Siva Kaneswaran GOING SOLO!

siva_paperThe Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran blames the stress of The Wanted’s E! reality TV show for causing the band to fall apart. He told Paper Mag: ‘It kind of showed the true colors of some of the members. Old wounds were reopened. I just hated it.

It’s like a relationship. We were in each other’s pockets for like four years. So when [the breakup was announced] I had to sit with it for like a day. Then I was like, ‘You know what? This is going to be really exciting.’

I just want to go crazy. I have to play a role in the band. I have to be ‘that guy’ and sing and do the usual dance, the air grabs. Now I can do what I want.. I’ll take something like Lionel Richie or Earth Wind & Fire and mix that with something new, like Coldplay. I want to work with everyone. It doesn’t matter who it is, I’ll feature on everyone’s track.’

    Sounds kinda desperate, we all know this is gonna be Joe Jonas Fastlife 2.0

    I watched one episode of their reality show and it looked like one big mess. I’m kind of interested to see how far he’ll go when it comes to making music.

    He’s proven himself to be a boring stick in the mud that is rude to his fans. He won’t make it as a solo artist.

    I see him becoming a high end supermodel but nothing more

    The only one who should go solo is Nathan. He should have been a solo artist from the get go. His voice is insane. He can annihilate any boybander around these days. He’s like the male Ariana. Dynamite in a small package. He has amazing vocal ability but I also adore his tone. It’s not too thin or too thick. Such a beautiful blend. I really hope they recognize his talent, get him some good RnB or actual singing tracks & ditch the boybander pop, & I’m gonna cross my fingers & pray that the public actually listen to a real singer & stop worrying themselves over how cocky a boy is & watching him parade around & flirt with them.

    He should stick to modeling he is actually pretty good and has the face/body for it. Nathan is the one who would make it solo he had a amazing voice and basically is the only likeable one in the group besides jay.

    Lmfao love the wanted but everybody knows he had really short parts in songs cus he sucks. And he’s the one people find least attractive, flop.

    He either needs to just model or TW needs to get over their shit and get back together..

    Interesting article… I actually think The Wanted were a bit too open on that reality show. Only saw one episode when I was bored one day. Seriously, reality shows can ruin your life. It’s never a good idea. Well, as for who would go solo, you all put your money on Nathan and he might be able to do it, but my money is on Max. If he finds his sound, I think he’d be the breakout. He has a lot of charisma.
