Zayn Malik might have said that he quit One Direction to be “a normal 22 year old”, but it seems like what he actually meant is that he quit to become a professional Little Mix groupie, with the singer scarcely leaving his fiancée, Perrie Edwards’, side as she embarks on a promotional tour with her bandmates.
We mean, that’s a normal 22 year old type thing to do, isn’t it?
The Bradford bad boi was spotted in Leeds with Pez as Little Mix continue to promote their long-awaited new single, ‘Black Magic’, and by the look of things, he won’t be leaving anytime soon.
Ah, young love… Or something like that.
Perrie faced the wrath of 1D fans when she was blamed for Zayn’s shock departure from the band back in March, gaining the unaffectionate nickname of this generation’s ‘Yoko Ono’ in the process.
Still, the 21 year old remains defiant in the face of haterz, recently telling Hunger TV: “Our relationships are no one’s business but our own.
“At the start you want to try and fix it, and run around telling everyone that rumours aren’t true, but now it’s just not worth it.
“Let it go, if people believe it, then whatever.”
And it looks as though she really means what she says, with the star causing a Twitter meltdown yesterday when Little Mix posted a Snapchat that saw Perrie refer to herself as ‘Perrie Malik’.
Unimpressed fans were quick to accuse her of using her famous beau for promotional purposes and it looks like the backlash did not go unnoticed by the band, with the snap suspiciously disappeared before the usual 24 hour expiration date.
To quote Mean Girls, Perrie: Don’t let the haters stop you from doing your thang.
