The One Direction star turned the big 21, Aug. 30, and we bet he’s going to have a fabulous birthday weekend ahead! But we want to take a look back at some of his most memorable moments in the past year!

Liam Payne has had quite the year. When it came to love, the One Direction star broke up with Sophia Smith, and got back together with her! Then when it came to jokes, he had some hilarious moments on stage, then there was a naked selfie he posted, plus he mocked Justin Bieber.

Liam Payne Turns 21 — Happy Birthday

Let’s take a look back at his 20th year on this earth!

Liam posted a photo of himself seemingly naked on social media but it turns out he was wearing a speedo! It all happened on his Instagram page, July 27, and let’s just say he showed off a ton of skin.

Then One Direction also revealed this  year that they have a film, Where We Are, hitting the big screen, Oct. 11 and Oct. 12.

Liam has also faced some major controversy this year! He and Zayn Malik were in a video where they looked to be smoking an illegal substance. But after major outrage, he apologized on Twitter.

“I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways I apologise for that,” Liam tweeted May 31. “We are only in our 20’s we all do stupid things at this age.”

But there were some laughs too! When Justin changed his Instagram name to Bizzle, Liam and Niall Horan immediately began tweeting, Feb. 18, words that rhymed with it.

The best part? They released their music video for “Midnight Memories” which we totally loved!

HollywoodLifers, take a second to wish Liam a very happy birthday!
