Payne and his 1D bandmates, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, are currently on a temporary hiatus. They announced the news in August, telling fans they needed some time off after releasing and supporting five albums in five years. They first gained fame on The X Factor UK in 2010.
Earlier this week, there were reports that the boy band called it quits for good, but a source confirmed to ET that the rumors were far from the truth.
Payne also shocked fans on Friday when he revealed a sexy buzz cut on social media.
