the 5sos rolling stone interview is awful. degrading women/using them as objects is not ok & they made it seem like they were proud of it— anna (@buteracandles) December 26, 2015
After some half-assed damage control from one of the band members about the contents of the interview, and the full release of the interview of the Rolling Stone website, fans have taken to twitter to voice their disappointment about how the band members talk about their sex lives, their fans, and the future.
My rant on the 5sos Rolling Stone interview.— :) (@directioner9__) December 26, 2015

some choice excerpts:
- "Seventy-five percent of our lives is proving we're a real band," says Irwin. "We're getting good at it now. We don't want to just be, like, for girls."
- "When you put four young dudes on a tour bus, playing theaters, then arenas, you're going to have sex with a lot of girls, I guess," says Hemmings. "We had a good time." Multiple girls in one night? "I feel like I shouldn't say," he says with a smirk. "You could say the possibility of that is high." Multiple girls at the same time? "The possibility is high," he says again. He cracks a devilish grin. "The possibilities are endless."
- But there's one question that bothers them the most: "Are you a boy band?" They were called one just last night, at an industry party, when Hemmings was introduced to a new group. "They said, 'We're in a boy band, too,'" he says. "I was like, 'I'm walking away now.'"
- Plus, the video [Calum Hood's snapchat nude leak] earned the band a lot of publicity. "Now, I'm just working on the sex tape," Hood says. "I'll call Pamela up, like, 'Hey, it's been a while. We really need to hype this band up!'"
