No Chill Zayn needs to get a time-out from Twitter or atleast stay away from the retweet option. The former One Direction band mate got into yet another squabble on Twitter on Monday, Aug. 17 with Calvin Harris — it’s every week with Zayn.
The online standoff started when Malik retweeted a post from the account @FemaleTexts that negatively compared Swift and Miley Cyrus’ views on paying for music, it read: ”the difference is astounding,” and featured images of Swift and Cyrus. Next to Swift’s picture was a quote she said about why she removed her music from streaming on Spotify. The quote read: ”[People] can still listen to my music if they get it on iTunes. I’m always up for trying something. And I tried it and I didn’t like the way it felt. I think there should be an inherent value placed on art.”
While Cyrus’ picture had a statement the singer made regarding herHappy Hippie Foundation, reading: “I’ve made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It’s fine. I’ve got a house, and I’ve got dogs that I love. I don’t need anything else.”
Harris came to his girlfriend’s rescue, “@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,” the Scottish DJ tweeted at Malik, in reference to streaming services like Spotify.
In a follow-up tweet, he added: “If u don’t get what it means when a successful artist uses their celebrity to benefit every other musician and songwriter in the industry…stay out my f—kin mentions pls.”
“Meaning…stay out of things you don’t understand,” the scot concluded.
Malik, 22, being no stranger to online bickering replied soon after, “@CalvinHarris ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate,” he tweeted, adding, “you clearly didn’t understand what I just said either…so I suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out…Oh and I write my own s—t too d—knead,” he concluded, referencing Calvin’s recent successful ad as an Armani underwear model.
31-year-old DJ acknowledged that he was up against a master at twitter feuds bowed out with a simple “lol,” before waving the white flag. “@zaynmalik all good, it was the quote not you personally mate…best of luck, genuinely. You’ve got a great voice.”
Malik is well known by now for his Twitter clashs. On Sunday, the “Best Song Ever” crooner bashed his ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards’ group Little Mix online. Malik retweeted a tweet that read: “Which is the better single? Retweet – ‘Worth It’ by Fifth Harmony. Favorite – ‘Black Magic’ by Little Mix.”
Anyway, Taylor who is also no stranger to bashes wisely took the high road and left the badgering to the boys.
