We guess normal isn't for everyone.

Zayn Malik has been all over everyone's lips lately — especially Gigi Hadid's!

Not only has the 23-year-old's first solo single Pillowtalk topped iTunes charts in 60 different countries since its release on Friday, but the young singer has also been opening up about his past with One Direction.

While in one interview, Malik chatted a bit about how he never wanted to be in the boy band, he seemed to backtrack a bit later as he dished that he was "massively grateful".

Well now Zayn is opening up about life after 1D — and the idea that he wanted to be "a normal 22-year-old." The Pillowtalk singer dished to Capital FM:

"[Being normal] worked out for about two weeks and I got bored of it. I don't think I could ever go back to being completely normal. I guess that's something I accepted, that this is as normal as it gets for me."

It sure sounds like Malik is ready to embrace his fame!

Seeing as how he's got a steamy video with his rumored GF, a current hit song, and his first solo album Mind of Mine coming in March, it's a good thing too!

What do you think of Zayn getting "bored" with a normal life?
