21 Reasons Louis Tomlinson Is the Hot Brit Who Should Be on Your Radar
It's hard to sum up my love for Louis Tomlinson, who I more affectionately call King Louis most of the time, because he's a talented man who deserves to be celebrated as such. Louis, formerly of One Direction fame, has gradually been breaking into the solo music scene since the group went on hiatus at the end of 2015. Last year, he and Steve Aoki collaborated on the dance hit "Just Hold On," and now Louis is back with another hit, this time with Bebe Rexha, called "Back to You."
Most likely, you haven't heard of Louis, because it seems like everyone only knows about Harry Styles, but I'm here to tell you that Louis is the one to watch. Back in the 1D days, Louis wrote a lot of the band's music, and now that he's a solo star, he's not only writing his own, but he's writing for other artists. He's out there doin' the damn thing and charming the world in the process. If you're not already familiar with him and his beautiful face, I'm here to help you out and bring you on board with us. I've got 21 reasons to love him here, though if you let me, I'd probably provide you with approximately 7,454,987,371,280 of them. But alas . . . here are 21.
He can rock old-school dad fashion
In his video for "Back to You," Louis went with some questionably amazing fashion choices, including this windbreaker that I think my dad had in 1989.
He's oh so charming
Even if he freezes in an interview, he'll still charm your socks off.
He has great hair
Most of the time. Sometimes it's questionable, but most of the time it's awesome.
He's an amazing dancer
JK, he can't dance at all, but he loves to pretend.
He looks great wet
I'm just sayin'.
His stage presence is insane
During One Direction's concerts, Louis loved to make a spectacle of himself by being obnoxious on stage. He was always out for a laugh.
Did I mention that he can sing?
Oh yes, his beautiful voice is his main draw.
But his face is a close second
Just look at it.
He also looks great from behind
A man with curves is a man for me.
He's passionate about his art
Louis deeply loves music, and you can feel that in everything he writes and sings.
He makes an awesome cat
Cat Louis on The Late Late Show will probably always be my favorite Louis.
He has mad talent for songwriting
Listen, Louis cowrote more than 30 of One Direction's songs. And at least 9/10 of them are my favorites.
He doesn't look too bad shirtless
And by "too bad," I mean he shouldn't wear a shirt ever.
His face is very expressive
Like this look, for example.
He loves tea
Whether you think I'm talking about the actual beverage or the gossipy drama is up to you. He may or may not enjoy both.
Just . . . damn.
Louis is a happy bunny who has had to deal with some sh*t in his life but stays positive and appreciative.
He was the backbone of One Direction
He was a leader, their voice, a rock for the other boys to lean on. He was a quietly crucial member.
His mess of tattoos
He has a lot of them, and most of them are horrendous (just like Harry's), but some of them are great. I personally love his naughts and crosses on his arm.
He loves his fans
He does. He loves us all.
