Zayn Malik Reveals What He'd Be Doing If He Wasn't a Singer

Zayn Malik is looking hot hot hot on the cover of VMAN 38.

Here’s what the 24-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On what he would be doing if he wasn’t a famous singer: “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—obviously, I’m a songwriter—so, it would’ve been something that would still give me the feeling of a creative outlet within my writing.”

On what to expect from his new music: “I hope people get an insight to me as a person, because I’m not the most open book in terms of my personal life. I hope people get an understanding of where I’m coming from or what I’m thinking and what I’m going through, and feel closer to me through that. I just want my music to speak for me, and if it does that successfully, then I’m happy with what I achieve.”

On not revealing too much about himself and his faith religion: “My faith is between me and God, and whatever that God is, that’s between me and them. That’s where I draw the line: the specifics. I am a spiritual person and I do believe that everything happens for a reason, so I do have faith in something. I just don’t wish to specify what that is. I don’t want anybody to feel like I’m trying to dictate or wave my opinion on anything. I’m just doing what I’m doing. My religion, or whatever that is, is between me and God, and that’s just how I want to keep it.”
