Another week, another Twitter feud. This time it's Zayn Malik and Calvin Harris who've drawn handbags over a perceived slight against the DJ's girlfriend Taylor Swift.
It all kicked off after Malik retweeted a post critical of Swift's refusal to stream her music on Spotify.
Harris then dutifully jumped in to defend his girlfriend before the whole thing quickly deteriorated into a war of words. Or to be precise war of tweets.
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...— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) August 17, 2015
...stay out my fuckin mentions pls— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) August 17, 2015
Meaning...stay out of things you don't understand— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) August 17, 2015
That prompted the former One Direction singer to reply, “ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate … you clearly didn’t understand what I just said either.” It then got real between the 22 and 31 year old with this dig.
@CalvinHarris so i suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
Oh and I write my own shit too dickhead— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
It all wound down eventually after Harris responded with, “all good, it was the quote not you personally mate", he even threw a “lol” in for good measure. It all ended on a nice conciliatory note after Harris tweeted “@zaynmalik best of luck, genuinely. You've got a great voice.” Phew!
So after Malik and Harris, Taylor and Minaj, Kanye West and eh everyone.....the only question is who's next?
