Usually it's mouthy celebs and girlbands having backstage fights, but now a bit of a scuffle has kicked up between The Wanted and One Direction. Both bands are currently trying (and succeeding) to crack America, but last week, Max George told The Metro: "I’m not sure how well they’re actually doing yet, they’re more faces, if you know what I mean. I don’t think people really look at us over there as the same kind of band because I think people look at them more like a Jonas Brothers sort of band that are very TV and children’s magazine based. They make magazines instead of actually hearing them on the radio." Ouch. We assume by children's magazines he means teen magazines? ! Err, what's wrong with us, Max?!
Anyway, after Max insulted 1D, they were obviously annoyed, so The Wanted tried to smooth things over by apologising on Twitter. However, it seems that a few tweets didn't do enough to fix the sitch, and now a source has told Heat that The Wanted are having to massively backtrack so that One Direction fans don't turn against them! Eek! The source said: "The Wanted totally freaked out when their management told them that slagging off One Direction could turn their fans against them. That's why they tweeted saying that it had 'all been blown out of proportion'. It was their way of apologising." Then a music insider added: "It's not a good idea to start an argument with One Direction. They are working the same circuit at the moment. It's going to be really awkward when they bump into each other." Is it wrong that we kinda want to be there to witness this awkward meeting?! Who do you love more, The Wanted or One Direction?
