Zayn Malik Throws Some Little Mix Shade

We know what you were doing, Zayn.

Sometimes breakups can be a clean cut, but when your life is followed this closely by the media, the fallout can seem like it lasts forever. And the recent shade that Zayn Malik threw at ex-fiance Perrie Edwards on Sunday is dragging it out even longer.

It was a subtle move, but the former One Direction singer dissed Edwards' band Little Mix with a single retweet. Zayn retweeted one of those "RT for this, FAV for that" tweets, which just so happened to pit Little Mix against American group Fifth Harmony.

First of all, 5H and LM can't be compared, because they're both perfect in my eyes. Secondly, Zayn's allowed to RT whatever he wants, but this definitely seems pointed. Why not avoid retweeting and favoriting all together?

If you remember, Perrie reportedly did something similar during an interview with Radio Disney earlier this month when she named One Direction's Zayn-less track "Drag Me Down" her favorite song of the summer.

Anyway, Zayn kept tweeting after that, but only posting selfies throughout the night. The British crooner is in the U.S. now (he was supposedly looking at houses in L.A.) and has been hanging out with Redman and Method Man after seeing their show in Las Vegas.

As for Perrie, she and her Little Mix mates performed at the Teen Choice Awards last night, convincing us that they might actually be witches, after they pulled a lightning-fast costume change onstage, transforming themselves from super-nerds to mega babes in seconds.
