ZAYN! Mr Malik strips off for the new issue of Interview magazine


OK, so we've seen him topless plenty of times before. But that certainly doesn't mean that we don't welcome with open arms another, brand new topless shot of Zayn Malik.

Which is why we got pretty excited upon seeing the September issue of Interview magazine.

Featuring a selection of high-profile names – the likes of Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham and Miley Cyrus all have their own respective covers too – Zayn's shot shows him lying back on a bed, his shirtless body on full display. 

Branded the #ME issue, Interview is this month honouring 150 of the most powerful social media stars from the worlds of entertainment, music and fashion.

And there's no doubt that Mr Malik certainly holds plenty of social media sway.

On Instagram, and despite being a fairly sporadic user, the former One Directioner has 1.8million followers. Meanwhile, over on Twitter that number has hit a cool 15.6million.

From spats with Calvin Harris, to favouriting week-old pictures of Kylie Jenner, and following Selena Gomez, his social media activity is certainly chronicled and commented upon with earnest.

So it's no surprise that the 22-year-old has been singled out by the influential publication.

Last month, Interview featured Justin Bieber on its cover – and for this month, the eight cover stars have been given creative freedom over the images used in the issue.

So we guess it's safe to say that Zayn must like being topless. We support that entirely.
