Louis Tomlinson: For a long time I felt like I had a lot to prove
Ouis Tomlinson says he long felt he had “a lot to prove” but has now “got over that idea in my head”.
The former One Direction member said there have been times when he’s “swimmed against the current” but is “proud” of what he’s achieved.
The singer-songwriter attended the red carpet premiere of his new documentary All Of These Voices in London on Thursday.
The film gives audiences an intimate and candid look into Tomlinson’s life and career through never-before-seen home video footage and a behind-the-scenes look at his sold-out 2022 world tour.
“Watching this film definitely makes me very proud because sometimes I’ve gone against the grain or life was a little bit more difficult, more challenging,” he told the PA news agency.
“And overall that gives me a lot of hope for the future.”
Tomlinson was joined at the premiere by One Direction member Liam Payne, who he said “makes the world”.
“Everyone is always very supportive. We’re all very, very busy and so I wasn’t sure if any of them would make it,” he said.
He added that the film and the past year in which his second studio album, Faith In The Future was released, “has definitely been a real milestone for me in my career.”
“For a long time it felt like I had a lot to prove. I think I’ve gotten past that idea in my head now,” he said.
“It’s super cliche for me, but it’s just about being the best artist I can be for my fans because they’re the reason I can do stuff like that.”
All Of These Voices explores Tomlinson’s journey from a member of One Direction to a solo artist, capturing the challenges and triumphs that have shaped his journey.
In 2019, Tomlinson’s sister Felicite died of an accidental drug overdose, three years after his mother Johannah died of leukemia in 2016.
His film will hit theaters worldwide beginning Wednesday, March 22nd.
