It's no secret that the guys of One Direction got their start on X Factor, and one of the judges on the panel when they were competing was Louis Walsh. He has been a force in the entertainment industry for years and he's know the guys of 1D from the very start. In a new interview though, he got real, and shared his true thoughts about the band and it's safe to say he threw some major shade. Essentially, he thinks Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and former member Zayn Malik just got lucky and later on weren't as nice as when they first started out.
"Simon’s made so many people millionaires, but not everybody’s loyal to him. We create monsters in the music business – they only become famous because they’ve been on the show and we got you those songs. They’re lucky, but some get a sense of entitlement and believe the hype. Too many artists appear to forget where they came from," Louis dished.
Ouch, that is not nice to hear! He then went on to say that he completely feels any chance of the band reuniting is simply unrealistic and they are done forever.
"Yeah, I would say so. Some of them believed the hype and then everyone around them – publicists, agents, managers – were afraid to tell them because they were making so much money out of them," he said.
OK, now this is all just too much to handle! We don't know what's worse to hear: that some of the guys really think the group is going to reunite one day or that others around them knew the truth and didn't tell them. We have a feeling if Harry, Liam, Niall and Louis decided to give things another go, fans would be right there waiting with open arms.
