One Direction’s Liam Payne suffers from selfie fatigue

One Direction's Liam Payne

The horror, the horror!

It’s a hard life being a young, handsome, rich, incredibly talented musical sex icon: Just ask One Direction’s Liam Payne.

While attending the Aria awards in Australia (where the boyband snapped up the award for best international artist, no less), the pressures of fame and fortune got a little too much for the 21-year-old crooner. 

Snapping selfie after selfie after selfie after selfie with his adoring fans outside, Panye lets his carefully constructed cheerful mask slip for a moment—revealing the utter emptiness within.

Stay strong, Liam.
