Liam Payne Admits He Felt 'Stranded'!



Liam Payne has opened up in a revealing interview about his time in One Direction.

Liam, who also confirmed his new single 'Bedroom Floor' is out on October 20th, spoke about his time in the world's biggest band and how he struggled with drinking and mental health issues.

Despite only becoming a father earlier this year, it seems Liam has been playing the role of Dad a lot longer as he confessed to taking a step forward whenever life got serious in 1D!

“When something was going wrong, I’d get a phone call,

"If there was an apology needed, it was me. I was the spokesperson for the band, as it were, with the press and the label."

Liam also spoke about his regrets in the band, one being that they never properly enjoyed their success;

"One of the problems was that we never stopped to celebrate what we’d done,

"I remember us winning loads of American Music Awards and then having to get on a plane straight away. It got to the point where success was so fluid. I don’t even know what happened to our songs, we just sang them, then sang some more. It was like a proper, hard job. Non-stop.”

Due to issues in One Direction, Liam admitted that he started to not look after himself which caused him to drink more and more.

"I went through a real drinking stage, and sometimes you take things too far. Everyone’s been that guy at the party where you’re the only one having fun, and there were points when that was me."

Luckily, all seems well now in the Payno camp as he continues to SMASH IT on the solo stage and his family life continues to be cute AF!
