Yesterday, the news broke that curvy girls have made it because Zayn Malik is into “chunky girls.” (He told Billboard this in his cover story.)
We were going to leave this tidbit because we were tied up with other features we thought mattered more, but now we can’t resist a good joint GIF project.
Now that we’ve googled him to verify he exists and is in the band One Direction (we’re not as up on this band as everyone else is), we have some important GIF reactions to this news because we’re women with opinions, his fave kind.
When the word “chunky” caught my eye and a Campbell’s beef with country vegetable soup can flashed in my head. But then I realized he’s talking about a woman.
Oh hmm so his idea of a woman with chunk in all the sweet spots is Gigi Hadid? Great. How has this guy made it 22 years without getting a swift golf club swing to the face?
I wonder how he has time to whip up one of his mom’s six signature dishes for the ladies knocking down his door when he’s clearly got “being a douche” written all over his agenda.
Cool he likes a girl with thoughts other than ‘Does this foundation shade make my boobs look bigger?’ running through her head. Having opinions is a rad concept. But some opinions are better left unsaid, like yours, Zayn.
Wait… so people actually pay money to see this guy? Or waste time writing babysitter fan fiction about this ex-boyband dude with his ears pierced?
Someone as cool as this famous person likes “chunky” women…seriously? Like that dream sequence in Girls when Hannah Horvath thought she spent two nights with a hot older guy? The impossible IS possible.
It was helpful that he pointed out that he meant “chunky” in the right places (elbows and kneecaps obviously), because we wouldn’t want to get CRAZY and think someone with hair THAT awesome was into soft curves anywhere but boobs and butt. My feelings on this qualifier are best described by the Lady Dowager of Downton.
At first I was worried that his fondness of women with opinions might lead to too much self-expression with my gender.
But I’m actually really excited he likes women with an opinion, and I think women with opinions might turn out to be a good thing. Here’s mine. You’re really tolerant and accepting.
It’s cool that he said: “I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.” He seems to have an interesting view of the world, but can’t talk. Doing eyeliner.
