The Wanted, ‘One Direction Aren’t Rivals’

the-wanted-pix-32


The Wanted People interview. ‘Glad You Came’ reached number five on US charts last week. Nathan: ‘If you look at One Direction’s chart position and then look at ours, they’re not really even our rivals. They have different fans to us. We don’t want their fans, they’re too young. We laugh and say that their fans are our fans’ younger sisters. We have our own success going on in America and it isn’t just with the music. We are extremely fortunate to have the best-looking fans, they are absolutely beautiful, so fit. But there is one big difference between the American ones and the British ones.

We find British girls very cute but very shy so they take a bit more hard work to crack. On the other hand, the American girls are forward and loud. We’re cleaning up with the Americans. If they’re interested then we will know about it, they will tell us they’re interested and then we swap numbers. Let’s just say that after that it usually ends up in a positive outcome. We find we have to try a lot harder with our British fans. We can’t wait until the American spring break because we are going to Las Vegas. Our tour manager has told us that he is not going to stop until he has got us the fittest girls there so that is something some of the boys and I are definitely very much looking forward to. We’re mostly all players, apart from Max, who is going out with Michelle.

She loves hearing our stories about us and our fans. Michelle loves getting involved in the gossip, sometimes she comes to watch us perform with a load of her friends and she tries to palm them off on us. Once this battle is over with One Direction we are going to take them for a drink, and we’ll show them who can drink the most. I think they will enjoy the experience of seeing us being able to drink a lot more than them. I think we can drink them under the table, when we’re on tour we go out drinking every third night so we have had plenty of practice. We tend to start on beer and then go on to spirits. Then of course we will take the 1D boys to a strip club. I would love to see their faces when we suggest that.

I think it’s highly unlikely they have ever been to one before.. Unlike One Direction we don’t have Simon but we don’t need him either. He is too controlling for us, we like to have control of our own music. We are too outspoken, we want to choose who we work with and we want to work with a lot of different ones. We are so focused on ourselves. We like to sit and write our songs, decide what we do but, like any of the X Factor acts, One Direction don’t really have much of a choice about what they do. Of course having Simon behind a project is an amazing thing to have but we haven’t suffered by not having him. We have got on the Ellen show and we’re going on Jay Leno so that speaks for itself. We are so proud, we are doing this for Britain. If you had asked any of us two years ago if we thought we’d be here today, we’d have laughed in their faces.’

Jay: ‘I slept with more girls in America in one month than I have for a whole year in the UK. The boys who are not single help me, they make way for me. And Americans’ boobs are lovely. There are a lot of fake ones.’ What makes the boys so popular with the US hotties? ‘Our accents. We’ll be in a club and we’ll see the girls coming over and they’ll tell us they love our accents. Then things take their course.. One Direction are smashing it. Along with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez they are on the front of all the teenage magazines in America because the young girls love them. But, on the other side of the coin, we are on the radio stations talking about our music.’

Tom: ‘It is a massive achievement to be bigger than Take That Back For Good is such an amazing song so to beat them is huge. Now we’re being compared to The Beatles, which just takes the p*** most of us aren’t even old enough to have a legal drink in America.’

    Wtf is wrong with them they are older than one direction and they should have more self respect than that like wtf hell taking the boys to a strip club Harry just turned 18 and the boys have a lot of freedom in what they do

  • AnonymousX

    awkward moment when people don’t realise their responses are grossly exaggerated by the mag -_- these guys are anything but egotistical and rude and they dont have any thing against 1D :/…. when are these boys gonna get a category OU? they need it like now!!!! <3 TW > #TWFANMILY

  • l?veislouder

    Alright, I love The Wanted, just like I love 1D. But seriously? I’m gatting pissed because of how they talk about 1D. They’re talking as if they were babies, but Jay is the same age as Louis and Nathan is younger than all the One Driection boys, minus Harry.
    ———–
    yeah, I was wondering how old they were, seeing as the article said they weren’t old enough to have a drink in the U.S., which would make them not too much older than the One Direction boys. they may seem older and sing about older stuff, but it’s not that hard to figure out that money comes from obsession, which is usually found in teenage girls. and hey, money is money. it wouldn’t matter if his six-figure car came from teenagers or adults; again, money is money.

    lol, i think the little bit of fame they have gained is going to their heads a bit.
    I really like the wanted but to keep going on about one direction in such a negative and condescending light just makes them seem big-headed and rude.
    They should learn that the right way to gain success is to earn it and let their music speak for itself and not pushing people down to get where you want to go.

