One Direction just dropped their music video for "History," a career-spanning, tear-jerkin' look at their incredible five-year journey. It includes the days when Zayn Malik was still a member of the group... when the days when life was still worth living. It reminded us just why 1D is the best, and we cried sad tears of joy. 

Then Simon Cowell had to go and mess everything up. We kid, but it looks like the dude is not too stoked on the Z-man right now. Last month he called Malik "rude," and now he's shared a few more choice words with Yahoo, ahead of the Friday release of Malik's debut solo single, "Pillowtalk."

“I’m not interested in a  single word he says, but I am interested in what he sings," he told the publication, adding that he has heard new Zayn tracks. "I’ve heard it, it’s good, he’s going to do well.” 

Let that one sit, then test your knowledge: Is This A 1D or 5 Seconds of Summer Lyric?
