Zayn says no to diva antics

Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards like to stay down-to-earth and won't pander to "diva" behaviour.

The Little Mix singer is engaged to the One Direction star, who is currently on his Take Me Home Tour with bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.

Due to their status as a high-profile couple, the news of Zayn's proposal was splashed all over the papers and 20-year-old Perrie admits their lives aren't always easy.

"When you’re in this industry life’s never going to be normal. As much as you try," she confessed to British newspaper The Metro.

"I do whatever I want. I go shopping all the time. I go out for food. Go out with my mates. I do everything normally but obviously Zayn is really famous so it’s harder for him but we still do what we want to do. We like to stay grounded and be normal people and not act like divas.

"I’m not like, 'Oh, I am going to be so mobbed today and everyone is going to take my photo.' I don’t see myself like that."

Zayn, also 20, recently revealed he proposed to Perrie while they were watching a film with family and friends in the back garden.

They haven't had time to finalise details, but Perrie insists that when they do marry, it will be "old fashioned".

"I haven’t started planning the wedding yet," she revealed.

"I will get an idea of what I want once I have a date. Right now we are so busy. They’re so busy, we’re so busy so I haven’t got the time but as soon as I am ready I will let everyone know."

The blonde star recently revealed her bandmates Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall will act as bridesmaids.

Picking the rest of the line-up could be more difficult for her.

"All my family are girls," she mused. "It’s going to be really hard. I don’t have any boys in my family."
