Zayn Malik might be making more enemies than friends in his attempt to launch a solo career. Earlier today, Zayn retweeted a post that ripped Taylor Swift’s decision to remove her music from Spotify.
Taylor’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, wasn’t having the shade and took to Twitter to fire back at the former One Direction member. “@FemaleTexts @zaynmalik You’ve made your money? Cool…f**k the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f**k em.”
Calvin swiftly began to backtrack on his earlier statements and wished Zayn nothing but the best. “@zaynmalik best of luck, genuinely. You’ve got a great voice.” Zayn, however, was not having any of it. He ended the feud with another zinger, “Oh and I write my own sh*t too d*ckhead.”
Of course, it does seem that both Zayn and Calvin might be players in a slightly larger battle going on behind the scenes. Zayn was retweeting a comment that was as positive about Miley Cyrus as it was negative toward Taylor, and we have lately seen Miley calling out Taylor as a “role model” in the current issue of Marie Claire. Also, Taylor just featured the band Little Mix at her last concert, and Little Mix has been throwing disses pretty frequently in Zayn’s direction since his breakup with band member Perrie Edwards.
So we’re guessing that this Twitter beef might be part of tensions involving a few other notable celebs who – at this point – have managed to refrain from tweeting . . .
Do you think it was right of Calvin to have Taylor’s back? Or do you think Zayn’s perspective is justified in preferring Miley’s stance over Taylor’s?
