Liam Payne says he regrets his “rapper gold chains phase”



“I’m sorry, 2Paynez can’t come to the phone right now”
“Why?”
“Oh, ‘cause he’s dead!” (Yeah yeah yeah yeah)”


In a recent interview with Haute Living to discuss his new position as global ambassador for Hugo Boss and his collaborating on a capsule collection for the brand, Liam Payne, formerly known as 2Payne Shakur, confessed that he regrets his “rapper gold chains phase” (aka his fuckboi look). This was around the time his first single “Strip That Down” was released back in 2017.

When asked “Since your time with One Direction, what was your biggest fashion mistake?”

“Mine were in front of everyone! You can’t get rid of those pictures,” responded Lime.

He continues, “I think my biggest fashion mistake, even though I really enjoyed it at the time, was my rapper gold chains phase, which was quite fun. I enjoyed it for what it was. But it wasn’t for me! I think the most important part of it is dressing for what suits you. Push your boundaries, but I overdid it. I went a little bit too far with it.”

The STD singer adds, “I actually think my style has gone full circle to when I first started to learn about clothes, right as the band [One Direction] started. And then I went on a little journey and tried out a bunch of stuff, which I think is really important and people should definitely do and go experience, but just don’t take loads of pictures like I did because that’s just really awkward. But I think my fashion sense has gone full circle.”

He goes on to mention that new music is on its way as well as a underwear shoot campaign for Hugo Boss. Good luck with that new music Lime.
