In a wide-ranging interview, he spoke about his future as a solo musician and what’s ahead for 1D after the release of their forthcoming fifth album. “I realize now this is the time to start branching out and exploring,” Payne told the magazine. “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.” Payne said the cover shoot was the “first time I have done something on my own,” and said that he hopes to get into songwriting, production, and business as a solo artist. “I want to target every part of the industry,” he said. “A lot of people say to me, ‘Oh, you’ll go solo,’ but I haven’t thought about that.

The One Direction star, who was recently accused of making homophobic comments, came under fire by several fans after revealing rumours claiming his bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles are lovers annoys him. 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.

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. Speaking about Louis and Harry’s alleged relationship, Liam told Attitude: ‘When the law changed in the US there were loads of rainbow flags flying at our shows’. 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.

He continued: ‘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’. Liam will no doubt set pulses racing in the stunning shoot and his revealing interview, where he spoke of his hard partying lifestyle and settling down with his girlfriend Sophia Smith.

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. Also there were a lot of things on my mind and that’s what helped me through. ‘Now I’m a lot more focused and I feel good to be out of that zone and be more concentrated. 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.

Audience members recalled Liam saying: ‘This is my favorite 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. 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.