    Come on, they have just one successful single and they’re already comparing themselves to The Beatles, TO THE FREAKING BEATLES? Gosh. They’re all a bunch of nerds anyway.

    And: Jay: ‘I slept with more girls in America in one month than I have for a whole year in the UK. The boys who are not single help me, they make way for me. And Americans’ boobs are lovely. There are a lot of fake ones.’

    Who do you think you are to speak like that? Do you think these exuberant girls will ever listen to you again after talking of them as objects?

    Calm your tits and come back to the earth.

  • AnonymousC

    actually Jay is older than Louis :/ he turns 22 later this year … Nathan is older than Harry, Liam AND Niall .. he turns 19 in a couple of weeks ….. add Max, Tom and Siva all turn 24 later this year …. Good job at making a point tho :/ ………. I wouldnt take offence mate, i’m just a rude person in general :D

  • Live.Love.Learn.

    Okay seriously, wtf?? I love their music & I always thought they seemed like nice guys, but this interview makes them look like egotistic douchebags.

    Putting down another band like that is unnecessary, especially one that ‘isn’t even a threat.’

    Objectifying women isn’t swag, cool, or something to boast about; it’s wrong and disgusting.

    & like it or not, they DO have teenage fans. Teens are like one of the biggest consumer groups & are essential to selling well. People like Lady Gaga and Rihanna are not targeted at teens, yet we make up a large chunk of their audience. To think they’ll only have adult fans is just plain stupid.

    I love 1D, but I have nothing against The Wanted ..even after this interview. I mean they are who they are… What’s wrong with that? They’re music is still enjoyable to my ears! The difference is I that I love 1D musically and traditionally. No H8!! :)

    hah he should wash his mouth before even mentioning The Beatles… nobody will remember this band in a couple of years.. so chill… if you want to remain in the music industry stop talking shit about others and start working in making good and memorable music… otherwise.. start saying goodbye to the “tons” of chicks you hook up with..

  • itsdeess

    Even though they have success in the US now, 1D has more fans. And most 1D fans are like 15,16 and older. It seems like fame got to their heads.

    And just because they drink a lot and have a lot of sex doesn’t mean your cool, pff..

  • Chantell

    *18 year old One Direction fan here* wow this is awkwarddddd. Nearly wetting myself from laughter.
    1. 1D’s fans are mainly between 14-25.
    2. TW have only been known in America for a couple of months, your chart position means absolutely nothing if you can’t get another hit and then another, they’ll be a one hit wonder there if they fail that.
    3.4000 fans turned up to see 1D at their signing. Only 200ish fans turned up for TW at an American radio station.
    4. 1D have been in a strip club…so that makes that comment quite awkward.
    5. TW have not been compared to The Beatles. So Max just put that comment up where the sun doesn’t shine.

  • TWfanmily

    This is not true.. They made this up the wanted boys NEVER said any of this and never will. I sure you don’t follow them On twitter but of you did they actually said they love 1D. Please don’t believe that the boys would say this and you can tell its a lie because it says most of them are to young to drink in America ONLY Nathan which is one member.. Filthy liars who make other people look bad:(

    they talk so much about one direction that it makes them look insecure actually, talk about your own band and music if you love it that much… it makes them look kinda stupid. And “glad you came” is good, but it’s like every other pop hit.

  • Anonymous

    Honestly this doesnt’t sound like The Wanted, I’ve been a fan from the start and if you look at other interviews they’ve had banter about 1D but never hated on them,or talked about girls like this. It’s so easy for interviews to make things up tbh I just don’t think they’d say all that stuff, if you look at other stuff you’d realise they aren’t anything like this article makes them sound… just saying and i’m a fan of both bands!

