New love, new look?
As rumors keep swirling that Zayn Malik and Selena Gomez may be dating, the “Pillowtalk” singer released a questionable new hairstyle on Instagram on Thursday.
In the photo, Malik poses in full display with fields of fresh corn next to music producer and engineer Daniel Zaidenstadt in the studio.
And while the singer’s Instagram fans adored the look, many on Twitter objected to her mane makeup.
“Now I KNOW it’s not Zayn in some cornfield” tweeted a series of sobbing emojis, as well as the star’s choice of the traditional black hairstyle.
“Zayn take those damn things off [sic] cornfields” another begged.
third, “I’m not even mad about cultural ownership, I’m even mad that it doesn’t look good” Includes entry.
However, not everyone approved of the former One Direction member’s braids.
Someone even joked on Instagram that Gomez “won”.
This isn’t the first time Zayn has tried cornrows; He wore the same style when he was with his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid for a while.
After her breakup in 2021, she experimented with her mane multiple times, even dyeing her hair bright pink in 2022.
The Pakistani and British hit producer is said to have split from Hadid, with whom Gomez has since shared her 2-year-old daughter, Khai.
The singers, who are both 30 years old, sparked relationship speculation after they were spotted in what appeared to be a romantic date night in New York City in March.
