It’s not all glamour being in One Direction, you know. Boybanders have the same mundane problems as all of us lot. Tourbuses not turning up on time. Blue M&Ms when we *specifically* asked for them to be removed. Bellybutton fluff. In fact, we’re sure we’ve seen Harry Style’s bellybutton fluff on eBay…
Anyway, the lovely Louis Tomlinson has been suffering from a very unglamorous popstar injury, telling a Liverpool radio station: “I am going slightly deaf in my right ear. It’s tinnitus… something like that. All our fans are always very loud, especially Scousers!” That’s right, the screams and squeals of thousand of One Direction fans have left our Louis’s ears ringing like the 1D cash registers.
A mole* from the band’s entourage explained all of this to the press: “Screams during gigs have started affecting the boys on stage. They are only young and still developing, so management insist they wear hi-tech earpieces and filters to reduce the volume of the screaming and the music.”
The mole went on to reassure fans that Louis has fully recovered. We do hope he remembers those ear protectors in the future. How are we meant to tell him we love him otherwise?
*not an actual mole. That would be silly.
