Louis Tomlinson slams Back to You radio censorship

Louis Tomlinson is not happy the lyrics to his song Back To You have been changed to make them appropriate for radio, insisting they should just be omitted.

The One Direction star and Bebe Rexha's collaboration details a toxic relationship and the song's lyrics includes several inappropriate words.

"Whoa, you stress me out, you kill me/You drag me down, you f**k me up/We're on the ground, we're screaming/I don't know how to make it stop/I love it, I hate it, and I can't take it/But I keep on coming back to you," they sing on the track. "And I guess you'll never know/All the bulls**t that you put me through."

However, the versions on the radio have been censored and the inappropriate words have been changed. After a fan pointed out the lyric change to Tomlinson, he admitted he recorded the cleaner version, but would have preferred if the lines would have been left out.

"Its not cool to change the lyric," he wrote in response to a fan that suggested the change was better then hearing nothing. "Changes the severity. It's supposed to feel a little intense. I just won't record the lyric change next time."

However, after a fan informed the singer the lyric had been changed to something he didn't record, he once again railed against the practise.

"I've never heard that," he wrote. "Radio Disney won't play it without nice clean language..."

"honestly this is f**king stupid," he added. "get that some radios need to blank it but making up new lyrics is daft."
