Most of his comments in response to an article came from Daily Mail who described the five lads as just another group who take money for granted, can’t write their own songs and are pretty much musical puppets under Simon Cowell’s wing.
Jan Moir, responsible for the rude article, wrote: “They fostered the notion that they and the Directioners are all friends together in this big, crazy adventure; that their special fan/band dynamic is one built on mutual love, respect and affection.”
She added: “Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. It is a relationship built on cold, hard cash in an aggressive and hugely successful commercial enterprise.”
“So they can’t have it both ways. They cannot shake down millions of little girls, emptying their piggy-banks and pink plastic purses of all their pocket money without feeling even a whisker of responsibility.”
Of course the post that she wrote went on and on, and if you care to read the full version you can click here — but the comments above were enough for Liam to slam the writer on Twitter yesterday afternoon.
“Just read a daily mail article written by Jan Moir some of which I totally agree with but some things you are far off your game my friend,” Liam responded.
“Think you’ll find I’ve written a lot of the next album and songs on the last I play piano Niall plays guitar that ok? like so many writers before, consistently get things wrong looking down there noses thinking they are oh so right”
He continued by saying: “Anyway thank you for your lovely words mrs moir sorry we let you down so fantastically maybe next time a little research is in order. I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways I apologise for that.We are only in our 20’s we all do stupid things at this age.”
To Liam Payne’s defense, he did write several of the tracks from the group’s last album ‘Midnight Memories’. From what we’ve seen, these guys are anything but rude; they have a good background, try and stay away from the drama and remain humble at all time.
They’re living their dream. Jan Moir is hating because she’s stuck in an office all day, writing about five boys who are having the time of their lives. Haha.
