Max George ‘1D Broke Up The Wanted’

max-george-nakedMax George told The Sun that One Direction is the reason The Wanted flopped and broke up: ‘One Direction are a phenomenon that no one else can compete with. ‘They’ve taken over the market. We have our own fans, who we love, but we couldn’t stop things from happening.’

  • Grammy Winner Taylor Swift

    I can’t wait until a hot,young, new boyband destroys One Direction, and sends them into oblivion.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      And it will happen, so a lot of directioners better calm down with the gloating.

      • Anna

        Stuff like this gives them more of a reason to gloat. This is just fueling the feud even more and it wasn’t necessary. It isn’t the real reason the broke up and everyone knows it. Just creating more pissed off directioners.

    • Lost and Insecure

      Rude like ur stupid idol ;)

      *shut the fuck up*

  • Ashley

    As a directioner.. You’re welcome. It was my absolute pleasure to help.

  • cerenagee

    I feel like that is such a cop out excuse of why their band flopped. They weren’t good enough. The end.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    “One Direction are a phenomenon that no one else can compete with.”

    At the moment, he’s right. Any group trying to come out right now is going to have a hard time competing. But some band or some solo artist is going to take their fans someday. It’s just the natural cycle of the industry. Teenagers are flip flops.

  • Cici

    Eh, I don’t find him attractive at all. But he is right. 1D only has a couple more years at the most until someone else comes along. I bet if The Wanted came out a few years later, they would have the success they wanted (although I have never listened to their music)… Same thing with Austin Mahone & Bieber.

    • WatchOut

      Bieber ruined himself and I think Austin will take over.
      Cody Simson never had a chance because Bieber was on top when he came out.

      • Cici

        That’s true. No hope for Cody I guess. I heard he has a really good voice though

        • WatchOut

          He has a really good voice and more range than justin but noone cares about him.
          And he is not cute like justin was. IMO

      • RegReach

        Austin has had 4 major songs but not one of them is a top 40 yet hes two y ears in and no album
        his latest song is selling at a regular 69 cent discout right out the bat, if he doesnt get hit song soon, hes gonna be dropped, then were on to the next wanna bee

        • WatchOut

          Oh I did not know that. I do not follow his career but I see him a lot a award shows and I hear young girls talking about him a lot.

  • BangBang

    That’s an excuse someone makes who’s just going after money and fame…

  • Emmatome

    He’s right. But still. If you love what you’re doing, there’s no need to stop. There are a lot of bands out there, which aren’t especially famous, or at least not as much as One Direction. So, yeah, it doesn’t keep you from doing what you love and making music for your fans.

    • RegReach

      I thinke there label and agen said thease things, the boys didnt jsut go lets quit one day they got fired, then again the jbors kind siad the same thing lat year

  • Alysha

    LOL. They basically just gave up. Backstreet Boys and NSYNC were around at the same time. That’s just the way the music industry is.

    • RegReach

      Different market,
      in todays culture there can only be one at a time
      nsync didnt have the media control like we do today and backsteet boys didnt have pycho fans like bieber, its a whole new world

  • FuckHarry

    No hate towards the wanted but it’s kinda blaming a spoon for making you fat. I mean nsync and backstreet boys where around the same time and both where really successful no need to blame another boy band for your failure maybe you should blame your label I never really saw promotion. Or maybe if was the stupid singles they chose to release like “walks like Rihanna”that song was bad. Although I liked all time low and glad you came.

  • dlovCyr

    I’m a really huge fan of the wanted but I don’t think they took their careers seriously, they did a lot of drinking, fucking fans, making rude comments about other colleague’s, being separated from each other a lot, and the competition didn’t go well.

    • Anna

      I agree if they really took their career seriously they wouldn’t have stopped just because someone else was doing better than them. And they weren’t professional, you are certainly right on that. Majority of them had bad attitudes and were pretty rude to others around them. Their music wasn’t bad, but they weren’t the greatest people and that kind of ruined them for me.

      • dlovCyr

        Yep their pretty asshole-ish I feel like that’s kinda of a UK thing tho. drinking, calling girls they’ve hooked up with prostitutes, cursing all the time idk. I don’t really mind but still, other people do.

        • Anna

          I don’t think it is UK thing, just some people are assholes and all the things you mentioned are just most typical young guys. However, I think when your in the public eye you should tone down the sleep around and partying, but most don’t. Nathan didn’t seem that bad though!

  • lee anne

    I think he meant that 1D’s popularity forced their handlers/label, or whatever you call it, to let them go. It’s not that all of the boys from The Wanted only joined the band for the sole reason of fame and popularity.

    Scooter Braun has ran out of ideas on how he can make these guys to at least be on the same level as 1D. Too bad… I really liked them. But, yeah, this was bound to happen.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Did anyone read that ducking caption on the side?!?! I’m DYING. His arrogance is unbelievable: “who’s got the biggest in the band? It’s got to be me!” LOLOLOLOLOL ok big boy….

  • boystan


  • boystan

    i literally only knew one song from them and i hated it

  • Anna

    Am I the only one who sees this as an excuse for not giving their fans a REAL reason for why they broke up? They can’t blame all their problems on 1D, it just makes them look bad. 1D have a lot of success right now, doesn’t mean that they should just give up. I believe it is an excuse mainly because it is a stupid reason to stop making music. There is always going to be someone doing better than you, that doesn’t mean you stop fighting for that spot.
    And to those saying 1D will eventually fade out, you’re probably right. However, people thought they peaked with their second album and then their 3rd album comes out and does even better. Their fans will eventually move on, but it is certainly not going to be anytime soon.

  • roxanneXD

    the boy bands never work it! always break up or back in years but not with the same success, I’m sure it also will happen with 1D in 3 to 4 years

  • shanghai

    Don’t think they can blame One Direction as they are a different sort of band with different music. But agree One Direction like any other band are lucky to get a few good years before someone else comes along. Still those lucky enough to get those few years of fame are made for life with a home and money in the bank!!

  • truth

    The Wanted are going to be naked in magazines that’s all they’re going to do in the future.

  • Luciana

    That’s a lot of bs, he never said that!
