Liam Payne may have been all smiles while rocking out with One Direction on Good Morning America Tuesday morning (August 4), but Monday evening he was struggling a bit with all the attention that surely has become a daily part of his life. He even wished he was Harry Potter, presumably because of Harry's Invisibility cloak.

In a series of tweets, he expressed his disappointment with how he was being treated in NYC ("cornered like an animal") and his hopes for future visits. 

The sadness didn't last long: Early Tuesday morning, Payne was back to being excited to meet the fans, sharing a countdown to the GMA appearance.
