One Direction fans cause Louis Tomlinson to go partially deaf

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is realizing the cost of being worshipped by millions of adoring fans. Tomlinson, one of the five members of the group, has developed tinnitus as a result of continuously being exposed to screaming fans. According to Huffington Post, before a gig Tomlinson said, “I am going slightly deaf in my right ear. It’s tinnitus… something like that. All our fans are always very loud, especially Scousers.” Scousers are people from the Liverpool, England area. One Direction’s management has now insisted that Tomlinson, along with the rest of the band – Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan – wear specially-made earpieces on stage to protect their hearing.  ~Isabelle Khoo

    But who will protect OUR hearing from One Direction’s music?
