The Wanted Apologized To One Direction?

onedpix-18


More photos HERE@ The Wanted were reportedly forced to apologise to One Direction, after Max George said he believed the boys were just ‘faces’ and ‘children’s magazine based.’ George was quoted as saying to Metro: ‘I’m not sure how well they’re actually doing yet. They’re more faces, if you know what I mean.

I don’t think people really look at us over there as the same kind of band because I think people look at them more like a Jonas Brothers sort of band that are very TV and children’s magazine based. They make magazines instead of actually hearing them on the radio. I think our audience over there is sort of 18 to 25 or 30. We have a lot of radio play but I think we’re more of a music band.’

Despite taking to Twitter to clarify his comments, a source has told Heat ‘The Wanted totally freaked out when their management told them that slagging off One Direction could turn their fans against them. That’s why they tweeted saying that it had ‘all been blown out of proportion’. It was their way of apologising.’

1D are apparently ‘furious’ with George and the rest of the gang, with an insider telling Heat: ‘They’re angry about The Wanted slagging them off. They think it’s a low blow and they were shocked that Max would say that.’ A music insider added: ‘It’s not a good idea to start an argument with One Direction. They are working the same circuit at the moment. It’s going to be really awkward when they bump into each other.’

One Direction fans showed up at the Stonebriar Center Mall in Frisco, Texas and in the frenzy some fans were injured when making a push to the Barns & Noble to acquire a wristband to meet the band at a later appearance.

    The Wanted r not good. Glad U Came is stupid. 1D have a lot of potential imo

    LMFAO!! except 1D won a stupid as talent competition show on TV. That already makes them cringe worthy. Anyway none of these guys will be huge in America for very long. Americans just aren’t interested in british boy bands, it never works out.

    Umm…i dont believe the wanted are not douche bags…They love one direction! And the interview hasnt been in youtube or in the news so theres no proof….So oceanup stop making up fake stories ;)

    night. :)

    I was referring to Nick on Broadway. I think he is doing well in HSB, & I also liked his role on Smash. I think he should go in that direction cuz a JB album is not going to sell like it did 3 yrs ago

  • Anonymous

    Either way, a boy band’s fame only last a few years tops cuz theres always someone new. JBs time has already passed. A new album will sell but not well. 1D will b more successful than the Wanted tho

    Today in Chile there were like 70 girls getting their album, cause it just got released today. They were all very tranquil :) If it would have been a Bieber or Jonas release, they would’ve been all singing, screaming and being irritating.

    COMPARING ONE DIRECTION TO THE JONAS BROTHERS IS A MAJOR COMPLIMENT.
    THE JONAS BROTHERS CHANGED THE GAME FOR POP MUSIC. JUST SAYIN

    If you ever get nominated for a Grammy, get covers on Rolling Stones, sing for Paul McCartney, and sing WITH Stevie Wonder, then you can say again that the Jonas Brothers are “are very TV and children’s magazine based.”

    Thats because Up All Night isnt their album, right now they are just a big product.
    Maybe when they start writing or at least co-writing….who knows…

  • Anonymous

    I don’t think they’ll ever write their own music. Bands like these never do, that’s why they’re successful, because experienced people write what tweens and teens want to hear.

    What they don’t know is that their favourte song about broken-hearted boys was written by a 42-year-old, lol.

    The Jonas Brothers are kinda the exception, they write awful and corny music, but at least they write it themselves.

    LOL, if you say so…

    That’s not true…but you’ve got to admit, that a lot of fans only like them because of their looks. Girls are my school are a great example of that…

  • SellyismygirlCrush

    They seem douchee, but I like thier song I didn’t even know it was them and I’ve heard it on the radio so many times lol. Not the most attractive bunch either.

  • damselchelle

    I think people look at them more like a Jonas Brothers sort of band that are very TV and children’s magazine based.

    I find it comedic that they referred to the Jonas Brothers as “just faces” when the Jonas Brothers are among the few “boy bands” that wrote their own music, and played their own instruments. I’d say the Jonas Brothers have more talent than The Wanted and One Direction put together.

    A lot of Radio Play? WTF no one here even know who is The Wanted…1D is not mega popular yet but they are gonna make it big time…i can see it. They have already little fan clubs around the world and people waiting for the album international release. I don’t know about U.S but The Wanted are pretty irrelevant worldwide and in the other hand 1D is gettin bigger and bigger…i smell some band is jelly.

  • Anonymono

    The wanteds only good song is glad you came imo and even here in the uk nobody really cares about them. They seem like they’ve gotten too big for their boots because of one song doing well, i actually met them last year and they were really nice and hilarious but still meh :/

  • Anonymous

    At least the Jonas Brothers write their own songs, play their own instrument and don’t need to have sex with their fans to sell albums.

    JB, legends? Come on! Their already on their way to irrelevancy as a band. Nick is the only 1 who can make it on his own.

    The Wanted r not good. Glad U Came is stupid. 1D have a lot of potential imo

    I love JB but I agree 1D will fade soon. I hear more The Wanted on the radio than 1D ALSO A FACT!

