Zayn Malik attended his first American Music Awards as a solo artist, and got nominated for the first time as a solo artist.

Winning Best New Artist of the Year, Zayn Malik made a joke on his former band ‘One Direction’ by saying ‘WOW, this just has my name on it, right?!’


RIGHT, Zayn!

Yep, that was a TOTAL DIG at his former band One Direction, and it must have stung ALOT.

Although, it might be Zayn himself that’s feeling the consequences of the joke the most, as it seems it fell totally flat, reportedly.


Either nobody in the audience caught the reference, or they didn’t think it was funny at all. Nevertheless, Zayn has made his family, Gigi and Pakistanis proud!
