The Wanted: 'We Brought One Direction Rivalry On Ourselves'

So the boyband battle between One Direction and The Wanted stepped up a notch this week when 1D's Louis Tomlinson told the 'I Found You' singers: "If you want to create that rivalry, then lets do it."

But The Wanted lads have backed away from a full scale war by playing down their rivalry, admitting: "We brought it on ourselves".

Responding to Louis' interview in Now magazine, the band's Tom Parker told us yesterday: "I think we initiated it and we brought it on ourselves. But the stuff that we said wasn't like 'you're rubbish'. We felt that we were two different audiences."

While Max George reckoned the One Directioner was just 'flirting' with them because he 'likes' them, he tried to explain that he didn't mean to annoy the band with his recent comments they were like the Jonas Brothers.

"I think I said, which annoyed them, they're like the new Jonas Brothers. I love the Jonas Brothers, I think they're mint!," he said. "But I think they got offended by that. I don't know why. I wasn't trying to have a go. We're not even that bothered to be honest."

Louis Tomlinson also said in his interview that he 'wasn't going to shy away from' the rivalry after accusing The Wanted of 'bad mouthing' One Direction in several interviews and TV appearances.

However, Jay McGuiness added that he didn't think there was any real tension between the two groups, who have both stormed America this year.

"We haven't met them enough for there to be actual drama. There's not much content in what anyone has said. I think a lot of it is press generated," he said.

As much as I think this should die already, that was a nice answer.
imnotasquirrel 16th-Nov-2012 03:57 pm (UTC)

The groups should unite and turn their pissiness towards the folks that convinced them to record Little Things and I Found You.
forevergold217 16th-Nov-2012 04:11 pm (UTC)
word. I loathe both songs with a fiery passion.
colorzplosion 16th-Nov-2012 04:22 pm (UTC)
the only good thing about little things is the perf music video and live performances. it kills me that we have to suffer through those flop lyrics to hear 1D's best live vocals to date.
dizzy879 16th-Nov-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
Lol, wow, such a feud.
devourlove 16th-Nov-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
This is getting ridiculous. I like how they make it sound like "we complimented them! idk how they got annoyed!". So high school rn.

people were going to compare both of them sooner or later, tbh.
and everybody knows what kind of jokes TW makes. I do believe Louis took it too personal and started backfiring at that.
forevergold217 16th-Nov-2012 04:10 pm (UTC)
How is it that I've gone from absolutely despising Jay 6 months ago to actually finding him cute and kinda adorable?
blacklistedgirl 16th-Nov-2012 04:11 pm (UTC)
because that's what he is.

fluorescentx 16th-Nov-2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
then why don't they stop talking about it rme. the only time there is ever a post on them I swear its about the "rivalry"
surfin_the_sun 16th-Nov-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure both groups keep being asked about it, so they keep talking about it. The whole thing needs to die at this point though, it's irrelevant.
