I feel terrible! I'm a Larrie, but I'm also a Louie and I just can't be excited about Harry's projects because I know the moment his single drops everything is going to be about him and is just not fair. It sucks to see Louis is still stuck in all this bs and the minute Harry's back I feel like everyone's going to forget about the other 3. I really feel bad because I KNOW is not Harry's fault but he's not doing anything to change that perspective. Am I bad fan? Because I feel like I am 😞

I’m not sure why so many people are asking for reassurance today, and I really don’t know how being frustrated with the state of things makes anyone a “bad fan”. The way I see it, as a Larrie you HAVE to believe that Harry and Louis discuss this sort of thing. They support each other. They are the ones who have the full picture, not us. So if Harry is agreeing to promote himself in a certain way, assuming he has at least a good amount of control over what is going on with his image, then we have to assume that both he AND Louis think it’s the best way to proceed. There is no way in the world that you could believe H/L are in a long-term, committed partnership and also believe they would do anything that would fundamentally hurt each other. And, frankly, given what all four of them have been through together, I think all of them are doing what they can to support, advise, and encourage each other. AND there is only so much they can do because at the end of the day, even if they have a lot of control, none of them can say to their record label, “hey, don’t release my TV advert because my significant other is playing a music festival that day” or “don’t release it because my good friend is announcing the birth of his baby that day”. You know? There’s going to be give and take from all of them.

AND, I totally get where you’re coming from. Harry news, no matter how small, will dominate everything for a while. And Louis (even with the shitty team he’s got - at least, publicly) knows that. My thought is the other three would sit back and wait for the frenzy to die down before launching anything new. I would imagine other artists would do the same - the industry knows that solo Harry is going to make a huge splash. It’s the same with movie releases. No one wants to release their film on the same weekend the super hyped blockbuster is being released -unless it appeals to a completely different audience. 

As I said before, I take a wait and see approach to these things. I’m not in the music industry, but I trust that OT4 have the best teams they could get at this stage and that those teams know what they’re doing. It doesn’t mean we have to necessarily like it all, but my assumption is that they’re going for industry longevity while doing their best to keep true to themselves. As for Louis, I do think he’s got people advising him besides the terrible “team” he publicly is working with. And he’s whip smart. I truly do feel it will all be OK in the end AND I feel you completely that it sucks terribly that he has to go through all of this bullshit before he comes out on top. But I have no doubt he’ll come out on top at the end of this shit storm.

Harry, Niall and Liam all wanted to be there to support Louis tonight for what was undoubtedly one of the most difficult moments of his life.

“It was an incredible and special thing for them to get back together as a four and be like brothers again.

Niall flew in overnight from New York so he could be there and Liam came from Los Angeles. It was that important they were together.

They were all in Louis’s dressing room together and it was obviously an incredible emotional night.”
