Was Zayn just making a general statement about music downloading though...or does he have a legit beef with Taylor?
We're not so sure we should read into it that much, but check out the tweet from @FemaleTexts, who writes "the difference is astounding." She calls out Taylor's perspective on music services and streaming as compared to Miley, who says, "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."
Zayn followed up the retweet with: "G statement."

Is it a diss? Or just a similar philosophy he shares? After all, he's made loads of money with One Direction, so he really doesn't need to worry about album sales with his solo career.

Taylor fans are up in arms and those who were on board for a Zayn collab with Selena Gomez think she'll never hook up with him on a project now!
I hope that Selena doesn't follow Zayn back, He's being childish— Pablo (@PabloOyaneder) August 17, 2015
Zayn just shaded Taylor! He can forget that selena follow! 😂— . (@QxeenRna) August 17, 2015
Zayn also tweeted a rather cryptic message about himself, we assume: "Nothing changed you just never knew."
There's no chance of selena and zayn dating bc he shaded taylor 👀 y'all can chill now— maham (@fallingforyous) August 17, 2015
Then things got majorly heated with Taylor's bf, Calvin Harris.

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
Zayn's response wasn't pretty:
@CalvinHarris ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
@CalvinHarris you clearly didn't understand what I just said either— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
@CalvinHarris so i suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
Calvin clarified and things seemed to settle a bit:
Oh and I write my own shit too dickhead— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
@zaynmalik all good, it was the quote not you personally mate— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) August 17, 2015
@zaynmalik best of luck, genuinely. You've got a great voice— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) August 17, 2015
