Taking to his own Twitter account shortly after the nominees were announced, he wrote: ‘Thanks @AMAs! Nice to be nominated.’

According to The Sun, the blonde beauty, 23, is heard singing a host of harsh lyrics in the new track, entitled Shout Out To My Ex - perhaps hinting at her former fiancé and their poor sex life.
The four girls draw on their past relationship experiences as they belt out the new punchy tune - with Perrie singing some potentially revealing lyrics on the track, according to the report.
One brutal line is speculated to be criticizing the former One Direction member's skills in the bedroom, and showing sympathy for his new model flame Gigi.
The South Shields star allegedly taunts: 'I hope she gettin' better sex, Hope she ain't fakin' it like I did, babe.'
