Justin Bieber was leaving Bar 20 at the Grafton Hotel in West Hollywood Thursday when paparazzi gingerly asked how he felt about Zayn Malik leaving One Direction.
One question, asked, “Justin, how do you feel about Zayn leaving One Direction?”
To which, he didn’t give an answer. Most likely because he had a group of excitable, female fans to attend to.
The next question asked who Justin thought should replace Zayn’s spot in the successful boy band.
“Ah, I don’t know man. That sucks though. How many members now, four?”
As Justin stood talking with the fans on the sidewalk, he jokingly told the girls, “Zayn’s gone? Nooooooo! Not Zayn! That was my favorite Directioner.”
The fans who met Justin later took to Twitter to share pics of their encounter.
In a TMZ-obtained video [BELOW], a photographer is seen firing questions at Justin while he took selfies with fans after leaving Bar 20 at the Grafton Hotel in West Hollywood.
