flipping off paps

anonymous asked:

The girl flipping off the paps makes me think of Alana Haim doing the same that night last Nov that Taylor and Haim, her mom, Claire, etc. went to see Joe's movie & Taylor was trying to hide and Este and Alana were helping her.

yassssss omg so much like that!!!

Note the secretive smile as he continually flips off the paps while they believe him to be giving a peace sign. 

He’s done this since he was a child starting with a school picture. 

In one photo shoot he flashes a peace sign then coyly shoots the v sign.

It’s his way of not being rude in a playful way.

He never uses it in the UK as it is the epitome of rude there.  lol

This is for the paparazzi only because further into the video he passes some people seated who work for the airlines and seems a bit embarrassed and waves at them instead before turning back to the paps and flipping them off again

Eloquent and succinct.

Why does everyone dislike louis' friends i mean i heard one nasty thing about calvin but like what have the rest of them done?or is it like some general bad vibe from them bc i dont get it??

okay, i’m gonna try to explain:

stan - said some really disgusting things on his twitter a while ago. i’m too lazy to look them up but he mobbed fans (especially larries) a while ago and said some “problematic” things

calvin - you already mentioned that one story told by coolbreeeze. I met him and Stan and Oli at Louis’ match last month and he said that the 1D fans who ask them for pics are “annoying” and they (calvin, oli and stan) talked about them in a way that made me really uncomfortable (as a 1D fan, standing right next to them)

oli - i don’t like him flipping off paps, at the end of the day they are only doing their job and as long as they don’t mob them i just think it’s disrespectful. plus he gets lots of girls because of louis’ fame so he should accept that there are negative aspects as well

luke - didn’t hear anything bad about him

nizam - didn’t hear anything bad about him either and i like that he seems to have his own life besides touring with louis, i think he studies and posts a lot of nice things on his insta and he just seems to be a really nice guy

obviously i don’t know any of them personally so this is just what i think about them from what i’ve seen/heard

tbh calum probably flipped the paps off bc magazines and shit can’t use pics of celebs w the middle finger.. and also bc he’s a cocky lil shit who turns me tf oN AND NEEDS TO PUT THOSE FINGERS AWAY BEFORE I SIT ON THEM

I just saw gifs of a video where Lou was drunk flipping off paps... idk if there's more bc like, I'm still looking at my dash and catching up with it all, but what do you make of it? was that just him really drunk or something that what somewhat planned? bc either way, along with the weed thing, it cannot be good for the image they were trying to make for him now. the business man one... is just him being perceived in a bad light again/still... =/

I think he probably wasn’t THAT drunk. 

LOL You definitely wanna announce your drunkenness to the loathsome paparazzi. And no doubt they knew the paps were gonna be there. Just like they knew pix in the hotel suite were being taken. Not only would Louis have to be pretty dumb to get in this predicament by accident, everyone accompanying him (friends, Preston) would have to be pretty dumb too. I don’t think this is a part of his rebranding. Businessman Louis seems to be a new team thing. Partyboy Louis seems to be a Modest thing. 

I definitely think we’re seeing dueling narratives play out which only adds to the confusion of wth 1D is even trying to do. I’m still trying to figure out what I think, honestly. But right now I would say Modest is still playing the 1D is falling apart narrative. And this benefits Modest because:

  • They’re pushing OTRA as a “last chance” tour so they make as much money as possible off it.
  • They want to sabotage 1D’s success going forward, allowing them to save face after losing them as a client.
  • They can also spin it that 1D were a mess from day one, held together only with their masterful management. *throws up in mouth* 

Modest is probably using the contractual power they still hold to get Louis to cooperate (and Zayn with Perrie, Liam with Sophia, Niall with Melissa and Harry in exile) along with some probable dirty arm twisting too. The good news is that there does seems to be a new team on the scene looking out for everyone. This stunt won’t go unanswered.