    If Nick was gonna make it on his own that would have already happened along ass time ago. His solo cd tanked both of them. The Jonas Brothers haven’t released a cd in 3 years. And still have millions of fans. They are working on a new cd, and when they release it will blow all these guys out of the water trust.

    The Wanted are a bunch of wannabe’s. They know that 1D are doing much better in the US, and this is just a low blow tbh. And I’m not even a Directioner saying this. And who is this dude to even talk about the Jonas Brothers? Whether you like them or not, the Jonas Brothers are legends. They’re one of the most successful boybands out there. They’re more than just “faces for kids” (again I’m not even a Jonas fan).

  • Anonymous

    When any of these Douche Bags even sell half of the cds that the Jonas Brothers have then come talk to me. BTW you have had one hit song here in the US, and you probably will never have another. And yes little teenie girls in America are the only ones who like The Wanted, and One Direction. Joe Jonas hosted a Victoria Secret party to day, with most of the girls being in their 20’s going crazy over him. The Wanted can’t even get invited to a VS party! Period let alone host one.

  • Live.Love.Learn.

    This “feud” is probably being blown way out of proportion. They’re both great. MOVING ON.

    Glad You Came went Platinum!

    & Up All Night is #1 on iTunes!

    So congrats to both bands :)

    I like both boy bands!! The Wanted are doing just great in the US too.. They sold out all their concerts, and their album just went platinum, so no need to put them down! I think this was blown way out of porportion, and instead of One Direction whining about it, they need to maybe discuss it among themselves and ask George and the rest of the gang what they meant and work things out instead of making it public that they are upset with them!!

    And honestly girls, what he said about the looks thing, wasnt that far off,, Are you telling me that if One Direction was a boy band of 5 ugly looking guys, that they would get the same attention as they are getting now? Speaking as a 1D fan myself, im not in denial here! I like them cause they are good looking, and sure they arent that bad at singing either!

  • TakeItAndRun

    Well, i guess they are just mad because they arent the biggest UK Boy Band, anyways, why did they have to mention JBs tho?

    Those bitches can’t even sell HALF of what the Jonas Brothers sell. The Jonas Brothers sold out madison square garden in 10 MINUTES. So no, they’re not just “a face for kids”.

    Lol…..The Wanted just sound jealous.
    The Jonas Brothers have sold more than they probably will ever DREAM to sell.

    Awhh little fan girls getting mad? What they said was true but they suck too :L

  • Sam

    Wow guys. If you even knew anything about TW, 1D and the JoBros thing you would know that TW and 1D are friends. Magazines took their words and turned them around to make it seem like they hate 1D. So calm yourselves. Both bands are doing amazing and both have a different age range.

    As for the JoBros, Max did a cover of Look Me In the Eyes. They have stated before that the Jonas Brothers are amazing. Let’s be honest, the JoBros marketed a younger fan base, there is nothing wrong with that. One Direction is similar but they’re trying not to go that route.

    Everybody just needs to take a chill pill. Dang.

    A fan of all three bands.

    this is problem like a few people said blown out of proportion cause this kinda crap always is we will never know the trutH hoever being a jonas brothers and 1D fan i really hope the wanted didnt say that cause they to me makes them look like jelous assholes. yes i do like glad you came so does the rest of mainstream but i listened to other the wanted songs and there nothing special i was kinda dissapointed in them. 1D they can all sing there asses off and same with the jonas brothers oh well there young of course there going to attract a young fan base but also there going to attract people who are genuinely interested in good music that doesnt sound horrible to me.

  • OneDirection<3

    Ok, well all people have different opinions so just leave it as that. I personally love all bands but for the people that don’t, if you don’t have anything nice to say keep it to yourself.

  • Kaleigh

    I love how being compared to the Jonas Brothers is always a bad thing. I mean come on back in their day they were the best boy band. Then they went on break Justin came in and now they are “grown” up and don’t want their old fans.

  • Anon

    You guys are honestly going to believe everything that you guys read? This supposed “feud” is blown way out of proportion. Both bands have stated MANY times that they like each other. So what’s with these stupid stories?

  • LIB1712

    I think that The Wanted has no clue just how famous people are here in the US… and a lot of it does have to do with their looks… The fans love 1D and the JoBros and Justin and many others because they are beautiful people with a lot of talent. That is why they have the ability to wow everyone… So just because The Wanted has like.. what.. a song that did well.. doesn’t mean they can just say they’re better than all those beautiful people :p

    It seems like OceanUp is trying to save their asses from their last fake interview. There’s no proof any of this was said and do you notice that the drama between the fanbases has only really taken off since they’ve become popular in America?

    1D didn’t win x factor. They came third. I knew they wouldn’t win but based on the fans they generated during the season, I knew something big was going to happen, and I was proven right. I’m not trying to be rude but most young fans/ teens are untrustworthy as they tend to move to the next big thing. It happened with the jobros fans going to Justin Bieber and most likely some of Justin’s fans going to 1d. But Justin fans seem strong( scary strong) based on what I see on twitter

    sing for Paul McCartney, and sing WITH Stevie Wonder or even talk with Bono?…
