Struggling Solo Artist Louis Tomlinson Misses The Easy Fun Of His One Direction Days

Louis Tomlinson Misses The Easy Fun Of His One Direction Days As He Embarks On Difficult Solo Career featureLouis Tomlinson sat down with MTV to answer some fan questions about his songwriting, his fame and the differences between being a member of One Direction and being a solo artist. The “Back to You” singer’s confidence has been surging in recent interviews, but that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to keep it real when asked about his past, present and future.

“It’s definitely a lot harder,” Louis said of being a solo artist. “I’m sure everyone would say that.”When we first went into the band, you know, we were very young and we all got on so well that we felt kind of impenetrable at that time. So, I think, naturally as you got older and also now I’m out on me own, you feel the pressures more, I suppose. I don’t think either is better or worse.”

There is one big difference Louis has noticed, though.

“In terms of fun, of course it’s got to be more fun when you’re in the band and you’ve got people to share it with,” he shared.

Louis also discussed regretting his tattoos and his hopes for his upcoming album.

One Direction’s “Forgettable” Louis Tomlinson Has His Groove Back

One Direction's Forgettable Louis Tomlinson Has His Groove Back featureLouis Tomlinson made it sounds like he was having some self-esteem issues in an interview about his solo career earlier this year. Despite his criticisms of the entertainment industry, the One Direction singer seems to have rediscovered his confidence. In a new interview with Billboard, he discussed performing his new song “Back to You” at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards and what’s next. But he revisited his 1D-induced depression, too.

“When I was talking about that, I was talking about how I felt at a specific time in the band,” Louis said of calling himself the “forgettable” member. “I don’t necessarily feel like that now. But that’s what kind of drove me to want to be a big songwriter with the band, to gain an identity of sorts.” Breaking out as a solo artist is apparently helping Louis’ head grow.

“I just feel like I’m getting stronger and more confident with each single, and I’m definitely still learning as a songwriter and an artist on my own as well,” he said.” It’s exciting for me, and to have the support of the fans is always amazing — I definitely feel like they’ve got my back.” Louis said his next single and his up-coming album will be an even purer versions of his true self.

With his music not an option, Niall had to choose between “Sign of the Times,” “Strip That Down” or “Just Hold On” as his favorite One Direction solo debut. However, the singer went outside of the listed picks and chose Louis Tomlinson’s newest single, “Back To You” featuring Bebe Rexha. “It’s very very good,” Niall says. “It’s going to be a big hit, I think.”

Louis Tomlinson Crushes Directioners’ Hopes And Dreams Once And For All

Louis Tomlinson may have confirmed 1D's EndLouis Tomlinson has finally made his way onto “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.” Better late than never, the singer was there promoting his newest single and may have ended up breaking the heart of some Directioners.

While Elvis began listing off memorable moments of Louis’ life–both good and bad–the radio host included “the breakup of this band which was a worldwide phenomenon.” Calling One Direction’s hiatus a “breakup” could have been just a slip of the tongue for the host, but it was the singer’s silence that may cause fans to believe One Direction is actually over.

Previously, the One Direction members have reassured fans that the group’s hiatus was just temporary, but Niall Horan recently confirmed that a One Direction reunion isn’t in the near future.

Louis Tomlinson Slams Justin Bieber For Tour Cancellation: “You Should See It Through”

Louis Tomlinson On Justin Bieber's Purpose Tour Cancellation- You Should See It ThroughLouis Tomlinson has some thoughts about Justin Bieber’s decision to cut his lengthy “Purpose World Tour” short. The One Direction singer opened up in a radio interview about what it means to leave fans hanging and when it’s okay to take time for yourself.

“Obviously, you have to be in a good position mentally,” Louis said, possibly referring to some of Justin’s unhinged behavior. “But I also think, to a certain degree, when you’re signing up to something, you should see it through.”

“There’s never enough that I can say or do for the fans,” the world tour veteran said. He made it clear that, for him, nothing comes before his customers. “At the end of the day, it’s the people who are buying the records that are putting you where you are,” he added.

Apparently, Louis doesn’t exactly approve of Justin’s decision, even if he understands why he made it.

Check out Louis’ entire interview below.
