Liam Payne Signs With New Management, Simon Cowell Hints at Disloyalty

Liam Payne is breaking out of his boy band shell.

The 22-year-old former One Direction singer just signed a new management deal with Doyen Global, distancing himself more from Simon Cowell.

Meanwhile, Simon recently left Liam‘s name out when talking about loyalty.

“The great thing about these boys – well, not all of them, but most of them – they are incredibly loyal and you don’t always expect that,” Simon told Yahoo. “Niall [Horan], Harry [Styles], Louis [Tomlinson]… amazing.”

    The 1D members, including Zayn owe Simon nothing. All he did was provide a platform for them to be noticed. From then on they built their own popularity & brand through hard work. Social media made 1D not Cowell. May they all succeed in their own right & distance themselves from the vile & greedy Cowell over time. He is nothing but a parasite! His uninspired management & lack of a migration strategy to serve a more mature audience did 1D nothing but harm. Harry only remained with Sony because they outbid Universal to Azoff who brokered the deal!

      And if Simon hadn’t supplied that platform? Hadn’t signed them? Hadn’t put money into promoting them? You’re obviously not versed on how such industries work, because you’re basically saying that it’s alright to use the hand that helped feed you as a springboard towards greater things without owing gratitude or thanks.

      You must be one of those people who feel they are entitled to something g, rather than owing thanks to a genuine gift.

        Simon never put money into promoting them. Simon only made money out of them. Sony footed the initial bill and made so much back it’s frightening!

        Simon never put money into promoting them. Simon only made money out of them. Sony footed the initial bill and made so much back it’s frightening! They owe Simon nothing but thank you. They have doubled his nett worth while they enjoyed a mere 7% of the takings. Simon made money out of providing the platform from ITV. That’s known as a rip off! Simon treated them very badly. Loyalty is a two way street. Wake up!. Anyway, in many respects he has killed off the goose that lays the golden egg due to shockingly poor management & short term greed! To date none of them has re-signed with him. Ever wondered why? Three of them have signed with far more competent management teams. Louis & Niall have yet to sign with anybody.

      And can you find something better to do than copy and paste your same response to every post regarding g the same subject — desperate for attention much?

      • Glyn Ruck

        Foxtrot Oscar. If you choose to read every article saying the same thing then ignore the comments dimwit. I understand this business very well.

          Very mature. And, actually, your little profile shows that you trolled all of the articles, just so you could copy and paste your post. Look in the mirror if you wanna see a dimwit.

            P.S. Kinda creepy that your obsession with 1D has drawn the attention of others on this site and others…

          • Glyn Ruck

            You may think it creepy among about 5 others globally. Hardly a representative sample. It’s probably creepy that you read multiple articles on the identical subject. I have been maintaining a study for our corporate on marketing in the social media era ~ subject 1D ~ the most successful example to date. As such I know how badly they have been treated by this dinosaur industry that Steve Jobs had to drag kicking & screaming into this century. As such I support them & we have learned an awful lot about fickle customer reaction. Note I do not post under a pseudonym or hide my age like most.

          • Mark A. France

            As I stated above, I don’t need to ‘read multiple articles’, because it shows on your profile all of the pages that you posted the same response to… And if you’re doing corporate research, it’s a rather odd way of going about gathering ‘research’ by putting your own two cents in, which would then make it ‘tampered’ data.

            And only five others, you think? Hmm…Google yourself and look for the threads you’re mentioned in. Maybe you can collect that data, too.

          • Glyn Ruck

            You misconstrue. All data fact checked by our consultants. What I comment in the press has no sway. We gather all responses to posts I make on the periphery of the study. I never comment on the core of the study. It’s proprietary. There are interesting learnings from responses & my support lies in the high 90%’s even with Xenophobic responses regarding Zayn. My response to you was regarding the Disqus platform where the same old people that have no cogent argument take a swipe at me.They are welcome. I have a global business honed thick skin.

            The result of your ill informed posts! Simon thinks he controls the media & needs some kick back from time to time. Simon ultimately has issues with all of his artists. Review his history.
