Well, this is rich. Liam Payne, bête noire of One Direction—a heaven-sent pop troupe which descended into hell upon the coward Zayn’s departure, now seated at the left hand of the devil to hold concert only when he demands—says One Direction was never Zayn’s “bag.” Yeah right!

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, the loathsome Liam, poison dripping from his maw, burning the ground beneath his webb’d feet, forming the words “lie” and “liar” in Good Morning Britain’s stately oak flooring, (a guess), told hosts:

“One Direction was never Zayn’s kind of bag if you know what I mean.”

Uh—no, Liam. We don’t know what you mean—LIAM.

He continued:

“His taste in music was always a bit different which I guess is what kind of drove him to do what he did in the end - which is not necessarily a bad thing.”

Incredible. To throw dirt on the coward Zayn’s grave from your hellish, burning perch. To attempt to adjust our memory of what was once a beloved troupe, now simply a rotting nightmare. Liam. Liam. I can barely recall hearing a word as foul.

“I think both parties are winners in the end after a disastrous situation. So it’s all good.”

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
