Zayn Malik is really branching out on his own now! The singer appears alone (and shirtless!) on the cover of ‘Interview’ Magazine’s newest issue and has fans speculating that he may be launching a new Instagram account. Get the scoop here!
Just because he isn’t in One Direction anymore doesn’t mean Zayn Malik, 22, won’t be a force to be reckoned with! Interview even named him one of the most powerful presences in social media, and he’s featured shirtless, looking oh-so-sexy, on the mag’s newest cover.
Zayn is just one star to be featured on the cover of Interview‘s #ME Issue, which will include eight alternate celebs. Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Madonna and Mert Alas are reportedly the others who will grace the cover.
The #ME issue honors ‘100 of the most powerful personalities on the Internet,’ and Zayn’s cover has sparked speculation among fans that he’ll soon be making a new Instagram! The handle “@Zayn” appears at the bottom of the artwork, and that account exists on the social media site, although there are no photos posted. Plus, his old Instagram account no longer has a ‘verified’ check mark — very telling!t
Interestingly, even though the former boy-bander — who’s featured on 1D’s album Four, which you can buy here — is being honored for his social presence, he hasn’t tweeted since Aug. 18. Perhaps he was waiting for the magazine to be released to make his social media comeback on Instagram?! Looks like we’ll have to wait and see!
This whole thing is a pretty big deal, though, because Interview will be Zayn’s first solo cover since he left 1D, and creating an Instagram account might mean he’s ready to interact with fans more — and that he may have something new to start promoting. The 22-year-old has been teasing us for months about how excited he is to get working on his solo career, so we’re more anxious than ever to hear what he’s been working on.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers: what do you think of Zayn appearing on the Interview cover? Do you like his shirtless look?
