Louis Tomlinson Held One Direction Together at Times, Niall Horan Says

Louis Tomlinson recently said that he felt forgettable during the early days of One Direction, but we know that he was actually a huge part of the group.

In fact, the 25-year-old singer’s former bandmate Niall Horan said that Louis was the glue that held the band together.

“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Former One Direction member Niall Horan spoke out recently about how the media tries to make the former band members out to be rivals, though they aren’t at all — and now Louis Tomlinson is reaffirming that statement.

“We were always five best mates on the road; it was real nice,” the 25-year-old “Back to You” singer said to Noisey in a new interview, “and as time went on, we all began to understand each other.”

He went on to say that though their are “often misconceptions,” the five (Louis, Niall, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne) have managed to stay close.

“We’re all such good mates,” he continued, “If you look at the X Factor final, when I performed my song with Steve, all the boys came to support me, and I didn’t know until a couple of hours beforehand. It wasn’t one of those stupid f-king celebrity things where it’s like, ‘Let’s all get in a picture and put it on Instagram and show everyone that we’re best mates’ ­ – we didn’t even put it online. There are always those little things that people don’t hear about.”

We’re so glad that they have all stayed close and continued to support one another, especially after so many years working together.

You Can't Make The One Direction Guys Rivals In Their Solo Careers, Niall Horan Says

You Can't Make The One Direction Guys Rivals In Their Solo Careers, Niall Horan Says

Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne are all embarking on their solo music careers right now — but don’t expect them to say anything bad about the others.

The One Direction guys will always be supportive of each other, and you can’t create a rivalry between them.

“The media usually likes to create rivalry between us,” Niall shared in a new interview. “But it’s great that they can’t because we’re all releasing different types of music.”

He adds that all of them use each other as sounding boards for their new stuff, too.

“I’ve heard Liam’s new song and Louis’ stuff, and they’ve heard some of mine,” Niall says. “It’s good to have that because we will be honest with each other if we don’t like it, especially because we’ve done that for so many years.”

The group performed their first hit single “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Executive producer Dan Schneider uploaded the video to YouTube.

Louis Tomlinson Told His Mom When He Lost His Virginity

Louis Tomlinson Told His Mom When He Lost His Virginity

Louis Tomlinson was really, really close to his late mother Johannah Deakin.

The 25-year-old former One Direction singer even talked to her about his love life.

“I remember the day I lost my virginity. I hadn’t even told any of my mates and I was, like: ‘Mum? I know this is really weird. But I’ve got to tell you…” Louis told The Observer. “I remember thinking this is a bizarre conversation to be having with your mother. But it’s testament to how comfortable she made me.”

Johannah sadly lost her battle with leukemia back in December at the young age of 42.

Louis attributes their bond to how close they were in age, telling the outlet that she even “had the password to my email.”

Louis Tomlinson Felt Forgettable in One Direction's Early Days

Louis Tomlinson Felt Forgettable in One Direction's Early Days

Louis Tomlinson got really real about his days in One Direction, feeling like he was very forgettable in the group.

In his interview with The Observer, Louis sized up all his bandmates compared to him.

“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.’ 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. Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they’ve both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool. Liam’s all about getting the crowd going, doing a bit of dancing…”

“And then there’s me,” he says before adding his most important role was in the business side: “If there was any bad news that needed giving to the label I’d always be designated to have the argument.”

If you’re talking to your computer screen or phone right now, telling Louis that he wasn’t as forgettable as he thinks he was, he’ll tell you different again.

“You know I didn’t sing a single solo on the X Factor?” Louis remembers.

“A lot of people can take the piss out of that. But when you actually think 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?”
