The singer insisted that the group have no plans to embark on solo careers, after celebrity blogger Perez Hilton told Digital Spy he does not think the band will stay together much longer.
Payne insisted that he finds the prospect of becoming a solo star "boring" because he enjoys taking to the stage with his bandmates.
"I think it would be massively, massively boring. I don't know how Justin Bieber does it, but full props to him," he told Top of the Pops magazine.
"I like being around the boys. I enjoy other people's company and it's a lot more fun being in a band on stage."
Meanwhile, One Direction have been in the studio working on the follow-up to their debut album Up All Night.
The five-piece have been writing new material with McFly and US soft-rock act Boyce Avenue.
