Huge popstar looks totally unrecognisable as a woman in throwback music video shared by his mum | The Sun

MUSIC fans will be left scratching their heads when they see this video of a completely unrecognisable popstar.

The singer's mum shared the clip on social media but seemed more tickled by his "northern accent" than his appearance.

She captioned the footage: "His accent is sooo northern. Haha!"

The video was posted on Instagram by none other than Zayn Malik's mum – and it is the ex One Direction star.

Zayn had dressed up as his 'sexy secretary' alter-ego Veronica for the pop band's 2013 hit Best Song Ever.

In the backstage footage shared by his proud mum Trisha, Zayn is having his tattoos airbrushed over by a make-up artist.

He says: "My character doesn't have any tattoos."

Zayn, now 29, can then be seen staggering across the Best Song Ever video set in a pair of heels.

He is wearing a crisp white blouse, black pencil skirt, glasses and a long brunette wig.

"I can't walk like a lady, man. That's not going to happen," Zayn says.

At the time of the video shoot, Zayn was in a relationship with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.

She had shown her approval at the time by writing on Twitter: "Slightly worried that my new girl crush might be my boyfriend! #Iwould 😉 aha, LOVEIT Perrie <3."

Best Song Ever was released in July 2013 and was the lead single taken from One Direction's third album, Midnight Memories.

It rocketed to Number 2 in both the UK singles chart and America's Billboard Hot 100, making it the band's best selling single Stateside at that point.

All seemed rosy between the former X Factor stars at the time but, within two years, Zayn had quit One Direction.

The star took a break from the band – which was formed on the ITV show in 2010 – citing "stress" and left their world tour.

The remaining members of One Direction went their separate ways later in the year that Zayn left.

Zayn and ex bandmate Liam Payne have since shared their thoughts about each other in a public slanging match.

Following his exit, Zayn called the band's music "generic as f***" and claimed he "never really wanted to be there in the band".

Liam later shot back claiming he dislikes the 29-year-old for "many reasons" on a podcast interview with Logan Paul.

He has since backtracked, saying: "Zayn is my brother and I will stand by him forever."
