Zayn Malik of One Direction Crashes Scooter

Zayn Malik crashed an expensive scooter during a music video shoot, but don’t worry, One Direction fans — the 19-year-old wasn’t hurt. The same could not be said of the moped, which required some cover-up work to hide the resulting damage.

“I smashed up a Vespa,” Malik confirmed to Celebs on Sunday magazine, via Ace Showbiz. “I’m making this sound more glamorous than it actually was. It just spun out and went crazy, ran on about two meters and hit some gravel. And it was a limited edition, worth thousands. They had to put red nail polish on it to cover the scratches.”

His bandmate, Liam Payne, says Malik had no experience riding that type of vehicle. “He’d never driven a moped before and he had this brand new red one we were using in a video shoot — and crashed it,” Payne said. We can’t wait to see if the crash footage actually makes it into the video.

The best part of this story may be the news that another One Direction music video is on the way. The group’s first single, ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ has spent more than three months on the charts in the U.S. and remains lodged in the Top 10. In Britain, the guys have had four huge hits from their debut album, ‘Up All Night.’

One Direction are performing for young fans all across America at the moment, including first daughter Malia Obama, who checked out their concert in Virginia last week.
