Zayn Malik does not keep up on the drama.
In a new interview, the “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” singer reacted to some of the criticism his collaborator, Taylor Swift, has received recently following her darker new sound, stating, simply, that it doesn’t really change how he thinks of her.
“When it comes to anything that has to do with trivia about people’s personal lives or things that’s going on in their careers, I don’t necessarily pay too much attention,” Malik explained. “I don’t pay too much attention to what people even say about me. I just tend to take it for what it is when I meet them people in real life and have a conversation with them. If they’re cool with me, then I base my relationship on that.”
