Liam Payne Opens Up About the Height of 1D Fame: 'I Really Hated My Life'

Fame may seem glamorous to many of us on the sidelines, but those who grapple with it on a day-to-day basis often struggle with the constant attention.

Liam Payne gets candid in a new interview about what it was like working in the insanity of One Direction and why it took its toll on him.

Once, when a cameraman accidentally pushed his mother over at a family dinner, Liam broke down in tears.

“I just wanted a burger with my parents,” he told The Daily Star. “I cried my eyes out. I thought, ‘I can’t do this’ and I really hated my life.”

“People were speaking to me about mental health in music the other day,” Liam continued, “and that’s a big issue. Sometimes you just need some sun, or a walk.”

This isn’t the first time Liam has spoken out about his mental health in the band. He also revealed in a recent interview that he struggled with drinking during that time.
