1D singer Louis Tomlinson says the screaming fans are hurting his hearing!
He says, "I am going slightly deaf in my right ear. It's tinnitus . . . [or] something like that. All our fans are always very loud."
Britain's "Daily Mirror" tabloid dug up a source that was willing to comment on the horrific problem of having loud, screaming fans.
The source said, "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."
Of course, all of this has been blown out of proportion.
As it turns out, Louis made his comment while suffering a "really bad earache" and it has since "cleared up." So, he's perfectly fine.
Tinnitus is a serious condition marked by a ringing or some other persistent sound in one or both ears. One of the common causes of it is noise-induced hearing loss.
