How Zayn Malik Is Shifting The Narrative Of Men With Eating Disorders
Huffington Post - 4 months
“Something I’ve never talked about in public before, but which I have come to terms with since leaving the band, is that I was suffering from an eating disorder.” These are the powerful words Zayn Malik shares in his new autobiography, Zayn. That’s right: one of the most visible and popular male pop stars (a man of color, at that) has admitted to having issues with food. This is huge. In an excerpt from the book posted by MTV on Tuesday, Malik admitted that his eating disorder was “quite serious,” exacerbated by the pressures of fame that came with being in the biggest boy band in the UK.  “It wasn’t as though I had any concerns about my weight or anything like that.

Pedestrian TV - almost 5 years
Dozens of Aussie celebs have been nominated in PETA’s annual search for the world’s sexiest vegetarian. Among them are noted Aussie vegos Lindsay ‘The Doctor” McDougall, Isabel Lucas and Andrew G as well as a few celebrities who we had no idea were vegetarian: Adalita, Abbie Cornish, Shuan Micallef, The Church’s Steve Kilbey, Sia, Portia de Rossi, Sophie Monk, Xavier Rudd (actually not that surprising), model Myf Shepherd, Missy Higgins, Marieke Hardy, Imogen Bailey, Deni Hines, Daniel Johns, Ash Grunwald and two members of Cut Copy (Tim Hooey and Mitchell Scott) and Tame Impala (Dominic Simper and Kevin Parker). This isn’t so much a call to vote as a chance for us to go “wow, we had no idea YOU were vegetarian”. I mean, Shuan Micallef? We didn’t see that one coming. The winner will be decided through four different categories: votes received, the celebrity’s commitment to vegetarianism, PETA’s assessment of their attractiveness, and the media-friendliness of their personality ...
