Award shows, they bring the stars together, right? Last night both Niall Horan and Zayn Malik were in the building for the AMAs. Niall was performing as a solo artist and Zayn was up for best new artist, so there were a lot of questions as to whether or not the two would interact.
As many people know Zayn quit the band and seemed to leave on pretty salty terms. He said it was due to anxiety but shortly after he came out as a solo artist, so it’s just a little confusing. Niall stuck it out with the band and is out on his own at the moment, no word on a One Direction reunion in the near future.
Last night though, it looked like Niall was going to be the bigger person and as he walked by Zayn shook his hand. Again Zayn has been pretty open with the fact no one from the band spoke to him after he left. I can’t blame them, I would be pissed too. So it was nice to see Niall going out of his way to say hi to Zayn, considering they were a band together for like six years or something crazy like that.
In the video it looks to be like Zayn barely even acknowledged Niall though, and he wouldn’t have reached out first. I don’t like Zayn by the way, let me just throw that out there.
Sweet baby angel Niall made sure to say hi to him though, how sweet.
Zayn then went on to win New Artist of the year and kind of threw shade at One Direction, asking if it was just his name on the award. Fuck off Zayn.
So what do you think, did Zayn ignore Niall or am I overreacting? Let me know!
