holy fuck some of you are so annoying.
this is what the interviewer said before Louis brought Freddie up:
“Last time I saw you was in Sheffield. It was like two days before One Direction’s tour came to an end, and so you were about to step out into this great big unknown. And obviously, an awful lot has happened for you, there’s been some highs and some lows. I feel like you can’t go through that and not come out a slightly different person. I was wondering, what have you learned in that sort of year, nearly approaching sort of two year period?”
what are the three big things that have happened in Louis’ life during that time frame, at least according to the general public’s perception. 1) him becoming a father, 2) his mother’s death, and 3) his arrest. i highly doubt he finds it enjoyable to talk about his mother’s death, which was obviously incredibly painful for him, and which he has almost never spoken about in non-print interviews, and he’s not supposed to talk about his arrest, as they’ve said.
do you guys really think it would’ve made sense for him to answer that question without mentioning BECOMING A FATHER?!?!?!? come on. he’s a dad according to the general public and when he gets questions like that, i’m not at all surprised that he would bring the kid up “unprompted.” obviously if he had actually become a dad, fatherhood would have taught him things and changed him as a person? like? his answer was fucking painful to watch, he was vague and awkward as hell, and some of y’all are out here acting like he just brought the kid up for the hell of it and he did something to YOU. he’s the one living through this, remember? can you guys cut him some fucking slack ever?
