You are so calm about all the Elk crap Louis keeps saying. How do you do it? I have about stopped listening to interviews and I think I may stop checking blogs. I won't stop streaming, gifting, buying, tweeting radios because I love him and know he deserves better. But I cannot understand why he said the thing about larries being disrespectful. He could have just said the rest and let Dan print the rest. Then we would know it wasn't him. That just hurt when we go so hard for him
I understand your point of view completely. No matter how much he is being coerced, it still hurts to hear him say that we’re disrespectful, and that’s what his team wants– to break the support of Larries, to isolate Louis.
Frankly, if this is what it takes to set him free, I’ll put up with this BS and take the hit. My feelings are not that easily hurt– I know it’s fake. I’m not going anywhere.
I know Louis loves his Larrie fans. He loves his LGBQTA+ fans– he loved being in gay Amsterdam, he gave the middle finger a week before promo started.
He put the “LEGALGRIND” sign in his behind-the-scenes teaser. He wore his Billie Jean T-shirt. He put words about his situation in the BTY lyrics. He took the “Always” Insta selfie in the Jamaican hotel where he and Harry went on vacation.
Louis is doing what he can to reassure us that he loves us. When “Always You” comes out, I’ll think about the AIMH tweet and AMA 2015.
I’ll think about the fact that when Louis was asked whom he played BTY for first, there was a two-second pause that made me think of the time when Harry was asked about Sweet Creature (the Cooper Lawrence interview).
After the pause, Louis answered, “My girlfriend,” and pivoted to talk about Oli. Eleanor has never shown any interest in Louis’ music in any capacity. On the other hand, Louis does have a partner who knows music well enough to put out his own Gold-certified album.
Given his constraints, Louis is doing the best he can. Don’t feel like you have to read blogs or watch interviews, though– you might read just the highlights, or log off altogether. BTY is a really great song. Reach out to others and introduce them to this great song!
