Zayn Malik creates new Instagram: Fans lose their sh\*t

Zayn’s got a new Instagram account and some people can’t cope


by Ellie Henman |

So we all know Zayn Malik is going through a few changes at the moment. He left the biggest boyband in the world, allegedly dumped his hot pop-star girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, over text and is now trying to carve out a new career.

His every movement is scrutinised by his fans and when he decided to change his Instagram handle – all hell broke loose.

Has he deleted all traces of Perrie Edwards from his life, cried fans. Are all the BEST hot Zayn snaps gone forever, others asked…

No, they’re all still there (although according to his @niazkilam account it’s been 49 weeks since he last posted a picture) but he’s now got a shiny new account too.

Showing off his rather sultry, topless selfie for Interview, the singer posted a photograph of his cover under his new @zayn handle alongside the caption: “Check out my cover of @interviewmag's September issue.”

Hardly much to write home about.

But when he shared his new account on Twitter, fans went wild after he wrote next to the picture: “#ImComing”.

Now, they didn’t go wild for all the wrong reasons. Instead, they all stated to wonder if Zayn had, in fact, just released the title of his first solo single. HAS HE? We still have no idea – but as soon as we find out we’ll let you know.

Until then…Zayn’s biggest fans will be overjoyed he’s broken his 13 day Twitter silence and bereft that he’s finally moving on. And leaving them all hanging with that cryptic hashtag....
