BACK­STAGE With LEN­NON STELLA

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

Len­non Stella Blue Q.

Jonas Liam Payne

“I was on the TV show Nashville for six years so I was tied down, in a pos­i­tive way. I got to write all that time and de­velop. It was bit­ter­sweet when the show ended but these songs have all come up in the last few years and so did that bass heavy sound. I ended up do­ing a lot of the songs dur­ing a writ­ing camp in Nicaragua.”

How did the Jonas Blue sin­gle come about?

A. This guy Ro­man who I worked with in Lon­don talked about me and some­how I got thrown in the bucket and they reached out to me to sing my vo­cal. I was in Lon­don and it was super-cool and great to cut vo­cals in the same room as Liam Payne. It’s very rare to ac­tu­ally be in the same room these days. It’s way more pop than my own vibe but I love it.

Was Jonas Blue pulling our leg when he said Ch­eryl was orig­i­nally go­ing to sing your part? A. I heard that story and I was like, ‘Wait he didn’t tell me that’. But it makes a good gos­sip story.

So you must have been the right age to ap­pre­ci­ate One Di­rec­tion?

To be hon­est I was not much of a 1D fan, it was al­ways my friends who loved them. So it was never crazy for me to meet Liam. I wasn’t super freaked out but he’s so chilled any­way its im­pos­si­ble to freak out

Yeah I’ve been avoid­ing Twit­ter be­cause that’s where all the 1D stuff is. There were a lot of things peo­ple were run­ning with like, ‘Who’s this new Ch­eryl looka­like?’. It doesn’t re­ally bother me be­cause it’s so not per­sonal, they would be like that with any girl around him. It’s noth­ing

hurt­ful. A.
