Monday, August 17 (9:36 p.m. ET) Louis Tomlinson shows whose side he is on between the Calvin Harris and Zayn-Malik-throws-Twitter-shade-at-Calvin-Harris”>Zayn Malik Twitter feud. Malik and Harris spent yesterday evening squalling on Twitter after Malik retweeted a picture comparing Swift and Miley Cyrus.
On Cyrus’ photo was a quote from the singer about her Happy Hippie Foundation: “I’ve made my money”. “If no one buys my album, cool its fine”. “I don’t need anything else”, the pop singer supposedly said. The Tweeter noted that, “the difference is astounding” by way of commentary.
Harris has since backpedaled, and said that his comments were more on the quote than the now-solo artist, and even proceeded to complimenting his voice.
The post compared Swift’s view to the one provided by Cyrus in an interview with W magazine in February 2014.
“Meaning”, Harris continues, “Stay out of things you don’t understand”. In June, she also convinced Apple to pay artists during the free 3-month trial of their music streaming service, Apple Music. He tweeted at Malik.
Calvin Harris embraces Taylor Swift after she was honored at the Billboard Music Awards in May. He might be less concerned with being Team Miley or Team Taylor and more looking for a fight on Twitter for his own reasons. He also retaliated by getting personal at Harris according to TV3.
“FemaleTexts zaynmalik You’ve made your money?”
It was the perfect storm of celebrity social media, so perfect that it might have been scripted.
Well just look at what you’ve done to Harry Styles.
“Ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate”, he writes.
Zayn hit back by accusing Calvin of not understanding what he was referring to either and adding: ‘I suggest you calm them knickers before your dentures fall out’. “Oh and I write my own sh-t too d-khead”, he concluded.
Both kept at it for a while on Twitter until Harris seemingly cooled down, responding to Malik “all good, it was the quote not you personally” before apparently apologising: “best of luck, genuinely”.
