Damnation! We knew the members of One Direction had gone in five distinct directions after splitting up, but we didn’t think of them as this different.
But after the release of his debut full-length solo album, the long-awaited and nearly eponymous LP1, Liam Payne is now revealing where he feels he stands with his former bandmates. And for one of them that place is on the opposite end of a battleground in Megiddo during the end times.
Confused? Yeah, us too…
The Live Forever singer opened up about his relationships with Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan in an interview published Wednesday in The Face magazine. (Unsurprisingly he was fairly mum about black sheep Zayn Malik.)
When asked which bandmate he’d most like to take a walk with, he answered the same as we would, if we’re being honest. Just not for the same reason. He replied:
“To be honest with you, more than anyone, probably Harry.”
Why? To get to know him better. Same here, but that’s not what he meant:
“With Harry there’s so much mystery around who he’s become.”
Huh. They really don’t keep in touch enough for Liam to even understand who Harry is?? That’s exactly how he feels; he said about his other bandmates:
“I speak to Louis quite regularly. And I feel like I know where I stand with Niall.”
LOLz, he knows where he stands? That doesn’t sound good. Is he talking about that shady business when Niall dropped his single on the same release date as Liam’s album the other day??
But regarding Harry, he reckons they’ve grown as far apart as two entities can be:
“I was looking at some pictures of him the other day, and I just thought, ‘I don’t know what more I’d say to him other than, ‘Hello’ and ‘How are you?’ I mean, look at the stuff I put out and the stuff Harry puts out. Polar opposite.”
Then he dropped:
“I’m like the antichrist version of what Harry is.”
Um… WHUT?? He’s the what??
