Fame is one of the scariest things in the world to me. Why? Because I wouldn’t want to live in a fish bowl and I definitely wouldn’t want to live in one like the members of One Direction did.

So at a certain point I thought, I’m just going to have a party-for-one and that seemed to carry on for many years of my life… It was wild but it was the only way you could get frustration out.”
I definitely feel for him. No one should have to feel this way.
