It looks like Louis Tomlinson is heading in a new direction!
It's being reported that the One Direction heartthrob confirmed he is following in the footsteps of mentor Simon Cowell by starting his own record label!
The untitled label is an imprint of Cowell's Syco label, and the 23-year-old reportedly has already signed X Factor UK finalist Jack Walton!
Wow! Louis doesn't waste any time!

So, does this mean that Louis will pull a Zayn Malik and bring 1D to a threesome? It looks like we don't have to get our pitchforks ready yet, as he and the remaining band members are working on their next album.
The singer is really excited about this new opportunity to work with emerging artists, and said this about his new venture:
"This is something I've wanted to do for some time. To be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling. I hope to sign some really exciting new artists down the line."
It sounds like his heart's in the right place with this decision!
We support Louis's new career path and definitely look forward to 1D's upcoming album!
