So you know how Liam Payne from One Direction has just signed with Capitol Records and there was a bit of a hoo-har about Simon Cowell throwing shade at him?
Well the X Factor mogul (love that word) has spoken out again to insist he wasn't intentionally horrible to our Paynis, he was just 'surprised' by the whole thing. Same, pal.
Alright alright so when Liam Payne woke up the other day and just decided to throw a massive curveball in our direction in the shape of a tweet explaining his future solo career? Well Simon Cowell had his say on the whole thing, and the 1D fandom interpreted it as *quiiiiiite* shady.
Speaking about the relationship Syco has with One Direction, he commented: "We're in touch with them all. The great thing about all these boys – well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don't always expect that. Niall, Harry Louis - amazing."
Since, he's been HOUNDED on the red carpet about what he meant by his comments, and took the opportunity when speaking to Access Hollywood to explain himself.
"You know look, not everything goes your own way. I was a bit surprised, but you know I wish him well. He's a good guy."
SO THERE YOU GO. No shade, no bad blood, all good here.
