Justin Bieber Playfully Pretends To Be Upset About Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction: “NOOOOO!” (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop has reported, Directioners’ are extremely upset over Malik’s exit. Some celebrities like Nick Jonas have expressed their understanding, while other stars have made fun of what they believe are exaggerated, melodramatic overreactions. So, where does Bieber fall on the spectrum? It seems he couldn’t care any less.
On Thursday night, Bieber had just stepped outside Bar 20 at the Grafton Hotel in West Hollywood when TMZ began firing off questions to him as he posed for photos with waiting fans. Naturally, one of those queries was about Malik’s departure, and Bieber pretended to be quite upset. “Zayn’s gone?!” the superstar exclaimed, feigning outrage and shock. “Nooooooo! Not Zayn!”
When asked who he thinks should replace Malik, Bieber replied, “Oh, I don’t know, man. That sucks, though. How many members are there now? Four?” While we have no doubt the singer actually knows the answer to that question, his indifference to the situation may stem from a dustup that took place earlier this week.
As Gossip Cop reported, a Twitter used called out Malik’s now-former colleague Liam Payne, tweeting to him, “@Real_Liam_Payne Isn’t it kinda depressing for you to know that Justin Bieber will always be more successful than you?” Payne fired back with a Bieber diss, replying, “how many times have I been arrested.” That was enough to spark a Twitter war between Beliebers and Directioners, though Bieber himself never commented on the debacle.
But Bieber’s reaction to the Malik situation now is potentially very telling. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
