Fans seem to be pretty opinionated over the issue of Malik’s facial hair (or lack, thereof), but we reckon they should give the guy a break.

After all, this is the first time in a long while he has had this much grooming freedom -  revealing to Highsnobiety that he had to ask permission to cut his hair or grow a beard back in his boyband days. A situation he deemed “ridiculous”.

Oh, and this one.

We feel you.
