English pop singer/tween scream factory Louis Tomlinson was being interviewed by BBC Northern Ireland presenter Stephen Nolan yesterday when he got a little testy, as pop stars are wont to do. He was rankled that Nolan hadn't heard the latest One Direction single, "Perfect." It's a fair point — Nolan was interviewing him about the song, and everyone else in the world has heard it. Plus, you can understand Tomlinson's frustration as he watches his once-invincible band disintegrate like the Roman Empire. Then again, his reaction was probably over the top.
When Nolan admitted he hadn't heard the song, Tomlinson told him, "You should have before this interview, you little shit." Then he condescendingly swatted Nolan on the shoulder, prompting the Northern Irishman to warn him, "Don't touch me." Then they just continued like it hadn't gotten weird. They can just brush things off like that across the pond; it's remarkable.
