Would One Direction's Liam Payne Ever Go Solo?

One Direction Liam Payne Wont Go Solo

Boyband One Direction has seen an enormous amount of success in both the States AND overseas, but sometimes — as we’ve seen in the past with other groups — success is just not enough to keep some members from going solo!

The fact that all the members of One Direction originally auditioned for X Factor UK as solo artists has put doubts in the minds of some about whether they'll last without any egos getting in the way!

1D member, Liam Payne, was recently asked in an interview if he in particular had any thoughts about pursuing a solo career!

Liam responded:

"Erm, not really. I think it would be massively, massively boring! I don't know how Justin Bieber does it, but full props to him. I like being around the boys. I enjoy other people's company and it's a lot more fun being in a band on stage."

Directioners, you can breathe easy for now! LOLz!

Of course, we’re certain the Biebs isn’t lonely or anything on OR offstage, but we guess he doesn’t get to experience that same camaraderie as he would if he were in a group.

Liam went on to say:

"There's so much work in this industry that if I had to do it on my own, I don't even know what I'd do. I'd be very bored and very boring!"

Sounds like the guys really are pretty close…though, we hope they don’t view their singing career as all work and NO play!

Guess it doesn’t hurt to have some bromance fun timez while in those boring meetings from time to time, ha!

Only time will tell if One Direction lasts the test of time, so for now, enjoy it while you can, Directioners!!

    Everyone always says this sh*t at first. But these boys also went on the X-Factor to become solo artists, did they not? It will happen once the fame truly gets to their head. They begin to think they can make more money on their own and crave all attention on themselves. I am sure at least 2 of them will try to go solo. It has happened with many, many groups.

    Actually Louis has admitted he wanted to audition with a group, and even asked around for other people on forums, but didn't manage to get a group together.
    I don't know why people seem so dead-set on this not working out. Sure, it may not be FOREVER, but that doesn't mean we should 'enjoy it while we can' - that makes it seem like they're about to break up any minute. To be fair, they've only just begun! And look what they can do! I think they have a long long way up to go before we should be talking about 1D-breaking up rumours.

    Re: Ju – Plus, UK bands seem to stay together longer than US bands from what I've seen. I mean, look at McFly and U2. I mean, it isn't a rule by any means, but I feel like they aren't all that concerned with going solo.

    Re: Nellygrl – U2 are an Irish band, not a UK band :P

    In all honesty, this is probably total bull. Liam is the best singer in One Direction, and quite frankly squashes the other boys in terms of talent. He will go solo eventually. Maybe not right now since he can be around other kids for support, but his talent is so unappreciated in the group. He says "no" just to adhere to Simon and keep things equal. Of course he's not going to say what he really feels. Simon Cowell tries to make these boys look equal in talent when they're really not.

    I honestly think the boys will not break up anytime soon.. Just go on youtube and watch any interview with them and you can see how genuinly good friends they are.. They do enjoy it all.. They mess around a lot and they are very protective of eachother.. I can imagina that all that travelling can be boring.. Now they have 4 other boys to turn to in every single thing they do.. Makes it more fun for them! Their bromances is a HUGE part of why the fans like them actually.. They act like idiots around eachtoher and its very fun to see!
    @mel but thats your opinion honey Cuz I actually like Liams voice the least.. Its really bland.. Nothing special to it.. I like Harry's voice cuz its got a rocky tone to it.. But to me Zayn has the best voice by far! Have you seen him live? He delivers evryone freaking time! Every freaking concert he hits those high notes like its nothing..
