8 Times a Boy-Bander Savagely Dissed a Member of His Own Band
Despite the fact that the boy-band experience is constantly described as something like a “family” or “brotherhood,” it kind of seems like sketchy shiz is always surrounding these all-guy musical groups (smh… and people say girls are the dramatic ones!). Members are constantly ditching the rest of their group to try their hand at solo fame, dating the same girl and — of course — randomly dissing one another for no effing reason. P-E-T-T-Y.
While some guys insult their former boy bands long after they say #goodbye4ever (we’re looking at you, ZAYN), the dudes on this list dissed their current bandmates! Like, isn’t that awkward when they inevitably see each other again?
When Liam bashed Harry's solo music.
When One Direction went on their hiatus and told the world they'd be pursuing individual projects it was bittersweet. On the one hand, we want more 1D! On the other, it gave each of the boys a chance to shine on their own.
Harry Styles was the first to put out a complete album, so while Liam Payne was promoting his first single shortly after, he was obvs asked what he thought of his band mate's new tracks! Unfortunately, the new father-of-one went with brutal honesty instead of vocally supporting the "Sign of the Times" singer. "I'll be honest with you, it's not my sort of music," he told Music Choice (this was after he praised Niall Horan's tunes). "It's not something I'd listen to." ... okay, rude boy.
Cheryl's boyfriend (husband?) backtracked saying, "But I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do. That's the way I'd put it best, I think." He also mentioned that Harry "would say the same thing," but still... that's mean.
