Zayn Malik's interview with Billboard has got EVERYONE talking, and seems to have split the fandom right down the middle as they choose to side with either Team Zayn or Team One Direction.

But as well as his revelations about his dwindling friendship with the band, it's Zehhhnn's description of his ideal girl which has also caused a bit of a stir, as everyone thinks he might be taking a dig at ex-fiance Perrie Edwards.

It was inevitable that anything Zayn says or does to do with the opposite sex would always be made about Perrie for a while after their split, and yawn yawn yawn, his chat with Billboard about women is no exception.

Describing his ideal girl, Zayn said that he likes a gal who he can have an "intellectual conversation" with, and wants a relationship "where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they're wearing."

If you want to capture Zayn's heart, you need to know your stuff, as he also went on to say that he likes a girl who can "talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion."

That's where the troublemaking rumour-starters like to waltz in however. Just because Perrie is a girl who takes care of her appearance, the shit-stirrers are assuming that he must be saying that Pezza's conversation skills are lacking. 

And now we're gonna go off on a bit of a rant so please excuse us.

A dig at Perrie? Hang on a sec, can't a girl who's interested in fashion and beauty also hold a conversation about world issues? SOZ, forgot you can't do both. Perrie's a clever gal and we're calling BS on the idea that he's targeting her with that one just because her eyeliner's always on fleek.

We'd say it's more worth talking about another quote from Zayn though, when he said: "I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas – the nice areas. I like a fuller woman."

We're absolutely certain that El Maliko means no harm by saying it, but describing the likes of Perrie Edwards and Gigi Hadid as "fuller" women isn't exactly accurate or helpful in terms of promoting positive body image. 

We know he's just saying that he likes boobs and a bum on a girl, but let's be honest, "chunky" isn't exactly a flattering term, or one that you'd use when talking about a very slim popstar and an ever-so-slightly curvy Victoria's Secret model. Hmmmmm.

This, basically:

Sorry, went off on one a bit there didn't we? We're going to have chunky chips and a Kit Kat chunky for lunch because we're CHUNKY MONKEYS.
