Liam Payne is facing a fierce backlash over the lyrics to his new song Both Ways.

The song, about a girl who ‘likes it both ways’, appears on his new album LP1 – which, by the way, has been completely panned by critics.

He can be heard singing: ‘Sharing that body like it’s our last meal. One and a two and a three, that’s for real.’

Unsurprisingly, many slammed the fetishisation of female bisexuality and non-heterosexuality from a straight, cisgender male’s perspective on the track.

Flocking to Twitter, unimpressed users quickly got #LiamPayneIsOverParty trending on the platform.

One unimpressed user simply wrote: ‘Bisexual women do not exist for your pleasure.’

Meanwhile, another Twitter user explained: ‘Bisexual people do not exist to fulfil your fantasies and I thought that was clear, but straight white men never fail to amaze me.’

One high profile critic was YouTuber Tyler Oakley, who shared the hashtag and said: ‘B***, I warned y’all years ago! lmao’

At the time of writing on 6 December 2019, #liampayneisoverparty was the second top London trend on Twitter, with almost 32k tweets posted by 8.20pm.

LP1, the dad-of-one’s debut album, is out today.

The backlash follows a similar response to the 2018 track Girls by Cardi B, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.

The track – which contained lyrics like: ‘Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls, red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls’ – was criticised for suggesting bisexuality is a phase.

Liam’s reps declined to comment on the backlash.
