Liam Payne Has Finally Addressed His Weird Accent From The Oscars

Apparently he had too much to drink.

Whilst most of the fallout from this year’s Oscar ceremony centred around the Will Smith/Chris Rock slap and the reaction to that, one nice little aside involved Liam Payne talking about the incident on the red carpet in a constantly changing accent, leading many people to assume that he was completely gakked up.

Payne himself hasn’t yet bothered to come out and try and explain his crazy voice, but over the weekend he decided to post the below explanation video, claiming that his accent was all down to the fact that he had had quite a lot to drink that night. Sure buddy:

This was in Oscars week – the ever changing accent.

I’m good at accents, I pride myself on them! I just wish sometimes I could do my own.

What can I say about that really? It was quite funny. I had asked Good Morning Britain, the presenter, I said, “Please don’t ask me too much because I’ve had a lot to drink and I’m under-ly educated about the Oscars [sic].”

The very first question the man asked me was, “What do you think about Will Smith?” Now can you imagine, imagine being put on the spot in that moment and knowing, “I can’t say anything wrong because I’m gonna upset someone” and I just did the best I could.

I actually read back what I said and I stand by what I said. But I’m just sorry it came out in so many accents!’ I’m not even sure if it’s an accent I can do.

That day – I’ll tell you the truth – I was staying in a house with two German people, three people from Texas, one person from Liverpool and me. It sounded like one of those jokes people say where an Irishman and an Englishman walk into a pub.

But it was funny wasn’t it?

He’s right it was and I suppose it’s pretty good that he can look back at how weird it was and laugh about it rather than getting really butthurt about everyone on the internet dissing him and never speaking on camera ever again. Not really sure that he needed to address it in an explanation video, but I suppose it’s still nice of him to do that for us.

Thanks Liam – I hope you continue to have a weird accent that goes all over the place. No need to apologise/explain.
