One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson probably doesn’t like being compared to Justin Bieber, any more than his bandmates Niall Horan, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne do. Unfortunately, last night’s altercation at a Los Angeles International Airport described in the Chicago Tribune might just invite such a comparison.
Now both Justin Bieber, and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction have been arrested for fighting paparazzi, Still, there were some differences between Justin Bieber’s behavior and Tomlinson’s behavior in the situation. There is a lot more about that below.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan don’t like being compared to pop artists like Justin Bieber. Niall Horan was likely offended when Simon Cowell said he wanted to turn Horan into some sort of Justin Bieber clone.
Niall Horan of One Direction quite likely fled Simon Cowell’s solo contract and signed with Capitol UK, because Niall Horan did not want to be thought of in the same way as Justin Bieber, who is experiencing major public image issues. There were other reasons, but the Justin Bieber reference would not have helped Cowell’s cause.
Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne of One Direction do not want to be associated with Justin Bieber’s old bubble gum pop music image, nor his new violent, troubled youth image. One Direction is currently revamping their image, but Justin Bieber is not a person they’d want to emulate right now.
One Direction’s Niall Horan dumped Simon Cowell and signed with Capitol UK, soon after Simon suggested Niall Horan could become the next Justin Bieber, according to The Sun.
“[Simon Cowell] has made no secret of his expectations for Niall [Horan] to stay loyal to him and has been desperately trying to keep him as a solo act with plans to turn him into a Justin Bieber style artist.”
Now One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has been arrested in seemingly similar fashion to Justin Bieber. But is it really similar?
Justin Bieber is actually wanted for assault in Argentina and has outstanding cases in at least two states on various assault charges. Justin Bieber was also arrested in his native Canada for assault as well.
