Liam Payne embarrassed by One Direction past
The former boyband hero is desperate to being taken seriously as a dance music star.
He explained: “When the DJ puts on What Makes You Beautiful you get a bit shy about it.
“It’s a different maturity, of course we were very young when we did that.
“I love dance music and I did a lot of remixes for the band as well.
“I’ve always had a dream of my song being played in a club.”
Fans raised eyebrows when they heard Liam sing: “I used to be in 1D (now I’m out, free)” on recent single Strip That Down.
Defending the line he said: “It was freedom to be able to create different music.”
Nevertheless, Liam is up for a collab with one of his ex 1D bandmates, if not a full reunion.
“That would be amazing! We have to find the right song but we already know our voices are good together. I’m open to this idea”

Liam will be hoping other half Cheryl can hook him up with her celebrity DJ mate first.
“Calvin Harris is the one I really would like to collaborate with,” he teased.
“I used to sing his songs before I was in the band.” Liam performed at the launch of VOXI on Thursday night – a new mobile service created by people aged 25 and under.
But his next move is a single with Charlie Puth.
The singer revealed: “The song Charlie wrote for me is amazing.
“This is gonna be my next single, and wait until you see the music video…
“It’s not about me, which is funny. You’ll see” Expect something very soon.
Ageless J.Lo is still Jenny From The Block.
Some 15 years after her hit of the same name, Jennifer Lopez was back in her New York manor shooting another pop video.

Hopefully, it’s the secret to her age-defying looks.
The Vamps have been taken over by vikings – well EDM vikings, after teaming up with Norwegian producer Matoma again for new track Staying Up.

Madonna is not moving to Lisbon after all…
Reports had suggested the Material Girl was relocating so she could be near her son David, who has signed up to the Benfi ca Football Club academy.
However, I hear Madge only intends to visit the Portuguese city frequently.
A source told me: “Madonna has properties all over the world, but New York is still her home.
“She will be making her new album in America.”
