I can’t be too Zayn-y as a solo star…
THE thing Louis misses most about his One Direction bandmates is not being able to get away with ‘acting like a ‘d***head’.
The former teen star told how he and former partner-in-crime Zayn Malik were often up to no good — but Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan were all on hand to uphold 1D’s image.
Louis explained: ‘Sharing the burden is amazing. If we came to work one day and Zayn and I were being extra mischievous, we knew we could have a bit of a laugh because we are all going down together.
‘Whereas now if I came out acting like a bit of a d***head, it wouldn’t work as one guy.’
Take Me Home to feel most happy
HE HAS travelled all over the world and stayed in the fanciest hotels but, for Yorkshire-born Louis, nothing tops watching his mates trying to act like VIPs in the little-known haunts of Leeds.
Asked about his favourite moments, he told us: ‘I probably feel the best when I feel the most normal. I might go out with my friends in Leeds and it’s super-messy, and they say they’ve got a VIP table!… but it’s not really “VIP”,’ he mocked.
‘There will be nights where I might be pretty drunk and I will think to myself, “I almost forgot for a second that I am in the public eye and I am just enjoying myself as a normal person”.
‘Those times are amazing. Just in general — friends, family, seeing people all the time does a hell of a lot for me.’
