Zayn Malik and Calvin Harris Twitter Feud 2015

Calvin Harris and Zayn Malik Are in a Twitter Feud Over Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus

We definitely weren't expecting Calvin Harris to feud with a (former) member of One Direction, but that's exactly what happened on Monday when the DJ swooped in to defend his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, in a slightly confusing Twitter feud. Zayn Malik, who left One Direction back in March, retweeted a series of photos that seemed to compare Taylor's decision to pull her music from Spotify (and her open letter urging Apple Music to pay musicians during a three-month user trial) with a recent Miley Cyrus quote that read, "I've made my money. If no one buys my album, it's cool. It's fine. . . I don't need anything else."

Zayn followed up the retweet by seemingly referring to Miley's quote as a "G statement," which did not sit well with Taylor's current beau, Calvin. He responded with, "You've made your money? Cool. . . f*ck the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f*ck them."

Whoa. He then served up some education to Zayn and advised him to "stay out of" his mentions (we can't seem to find where Zayn mentioned Calvin).

Calvin went on to mention the Teen Choice Awards (One Direction took home eight of them on Sunday night), and alluded that he's been in his basement making your new favorite record:

Zayn told Calvin that he made a fool out of himself . . .

. . . Then implied that Calvin wears knickers and dentures! WTF?

After that, Calvin tried to get the conversation back on track by clarifying his original tweets:

To which Zayn replied:

Calvin threw out an "lol" and ended everything with a compliment:

If this is anything like Taylor's recent exchange with Nicki Minaj, we can probably look forward to an onstage invitation at the VMAs, a couple of public apologies, and maybe even a comment from Katy Perry.
