Louis Tomlinson Said That He Felt Like The ‘Forgettable’ One In One Direction & His Words Will Break Your Heart
Louis Tomlinson may have been a member of the most famous boyband ever, but heartbreakingly he didn’t see himself in such a positive light.
The One Direction member opened up in a candid interview with The Guardian about his experience in 1D, and to everyone’s surprise he acknowledged that he was seen as the “forgettable” one in the band.
“The others have always been…like Niall, for example. He’s the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he’s fearless. There are times I’ve thought: ‘I’d have a bit of that,’” Louis told The Guardian.
“Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that.”
Louis also praised his bandmates’ Harry Styles and Liam Payne stating, “Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry…Harry comes across very cool. Liam’s all about getting the crowd going…and then there’s me.”
Louis revealed that he even questioned his role in the band when One Direction was formed on the X Factor back in 2010.
“I didn’t sing a single solo on the X Factor,” Louis said. “A lot of people can take the piss out of that. But when you actually thinking about how that feels, standing on stage every single week, thinking: ‘What have I really done to contribute here? Sing a lower harmony that you can’t really hear in the mix?’”
The ex 1D’er also admitted that he is facing the struggle of getting big names in the music biz to write songs with him.
“I couldn’t say to you now that I could definitely get a superstar writer in a session with me. And I understand that. Harry wont struggle with any of that,” he said.
BRB, just crying ‘coz we’re officially heartbroken over Louis’ words.
