Liam Payne Beat Boxing

A Special Skill
Liam has a special skill of beatboxing. He also has other talents other than singing such as playing the guitar and piano.

Biggest Wish
He wishes to be taller at around 6 feet 2 inches. He is 5 feet 10 inches at this time. An increase in height would help him improve his skills in playing one of his favorite sports, basketball. This is also his favorite hobby.

Claim to Fame
Liam first tried out for the X Factor in 2008 and made it as far as getting to Simon Cowell's home. He was not a finalist, but tried out again in 2010 and soon became famous when joined with the group One Direction.

Liam Payne has a letter D tattooed on his left hand.

Tattoo You
He has a letter D tattooed on his left hand. It is said that the D may stand for his ex-girlfriend Danielle Peazer. Yet, there has never been a definite answer. He is currently dating Leona Lewis despite their age difference.

Some more facts about Liam Payne
He prefers to sleep naked. He used to sleepwalk when he was much younger, at age four. I do not know how he managed to kick the habit, but if he walks around naked while sleep walking that could be embarrassing for him.

Future Fact
He has made a claim that he would never go solo since he enjoys being in a band so much. He said it would be boring if he was alone. However, he did try his hand at being a solo artist on X Factor. I guess he cannot imagine traveling the world without someone else who could relate to his experiences, good and bad.

Liam Payne Worst Fear

Famous people
Liam admitted to having a man crush on Taylor Lautner, best known for the Twilight saga. He said he would even name his first child Taylor. Lets just hope it will be awhile until he starts having a family. After all, he is still a teenager!

Worst Fear
For some reason that goes unexplained, Liam fears spoons. Because of this he uses forks to eat such things as ice cream. Nevertheless, he enjoys cooking. This makes it difficult to not come across at least one spoon.  

Member of a Previous Group
He used to be a part of the Scouting Association. This is the British version of the Boy Scouts in the United States. They not only learn to tie knots and make camp fires, they join debates and political conferences as well as other activities with many groups of children around the same age.

Past in School
Liam used to be bullied by other students in high school. I wonder what they would say now.
