Believe it not, singer Zayn Malik says an alien told him to leave the boy band, One Direction.

The 23-year-old singer said the first time he realized he wanted to embark on a solo career was when an extraterrestrial being spoke to him in dreams, reported E! online.

“An alien spoke to me in a dream,” Zayn said.
