Liam Payne has some advice for Noel Gallagher: use your brain before you use your mouth. After Noel tore into One Direction by calling them ‘c*nts’ and much worse, Liam shot back by saying Noel was a two-face liar and his attack on 1D wasn’t hurtful, but just really ‘sad.’
Liam Payne, 22, now has a lot of spare time on his hand, now that One Direction has gone on hiatus. So he can take care of some unfinished business with Noel Gallagher, 48. The Oasis co-founder trashed Liam and 1D in an interview stuffed full of profanity, and Liam decided to return the “complement.”
“The funny thing was, I met him the day the story came out,” Liam told Radio 1, according to the Daily Mail, when he was asked about Noel calling Liam and the rest of his band mates a bunch of “c**ks*ckers” in the Dec. issue of Esquire. “I didn’t know it was coming out,” Liam said, “and he came up and said ‘All right, mate? How are you doing?'”
“I was like, ‘Fine thanks, mate. Nice to meet you.’ The next day, I read the story and thought, ‘How sad is that?'” said Liam, amazed at Noel’s sudden friendliness towards him and 1D while trashing them in the press. “He completely dissed us. Nice to diss your fans, isn’t it?”
It’s not terribly rockstar of Noel to say that every member of 1D will be “in rehab by the time they’re 30” one moment before being pleasant and nice the second. “It’s sad because they genuinely led me to a path of singing,” he told Radio 1. “That’s something they should be genuinely proud of.” Clearly, Noel didn’t see Liam do a wonderful version of his song, “Wonderwall.” Shame.
Noel should also know that Liam is not afraid of a fight. Liam took on former member, Zayn Malik, every single one of Justin Bieber‘s Beliebers and even had words with fans after they called him “homophobic.” Liam even went after Louis Tomlinson on stage during a show (thankfully, the two of them “kissed and made up” afterwards.)

Despite this feud with Noel, Liam wanted to end it on a positive. “Good old Noel, bless him,” Liam said, wrapping up his beef with the Oasis singer. While it’s quite likely Noel will blast 1D, Adele, Artic Monkeys and anyone else again, Liam won’t sweat it. “I had to have a moan about that at some point,” he said. But after saying his piece, Liam remarks, “I’m over it.”
Who do you think won this fight, HollywoodLifers? Liam? Noel? Do you think it’s over or will Noel fire back?
