What happened?!

Former One Direction member Zayn Malik apparently came down with a case of cold feet! The singer just cancelled what was supposed to be his first television appearance as a solo artist.

The 23-year-old was scheduled to perform on Friday's The Graham Norton Show — which would actually film in advance Thursday evening — but has reportedly bailed at the last minute!

Zayn's people apparently told producers they had a scheduling conflict, but that doesn't seem likely given the timing.

Will Smith Also Boycotted The 1989 Grammys Before Skipping Out On This Year's Oscars! Watch His Vintage Interview!

History repeats itself!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will not be attending the Oscars this year to protest the lack of diversity in the Academy's nominations.

It seemed that the Concussion star was following his wife's lead after he joined her call to boycott this year's ceremony — but Jada actually took a page out of her husband's playbook!

Back in 1989, the Fresh Prince refused to attend at the Grammys for its lack of integration!

That year, the ceremony included a rap performance category for the first time — and nominated Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff for their hit Parents Just Don't Understand.

POLL: Should Chris Rock Joke About #OscarsSoWhite?

While that historic year was a huge step towards making rap music mainstream, that particular segment of the show wasn't going to be televised!

In an old interview Entertainment Tonight dug up from its archives, the hip-hop duo explained why they thought the design of the show was "a slap in the face."

It's sad to see that other sectors of the industry haven't progressed that much a quarter of a century later!

Ch-ch-check out a young Fresh Prince explaining his boycott (below)!

Oscar Nominee Mark Ruffalo Makes A Difficult Decision About Attending Amid Diversity Controversy! See What He Chose!

Quite a few stars are skipping out on this year's Oscars, but Mark Ruffalo isn't one of them.

This week, the actor told BBC News that the lack of diversity in this year's nominees had him "weighing" whether or not he'd join Will Smith and Spike Lee in not attending the prestigious ceremony.

After mulling it over, the 48-year-old — who is nominated himself for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Spotlight — revealed he plans to go to the award show, but he still supports the boycott movement!

On Thursday, Ruffalo posted a series of tweets about his decision, highlighting he would attend the show in support of a different cause:

Even though the Avengers star will attend the event, he hopes the Oscar Ban movement would star the conversation on much larger issues at hand, like the #BlackLivesMatter movement:

We totally understand the actor's decision!

Spotlight was an important film that shines a light on a very different problem, and it's of the utmost important to him that victims of sexual abuse be represented, even while another controversy is going on.

What do YOU think?

Aunt Viv is not here for the Fresh Prince's wife.

As you've surely heard by now, the Oscars caused a rather large controversy last week when it was revealed that practically all of the nominees were white.

#OscarsSoWhite has been trending ever since, and Jada Pinkett Smith made national headlines after she called for a boycott of the Academy Awards due to a lack of representation.

Will Smith's former onscreen mother Janet Hubert made it clear she disapproved of Jada's video on account of more serious issues of inequality taking place around the world, but she's already back with more shade against the Gotham actress.

In an interview with L.A. Times on Wednesday, Janet called into question Jada's reasoning for taking a stand against the Academy, saying:

He's got her back.

Jada Pinkett Smith has been the talk of the town ever since she announced she was boycotting the Oscars due to their continued lack of diversity, aka #OscarsSoWhite Year Two.

And while the actress has seen support from celebs like Spike Lee and Al Sharpton, as well as some not-so-positive feedback from Whoopi Goldberg and Stacey Dash, it surprisingly took a few days for Will Smith to share his stance on the matter.
