The Wanted Says There's No Rivalry Between Them & One Direction: "Love Those Guys!"
Despite the rumors, The Wanted has officially stated that they have no feud with One Direction. The boys cleared the speculation up to OK! at their album release party at Bowlmor Lanes Times Square in NYC.
Siva Kaneswaran told OK!, "Love those guys! Really nice guys. And press are making massive speculation. It’s gone crazy, like we’re not rivals!"
He continued by saying, "We met them in the studio the other day, last week, just by coincidence and they were all unsure about us. We went up to them and we’re like, 'Congratulations, we’re proud that your music is doing really well' and yeah, we’ll have to go out for a drink sometime," he added, "when they can legally drink."
Max George and Nathan Sykes also echoed Siva's sentiments.
"No, we don’t have any problem with them," Max said.
Nathan added, "No, not at all."
"They have an amazing debut album," Max remarked, "And hopefully we can follow in that."
We think they can! The Wanted's newest release is currently on iTunes!
