Boy bander no more: Zayn Malik has become the first former One Direction member to nab a Moon Person for a solo project.
Malik, 24, took home the prize for best collaboration at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday for his hit track with Taylor Swift, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” His former bandmate Harry Styles was also nominated at the awards show for best collaboration for best visual effects and best pop for “Sign of the Times.”
Neither Malik nor Swift was present to accept the award, though Malik later tweeted.
