From The HOT Show
If you have been to a One Direction concert you know that the screaming can be loud! However, is it so loud that it is affection Louis hearing?
This is a quote from Louis “I am going slightly deaf in my right ear. It’s tinnitus . . . [or] something like that. All our fans are always very loud.”
A source told the Daily Mirror, quote, “Screams during gigs have started affecting the boys on stage. They’re young and still developing, so management insists they wear high-tech earpieces and filters to reduce the volume of the screaming and the music.”
By the way Tinnitus is a serious condition marked by a ringing or some other persistent sound in one or both ears.
Of course this was taken out of context and Louis made the comment when he had a severe ear infection and the entire thing was cleared up.
A source says he is perfectly fine.
