Louis Tomlinson has arrived back in London following a PDA-filled stay in Chicago with lover Danielle Campbell. The One Direction star appeared in high spirits as he loitered with fans at Heathrow airport, smoking and cracking jokes and even speaking a bit of French for the cameras.
Louis appeared to establish a rapport with the fans, taking his time to hang out with them and chatting with them in a relaxed and friendly way. Fans observed that it has been a while since Louis, who has been making headlines for breaking up with baby mama Briana Jungwirth, appeared so chilled out.
Perhaps the sojourn with Originals actress Danielle Campbell did the star good. Danielle and Louis were photographed regularly during his time in Chicago, holding hands, buying food, and even singing happy birthday to the actress’s cousin in a video posted on Snapchat.
Louis’ jab at a camera-wielding girl named Erin after he arrived at Heathrow was all in good fun, delivered off the cuff as Tomlinson was making his exit, and eliciting giggles from the assembled Directioners.
Louis dropped the s-word twice, also using it to describe his own French-language speaking skills when some fans urged him to attempt the language. Louis makes his first attempt crouching with a cigarette:
The One Direction star reflected that the fans may be setting him up “to say something stupid” but continued to sound the French words for the appreciative audience, declaring that “it’s good to learn something new.”
The One Direction star, who turns 24 tomorrow, is taking a break from touring and releasing albums. Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan will be back after 18 months, and have cited a “need to reflect on what has happened” during their busy five years as a group, as well as a desire to spend time with family, when asked about their reasons for taking a hiatus, as reported by E! Online.
Louis Tomlinson is rumored to be joining the X Factor judging panel during the break. Tomlinson, who enjoys a particularly close friendship with Syco boss Simon Cowell, was thought to be a good fit because “he won’t be afraid to tell someone they’re terrible,” reports the Mirror.
“Louis is the most outspoken of the group… Simon loves that”
The sassy One Direction star once again demonstrated that he is not averse to strong language and spontaneous jabs when he arrived at Heathrow and called that fan a cheeky name.
It’s not even the first time Tomlinson has publicly called someone a “little s**t.” The star made headlines when he shot the insult at a reporter who failed to listen to the new One Direction track “Perfect” before the interview.
The reporter confirmed that it was just “a bit of banter” and called Louis Tomlinson “a nice guy.”
Should Louis Tomlinson make this his X-Factor catchphrase if he is invited to judge?
