If it weren’t for your Britishness, I’d say that Friday (August 29) is a big milestone for you, Liam Payne. Today, you’re turning 21 — an adult by American standards because now you can legally drink alcohol in the States.
Since you and your One Direction bandmates spend a lot of time in the U.S., let’s celebrate this milestone with your most playful moments.
Now, I could show you a picture of younger Liam with boyish grin:
But he’s different now. He chopped off his hair two years ago! He poses in GQ! He shows off his abs! He wears flannel!
Perhaps we can find a happy medium — mature Liam acting like a kid. After all, we’re all kids at heart, and who doesn’t like a guy with a sense of humor?
1. Only Directioners can appreciate this.
2. You still pick your nose. That’s rad. We all do.
3. It’s always fun to play dress-up.
4. Did I get chocolate on my shirt? Whatever! Hi, mom!
6. This Knicks game may be serious, but you find a way to lighten the mood.
7. Are you burping here? Ex-squeeze you.
8. And now you have a cape on, pretending to be Batman. Good.
9. You’re such a goof.
10. Where’d you learn that move?
11. Liam, I think you’re supposed to be classy at award shows.
12. Tickle, tickle.
14. Sometimes you like to trick us with your pantsless ways.
15. Never hurts to have fun on a red carpet. Pose wacky.
16. He’ll never notice.
17. Hey, mom, look at my macho-man muscles!
18. When all else fails, point and laugh at everyone else.
19. Ahh! Was that a bee?
20. OK, calm down, boys.
21. So charitable, sexy… and playful!
