British-Muslim singer and songwriter Zayn Malik seems to be considering new career options in the field of politics ... in the United States.
The 25-year-old pop star recently appeared on GQ's latest cover, stating that he may consider running for office in his "new home."
"Maybe. It'd be cool. I feel like it's a beautiful place," he said.
Malik first moved to Los Angeles in 2015, after his dramatic departure from the British boy band One Direction. He has since managed to carve out a solid solo career, and recently moved to New York.
"No matter what color, what gender, what sexuality, what class - none of that matters here. People genuinely want to know you for who you are. And that's how America should be represented across the world," Malik told GQ.
Malik's arrival in the U.S. came at a time when President Donald Trump was drafting a Muslim Ban with an aim to block immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.
Malik was born to a Pakistani Muslim father and a British convert mother. The singer has been faced with threats on several occasions due to his Muslim heritage.
He has also been accused of "pimping Islam" by right-wing bloggers, and labeled alongside his former bandmates in "One Direction" of promoting "boyband jihad."
