The boys from One Direction don't look as though they're lacking in confidence, but Liam Payne has revealed that his bandmate, Zayn Malik, struggles to cope with fame. Speaking to British newspaper, The Sun, Payne said, "The only person I really worry about is Zayn, because I don't think he's quite accustomed to all of this. He had a terrible time on Twitter... I don't think he's quite adjusted to it yet." Liam has been in the news a lot recently. Here is a look at some of the other things he's been doing.
Out of all the members of the British boyband, it seemed as though Liam was the most settled. He'd been with his girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, for two years before they split last week. Just one month after moving in together, everything fell apart. It's believed that Payne's hectic schedule was to blame for the break-up, but they will remain friends.
Less than a week after splitting from Danielle, the 19-year-old was rumored to be dating none other than UK winner of "The X Factor," Leona Lewis! Allegedly, the young singer was always smitten with Lewis, but as it turns out, there is no truth to this gossip. Liam shot down the rumors very quickly, saying that the pair went out for a drink, but are definitely not in a relationship.
If anyone understands Zayn Malik's fears about how crazy the music industry can be, it's Liam. After his first, unsuccessful, appearance on "The X Factor" when he was 16, Payne was paid £50 to perform at a music festival. He stated that it was so bad, he told his dad he wanted to quit the business. Clearly, he is living proof of what people can achieve if they keep reaching for their goals!
You know what they say about getting a new hairstyle after a break-up? Well, the teen idol has done just that, and shaved his hair right off! New pictures have yet to emerge, but his sister, Ruth, took to Twitter to let everyone know what she thinks about it. She said, "He looks so grown up!" Perhaps this new 'do will help him bag a brand new girlfriend sooner rather than later!
