One Direction’s Liam Payne for some reason could not resist taking a critical shot at Justin Bieber while saying he feels sorry for him. Payne told told Now Magazine as recorded by Monsters And Critics: ‘Not in a patronizing way, but I kind of feel sorry for him. I know he’s got friends around him and they go on tour with him. But they’re not going through the same situation as these boys are with me. If something bad happened to me tomorrow, Louis would be there for me 100 per cent. People sometimes ask if I want to be a solo artist, but it just wouldn’t be any fun being on your own.”
One Direction consists of Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.
Payne continued: ‘It’s important to have a life outside the band. But at the same time I spent the night yesterday at Zayn’s house. We all have this amazing brotherhood and that’s what makes this job so special. If we didn’t have each other, I think we’d crumble a little bit.’
Liam Payne’s comment implies that he thinks Bieber’s cracking up. Instead of the comment he made, Payne could have offered Bieber to join One Direction on a concert tour. If they’re really the friends Liam claims they are, that’s what he’d do.
Anyway, here’s a sample of One Direction in action:
