As you're probably aware given the hoo-ha it caused, One Direction's Liam Payne's signed a solo deal with Capitol Records UK. We're pretty excited about it, not gonna lie. Someone who doesn't sound too excited about it, though, is Simon Cowell.
Speaking in an America's Got Talent conference call with press and stuff, Uncle Si was asked about his relationship with the 1D boys and branded them all 'amazing.' Well Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles who are still with Modest!, SYCO and Sony respectively, at least.
When Simon was asked about Liam's solo material he quickly glossed over it, discussing the other three lads instead. He said: "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."
In further, slightly-less-dramatic news, Simon also had a chat about Louis' guest spot on America's Got Talent. He said: "Louis was great. It was so funny and so odd that he had auditioned for me five years ago and now he's siting where I am sitting judging other people and doing it really well.
"I was really happy for him and he loved doing it."
Well at least Tommo's still in the good books, eh?
