Zayn Malik left One Direction to focus on himself, and he's focusing on his #selfie in the September issue of Interview magazine...his shirtless selfie.

Interview's September #SELFIE issue will feature eight different covers, including Zayn. The issue honors 100 of the most powerful personalities on the internet, and will feature selfies from social media all-stars Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian West (who's also shirtless on her cover, as you can see below), Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Madonna and fashion photographer Mert Alas.

“We just asked people to imagine their ultimate self portraits — whether it was highly produced or a simple selfie,” Interview editor in chief Keith Pollock said (quote via WWD). “We wanted to see how they see themselves and how they want to be seen. We allowed each subject to imagine their own shoots.”

Zayn's been pretty busy lately: He's dishing out shady retweets, living the post-Perrie single life in L.A., changing his hair a whole lot and hanging out with '90s rap stars. If none of that sounds "productive" to you, let us remind you that he's also signed with RCA and he's hired a high-profile manager, so we'll ostensibly hear Zayn at his most authentic (#realmusic) in the coming months.

Interview's #SELFIE issue hits stands this week — check out Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian's covers below.