  • woo:)

    i dont know about this.. i love both bands really. but arent they just like two years older than the lads in one direction?? their trying to act like their massively older when their not. and one direction fans are a massive cluster of 15-24 year girls. ive hardly seen any lil girls taken intrest in them. bashing other bands success even in the slighest makes you look bad. im tired of them calling 1d young. 1d all all adults. 18-20..the wanted 18-23 yea?!

    The Wanted have clearly stated on Twitter that this interview isn’t real. Also, you can tell Nathan especially didn’t say those things as it says “We’re mostly all players, apart from Max, who is going out with Michelle”, but Siva’s in a long term relationship with his girlfriend Nareesha, and Tom’s in a stable relationship with his girlfriend Kelsey

    This interview is completely made up, and The Wanted have confirmed that. Also, some of the facts there are completely false. For example, when ‘Nathan’ says “We’re mostly all players, apart from Max, who is going out with Michelle”. He wouldn’t say that, as 2 of the other band members are in a relationship- one of them being long term. Just thought I’d clear that up to stop any negative opinions this may create about The Wanted :)

    WOW! How disgusting can you be? I have never heard someone speak about women in such a disrespectful manner. And going after 1D and their fans? He wouldn’t bother doing that if he didn’t feel threatened. One Direction have far better personalities than these douschebags, better voices and better music. 1D is just breaking America now but they are already proving that they are going to be a huge success. Of course, One Direction has a lot more class than to brag about their success or belittle another band.

    “Now we’re being compared to The Beatles, which just takes the p*** most of us aren’t even old enough to have a legal drink in America.”

    All except Nathan are old enough to have a legal drink in America. I don’t believe much of what this article says because it doesn’t seem believable that Tom would make such a false statement. How would he not know the ages of his own group members? Clearly the interviewer didn’t understand what was really being said.

    the wanted make american women sound stupid.
    they think we’re sluts. we have standards. yes there are some idiot women that’ll just have sex with you just for your accents. but i bet they can’t get a woman with an education out here. One Direction is amazing as well. and if you haven’t notice they’re doing GREAT in America. Their album is set to release on March 13th. Get ready for one direction’s image every where you go in america. YOU WILL NEVER BE AS TALENTED AS THEM. And they know that as well, that’s why they always bring them up. Why do you think Chelsea handler asked about simon cowell? oh cause she’s knows about One Direction.

    READ BEFORE COMMENTING

    It’s sad that people believe that they actually said these things. The interview is clearly exaggerated and most of it is just false and twisted. It says that Tom said “Now we’re being compared to The Beatles, which just takes the p*** most of us aren’t even old enough to have a legal drink in America.” They are all of legal age to drink in America except Nathan. Why would Tom make such a statement when he knows the drinking age in America and he knows all of his group members’ ages? It also states that only Max has a girlfriend. Once again, false. Siva and Tom also have girlfriends which just proves how reputable this article is. People need to stop believing everything they read and realize when words have been twisted or things have been taken out of context. The flow of the supposed quotes do not seem natural. It is very much so written to fit the journalist’s vison for the article.

    It seems like people are trying to pit the two bands against each other and create a rivalry that doesn’t exist. And people will stop at nothing to do so, even if it means completely twisting the words of some until there is very little truth in what has been reported. Stop trying to compare the two bands and just enjoy each for what they are.

    This interview is bullshit, if you read the boys tweets you will understand how upset and angry they are.

    And FYI 1D fans the wanted are so much more caring than one direction. And even if there was a hint of truth about the fan bit its because 95% of you are horrible. Do you see TW fans throwing stones at 1D fans? Because that’s what some of your fans did to ours! Do you see TW fans camping out at one directions gigs and shouting ‘we’ve done better in america than you’ NO that’s what 1Dfans did to TW but shouted ‘we won the brit’ and then have the cheek to meet them! Do you see one direction getting into twitter jail because they tweeted so many fans? NO so suck on that directioners

I actually like “The Wanted” but if they say things like this, they better be careful, it doesnt take long for the hatred to start! And not once have i heard anywhere someone saying they are like the Beatles.. maybe in his own mind when he was drunk, he heard that comparison, but come on, calm your tits their buddy! Big egos will get you nowhere fast! And the quicker you get fame, the easier it is to be taken away from you!

