One Direction have opened up about their rivalry with fellow Brit boy band The Wanted!
Louis Tomlinson spoke candidly to Now about the way The Wanted have bad-mouthed them, saying he isn’t happy about it:
“I want to speak openly about this because it’s quite frustrating. I remember when I’d just done my first audition on The X Factor and I heard ‘All Time Low’ for the first time. I thought it was a great song by a great band. We met them on the show and they were nice…
“It changed all of a sudden. There was one press story where they were bad-mouthing us. I thought maybe that had been twisted.
“But then there ended up being about ten stories and they’ve been caught on camera doing little things. I just think, ‘If you want to create that rivalry, then let’s do it.’ We’re not bothered about the friction or the rivalry.
“But I’m not going to shy away from it because that isn’t the person I am. I don’t think it’s fair to me or any of the lads. I was going to say something rude then. Or something sexual. But that’s something The Wanted would say.”
Oo-er! Well, looks like One Direction aren’t exactly afraid of a little competition… BS
UPDATE: Now The Wanted say they’re going to meet up with 1D – more details here….
