Zayn has become the year's hottest new cover boy, and his magazine interviews keep getting more interesting.
"I'm still probably the closest to Liam," Zayn told the U.K. magazine. "We talk on the phone. He congratulated me on my single, which was nice. I congratulated him on his Brit Award. It was a good chat."
But it sounds like both artists have been way too busy lately to get in any face time. "We haven't met up in a long time so we want to meet up,” said Zayn.
Actually, he hasn’t been able to meet up with any of his former bandmates: "I tried to have contact but nobody's reached out. So...whatever.” Uh-oh.
Zayn, who will release his debut solo album, Mind of Mine, this Friday (March 25), also rocked a return to the buzzcut on his NME cover.
