Liam Payne, “people write bullsh*t about me daily”
- Liam Payne isn’t a fan of mainstream media’s penchant for misrepresenting him
- The star opened up to Esquire Middle East in its June issue
- Payne said what really annoys him is when the media drag his friends and family into the public eye
- He described most of the stories about him as, “f***ing bulls**t”
Liam Payne says pretty much everything you read online about him is, “horses**t”.
“I go home every night,” said Payne speaking exclusively to Esquire Middle East, “and I know that people write horesh**t about me daily.”
The former One Direction star continued to bash the mainstream media, saying “I know it’s f**king bulls**t.”
What really gets Payne frustrated are stories that drag his family and friends into the public eye.
Payne is referencing one particular story in The Daily Mail, which attempted to insinuate he was romantically involved with another member of his team. Payne said those kinds of stories hurt him so much because of the impact it has on other people, not just himself.
“For someone who’s never had a story written about them before? If they go home and their partner’s reading the paper going like: ‘what the f**k is this?’ It’s difficult for them to be able to explain that.”
“The difference with that story was that the people that they were putting me with have families, boyfriends, girlfriends”.
Payne explained that he fully understands that his position as a celebrity comes with some compromises, but it is not appropriate to involve people not used to that lifestyle he explains.
“I asked for this, I get paid very handsomely to be here and it’s part of my life and I get it. It’s alright. You can write what the f**k you want about me but when it comes to other people who work with me? That is not on.”
“I just think there’s a certain line where I have to have my say. And that there’s only one way for me to do that—which is through my music.”
