1D’s Liam Payne says Zayn’s departure was a good thing

Turns out 1D wasn’t Zayn’s cup of tea.

WOAH. Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson just go so real about their former band mate’s departure, we had to go for a walk around the block to think about life.

During a chat with Good Morning Britain, LiLo got super honest about the fact that Zayn never really meshed with the whole boy-band thing.

"One Direction was never really Zayn's kind of bag, if you know what I mean.” Liam stated.

“His taste in music was a bit different, and I guess that's kind of what drove him to do what he did in the end, which is not necessarily a bad thing."


Louis also opened up how he’s feeling about performing with Harry, Niall and Liam for the last time before their big hiatus.

“It will definitely be emotional, once we kind of take it in for what it is, because we've spent five years touring every year and even not touring for a year next year is going to be quite bizarre."

"You're kind of counting down the shows now thinking, 'There's not many left', so you're really appreciating every moment, not that it's the end, but still, it's important."

But fear not, folks.

Louis assured that he and the boys and are still planning that #LADS holiday and plan to stay in touch.

"There's no doubt we'll see plenty of each other, we're gonna plan to go on a little lads' holiday. Actually it's just the day to day things, we are like a family now, so it's the company that you're used to, it's like leaving school and leaving your friends behind."

There’s no word on when we will have a refreshed 1D back in our lives, but Louis did say this, "We don't really want to put a time on it because then that puts pressure on us, and we're just going to enjoy this time to do what we want to do."

Speaking of the hiatus, there’s a magazine in the US that claims to know the gender of Louis Tomlinson’s baby!

Or Should we say, TomlinDAUGHTER.

Yep. According to InTouch magazine, a sneaky ~source~ revealed that Louis and Briana’s baby is 100% a little girl.

“Louis' family is thrilled. They would have been happy either way, but they know he will be a great dad to a daughter because he has six sisters. And Briana's over the moon!"

The not-so-sure-how-legit source added that Briana and Louis are “trying to make things work” and that Louis will be heading over to the US for the birth.


Can you imagine the sass this little girl will inherit...?
