Now before you go off on one Directioners, this post is purely speculative and we aren’t claiming that there are any One Direction feuds or tensions behind the scenes, but naturally, some members of the band are going to be closer than others.
For a while it looked like the big 1D bromance was going to be between Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson but that looks like it’s dead in the water (or if you’re a Larry Shipper maybe you think it’s all just being hidden from view) and now, we think Louis and Zayn Malik have become proper BFFs.
In a recent interview with Hot Hits Liam Payne and Zayn were chatting about their bandmate and his recent spot of sickness while on tour.
Louis struggled with some throat problems a few weeks ago during their Australia shows and when asked if that was a problem for the band, Payne insisted that because they never mime, they can always provide cover when one of their members are feeling poorly.
“The good thing about us is that we don’t mime in any situation. I think it’s stupid, especially when you’re in a band.”
“We don’t need to. We just cover each other, we help each other out. If somebody is ill, somebody will covet their parts or help them out and sing with them.”
So the DJ then asked the pair if Tomlinson decided on his spontaneous trip to Fiji because he’d been feeling under the weather but the boys revealed that actually, it was during his jaunt that he’d fallen ill.
However, it turns out that Zayn knew Louis was going away for a few days and even got an invitation. Liam didn’t find out until after he’d gone.
“He got ill after that [his trip to Fiji], when he came back. He is just crazy, he does things on spur of the moment. We literally landed in Melbourne and we just got into our hotel room and five minutes after he goes ‘I am going to Fiji, do you want to come?'”
Zayn turned him down and decided to relax in his hotel for a few days instead.
“He is just crazy as! I only found out in the morning, I was like ‘Where’s Louis?’. That’s how he works. He is completely spontaneous….good luck with that one.”
Louis and Zayn have been joining forces a lot more recently and Malik really had his pal’s back during a recent Twitter spat with Nick Grimshaw.
The Bradford bad boy was straight in there with his defence when the Radio 1 DJ called his friend a ‘complainy pop star’ while the rest of the band, including Harry (who is also pretty close chums with Grimmy) stayed quiet on the matter.
What do you think Directioners? Are we totally barking up the wrong tree with this one? Leave your comments below….
