Usually, when a feud brews among artists, we assume it’s either media-fabricated or exaggerated. But there’s nothing to be misconstrued about The Wanted‘s surprisingly honest — and extremely insulting — opinion of Christina Aguilera. While being interviewed for New York radio station 92.3 NOW FM, the boys were asked about their feelings for Aguilera, as the group had recently performed their single “Chasing The Sun” on The Voice. Max George called her “a bit scary”, but it was Tom Parker who wasn’t afraid to say what the whole group was evidently thinking: “She’s a total bitch.”
“She’s a bitch,” he said. “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us she was a bitch. She just sat there and wouldn’t speak to us, wouldn’t even look at us.” He tops it off by looking into the camera as if staring directly at Xtina, and says, “I’m sick of you!!”
“She was quite rude,” Siva Kaneswaran added.
Nathan admitted that she may not have been in a good mood that day, since he witnessed Justin Bieber also getting treated less-than-friendly by the pop singer.
When asked about the differences between their experiences with Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez, who they met while performing on American Idol, Max — who smooched up to J.Lo on the show — says, ”Yeah, well J.Lo’s hot, Christina’s nothing special.”
Oof. Them’s fighting words. Think Xtina will respond to her alleged rudeness with silence, a statement, or one vague but vengeful tweet?
Do you think The Wanted was being refreshingly honest, or were they the ones being rude? Sound off below.
