this will do wonders for Zayn's bad-boy rep
After legions of fans have only just gotten over One Direction and Justin Bieber being nominated for NME's Worst Band and Worst Album awards, Kerrang! knock it outta the park and put them both up for the Villain Of The Year gong, as part of the Kerrang! Awards 2012.
Er, we don't have any quotes from the boys to shed any light on how they feel to be put forward for such titles, but we're pretty sure they'd go something like this.
Zayn; "Ey, that's mad-sick brilliant that. Villain Of The Year, that'll go with my leather jacket, tattoos and bad-boy-Bradford-swagger."
Justin Bieber "Ker-what now y'all? HELL NO."
Liam: "Oh wow, it's really nice to be mentioned and nominated, thank you very much Kerrang!, we're sure you're all very lovely people."