  • MyPOV

    I agree! When, where and by whom have they been compared to The Beatles, the biggest selling, most revolutionary, and most successful band of all time? I like The Wanted, but they are not at The Beatles level, no way. That’s not to say they’ve not had huge amounts of success, because they have; congratulations to them for that, its fantastic! But I don’t think they are anywhere near the top yet. As for the One Direction-related comments- not even going to go there. (Love them both equally.)
    So, The Wanted; your work’s only just begun.

    I mean, they are right, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez etc. do attract the teenage fnas more, but if they keep this up when they open up their mouths, they are going to have no fans at all!! They will be begging to have the teenage fans then!!

    He seems egoistical and sort of obsessed with surpassing one direction. :S

  • ThatboyisaMONSTER

    I love The Wanted but I do agree that this interview makes them seem over confident and big heads, there actually not, if you watch all of the interviews they joke about being all that, but don’t take themselves too seriously. And also if you watch this interview; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T9djaXiP9Y you will see that they actually like one direction, obviously as the wanted are older they do not want to have a younger fan base which to me sounds completely fine as you don’t really want girls aged 10 to be listening to songs such as Glad you came.

  • lacey

    I actually like The Wanted, their music is great!! Of course, there is going to be a little competition between boy bands, thats the way it should be!! Instead of people comparing One Direction to Justin Bieber! I could never understand why they would try to compare a boy band with a single musical artist. I found that very strange and stupid!! Sorry, went off topic a little bit.. lol, I might like The Wanted’s music, but they seem to have a bit of an ego problem going on right now! They need to be told by their manger to calm down, cause nobody likes people with big egos like that, and they will definitely not be taken seriously for their music if they keep this up!!

    Whoever wrote this load of b******* needs a slap in the f***ing face! TW are nothing like that and if they ever say that stuff they were laughing about it. Oh and there’s 2 flaws…. Siva and Tom both have girlfriends, not just Max due to him having a famous fiancee and also all of TW are legal to drink in America except for Nathan! Get your facts right before you create a load of b******* thankyou :) xx

    Alright, I love The Wanted, just like I love 1D. But seriously? I’m gatting pissed because of how they talk about 1D. They’re talking as if they were babies, but Jay is the same age as Louis and Nathan is younger than all the One Driection boys, minus Harry.

    And being compared to the Beatles? Seriously? Haven’t heard that one yet. You guys are awesome, yes, but not that awesome yet.

    Also, I find it pretty rude how they talk about girls as if they were objects. Jay has slept with more girls in the US in a month then in the UK for one year? Well, it’s nice knowing you go to bed with anyone.

    I’m really hoping this interview’s fake or really exagerated. I don’t want to think badly of you. . . cause if it’s true. . .

Don’t believe anything you have just read.. the boys would never not want a fan, no matter how young or old they are! A fan is a fan, and im proud to be part of the TWFanmily so SCREW YOU ALL..

    GUYS THIS ARTICLE IS FAKE! THE WANTED WOULD NEVER SAY THIS!

  • Hannah Jayne

    BULLSHIT! TW would never say anything like that! If you watch interviews the boys have said they’re scared that one direction have success like they do, another time the boys have said they would LOVE to have Simon Cowell on the same page as them. Any fan of TW would tell you that they dont talk like this! (if you think i’m lying WATCH a few interviews and then read this and say it NOT bull!)

    Things this ‘interviewer’ has wrong
    1 – Max is NOT the only one with a girlfriend , Siva and Tom also has girlfriends (BEFORE they went to the USA!
    2 – Yes TW do say that USA fans are beautiful, they say ALL their fans are beautiful
    3 – TW have NEVER said anything about 1D fans!
    4 – Jay just wouldn’t say anything like that. Not that he wouldn’t say it in a different context but they ARE NOT his words (and he wouldn’t dare say anythng like that!)
    5 – Tom says ‘most of us aren’t even old enough to have a legal drink in America.’HOLD YOUR HORSES, There’s FIVE of them and ONE of them isn’t old enough! WTF?!

    Guys not to be mean but you should all calm down because this interview is bullshit and The Wanted would NEVER say these things about One Direction.

