Looks like not everyone is part of the Beyhive.

It's no secret that Zayn Malik is one of the biggest solo acts on the planet right now.
After defecting from One Direction, the 23-year-old musician shocked the world by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard with his single Pillowtalk, proving once-and-for-all that Harry Styles was not the only soloist in the group.
But while Zayn may be conquering the charts, it doesn't seem like his nonchalant attitude is doing him any favors with the rest of the industry.
The 2 On singer shares RCA with the former 1D member, but one of her personal conversations with fans that leaked online recently shows that she's a little annoyed with all the preferential treatment he's been getting!
She even goes as far as saying
Justin Bieber & Meghan Trainor Are Performing At The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards — Check Out The Full List Of Nominees Here!
We heart the iHeartRadio Music Awards!
Unlike traditional ceremonies that honor music's best artists for their work, this show is all about "fan-fueled" entertainment.
Sure, the show has standard categories like Song of the Year and Artist of the Year, but fans can also vote for select categories socially — like Best Fan Army and Most Meme-able Moment! How fun!
If that doesn't sell you, the first scheduled performers for the third annual award show were announced on Tuesday, and they are none other Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor — who are both nominated, along with Taylor Swift, Adele, Sam Smith, and The Weeknd, to name a few!
Check out the full list of nominees and find out who wins when the iHeartRadio Music Awards air April 3 on TBS, TNT, and truTV (below)!!!
Zayn Malik Does Something One Direction Has Never Been Able To Do — Score A #1 On Billboard's Hot 100!
Looks like he didn't need his brothers after all!
The numbers are officially in for Billboard's Hot 100 for the week ending February 20, and Pillowtalk is sitting nicely at No. 1!
For those of you keeping track, the lead single off Mind of Mine's debut at the top of the chart marks the first No. 1 song for any of the boys from One Direction.
In fact, the closest 1D has ever come was Best Song Ever's peak at No. 2 back in 2013 — clearly showing it was, contrary to popular belief, not the best song ever.
Ch-ch-check out everyone Zayn managed to beat with Pillowtalk (below)!!!
Zayn Malik Is Coming To The Tonight Show! Find Out When His Next Attempt At A Solo TV Debut Is Happening!
Give him a second chance?
Last week, Zayn Malik was scheduled to perform his new single Pillowtalk on The Graham Norton Show in his first television appearance as a solo artist.
But apparently the singer got cold feet and canceled his spot at the last minute due to "scheduling issues."
Now, it looks like the former One Direction member's solo TV debut will be in the States, because he is set to appear on The Tonight Show!
The 23-year-old will perform his chart-topping single for Jimmy Fallon on February 17 in anticipation of his upcoming album Mind of Mine — which drops on March 25!
Let's assume that since his single is out and is being well-received, Zayn will actually follow through with this performance!
Will YOU be watching the singer take the stage on The Tonight Show?

To say it's been a busy week for Zayn Malik is an understatement!
But that didn't stop the singer from unveiling a brand new acoustic recording of his track Pillowtalk!
Zayn shared a clip of him recording the cover on his Snapchat (username: Zayn) — and even though it's only two 10-second videos, this is TECHNICALLY his first live performance! LOLz:
Does this put the nail in the One Direction coffin? Sigh.
Niall Horan is reportedly using his hiatus from the group to set up a firm called Modest Golf Management — a branch of 1D's management company, Modest.
The 22-year-old is a known sports enthusiast and even caddied for pro golfer Rory McIlroy last year. The new agency will serve as a company to recruit and nurture British and Irish talent.
The Mullingar native also reportedly has the former account manager at equipment brand TaylorMade Mark McDonnel involved in the project. Seems pretty legit…
The promising thing here is that Niall is still working with the band's management, not separately.
We guess only time will tell.
