Liam Payne Calls Out Taylor Swift for Harry Styles Diss: LAME!

Miley Cyrus isn't the only singer receiving backlash for her behavior at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Taylor Swift pretty clearly dissed Harry Styles on two occasions at the ceremony, once getting caught telling him to shut the eff up in a conversation with Selena Gomez... and then calling him out in public when accepting the award for Best Female Video.

"I want to thank the person that inspired this song, and he knows exactly who he is," Swift said on stage of "I Knew You Were Trouble," as the camera then cut to One Direction in the crowd.

Asked about the incident at the New York premiere of their concert film, This Is Us, Styles' bandmates stood up for their pal, with Liam Payne giving especially pointed remarks to reporters.

"I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it's like, concentrate on yourself!"

Did he think Taylor's actions were "lame?" Yes, Liam said when asked that question by a journalist on the scene.

Swift and Styles were photographed together at a VMA after-party, leading some to think an apology may have been made.

But Harry was only talking about Miley, not Taylor, at last night's premiere.

"I thought it was very reserved. I thought she was very, you know, timid," Styles joked about Miley's racy routine. "She's quite shy. I think she needs to come out of her shell a bit more."
