I wish people would realize we dont see every side of Louis like yes in interviews he been confident but tht doesnt mean that any of his insecurities are any less valid. Like at the end of the day he is not 100% confidence all the time. And yeah a little bit is the narrative but he has always spoken about being insecure about his voice that's not new. And that the confident Louis that we see is also part of a narrative. Like he has multiple parts and is just like everyone else were now seeing it
Yup. He’s a very multi-faceted person and we saw a different side in this interview than he usually expresses. I’ve spoken about this a bunch of times before, but I think Louis often hides his vulnerabilities from fans and puts on a lot of bravado and loud confidence, and that’s a part of who he is, but we also know from paying attention to him and from tidbits of what the other boys have said about him that he is also very sensitive, loving, caring, soft, gentle, quiet, and so so so lovely. It’s like how we know from the other boys that he’s known to be a bit of a crier, but we’ve never REALLY seen him cry. We’ve seen him tearing up a few times, but he even tried to get a handle of himself after his TXF performance despite the overwhelming pain he must have been feeling at that time. Just because he doesn’t usually show this side of himself doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. This was a very vulnerable interview, in my opinion, and we haven’t gotten much of that from him in the past. And yes, the article pushed a particular underdog narrative, just as all print interviews push a certain narrative, but that doesn’t make the vast majority of the things he said any less honest.
