Zayn Malik has slammed Grammy Awards and its selection process, saying 'unless you shake hands and send gifts there's no nomination considerations'.

The former One Direction member posted a scathing tweet on Tuesday in which he seemingly alluded to the Grammy Awards being rigged.

Criticising the Grammys, the 28-year-old singer claimed: 'Unless you shake hands and send gifts, there's no nomination considerations.'

Gigi Hadid's boyfriend has dropped three solo albums outside of his work with One Direction and been nominated once alongside Taylor Swift for their duet, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever."

Zayn's new record 'Nobody Is Listening' was not eligible for consideration this award cycle because it was dropped in January, five months after the eligibility period ended on August 31 and two months after Grammy nominations were announced in November.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Los Angeles on CBS Sunday evening.

Zayn Malik has joined The Weeknd, Drake and Halseyis to slam the Recording Academy and its selection process.
