Liam Payne says Cheryl Tweedy is "quite critical" of his music.
The 'Bedroom Floor' hitmaker relies on his girlfriend to give him advice on his music and whilst she is "quite a harsh judge", he appreciates her comments.
Asked if he was nervous about showing his solo music to Cheryl ahead of his performance on Saturday night (12.11.17) at Free Radio Live, he said: "I was a little bit. She's a judge - she still judges - she's quite critical. No, she really likes it but we have odd taste. We have different tastes in music. I just love music in general so whatever I'm sent, I'm like, I love it, I love it. And she's like, 'No', and I have to listen at times. She's quite a harsh judge. Comes from her X Factor days."
Meanwhile, Liam previously revealed he has "rap battles" with the former Girls Aloud star, with whom he shares seven-month-old son Bear.
He said: "To be honest with you we have rap battles in the kitchen, we have dance battles, I learn new moves all the time. Our kitchen is a wonderful place and sometimes food gets cooked there as well."
The couple have been going from strength to strength since their son was born and Liam had even claimed he has a telepathic connection with his 34-year-old girlfriend.
He said recently: "[Bear] sleeps in our room now, I can feel when Cheryl wants me to look after him in the night even if she doesn't say it."
But Liam is unsure if he wants to get married, as the subject seems "weird" to him.
He added: "I don't know if I'm the wedding-y type of guy. Weddings feel a bit weird to me. I don't know. Who knows? We'll see. We're just really happy in baby land at the moment."
