The Wanted say that One Direction are too Manufactured
The Wanted think One Direction will “come into themselves” in a few years time, as at the moment they are too manufactured.
There has been a growing fued developing between the two largest british boy bands. Zayn Malik and Max George have been particularly active on Twitter with several heated arguments taking place.
The Wanted – comprising Nathan Sykes, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Max George and Tom Parker – believe that the groups shouldn’t be compared though as they are so different. While Parker revealed The Wanted are “very real”, he thinks former X Factor contestants One Direction are more swayed by their music label.
He told OK! magazine: “When you come out of a TV programme you get taught to be a certain way. I’m pretty sure over the years they’ll come into themselves. They’re still young and, do you know what, they’re nice lads.”
The Wanted understand why comparisons were drawn between the two groups when they both launched an assault on the US charts last year, with Parker revealing: “Everyone kicked off over here and it was very One Direction versus The Wanted.
He added: “It went worldwide. We’re both British bands doing it for the Brits and taking it to America and I don’t get why people are trying to create this feud between us.”
Whilst the language in the comments are leading towards people assuming there is a fued, we can’t help but think this is just an elaborate publicity stunt driven by the two bands.
