New York, Jun 20 (PTI) Singer Zayn Malik says it is tough for him to go anywhere without being recognised.

The 24-year-old who is dating supermodel Gigi Hadid says that in New York it is hard to escape attention unlike Los Angeles, reported Female First.

“In New York (where Gigi is based), you can sometimes get out in the early hours of the morning for a walk.

“But there’s no underground parking here, no escape routes. So they’re going to get pictures, they’re going to find you. In LA [his own usual US base], it’s more catered to these things – you’ve got back entrances and that. It’s a really weird world. I don’t think there’s anywhere I could be anonymous now,” he said.

The singer, however, said having a celebrity partner helps him cope up with the attention.
