Taylor Swift bestowed a highly coveted honor upon Zayn Malik

Everyone knows that you can’t come between Taylor Swift and her cats. Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson are the two most famous cats on the plant and are constantly surrounded by some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Most Swifties know that the two adorable felines hold the most important place in Swift’s heart and that she only lets her BFFs bond with them. Now Zayn Malik can count himself in that lucky group.

Swift and Malik ~just~ dropped a surprise duet for the upcoming sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker. Malik announced the duet on Instagram, with a photo of himself and Swift, along with Swift’s cat Meredith.

Check it out below:


The fact that the two are friends is unsurprising due to the fact that Malik has been in a relationship with Swift bestie Gigi Hadid for the last year or so, but still, the Instagram is FULL of ~drama~. Way back in 2015, Malik abruptly departed  boyband One Direction, in an emotional day of mourning felt around the world.

Even further back in 2012, when Malik was still a part of One Direction, his bandmate Harry Styles dated Swift for a whimsical three months. Yes it was years ago, but ~true~ fans never forget.


While the Taylor-Zayn Insta photo may cause drama for millions of Directioners, it is such a cute way to announce a collaboration. Many tend to release promotional stills when promoting a new project, so posting a personal picture like this really takes us behind the scenes and is totally adorable. If we had to guess, Hadid definitely snapped the pic.

We’re going to listen to “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” on repeat while we try to untangle the complicated webs that are celebrity relationships.
