It is nice to see that there are varying approaches to how members of One Direction approach conversations about their past as the biggest boy band of all time. In a recent interview with The Project in Australia, Louis Tomlinson talked about his time in the band and recent comments made by Liam Payne.
Playing it safe, Tomlinson opted to stay rather pacific about the entire situation – basically avoiding answering the question.
“I’m immensely proud [of One Direction], as I know Liam is,” he said. “I’m immensely proud of those days, obviously. I mean, it was an incredible thing to do at such a young age. I’ve had amazing memories.”
Last month, Payne appeared on Logan Paul’s podcast Impaulsive where he dropped bombshell after bombshell that left fans puzzled. In the interview, he mentioned that Simon Cowell created the group around Payne in order for him to become a star. He also said that he had problems at some point or another with various members of the band – with one allegedly pushing him up against the wall during a confrontation. Fans believe it was Harry Styles – the only member of the band that Payne does not follow on social media.
Payne also claimed that his debut solo single ‘Strip That Down’ was the first song from any of their solo work to hit a billion streams. That claim is not true as his song has not reached such a milestone. Meanwhile, ‘Watermelon Sugar,’ ‘Adore You,’ ‘Sign Of The Times,’ and ‘As It Was’ by Styles as well as ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,’ ‘Dusk Til Dawn,’ and ‘Pillowtalk’ by Zayn Malik all have surpassed such milestone by a lot.
Tomlinson is currently on tour promoting his exceptionally good debut album Walls. He is performing several shows in Australia through the end of the month.
