If you were looking for some One Direction news that won't render you a senseless pile of weeping garbage screaming at cardboard cutouts of Zayn and Louis to "just make up already," then you've come to the right place. When he isn't subtweeting about permanent middle-schooler Naughty Boy, Louis Tomlinson is hitting up a few Los Angeles clubs. This may be because he is a famous 23-year-old with infinite access to literally everything on this planet and all of the planets that orbit the sun, but it also might have something to do with his recent breakup.

According to Perez Hilton, Louis sure did hit the town last night (May 5), and Perez seems certain that Louis was celebrating Cinco de Mayo. But we have a feeling that every night is a liquor-infused event for most famous boy-banders — and that Louis had no idea what U.S. state he was in, let alone the fact that it was a day of commemoration for Mexico to celebrate its victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla.

Regardless: Louis was out, he was most likely drinking, photographers caught wind of this and took photos. This upset Louis to the point of giving said photographers the finger, which was a really smart move on his part because the presence of cameras means the immortalization of this pose on film forever. If you're curious, you can check out those photos here.

While some speculate that Louis' sudden propulsion into the party scene has something to do with his recent split from longterm girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, we have a feeling he might be trying to numb the pain of losing Zayn.

Aaand "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" plays faintly in the background, forever.
