Liam Payne has reacted to One Direction fans upset that he spoke about topics including Louis Tomlinson's baby and how he addressed the Louis / Harry Styles romance fantasies in a new interview.

The singer scored his first solo magazine cover and interview with Attitude magazine, to celebrate him being voted the Sexiest Man of the Year by Attitude readers.

Among the topics covered in the interview was bandmate Louis' impending fatherhood with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, as well as fan fiction about Louis and Harry having a secret relationship.

After saying he got annoyed by people who thought Briana's pregnancy was fake, he then spoke about 'Larry' while discussing America's recent law making same-sex marriage legal.

Liam said: "When the law changed in the US there were loads of rainbow flags flying at our shows, but I think that was mainly because people think of the Louis and Harry thing [that they're secret lovers], which is absolutely nuts and drives me insane. It's like when you know the ins and outs of what's going on with people it's just annoying when it's so stupid."

But some One Direction fans apparently weren't happy at him discussing Louis' baby or Larry rather than focusing on himself, while others said perhaps the rainbow flags were nothing to do with Larry, they were to symbolise acceptance and equality and being happy with yourself.

Liam, however, defended the interview and his comments via Twitter, saying: "It's funny I thought people appreciated honesty these days. Can see people saying I'm playing 'the victim' I don't feel even 1% a victim at all I had a wonderful time doing the shoot and am blessed with the best job in the world massive thank you to @AttitudeMag for having me along and for everyone who enjoyed reading."
