The Wanted are such bad boys, ya’ll! Bad boys with great hair who sing in dulcet harmonies and just need one special lady to reveal the gentle lamb within. That’s the P.R. angle The Wanted is currently working with, right? Why else would the British band have “gone rogue” and revealed a super-unflattering detail about opening for Britney Spears? “We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway,” bandmember Tom Parker (always the troublemaker!) told Fresh 102.7. Added Siva Kaneswaran, “I was in the hallway with me tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get WiFi, and we were facing the middle of the hallway. Her bouncers came down with her and told us to face the wall . . .” Interjected Tom, “As Miss Spears is walking through. We’re like, come on!” Wow, revealing that a famous person did something weird? Bad Boys 4 Lyfe!
The boys spilled their Britney dirt mere days after the band ripped on Christina Aguilera, which makes us think this whole thing has to be an ingenious publicity campaign designed to appeal to the 13-year-old girl in all of us. That’s the only explanation we can see for all the spots The Wanted has been blowing this past week! Unfortunately for them, Xtina and Brit Brit are not middle schoolers anymore. And their days of putting up with bad boys are long, long, long over.
