Liam Payne believes One Direction will be “coming back around at some point”.
The ‘Bedroom Floor’ hitmaker and his bandmates – Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – decided to take a break to pursue their own projects a couple of years ago but Liam is “sure” they will reunite at some point when the time is right.
Asked if it has always been an aim of his to be a solo artist after he first entered ‘The X Factor’ as a solo artist, he said: “It’s always been a dream. I wouldn’t say it’s always been an aim. Once One Direction started, it was just the passion. It was fantastic and it still is. It’s coming back around at some point, I’m sure.”
And Liam – who has seven-month-old son Bear with his partner Cheryl Tweedy – was thrilled to be performing at the MTV European Music Awards on the same stage as the likes of his childhood hero Eminem.
Speaking to ODE on the red carpet at the event at London’s Wembley Arena, he added: “It’s fantastic. I’m excited to be here. To be on the bill alongside Eminem, that’s crazy.
“I never thought in my career that I would get to a stage where someone I used to listen to in my bedroom as a kid, I’m now sharing a stage with.”
