LONDON -- One Direction member Liam Payne says he is sorry for being stupid and irresponsible after he was photographed standing on a building ledge 34 stories above the ground.

A photo published Wednesday in British tabloid the Sun shows the boy-band singer standing on the ledge of a high-rise with a city that appears to be London behind him.

The 20-year-old said in a statement that I regret being there and having a photo taken. It was a stupid and irresponsible thing to do.

He urged fans not to imitate his extremely dangerous behavior.

The band emerged from Simon Cowell's British TV series The X Factor in 2010 and became one of the world's top-selling groups, with three albums topping U.S. music charts.
