A lot of One Direction fans have been pretty vocal about their disgust at Liam Payne for supposedly losing his British accent.
The new dad appeared at a gig in LA over the weekend to tease the release of his new album and a brief interview with 102.7 Kiss FM surfaced on Twitter.

Liam Payne is like the human version of a golden retriever/labrador hybrid, with a weird american accent.

We're not sure we noticed a massive difference in his accent to be honest and we definitely don't hear an American accent. Then again, who are we to argue with One Direction fans over such matters?
Liam is releasing his first solo material this Friday.
