Louis Tomlinson: Simon Cowell dragged me down to LA for a tongue-lashing
THEY couldn’t be more pally these days but Louis Tomlinson still remembers being at the receiving end of a ticking-off from Simon Cowell.
The pop star recalled being flown to Los Angeles for a slap on the wrist after boozing ahead of a One Direction gig. ‘He gave me a dressing-down,’ shuddered Louis, 25.
‘That felt like the Simon you see on television. If I hadn’t had that chat, though, I don’t think we would be as close as we are now.’
At least he was carpeted in style after Cowell flew him over in first class and put him up at the Four Seasons hotel. Louis, whose solo single Back To You is out now, said his album is ‘90 per cent complete’. The full interview is from 10am tomorrow on Matt Edmondson’s Radio 1 show.
