Liam Payne: 'Bob Geldof wasn't happy with people's diva behaviour at Band Aid recording'

UK boyband One Direction recently laid down vocals for Band Aid 30's 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' charity single and member Liam Payne has revealed that there was some 'drama' in the studio that left Sir Bob Geldof feeling irritated. 

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Scott Mills, the heartthrob admitted that there was definitely some 'diva' behaviour from other people involved in the song's recording although he was careful not to drop names and embarrass anyone:

"We actually managed to get in the recording booth first so we were done in like an hour so we left. I missed all the drama. (Sir) Bob did a little speech at the start. I say a little speech but it was the most epic thing I've ever heard in my life."

"He said to our manager, 'There are so many people here and you guys are the least fussed'. And I was like 'Yes. we're not divas. That's so good'. I'm not going to repeat the word he used to describe them but he wasn't happy with some people."

Songstress Lily Allen recently spoke out about declining to take part in the project because of the people who were involved:

"I got an email asking me to do it. It's difficult to give an explanation why I didn't do it without sounding like a complete c**t. I prefer to do my charitable bit by donating actual money and not being lumped in with a bunch of people like that. It's like the 'Success Club' and I'm not really in that club. I don't think I'm above it all – I'm way below it. But there's something a bit smug about it."
