It looks like Scottish singer Calvin Harris and former One Direction singer Zayn Malik are the ones who have “Bad Blood” now. The British stars got into a Twitter battle Monday after Malik retweeted a message about his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, not having her music on Spotify.
The tweet had two photos: one was a picture of Swift with a statement about Spotify, and the other was a picture of “Wrecking Ball” singer Miley Cyrus with a statement about Spotify. While Swift told Time that she “didn’t like the way it felt” to have her music there, Cyrus had a different opinion. “I’ve made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It’s fine. I’ve got a house, and I’ve got dogs that I love. I don’t need anything else,” the pop singer supposedly said.

Malik called this a “G statement,” and it infuriated Harris. “If [you] don't get what it means when a successful artist uses their celebrity to benefit every other musician and songwriter in the industry, stay out my f----- mentions please,” he wrote.
But Harris wasn’t done there. “While [you] kids are refresh voting teen choice awards, there's some poor fucker in a basement making your new favorite record trying to survive,” he added. “Meaning...stay out of things you don't understand.” Their feud ended just as Malik called Harris a d---head.
Swift, surprisingly, remained silent. She and Cyrus supposedly have a feud brewing after the “Adore You” singer said there was a double standard between her and Swift during an interview with Marie Claire because of the gun violence in “Bad Blood.”
"I don't get the violence revenge thing," Cyrus, 22, told the magazine, whose September edition will hit stands Monday. "That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my [breasts] out? I'm not sure how [breasts] are worse than guns."
