ok. i’m fucking tired. i’m fucking tired of watching louis pour his heart out and talk honestly about himself and what he’s been through all this time, and have the focus NOT be on him and his upcoming music at all.
it’s just astounding to me. he said so much about how left out he felt in one direction, how he only really started to gain his confidence back in the last year. and how his mother was a huge source of that self-confidence, but then he lost her. it’s just so heartbreaking, louis and jay were so so close, in interviews when they asked mum-related questions like “who’s most likely to call their mum?” the answer was ALWAYS louis. without a doubt. and he lost that.
he’s learning to step out into the spotlight as his own man, even though he’s been taking all the heat for one direction all these years. people view him as the worst singer, but so much of his talent and contributions are showcased behind the scenes, in songwriting and being the mouthpiece of the band. he’s so underrated and it’s heartbreaking to discover that he didn’t know if he was making a big enough contribution. louis, you’re the reason i fell in love with one direction in the first place.
the interview was so raw, so real, and so so important. but now it’s all about the conflicts, the new speculations that rise along with it. IT’S ALL PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT NOW.
solo harries who think louis is trying to play the victim or some shit, he’s fucking not. he mentioned harry (like he mentioned the other boys), in a good way, in comparison to himself and to draw out an example of the differences from being in the band to being his own solo artist. louis is so used to being compared to the other members, it was only natural for him to say something like that. harry’s not that special, and louis is not trying to use him or bring him down in any way.
when he talks about fighting against the hiatus…. it was about him finally gaining confidence and footing as part of the band. after 5 years. but everyone, even louies, are making it about harry. like seriously? who tf cares who the main “culprit” of the hiatus originally was? what’s done is done, this is about louis’s journey in overcoming his insecurities, not about speculations that harry styles is some kind of evil selfish rat. i couldn’t give less of a fuck about harry rn.
AND STOP BRINGING UP ELOUNOR AND FREDDIE. there was a single sentence about freddie, and a picture of elounor, they were hardly relevant to the big picture so it doesnt fuckin matter. i dont care what’s a stunt or not, i care about louis’s work and his growth as a musician. thank you very much.
