Liam Payne Defends His 'Fake' Smiles While Taking Selfies

Liam Payne received some flack this week after a Vine video of him taking selfies with fans went viral and now he is responding to the buzz.

In the clip, the 21-year-old One Direction singer is seen giving big smiles when snapping photos with the fans at the ARIA Awards in Australia, but then wiping the smile completely off his face in between each fan.

“Lots of people saying I was ‘faking’ smiles with fans yesterday… I usually find when ur taking a photo u don’t smile until somebody’s about to take the photo 📷 🌟,” Liam tweeted in his defense.

“Sorry to disappoint but I don’t walk around like this all day… That would hurt!” Liam added with a big smile emoji.

    a smile means nothing if you are smiling all the time

  • Lisa

    It was the Aria awards, with thousands of people that all want pictures from the celebrities and he was just probably trying to get to everyone so it made it look kind of rushed. I don’t get why media makes such a big deal out of the smallest things

    And a smile means nothing if you are faking it. He doesn’t even look at the fans…

  • eternalozzie

    these guy seriously need to take a break … you can tell they are just tired and run down … the sad thing is they signed their lives away and are owned by the record labels

  • Flower

    He was just being efficient I think. He’s willing to take selfie with lots of his fans, not many celebrities do that. And I’m sure the fans were happy with that selfies. Media these days are actually the main source of pressure for young celebrities by reporting unnecessary news like this. Those 1D guys still handled it well though, they even look like real men now haha
