Captain Sensible strikes again


Despite his reputation as the sensible one, we often imagine that if Liam Payne didn't have the rest of One Direction to keep him grounded, he'd probably end up being a bit of a bad ass. It sounds like we don't have to worry about any of Perez Hilton's predictions of a split any time soon though as Liam is a big fan of the other lads.

Liam Payne on going solo from One direction: "It would be massively boring"

But with the shiny world of showbiz sitting on his doorstep, has he ever been tempted to fly the nest and go solo?

"Erm, not really," Liam told Top of the Pops.

"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."

Yeah, that Justin Bieber is a right old hermit. Apart from the whole entourage of dancers and quiff arrangers, or so we'd imagine.

"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!"

Dawww. We can just imagine them enjoying a five way spoon in celebration.

But what do you think?