    Oh please, I’m literally writhing with anger right now. No. I don’t know any of these boys personally, but there IS NO WAY that said any of that, and even if they did it was taken completely out of context.

    Just so you all know the wanted never said any of this they confirmed it on their twitters and said they were very friendly with the one direction boys, I’m a huge fan of TW and I agree this makes them look horrible but it is completely not true what they say so don’t believe it the wanted are lovely people :-)

    LOL THIS IS SUCH A MORONIC ARTICLE. if you say youre a ‘TW FAN’ and yet believed this article..that is ridiculous.

I give those boys much more credit than this.

    I don’t see why you have to change their words to make them sound bad. That’s how rumours are started. You just made more people hate them and they didn’t even say some of these things. You should be ashamed.

  • Lauren

    Just going to clear this up. The interview was actually posted on youtube and The Wanted said nothing of the sort. This is just a page full of twisted words. To the One Direction fans who are probably mad right now, in the actual interview The Wanted complimented them, saying they would like to work with them, and that One Direction are cool and are doing well. Whoever wrote this interview out seriously made a mistake, because writing a false interview gives people a false image of the band, and makes them appear to be something their not. And on top of that, there’s already constant feuds between TW and 1D fans, so why try and cause more drama?! 1D fans who don’t like The Wanted are obviously going to judge The Wanted and make negative comments, but only fans of The Wanted will know what the boys wouldn’t actually say any of that. There’s evidence of the interview on youtube, so look it up if you want to watch it rather than read this page of lies and bullshit.

    This blog post is mainly all lies. If anyone saw The Wanted tweeting earlier, which I suppose if you haven’t, you should log onto their page “@thewantedmusic” because they are really upset about things like these. Blog posts that twist their words and make them seem egotistical and so not them. Go on. Go onto their twitter page now, and see what they’ve said. They’ve worked their butts off to get onto sites like this one, to get all the fame they deserve, and sites like this twist their words and make up all these lies about them. It really angers me, but hey, that’s gossip guys. Don’t believe everything you read.

    For gods sake if you knew what the lads are really like then you wouldnt be saying all this crap. Both bands have said time and time again they get on and they are only having a bit of banter. The press just twist their words and they appreciate ALL their fans. The Wanted have said on twitter that they never said that stuff, the interviews just twist their words and thats what the press are there for. The press want a controversial subject which will get people talking. Come on people dont believe everything you read! Both bands are great and even though im #twfanmily at heart I still think 1d are good. Ranting over!

  • jhelisaaaa

    Ohhh shit! This has made them look like complete dickheads! I love the wanted and one direction, but some of the stuff they were saying is out of order. “We don’t want their fans, they’re too young” well that’s awkward because I’m a fan of you as well. Some of what they have said may have been added in to make them look like dicks, but what they were saying on twitter and 1D only having fans because of their looks is stupid as fuck. I don’t get why everything has to be a competition in music nowadays.

  • Anonymous

    I’d just like to point out that some of the things they say on Twitter are replies to hate to them, from One Direction fans

  • Hope

    This obviously isn’t the truth because The Wanted would never dream of saying this because there too nice of lads. The only competitiveness is between the One Direction fans and The Wanted Fans because The Wanted Fans are obviously going to say that TW and better than 1D and the One Direction Fans are obviously going to say that there better than TW but there’s no competitiveness between the bands, the only time I think that The Wanted and One Direction would get competitive is if there songs went head to head in the charts.
    So there’s no point in making the matter worse by saying stuff like ‘Yeah right drink them under the table’ just accept its not true because anyone would know that The Wanted would NEVER say this.

    Woah guys, just stop a minute! Do you really believe everything that oceanup are saying? This article is a load of crap, even if they thought all this shit was true, they wouldn’t say it would they? Who would a band want to jepadise what they have by slagging off another band? They wouldn’t. If you read some of their tweets you’d realise this article is a load of crap.Max is engaged, Siva has had a girlfriend for over three years and Tom is in a stable relationship and had been for months. Nathan and Jay wouldn’t objectify girls like that, they call all their fans “beautiful” and “gorgeous”. They obviously aren’t as big as the beatles, the majority of artists aren’t and they know that! So just stop getting your knickers in a twist and calm the fuck down ok? Just answer me this question; when are people going to start liking to artists for their music and not who is doing better or who looks the best? It is okay to support more then one artist ok. #hatingwontdoit

    Reading comments from 1D fans made me laugh, they are getting so worked up over a load of bullshit! To the ones saying “1D have more fans” and shit let me just say one thing. The wanted made their way into the music industry by working hard, it took them months to become even remotley recognised. 1D went on a popular tv show that is broadcasted practically everywhere and became a sucess over night. That’s all I have to say.

