Liam Payne

As you all surely remember, last week One Direction star, singer extraordinaire and ungrateful little shit Liam Payne signed to Universal label Capitol Records, leaving behind Home-Of-1D Sony Music. Harry Styles, meanwhile, is set to sign Sony’s Columbia Records, while even lazy 1D drop-out Zayn Malik is currently working with Sony’s RCA.

But what does 1D maker, Syco chief and Sony Music exec Simon Cowell think about this development? “We’re in touch with them all”, says he of the 1D boys while chatting to The Sun at an ‘America’s Got Talent’ press conference, mainly because one of those boys – Louis Tomlinson – has appeared as a guest judge on the talent show.

Cowell then apparently continued: “The great thing about all these boys – well not all of them, but most of them – they are incredibly loyal, and you don’t always expect that. Niall, Harry, Louis – amazing”. Yeah, fuck you Liam Payne. And now you’re part of the Universal Music family you’ll have to make do guest judging on ‘The Voice’. I mean, how humiliating will that be?
