Don’t miss The SNL Christmas Special this Wednesday at 9/8c!

Hi I saw the post about Louis and the closet, the fact that he constantly has to control his body language. So I wanted to ask you, do you think he will have a difficult time bouncing back to being completely himself when he's out? I'm talking in front of the cameras and not in private ofc. I just want your best guess and opinion on this subject :)

My best guess is that it won’t.

Apart from the Kimmel show and maybe a bit on Ellen too, during the Four promo we got glimpses of sassy, camp and flamboyant Louis. We slowly started to see that he is capable of being HIMSELF in front of the cameras. Australia, Swedish Idol, Dutch RTL, SNL OMG, NBC Christmas special… 

If we were ever doubting that he stayed true to himself, we got hit in the face with the DVD bts scenes (in the best way) and that was when we got confirmation that he has never changed, he was just taught how to control himself. When he is safe - with people he wants to be, loves and cares about - he lets go. 

I do wonder sometimes though if there is an exact script for him to follow. This might sound a bit crazy,

Let me explain why I think so: on Nov 18th when they taped the Christmas special he was himself. Then 2 days later on Kimmel and Ellen he was very restrained, looked at the ground a lot, smirked only for himself and was so disengaged in the conversations. But Kimmel was no Four Hangout, he asked some half-assed questions (dating a girl who pees herself?! ) yes, but nothing annoying to Louis. Clearly he was not comfortable. What is this big change? In 2 days. Maybe the fact that the Xmas special was aired on Dec 24th (a month later than Kimmel and Ellen)?

We got the best times during AMAS, and the entire Australian leg (ARIA’s, A current affair), then came the Swedish idol and the Dutch RTL, he acted himself, again. Graham Norton, himself again, in fact sitting next to Harry. SNL very much himself!!! Fallon, yes, again, himself. They damn look like following a script. Be that a HL seeding script or a script focusing solely on the steps of getting him out of this shell Modest forced on him.

Either way, I like it, I love it and I am ready for it!

If I look at this guy who has been presented to us for 2 months and asked him if he has any difficulty being himself, I am more than convinced he would choose to be himself. It is not like it was his decision to tone it down so much that we could not find the real Louis under the facade.

CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE BOYS BEING ON SNL AND THEN THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL AND THEN LOUIS WILL BE 23 MY HEART IS EXPLODING IM NOT READY
