"A lot of my friends are gay and I don’t think anything about it. I actually find it funny that being gay is still something that’s talked about as though it’s not natural. I mean, I don’t go around saying, 'Oh, this guy is gay'. I don’t make a big deal about it. I will just say, 'This is my mate'. My mates are my mates, regardless of their sexuality." Pop star Liam Payne has no problems with his gay pals.
