By Qaitlin Singh If you’re wondering why so many teen girls are wearing black it’s because they’re in mourning as of August 20th. That was the day of One Direction’s This Is Us movie premiere in London… but that’s not all. It was also the day when Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, and girlfriend of 1D member Zayn Malik, was spotted at the premiere wearing a diamond ring on her left hand. The pandemonium continued when Perrie’s mom, Debbie Duffy confirmed to Real Radio North East’s Gary and Lisa Show that the pair were engaged and did in fact have plans to tie the knot in the near future. Fans – or as they call themselves, Directioners – were split. Half were thrilled that Zerrie were engaged, but the other half, presumably the under 14 group, were devastated that their chance with the sultry eyed boybander would never come. Malik and Edwards, who are both 20, began dating in 2011 during the filming of The X Factor UK.
