Zayn Malik Denies ‘Naked’ Tweet Was About Perrie Edwards

Right. So we need to talk about Zayn Malik’s Tweets last night.

The 23-year-old singer got us all confused when he took to the site to muse: ‘Love how people feel liberated naked .. Read a book liberate your brain [sic].’

He then clarified: ‘This is not shade …’

He then re-Tweeted a message from a fan, which read: ‘I think what Zayn meant to say was he loves that people feel liberated naked and the people who shame them should liberate their brain.’

So that’s all sorted, yeah? Nope. Things didn’t end there – Zayn’s current girlfriend Gigi Hadid also ended up getting involved. Crikey.

When a follower told her she should ‘take Zayn’s phone away,’ she replied: ‘? I’d agree that anyone who doesn’t love seeing someone feel liberated, in however way they chose, needs to be more open minded [sic].’
