24 Times Louis Was The Glue Of One Direction

Louis Tomlinson is known frequently as the bad-boy of One Direction. It seems as though every time you turn around there’s a new scandal concerning the young lad. What people fail to see is that, from the very beginning, Louis was pretty much the glue that kept One Direction from falling apart. This is a role you’d expect him to have, since he is the oldest one – thus making him the one with the most experience in life. His fellow band members probably go to him when they need advice or just a shoulder to lean on when things get tough. But have we managed to witness moments when Louis was the backbone for 1D? We sure have! In fact, there’s more than one!  So we’re here to bring you 24 (of the million) times Louis was the glue for 1D!
