‘I thought people appreciated honesty’: 1D’s Liam Payne hits out at fans as they criticise his candid Attitude Magazine interview.

The One Direction singer appeared on the cover of Attitude magazine’s October edition and spoke frankly about his past issues with drinking, the band’s decision to go on a break and his relationship with his girlfriend. One Direction still has plans to reconvene after their extended hiatus, according to band member Liam Payne, who’s the latest star to cover Attitude magazine this month.”I realise now this is the time to start branching out and exploring,” Payne said. “This won’t last forever, and there will be a point when we will break off and do our own things, but… we will work together again.” He added, “A lot of people say to me, ‘Oh, you’ll go solo,’ but I haven’t thought about that.Liam Payne has hit back at those who have criticised his candid interview with Attitude Magazine after the publication named him Sexiest Man Of The Year.Liam Payne has opened up about drinking to cope with his workload, bandmate Louis Tomlinson’s impending fatherhood and accusations of homophobia in a new magazine interview – and insisted One Direction are not breaking up.

He said rainbow flags began appearing at One Direction concerts after same-sex marriage was legalised across the US, but he attributed this to rumours that two of his bandmates were in a relationship. “When the law changed in the US there were loads of rainbow flags flying at our shows, but I think that was mainly because people think of the Louis and Harry thing [that they’re secret lovers], which is absolutely nuts and drives me insane,” said Payne. “A lot of my friends are gay and I don’t think anything about it. Following tweets from fans, including one which read: ‘You didn’t have to bring up Larry, you didn’t have to bring up the baby gate, this was YOUR interview not Louis or Harry’, Payne hit back. I actually find it funny that being gay is still something that’s talked about as though it’s not natural […] My mates are my mates, regardless of their sexuality.”

The 22-year-old added: ‘And am blessed with the best job in the world massive thank you to @AttitudeMag for having me along and for everyone who enjoyed reading’. Take a look:— Attitude (@AttitudeMag) September 10, 2015 Bandmate Louis Tomlinson is set to become a father with former girlfriend Briana Jungwirth – news that Liam revealed Louis is “very happy” about – but he admitted he was annoyed by reports the story isn’t true. “He’s very happy about becoming a dad.

I want to make great music that people want to listen to.” Payne has already dabbled in solo work by remixing 1D songs, calling them “Big Payno remixes.” So far, he’s reworked versions of “You & I” and “Steal My Girl.” Earlier this summer when EW caught up with longtime One Direction producer Julian Bunetta, who worked with Payne on the remixes, he said there may be some more coming. “I’m sure he would want to,” Bunetta told EW. “He loves doing it. Introducing the track ‘Girl Almighty’ at a recent gig, the singer said: “This is my favourite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman of your life, which none of you can relate to, ’cause most of you are girls. It’s a great title to have.’ Clearly feeling candid, the What Makes You Beautiful hitmaker explained that for a stint he was drinking heavily but insists it helped him through a dark period.

There were a just a few times that I went over the limit with things and then I had to pull it back.’ He says: ‘We have talked about marriage, but 22 seems a bit young for us. But the Drag Me Down hitmaker openly came out in support of gay marriage in the interview. “It’s strange to me that countries are still refusing to pass the [gay marriage] law.

Liam’s tell-all chat also revealed that One Direction’s workload caused him to turn to drink to cope, but he insists they’re not splitting permanently. You can’t live in the past, you have to move with the times.’ ‘It’s the first solo shoot and interview any of the members of One Direction have done, their first gay press shoot and I think the only magazine promo for their new album,’ a spokesperson for the magazine said. ‘The news that the band are taking a hiatus or splitting up, whichever version you believe, means that this story should be global news and I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t become our biggest-selling issue ever.’ He apologised to his 20.7M followers for calling out boys in the audience who couldn’t relate to dedicating a song to a woman, but insisted that his comments had no homophobic intention.

Meanwhile, in the magazine’s interview Liam will also discuss the pressures of being in the spotlight and how he feels about his LGBT fans as well as One Direction’s future without Zayn.