    This is the biggest load of bullshit! Our boys wouldn’t say ANY of that. They adore One Direction as don’t see it as ‘beating’ anyone in the US charts. the fact that this stupid shit blog decided they were going to publish the biggest load of shite is pathetic, and it was all for hit? THE WANTED ARE TE MOST AMAZING 5 BOYS EVER AND WOULD BEVER SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT OTHER BANDS. IT’S JUST NOT WHO THEY ARE.

But ya see, the best part about this all is NO THE WANTED FAN WILL BELIEVE SUCH FALSE ACCUSATIONS, RUDE. Because we love our boys, and will stand by them for as long as humanly possible. The wanted made their way up there and earned it. Yes, one direction and the wanted are two different bands. SO WHY ARE YOU ASSOCIATING THEM TOGETHER. These bands ARE different. But you obviously can’t see that according to this article. Have some respect instead of causing rumors and making them seem bad. These five boys saved my life. Their music saved me. Now I don’t know about you, but I know the wanted cares about their fans and wishes the best for them. Honestly, all im saying is give them some respect and don’t point your already covered with gossip fingers.

    What rages me the most about this article is that people are dumb enough to believe that any of it is true! Any of you who are true TW fans would know that the lads are nothing like this – this article is complete bull and OceanUp should be ashamed to have published such nonsense.

    1D fans need to get back in their cage and realise that gossip mags love nothing more than creating fan wars. TW love and respect all of their fans and other artists and i’m fed up of them constantly being portrayed in a bad light.

    Okay, every one seems to be reading this article and thinking every single word of it is the truth. Have yous never heard of ‘Don’t believe everything you read’?

    If you have twitter, just take a look at each of the members last few tweets, and even the official group account. You will have see they have clearly said things such as ‘we are proud of what ALL of the brits are doing worldwide atm and I’m not gonna let a quote that has been taken in the wrong way put a divide between any fanbases. We do this for MUSIC and the fans.’ ‘just 2 bad that we work hard 2 get representation on certain blogs & when they finally speak about us they do it with something that isnt us’ and so on. You can see they are clearly bothered by this.

    For everyone sitting here judging them based on this interview alone, how about taking a look at other interviews and stop believing everything you read.

    And yes, I’m a 1D fan. But I also have alot of respect for The Wanted.

    Ok,This interview is complete and utter bullshit. The boys would never say ANYTHING against 1D,they love them infact..I really don’t get why every single bloody interview or newspaper ends up saying The Wanted hate One Direction,cos they don’t. And when it says,”We’re mostly all players, apart from Max, who is going out with Michelle”. Ermm excuse me,Siva has been going out with Nareesha for 4 years,so hes not a player,also Tom has been going out with Kelsey.And when Tom says,’most of us aren’t even old enough to have a legal drink in America.’He would never say that,he knows its not true as all of them can drink except Nathan. The boys are so lovely and genuine they would NEVER say anything in this interview. This is total and utter bullshit,annoys me so much when newspapers/interview guys make things up,its not gunna get you anywhere.OK rant over.

Do you really think Nathan would say anything like that? NO, Neither do I… i dont even know why you are all taking this heart, it is all bullshit, check @thewantedmusic on twitter and it explains everything, all their words have been twisted, to the person who wrote this interview, i hope you are proud of yourself for causing this much upset….

    If you know anything about journalism you can tell this article was taken out of context. First of all the original article on People.co.uk is linked up top- go look at it. Second of all there is no way a journalist could’ve gotten such consecutive long quotes, let alone gotten them correct. Regardless of the fan war if you know anything about The Wanted you can tell they were kidding and being playful like they normally do in interviews- use media literacy people, seriously. If you aren’t doing that then you obviously don’t need to be making judgments about this article or any information you see about public figures in the media.

