Star Spotting: Zayn Malik Takes A Sleepy Picture Of Niall Horan, And It’s Too Cute To Be Creepy

Ever wondered what One Direction's Niall Horan looked like fast asleep? Now, thanks to Zayn Malik, you can see!

Yes, that is Niall Horan, and yes, he’s sleeping in sunglasses and a baseball cap. Ain’t no thang.

What’s that they say? Payback’s a b****? Yep, that is precisely what they say, plus that whole “karma is a boomerang” principal. Well, both are ringing especially true for One Direction‘s Niall Horan right now. Because do you remember when Niall took this epic selfie with his drooling, sleeping friend in the background? Well, guess Niall shouldn’t have fallen asleep anywhere in the vicinity of fellow prankster and One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik, because as you can see, Zayn is in no way opposed to taking pics of Niall while he’s asleep on the tour bus! Also, let’s just point out (you know, for emphasis) that the kid is fully conked out wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap.

Honestly, the whole “taking a sleeping picture of someone” thing should technically score super high on the “you’re a creep!” meter, but there’s just something about Niall’s adorable, peaceful face that makes us categorize this in the “cute” section of our brains. Along with the photo of a clearly pooped Niall taking a snooze, Zayn captioned, “check this diva out!! asleep with his shades on pfft ha !! :) x.” Not sure why, but we have a sneaking suspicion that if Zayn had taken this photo about one minute later, a significant dribble of drool would be sliding down that diva’s mouth. Also, sorry for saying the word “drool” before lunch.
