And his PAPER magazine cover is no exception - with the words that come out of his mouth also setting a few tongues wagging.

Speaking about his anxiety, which recently led him to cancel a huge headline show in the UK, Zayn commented: "I don't really enjoy going out too much and partying. I like to have my own time and be at home, and I kind of need a partner with me to do that. 

"I just like the security of that. It feels good tome. It feels right. We'll see each other tonight and probably watch a film. Netflix and chill.

"I've not been feeling too well recently because I've been partying too much and not looking after myself and eating enough food. I'm just trying to take care of myself."

Asked about his relationship with Gigi Hadid, Zayn explained how they like to go horse riding together, and that he finds her intelligence the most attractive about her.

"My girlfriend rides a little bit. Actually, that's an understatement. She rides very well, and she has since she was a kid. She wants me to do it with her, and I'm not good. But I'm learning, and it's fun.

"My first lesson was on a really old horse that didn't move very much, so it wasn't that scary. She was on the other horse, the one that moved a lot more. She was jumping over hurdles and I just sat there like, 'Ok, this is freaky.'

"I've always said it and I still stand by it: I find intelligence attractive. When I learn something from somebody and they teach me something, that's an attractive thing for me.

"Obviously, I find physical appearance attractive as well, but it's definitely squared more towards a personality as I've gotten older, because you can't have a long-term relationship unless you get on with the person. It doesn't matter really about the exterior."

And as for the sex part of the SEXY issue? "It wasn't a conscious decision to make [the album] sexual or refer to sex, but I just found out that a lot of situations that I was in were quite sexual situations -- all of the time. I enjoyed singing about [sex], clearly."

So there you go. Read the full interview in the latest issue of PAPER magazine.