  • maddieeexo

    This interview is made up and/or twisted completely, and I think it should be removed. The Wanted have stated that it wasn’t them in this interview, and if you read it, and then read ANY other interview by them, you will see that is not how they speak at all. Plus, you can see the lies in it. Max,Tom and Siva are 23, and Jay is 21. They can all drink in America legally, only Nathan, who’s 18 can’t. Also, this article says that only Max has a girlfriend. First of all, Max is engaged. Tom has a steady releationship and Siva’s had a girlfriend for over 3 years. I know Jay and Nathan would not take advantage of girls like that, especially fans, as thry have said in interviews they wouldn’t date a fan.
    So, to end this annoyed quote, i think you should consider REMOVING THIS SHIT from your website.

    if anyone reading this actually believes a word of it then you’re just plain stupid. it’s so exagurated and clearly fake, and it’s not even written well, a five year old could write a better article than this.

    If anyone actually beleives this then they are so dumb. The Wanted are not like this and what they have said in the interview has been twisted to make them look like bad people. I have spoken to The Wanted and they are lovely

    Dear all the people who have read this and judged 5 of the most incredible people on the planet, don’t believe everything you read on the internet.

    If you really know The Wanted boys you would know that Nathan doesn’t even talk like that and Tom has never said anything about them being ‘compared to The Beatles’, oh and hang on, laughing my head off when ‘apparently’ Nathan included Siva as a player – BULL SHIT! – so chill the fuck out okay and stop hating on The Wanted for no reason at all, it’s ridiculous. I recommend you to get your facts straight before you publish something like this. #hatingwontdoit

    This interview is strongly exaggerated. The Wanted actually like 1D, they’ve said in interviews and all that shizz.As I TWFanmily member and a Directioner, I agree with what is being said about the whole fan age thing, on average, most of the 1D fans I know/have seen on twitter are younger then those of TW fans.

  • Anon

    This interview is absolute bullshit. As if they’d say all of that. “We’re mostly all players, apart from Max, who is going out with Michelle”…Whoever made this up obviously forgot about Siva’s long term girlfriend Nareesha, and Tom’s girlfriend Kelsey.

    Not being funny guys, but considering how lovely TW are when you meet them, this has been grossly exaggerated. It’s obvious that whoever got these comments have twisted them, as TW have all taken to Twitter to set the story straight. I like 1D and TW, but after seeing some Directioners reactions to this, I am not surprised that a lot of people can’t stand them, as if the band are like the fans, many people will not want to know. At the end of the day, this has been extremely exaggerated and is unfair on Nathan, Jay, Tom, Max and Siva as it tries to show them in a bad light. They have gone from nothing to everything, whereas a band like 1D that are famous through The X Factor have been handed that fame on a plate. Ultimately, if you believe this, you will obviously believe anything.

    lol this is complete bullshit, I’m a massive tw fan and I know for a fact that none of them would say that. the boys are always lovely about other artists and even wished jls and 1D luck before the brits awards were announced. didn’t see your precious boys doing that. and also to the comment below, the wanted were in the music industry before one direction so yeah. I don’t see why being compared to jonas brothers is a bad thing anyway, they’re fab lol, and don’t act like your boys are perfect because there’s a video of zayn asking a 1D/TW fan why they even liked tw, I’m a massive fan of one direction, but their fans need to stop acting like they’re gods gift and nothing will ever compare to them. the wanted are really genuine and lovely guys and actually bother with their fans unlike 1D. also, they worked for their fame and didn’t have it handed to them through a television programme. true, 1D have done so well since the x factor but the wanted have worked their way from just a bunch of normal guys to the top of the US charts. so I don’t see why the fanbases can’t just leave eachother alone and enjoy the music the two produce x

    can’t anyone here fucking understand that this is a load of bullshit? oceanup just wants to start more fights between the two fandoms and they’re idiots for doing it. Grow the fuck up and realize your site sucks apeshit. Fucking idiots, go die in a pond.

    this is fucking bullshit, this isn’t real and the fact that you’re believing it, well…

    this is obviously not real… if u were a tw fan from the beginning u should know theyre not like that, this is just trying to get the 1D vs tw drama even more rivaled

  • Rachel

    OceanUp is just trying to start more problems then there already is, its obvious that this interview is not real… i’ve been a fan of the wanted since forever and know the boys arent so big-headed… 1D fans need to chill and understand the media isnt always right… dont spread the rumours if u dont have facts from the source, and magazines and blogs arent good sources at all

  • robynbethdent.

