Nonostante Louis Tomlinson has suffered terrible losses in his life, he’s committed to keeping positive.
“You know what, maybe because I’ve had real dark moments in my life, they’ve given me scope for optimism. In the grand scheme of things, of what I’ve experienced, these everyday problems…they don’t seem so bad,” Tomlinson told The Telegraph.
Tomlinson’s mother, Johannah Deakin, morto nel 2016 dopo una battaglia contro il cancro. Lei era 43 Anni. Il suo 18-year-old sister, Félicité, morto nel 2019 from an accidental overdose.
The musician dedicated his new single “Two of Us” from his album WALLS to his mother. He sings, “It’s been a minute since I called you, you’ll never know how much I miss you, the day that they took you.”
Of his record, Tomlinson explained to The Telegraph, “Sai, because of my story, my album was a little heavy at times and a little somber and as I’m sure you’re aware, from talking to me, adesso, that isn’t who I am.”
The singer added how he doesn’t “like people feeling sorry for me. That’s the last thing I want.”
Di nuovo dentro 2017, Tomlinson said his mother’s death almost broke him at the time. “But it was my mum who said to me that I’ve just got to keep going,” disse Tabellone. “She told me very sternly that she wanted me to.”
Nel 2019, Tomlinson echoed his sentiments to Il guardiano. Ha descritto, “That whole dark side I’ve gone through, it sounds stupid to say, but it gives me strength everywhere else in my life because that’s the darkest sh*t that I’m going to have to deal with.”
“So it makes everything else… not feel easier and not less important, but in the grand scheme of things, you see things for what they are,” Ha aggiunto.
“I’ve turned something that’s really dark into something that empowers me, makes me stronger,” Louis explained to the outlet at the time. “I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. That’s not how I feel for myself. Somehow it fuels me.”
