Zayn Malik may be concentrating on his impending nuptials, and the One Direction star does seem to be fully committed to his new fiancé Perrie Edwards, however being in a serious relationship doesn’t mean that he can’t party.

The ‘Little Things’ singer returned to New York this week with his bandmates to promote their new movie ‘This Is Us’ and apparently Zayn partied so hard at a showbiz bash, that he was hung over the next day and forgot the words of a song during a live performance.

Malik had to get up at 5am to perform on The Today Show with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles but Radar Online claim that he cancelled all other interviews that day, because he was feeling so ill.

His solo segment didn’t go to plan either, as he forgot his words on the massively popular show.

Zayn had been up to all hours, partying with Bajan beauty Rihanna at a star studded pre-VMA party at NYC’s Stage 48 and apparently there were too many cocktails consumed all round.

A source told the website that Zayn “stayed at the bash for several hours” and returned to his plush hotel room not long before he received a wake-up call just after 4.30am.

The One Direction singers began their live performance with their hit song Kiss You, but despite performing the song hundreds of times before, Zayn got the words mixed up. Louis wasn’t too sympathetic and laughed at his pal’s mistake.

Zayn was due to be interviewed later on the Morgan and Maddy Show on Radio Disney at 10 am, but just before 10.30 the presenters revealed on air that he had called in sick. They also tweeted:

“Bad news guys…@zaynmalik had to cancel all of his interviews for today. He’s not feeling well. Hopefully he feels better soon.”

Meanwhile, Harry Styles has been explaining why he hates being labelled as famous.

In a new interview (video below) the curly haired cutie admitted that he hates being known for being famous and not for the kind of person he is and he hates that his celebrity status eclipses everything else in his life.

The deep thinking singer explained:

“I feel like when people label people as famous, they take away a lot of substance that they have as a person. You don’t remember someone as ‘he was funny’ or ‘they were really nice and giving.'”

Styles continued:

“It’s like ‘they were famous’ and then it becomes anything after that, whatever you choose to do after, if it’s not as famous or more famous than it was before, you’re considered a failure. It’s such a shame.”

    I thought they mimed to all their songs on stage!
    How could he ‘forget’ the words!

      Shows that they actually sang live then… Which is nothing new.
      Harry took one word out of his WMYB solo, changed one word for Little Things too, Zayn sang the wrong lyrics to Kiss you… Which only fans noticed of course. They didn’t mime! They are capable singers, they might not have Leona’s voice, but they can sing their songs.

    That’s not true at all. Zayn left his hotel at midnight but came back at 2 am. Many fans who were camped out outside their hotel saw him return and posted pictures on twitter. Update accounts also posted pics. And then there were pictures of him with some guy in a private apartment. Unless Rihanna hosted a party in a private apartment, he never went to a party, never even met her. They didn’t greet each other at the VMAs either. I think some paparazzi guy made up the whole story.

    Miming is a big no, no. They do it on TV but when people pay big money to see a performer live they want the real deal. Justen B did that in England on a show and he caught a lot of flack for it.

    Zayn has had trouble before forgetting lyrics. And it wasn’t because he had been drinking.
