Liam Payne Reflects on Controversial Interview About One Direction

Liam Payne is looking back and making amends.

The 29-year-old “Strip That Down” pop star revisited some controversial comments he made about his former One Direction bandmates – particularly Zayn Malik – while appearing on Logan Paul‘s podcast.

During an extensive conversation with fans, Liam offered an apology and explained where he was at mentally when he spoke about the group.

“A lot of what I just said came from the wrong place. I was so angry at what was going on around me and instead of taking a look inwards I decided to look outwards at everybody else. And I just think, yeah, I just took it out on everybody else. My own frustrations with my own career, where I could have landed; I took shots at everybody else, which is wrong. So obviously I want to apologize for that,” he said.

He continued, adding, “Obviously one of the biggest remarks I made was about the One Direction thing, and [there was] a lot of self-protection I suppose in that moment more than anything.

Liam described the interview as “a big L” for him. It came across really big-headed, huh? It was hard for me to watch back. I think in those moments when you make these videos, you don’t realize the impact that your words might have on other people.”
