuse him of being hungover instead.
It's interesting to note that only band member Louis is of legal age to drink in the U.S.. You can see Zayn's under the weather performance by clicking here.
No word yet on whether Zayn's supposed all-night party with Rihanna has landed him in trouble with his new fiancée yet. Stay tuned.
