Louis Tomlinson’s latest tweet has got fans far and wide scratching their heads.
The former One Direction member took to the social media platform on Wednesday (September 20) afternoon to post an incredibly cryptic update.
“Just like you,” tweeted Tomlinson. Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to start speculating what the three words could mean.
Some Twitter users, like @thisbemesara, were understandably frustrated that there wasn’t much context behind the tweet, asking Tomlinson to just release whatever he might be teasing.
One fan simply wanted answers.
“Explain this right now Louis Tomlinson,” demanded one fan with the username @lightsonlwt.
Meanwhile, others went straight to work trying to figure out what the hidden meaning behind Tomlinson’s words could be.
One popular theory seems to be that Tomlinson’s words could be referring to the title of a new track off his forthcoming debut solo album.
One of Tomlinson’s fans even pointed out that the singer has a tendency to end the titles of his songs with “you.”
“Back to YOU, Always YOU, Just like YOU,” wrote Twitter user @doncstahlwt.
Another fan even pointed out that Tomlinson has talked about a single called “Just Like You” in the past, and linked to an interview Tomlinson did over the summer.
“I found this so I think this could explain it,” tweeted Twitter user @tommoftcakes.
From there, she embedded a screenshot of Tomlinson speaking to the BBC in July about a track called “Just Like You” which talks about life as a celebrity.
“There’s one song I’m really attached to called ‘Just like You,’ which is all about this view of celebrities and that we’re impenetrable and almost not human, but fundamentally we all have the same problems,” said Tomlinson. “Heartbreak feels the same, loss feels the same, all these feelings are the same for all of us. Mine just look a load different to, maybe, Tom who works in the chippy from nine to five.”
It looks like Louis Tomlinson fans may have just cracked the code when it comes to the singer’s ominous tweet. Now all that’s left to do is wait to find out when Tomlinson plans on releasing his new single!
