As you’ll all know by now, One Direction’s Liam Payne is the cover star of the next issue of Attitude magazine and as part of that he’s, of course, been having a little natter with them. One of the topics that’s come up is body confidence and how fat jibes early this year really hurt our babe.
“I started drinking a lot and I began to get a bit tubbier. In fact, because of that I was getting fat jibes all the time, which hurt me…I’m not afraid to say I went through a pretty bad stage. And for that time in my life, that was perfect for me. That’s what I wanted to do and so I enjoyed myself,” Liam confessed.
He continued: “There were just a few times that I went over the limit with things and then I had to pull it back. I was very fortunate that I had lots of great people around me who said to me, ‘Look Liam, you need to chill out a bit now.’ I’m not here to be a role model. It’s a difficult thing to place pressure on you when you’re so young. I’m going to mess up from time to time. Everyone does. I’m only human, and sometimes I let my guard down a little too much.”
Oh Liam, you’re perfect to us. Now don’t cry, it’s Niall’s birthday!
