There have been some stars over the years who can lose touch with their roots once they become huge global superstars, forgetting where they came from and who their real friends are. However, when it comes to Louis Tomlinson, who became a huge global superstar with One Direction, things are a bit different, as Louis has admitted that he likes to keep his feet on the ground.
During a recent interview with Noisey, Tomlinson shared, "I always ask how would my friends from Doncaster – who know nothing about music and fashion – would interpret an outfit or a song or whatever. That has always really helped me. Because if you get to a stage where you disconnect from those friends from home, other people don’t really dare go there... You can surround yourself with super successful celebrities, but you can get swallowed up in the glitz and the glam of it all."
As well as talking about making sure that he keeps his feet firmly on the ground and remembers his roots, Louis Tomlinson also spoke about what the future holds for himself in the music industry. Louis insists that one of the key factors about the future music he releases, will have to be that he is comfortable with the songs he chooses.
Tomlinson added, "'In ten years time, the most important thing for me is that I’ll deliver a good album that people connect with, and then after that... who knows? I’ll set myself a new target. As soon as you start to feel comfortable, it’s a dangerous place to be in."
We look forward to seeing just what the future does actually hold for Louis Tomlinson and how his solo career will hold up to that of his former One Direction band mates. We also look forward to seeing just how long it will be before a One Direction reunion takes place.
