The Sirius interviewers were awful, but this is on Louis' team. The dude has a reputation for this, so they'd have anticipated these Qs (and they'd clearly blacklisted the topics they wished to truly avoid). So this is his team's PR strategy in action. Also, Louis had talking points prepared like mentioning the birthday. And he followed up by posting the baby chair. I think he didn't expect that bone-headed tactic about his mom, but again: he was set up for that.
exactly. the host is a dickhead but as i have been saying for the whole week EVERY host will ask him about it cause simon jones will use this for promo and allow questions about it. If he allowed him to ask about Jay despite how uncomfortable it is for Louis, imagine what they’ll do with a stunt purposely created to get publicity. simon jones doesnt do anything else but reducing louis to this and damage his image to general public/fans’ eyes even more. how could people think they wont use this for the entire promo if this happened and its just day 1? thats why i didnt want him to do anything before it could end, looks like its not so get ready. i
am just sorry for louis who has to deal with his personal stuff PLUS THIS on top, and also steve who gets to be ignored in favour of people asking louis if he wrote lullabies instead of focusing on their music and their project.
