“If he didn’t want to be here, he shouldn’t be here, which is fine. Like I say, good for him, he’s gone off and is doing his own thing and he’s doing really well so I don’t want to mess with his stuff. We did a whole stadium tour without him so I feel like it’s fine.”
Liam admitted that he hasn’t spoken to Zayn since he left the band and he has very little contact with Harry Styles. However, he remains close with bandmate Louis Tomlinson.
He revealed, “I feel like me and Louis always had the most connection through everything. There was a point where me and Louis did not get on at all, we absolutely hated each other.
“He has been really great for the last few years. It’s nice having a brother that you can lean on who knows exactly what you’ve been through,” Liam added.
Our dreams have been crushed. Would you like to see One Direction together again?
One Direction swiftly became one of the biggest boy bands of all time following their stint on The X Factor. Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik lives were transformed overnight.
Fans followed them everywhere they went, their songs took over the charts and their names were known all across the globe.
They were living the dream, but former member Liam Payne has now revealed it wasn’t all it fun and games.
In an interview withMen’s Health, the Strip That Down singer said he had to drink to cope with the sheer level of fame they were experiencing.
He explained that there were many moments when he couldn’t quite wrap his head around what was happening to him.
“When you’re doing hundreds and hundreds of [concerts] and it’s the same 22 songs at the same time every single day, even if you’re not happy, you’ve got to go out there,” he shared.
“It’s almost like putting the Disney costume on before you step up on stage and underneath the Disney costume I was pissed quite a lot of the time because there was no other way to get your head around what was going on. I mean it was fun. We had an absolute blast but there were certain parts of it where it just got a little bit toxic.”
“It’s difficult when you have the level of fame that we had in the band. There have been a lot of people in trouble with mental health that aren’t really getting the help that they need and I think that’s a bit of a problem in our industry.”
First of all, Zac Efron is a human being and can dye his hair absolutely any colour we wants, defying public opinion.
That said, the internet is completely torn over the actor's new 'do, mainly because it's PLATINUM BLONDE. Yes, you heard that right. Like Draco Malfoy-style blonde.
He was everyone's childhood boyfriend after his stint in High School Musical, but it appears fans have become too used to his sweeping brown locks. They've lost their minds at this latest news, literally.

It looks like it's all on again for Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik after the model shared a cosy snap on her Insta story.
The pair announced their split in March, though to wasn't long before reconciliation rumours started to circulate, with photographs showing the two leaving each other's apartments on multiple occasions.
Oh, and let's not forget that oh-so-awkward sidewalk snuggle.
However, despite the headlines, neither Gigi or Zayn publicly commented on theit relationship status – until now.
After attending the premiere of Ocean's 8 in New York last night, it seems Gigi decided to give the after party a miss and spent the night cuddling with her beau.
Meanwhile, Gigi's younger sister Bella has also rekindled things with her ex, The Weeknd and little brother was seen smooching Kendall Jenner.
Singer Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid have split after more than two years together.
The former One Direction revealed the news on Twitter earlier this evening, writing: : "Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul.
"I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time. We wish this news would have come from us first. We love you all."
When Zayn Malik made the decision to leave One Direction back in 2015, fans were stunned that the Bradford-native would choose to turn his back on the biggest boyband in the world.
And while the singer insisted that he simply felt his time with the band had come to an end and a solo career beckoned, rumours have circulated in recent years that all was not well in the 1D camp in the months leading up to Zayn's departure.
Indeed, Louis Tomlinson recently revealed that his late mother had encouraged him to rebuild his friendship with Zayn following his shock departure, saying: "I can’t stand to hold a grudge with anyone. It doesn’t sit with me right."
"I would always see the good in Zayn and also watch him shoot himself in the foot with some of his decisions, but he’s just a little misunderstood," Louis added at the time.
However, it doesn't seem like Zayn shared the same friendship with other members of the group, telling Us Weekly that he didn't expect to see much of Harry after leaving the group.
Speaking of his former bandmates, he said: "We're in touch. Everything is on a civil level."
"It's not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we're growing as individual men, but we still check in."
The 24-year-old singer then turned his attention to Harry, revealing: "To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn't really expect that much of a relationship with him."
In an emotional interview with The Sun, Louis Tomlinson has opened up about a sentimental exchange which took place between himself and his late mother in the weeks leading up to her untimely passing.
Speaking to Dan Wootton, Louis revealed that 43-year-old Johannah, who died after a battle with leukaemia, urged her son to make peace with his former bandmate, Zayn Malik.
Giving an insight into the conversation which took place, Louis explained: "My mum said, ‘You’ve got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life’s too f***ing short’."
“A mother’s intuition is just f***ing crazy. It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted," he added.
Explaining why his mother's words resonated with him, he continued: "I can’t stand to hold a grudge with anyone. It doesn’t sit with me right."
"Zayn was always good for me in the band because he was my go-to if I wanted to p**s around, lark around. I could always break the rules a little bit with Zayn."
Johannah encouraged her son to build bridges in the aftermath of Zayn's shock decision to leave the band in 2015, with Louis saying: "If there is any animosity, just clear the air. I met up with him and it was nice.”
Louis, who hadn't spoken to Zayn for a year following his unexpected departure, insisted that he felt conflicted at the time.
"I would always see the good in Zayn and also watch him shoot himself in the foot with some of his decisions, but he’s just a little misunderstood.”
Following their reconciliation, Louis is able to see the strength of the bond they shared during their time in One Direction.
“So after that whole thing, it was that brotherly love. We will always have that love for each other. I can’t speak on behalf of him but we really care about each other."
On Thursday, Vogue released its August cover, and immediately faced considerable backlash.
The issue, which featured Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, was condemned for purporting to understand the concept of gender-fluidity by using the couple's tendency to borrow each other's clothes as an example.
Unsurprisingly, members of the public wasted no time taking to social media to highlight the magazine's feeble grasp of the concept.
"Think Vogue is a bit confused on what gender fluidity is! Wearing your gf's T-shirt doesn't not make you gender fluid," wrote one.
"Yes hello police, Gigi Hadid wore pants last week and now Vogue is calling her a gender fluid icon," added another.
Responding to the backlash, a spokesperson for the iconic publication attempted to justify the magazine's intention during their fashion-oriented interview with the model and former One Direction star.
doesn't vogue think non binary/gender fluid people would have been great to talk to abt gender fluidity? not gigi hadid and zayn malik?
