i meant that zayn talked about stress/weight loss/having no creative input regarding his leaving 1D in fader. it was a whole year later in his book he felt more comfortable sharing about disordered eating.& i thought maybe liam can open up more in magazine interview settings than in radio interviews with dan w** or on this big tv show. i don't understand how liam is unable to emphasize with zayn either, imo it's a huge character flaw, but i still want to be sensitive towards his personal issues
I think we’re going to have to agree to disagree. Like I said, I’m mostly just disappointed with how Liam changed his tune when he had solo Liam Payne to sell.
With all due respect to everyone who’s a Liam stan, I personally am not interested in hearing about his struggles, I only care when he makes digs at Zayn. I take interviews with Dan Wooton (Wooten?) with basically a boulder of salt, but Liam has diminished Zayn’s struggles multiple times in the last few months when Zayn has reiterated for a year and half now that he loved the boys, was grateful for the opportunities given, just didn’t care for the style of music and was exhausted by having to be ‘on’ all the time. This is something he’s said from the very first solo interview. I so appreciate that Zayn chose to share about his ED and anxiety with us but he didn’t even have to do that for me to know that he struggled in the band. We all saw the double standards and straight up racism/ Islamophobia first hand.
So I’m not here for 'Liam was misunderstood’ or 'It was a team talk point he didn’t mean it’ or worst of all 'it’s sabotage’. I have no respect or fucks to give about a dude openly refuting and shading the heartfelt statements Zayn has made multiple times, so that he can sell his generic record.
