So what are we up to, our third celebrity throwing shade of the day?

Zayn Malik picked up an American Music Award for New Artist of the Year at Sunday night’s ceremony, but rather than just being happy for his own little self, he had to take the opportunity to take a dig at his former One Direction bandmates. 

As he jumped on stage to collect his gong – smiling, actually smiling! Wonders will never cease – he grinned cheekily before saying: “This one just has my name on it, right?”

And if you think it was all a bit of a laugh, check out the tweet below; you can actually hear the crowd sucking in their breath.

Also, can we just point out, NIALL WAS IN THE AUDIENCE THE ENTIRE TIME.


How dare you upset wee Niall, Zayn. How very dare you.
