One Direction’s Liam Payne ‘A Bit Jealous’ of 5 Seconds of Summer

You wouldn’t think Liam Payne would be jealous of much, considering, y’know, he’s a member of wildly successful One Direction and holds the title of one of the wealthiest young musicians in all of Britain. But that’s not so, he shared, and his green eye is directed towards none other than 5 Seconds of Summer.

The 1D and 5SOS lads are very familiar with each other at this point. Louis Tomlinson discovered the Australian band on YouTube, leading to them opening for 1D on the British-Irish band’s last world tour. 5SOS will soon be joining Liam, Harry, Louis, Zayn and Niall on the road once again, for the United Kingdom and North American legs of their current Where We Are World Tour.

Just because the two bands are friendly doesn’t mean there’s no envy between them. Liam admits that there is a tad bit of jealousy where instrument playing is concerned.

“I am a bit jealous of them,” he revealed to Sugarscape. “I am working on learning to play now but I wish I had put the time in like they did when they were kids.”

He added, “They are f—ing great musicians.”

There are no hard feelings, despite the jealousy. “They are so massive right now,” Liam said. “It’s huge getting to play stadiums at their age. It couldn’t happen to a nicer band.”

Good, because we love both bands too much to have to choose in a 1D vs. 5SOS rivalry!
