One Direction star vows to boycott BBC Breakfast after awkward interview

One Direction star vows to boycott BBC Breakfast after awkward interview”

Louis Tomlinson has said he will now be boycotting BBC Breakfast after an ill-fated appearance this morning (February 3rd).

The tweet sparked many responses - including one from Dan Walker, one of the hosts of the program, who asked Louis what exactly caused him to be so upset. His sister Félicité, 18, died last March after an accidental overdose.

When the interview was over, Tomlinson wrote on Twitter: 'Defo wont be going on there again Haha!

Specifically, Louis was talking about his songwriting process and writing from his life experiences, when he was asked, "Do you feel that at some stage that, 'Oh, I've put too much of yourself in there, ' or is that part of helping you in writing that way, about the loss of your mother and your sister and other things?"

Afterwards, when quizzed about a One Direction reunion, Tomlinson answered, "You've ticked them all off now, you've got; trauma, Zayn, and now we're finally on this one".

After the show, Louis got into a Twitter back-and-forth with one of the show's hosts and he further explained his position. It goes without saying how hard it is to lose the two people so close to me. "Can I ask what you are upset about?"

Louis Tomlinson would prefer not to talk about the personal tragedies he's endured as he promotes his new solo album.

The offending moment in the interview seemed to come when Dan and Louise asked a series of questions about Two of Us, his new track about his mum. "Love to all my fans for always having my back (sic)".

"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, I suppose". We know it is painful, which is why we haven't dealt with it. No intention of upsetting you or being "talkative" about it. "We all have a lot in our dishes and there could be a day when I wake up and think:" Okay, I want to correct that wrong, "but not yet", he said. This is not our style at #BBCBreakfast.

"How about asking him about his music next time?"
