Looks like The Wanted‘s dissing of Christina Aguilera is far from over. Following boy band member Tom Parker branding The Voice coach “a total bitch” — and then apologizing (sort of) — the lads had a chat with UK paper Metro, and fired up the verbal assault on the “Beautiful” songstress once again. Catch the latest zingers from their tirade below.
This time it was mop-topped Wanted member Jay McGuiness who led the Aguilera-ranting. “We unanimously think that Christina lacks any kind of courtesy or manners or respect for people performing for her on the day,” he told Metro. “And we’re not the only ones that say it. She’s had run-ins with so many people.”
The band’s beef with Xtina supposedly began when they appeared recently on The Voice. “She’s a bitch,” Parker said during an interview with New York radio station 92.3 NOW FM. “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.”
After those initial comments, there was a brief moment where it appeared as if the British quintet were also going after Britney Spears in a separate interview. But that’s not the case, they claim to Metro.
“We did an interview about when we were supporting Britney and Siva mentioned when the security made him turn away,” McGuiness said. “Then everyone said ‘The Wanted are slagging off everyone.’ We’re not! On a first impression basis as a person I would say I dislike Christina Aguilera. When we met Britney she was so friendly. Very innocent. The dude that told Siva to turn around was some pushy security.”
Man, these guys just won’t let it go. And while we admit their jabs were entertaining at first, it’s starting to get a little juvenile at this point.
Do you think The Wanted are justified in their public bashing of Christina, or should they just zip their lips from now on about the subject? Let us know below, or by hitting us up on Twitter and Facebook!
