One Direction may not have looked overly impressed when 'N Sync performed at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, but that hasn’t stopped 1D-er Zayn Malik from using their lyrics to keep his love life alive.

Judging from a recent interview with British publication Metro, Zayn and fiancée Perrie Edwards are all about the digital get down. Justin Timberlake, be proud.

“We miss each other,” Zyan said of Perrie before adding, “We’ve got Skype as well. That helps.” You can almost hear bandmates Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson giggling in the background.

According to Metro, “Zayn hinted his Skype activity may keep his love life with Perrie spicy,” a TMI revelation that prompted Louis to say “All right!” while stifling laughter.

“I don’t wanna know what you’re doing in your personal time!” Liam added. We have a feeling he already had some idea; tour buses aren’t exactly known for being private.

Zayn and Perrie first met two years ago backstage at The X Factor: UK. Both participated for the British version of the talent show. Zayn, obviously, performed with 1D in 2010 while Perrie is one of four in the all-female group Little Mix, which won the show in 2011.

Unfortunately, their individually hectic performance schedules keep them apart with Zayn telling Metro that Perrie is due back from her US performances just as he heads out on 1D’s Take Me Home world tour. Thank goodness for technology. And boy bands.
