Zayn Malik wants you to get to know the real him — but that doesn’t necessarily mean on social media!
Featured on the cover of VMAN 38 (photographed by Inez and Vinoodh), the 24-year-old opened up about a variety of things like what to expect from his new music, what he’d be if he wasn’t a singer, and how he really feels about social media.
“It’s become ridiculous to me. Even angles of pictures can’t be taken a certain way because that’s not the cool way to take an angle of a picture. Everyone’s personal opinions and what they believe in, how can you amalgamate all of that into one thing and expect that not to create a problem for people’s minds? That’s my personal opinion, [that] it’s not really that developing for us as people. That for me is the main reason why I don’t believe in [social media]: because I believe it breeds sheep and not lions.”
So why does he keep his accounts, you ask?
To interact with his fans about his music, of course!
“I think about that quite a lot. I think about alternative realities. I think I’d be at university and I would have done my English degree. I think I’d be looking for some employment to do with English lecturing or literature. I love poetry and writing├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥obviously, I’m a songwriter├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥so, it would’ve been something that would still give me the feeling of a creative outlet within my writing.”
That makes sense!