    The boys didn’t say half of this.. its been made up most of it and i swear to you they aren’t like this atall and they’re even upset themselves about how oceanup.com has portrayed them, its disgusting. I wish you knew the boys for who they are because this isn’t them and i’m sad that alot of people probably don’t like them now, all because of this. They didn’t say this, i swear.

  • robynbethdent

    The papers are just trying to get the wanted and one direction and both fanbases arguing, please don’t believe this, the boys are lovely and especially the stuff they put that Nathan apparently said, he is NOT like that atall and i’m disgusted tbh with you.

  • Me

    what a load of bullshit. The Wanted actually like One Direction and they wouldn’t say all this shit. You can tell this stupid website made this up because for one, the boys don’t talk like this and another thing; the websites way to check if you’re human is to make you answer a maths question whilst every other RELIABLE website make you do letters. This ‘interview’ is nothing but lies.

  • Anonymous

    May I just say, I am a TW fan, but this is a load of rubbish. TW wouldn’t say any of this, they’re close to the lads and wouldn’t say any of this! They’ve said on Twitter it’s a load of bull, so why believe it any way? Don’t think this is true, any one, because if the boys said this, I don’t think they’d be giving them advice on how to crack the US if they didn’t like each other, so everyone don’t believe this, it’s all fake and utter rubbish.

  • AdoreSykes

    the fact that the majority of you are believing this before checking what the actual band has said is sad. i’m a fan of both, and the fact that people are giving the wanted the lower card is upsetting. the bands have no problem with each other, in fact, they’ve said they’re happy for them and their success in america, as they are for any other fellow british act. this interview obviously got twisted and things got exaggerated. if you believe ANY of what was said in this, then i strongly suggest you stop reading oceanUP’s articles.

    OHH COME OFF IT GUYS!!!! AS IF THE WANTED WOULD SAY STUFF LIKE THIS…. it’s a pile of Bollocks…. Someones doing this as a joke…..

    Congrats band boys. You’ve just made American girls look extremely bad. Not all of us have those ghastly low standards. These self-called “players” find their hookups in clubs and around groupies. Ask a real American girl and you won’t find fake tits or a fake personality on them. Sucks that other countries base their opinions on tiny little things, especially the sluts that they go for.

  • AcidPinkLemonade

    I wouldn’t call myself a fan of 1D or The Wanted, but both of them come off as ego-maniacs sometimes, especially the Wanted in this interview.

  • Anonymous

    This is complete BULLSHIT. The boys are no way like that! Directioners go on and hate but the TWFanmily know better about the boys! And this is defintely something they WOULDN’T Say!!! This is just an article written out of the mind not the truth!

    The Wanted:) Amazing:)

    Haters- It’s past your bedtime.

  • katielouise_TW

    you know how upset this made the boys? COMPLETE LIES.

  • paige

    I just want to say.. this interview is utter rubbish, infact, they are friends with one direction and if you actually knew the boys, they wouldn’t dare say anything like this, its not them.
    They are honestly so down to earth and kind, this is all a load of bull.
    It angers me how they have been portrayed in this interview and clearly through their twitter, they are upset and distressed at all these lies, I think the readers of this website might want to take a second look at this website as it is all complete lies.

  • MileyEqualsAwesome

    We don’t want their fans, they’re too young

    I’m 21…
    Anyways, I like them but since when were people considering them the next Beatles? And it’s great that they’re doing successfully over here but do they really need to put down another British band to make themselves look better?
    Also the whole bit about hooking uo with their fans is awful. They should have some respect for them not just use them all to sleep with. Then with the whole Spring Break thing with getting the fittest girls, thats disgusting.
