One Direction’s Zayn Malik Looks Grumpy After Jimmy Kimmel Questions His Engagement To Perrie Edwards: Watch
In the midst of One Direction‘s North American promo onslaught behind new album Four (which, by the way, is expected to sell over 400,000 copies by week’s end — no big deal), the boy band stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live in Los Angeles yesterday for a chat. Jimmy threw a barrage of silly questions the lads’ way — Would you ever marry a girl who wet the bed every night? What’s the strangest gift a fan has ever given you? Who is most likely to let a woman split the band apart? — but things took an awkward turn when the host brought up Zayn Malik‘s engagement to Little Mix member Perrie Edwards.
“Do you guys think it’s a good idea that Zayn is getting married?” Kimmel asked the other 1D members. He then began to rib Malik by saying, “Zayn, you obviously think it’s a good idea… But I’m gonna tell you right now, it is not a good idea. And we’ll have a talk about this, but, I mean, I hope it goes well. I hope I’m wrong.”
Zayn, already reeling from a rough week after missing One Direction’s Today Show appearance (and thus dodging drug accusations), looked none too pleased and replied with, “I hope you’re wrong. We’ll leave it at that.”
At least by the end of the show Jimmy and the band all took a cute selfie together, complete with kittens, tiaras, ballerinas and a baby in a cherry costume, right?
