One Direction's Liam Payne Throws MAD Shade At The Wanted!

Now now, boyz!

There IS room enough in the music scene for BOTH of your 5-piece British boybands, so why all these underhanded insultsLiam Payne?!

The newly shaven haired member of One Direction seems to take issue with The Wanted, and totally dissed the band during a recent interview while trying to make it sound like he's just reacting to The Wanted's supposed One Direction obsession.

Liam sneakily slammed:

To be honest, we haven't really got a problem with anyone.

We've never really said anything about it. We've kind of ignored it, but for me, The Wanted have made their career more about us than anything else. They've only got themselves to blame.

They do their dance music and we'll do our rock'n'roll kind of thing. They've constantly compared us in the press. They rose to the bait, whereas we've said they can do what they want.

When we first spoke to them, when we were on the X Factor, they were really nice. But then you hear these stories and can't quite believe what people are saying."

Hmmm well that's a lot to say for someone who doesn't have a problem with anyone and who doesn't talk about beef!

Ah well, hopefully it's just some friendly rivalry and the bands can get over each other… and themselves.

OH EM GEEEE they should totally do a co-headling tour, or create a super band called Wanted: More Direction! That'll show those screaming fans that even the most contentious of enemies can find peace under the pop-boyband umbrella!

HA!

    look at where backstreet and nsync are now….they need to calm down and count their blessings. both of these groups will be nonexistant hot meseses in a few years.

    So far One Direction seems to ALWAYS mention The Wanted without being asked. The Wanted only mention them when they're asked questions about 1D, which is a huge reason I became more of a fan of The Wanted.

    I am a big fan of The Wanted and I have a lot of respect for them from coming up from nothing and building their game where as one direction already had it from being on x factor. One direction don't have a rock n roll kind of thing they make pop and the wanted have had different sounds on all of their CDs :)

    Guys, you may not be a fan of them (neither am I) or the Wanted but Liam is right, you gotta hand it to him. The Wanted have thrown even more shade at 1D this past year than 1D has thrown to them.

    i agree with helen. one direction talks so much more about the wanted. the wanted only talk about them in interviews when people ask. thats why i like the wanted way more then one direction.

    '… we'll do our rock'n'roll kind of thing.' Er no, no no no. It's bubblegum pop, not saying there's anything wrong with that, but it is what it is.

    I'm sick of one direction! The guys from the wanted seem cool, plus I like their new song I found you

    I'm sorry, but this quote got me "The Wanted have made their career more about us than anything else"? This idiot does realize that The Wanted have been in this industry for almost 4 years now…exactly how does their entire career revolve around One Direction? He sounds like a fool! And he has the nerve to say One Direction are a "rock'n'roll" kind of band…

    The best part however, is when he makes sure to state that him and his band stay out of the drama, then he goes on to trash the Wanted….HAHAHA I honestly find it humorous that he can't see the hypocracy shown in that statement alone…keep digging yourself a hole kid!

    The Wanted never said anything bad about 1D. You should just read that:

    One Direction act all immature about that and believe in every shit they've read. It's funny how The Wanted only talk about them when they're asked and are always saying how they respect 1D, while Louis and Liam act like idiots. And let me tell you one thing Liam - you are not rock n' roll, you might have more fans, but you're not nearly as talentes and The Wanted, so get off your high horse.

  10. Lily says – reply to this

    How is this "mad shade?" The only part of that which may have been mildly insulting was bolded, while the rest of the statement was him saying 1D don't have a problem with the Wanted and that both bands should just each do their own thing. And I have seen several things about the Wanted slamming One Direction and throwing jabs like they are all about the music while 1D is just about their faces while anytime One Direction is asked about the Wanted they always say nice things. I like both and think they are different enough they don't need to be compared, but if you read the whole interview he is hardly bashing them and being a jerk.



  11. 11

    They have decent songs but both of these bands lack the vocals/moves of many previous boy bands.



  12. 12

    And still no mention of your butt-dart victims, the pretty little girl-boys in IM5. Yet another failure for you, eh homo?



  13. 13

    The wanted have been around a few years so you should show some respect. They have paved the way for Uk boybands like you in recent years. And as for you saying they do dance music whilst OD do rock n roll…just let me die laughing at the delusions! The wanted have had quite a few big UK hits that dont qualify as dance music and OD are PURE POP. Manufactured pop at that. I mean, know your place.

    The Wanted have said many time that their words about One Direction being just pretty faces were twisted. They always say good stuff about them, they've congratulated them on TT many times and those idiots just keep trashing them. And no Liam, your band doesn't play rock n' roll music and you're only popular because little girls love you.



  15. 15

    Re: Prince Charming – nobody wants to see boybands doing those sync dance moves anymore. Its cheesier than a tramps dick.



  16. 16

    Bahahahahaha I'm sorry…not even weighing into the argument but One Direction thinks they sing rock and roll??? Can't stop laughing. At least the boy bands of my era knew they were singing pop music.

    Give him a break. He is the only one with real talent in One Direction. The boy can sing.

    I agree with Liam on this one. I have read several things about The Wanted throwing shade towards One Direction. I like 1D but come on Liam, "rock and roll?" I love you guys but you are NOT rock and roll lmao!

  21. lala says – reply to this


    21

    HAHA thats why i would ALWAYS choose the JONAS BROTHERS over all this new bands.

  22. ren says – reply to this


    22

    Yes Nice one 1D. not big fan of the two but liam was right… Its about damn time they trash the wanted. The Wanted has always been so trashy on them. Its then who says 1D are just pretty faces, wheb asked about being better, the wanted say all of them can play instrument, the wanted said in an interview when they were mistaken for 1D that they have a better album, Nathan indirectly tweeted louis that truth hurts and now the wanted said that they are happy to see british acts except 1D.. it is only now that the 1D were talking shit about this band. sorry but just noticed.

  23. Lamb says – reply to this


    23

    One Direction doesn't need to mention The Wanted to get attention or be in the news everything they do is written about. One Direction never throws shade unless its thrown at them first. The Wanted have dissed Christina Aguilera as well. Anyways One Direction are doing way better with popularity, record sales, and awards they're music is better and catchier. They've sold over 12 Million Records and counting. They are the biggest boy and in the world right now. The wanted can have several seats. As for Liam saying they are Rock & Roll I think he's referring to their new album which has a heavier sound! Thats all I need to say!!

  24. daniel says – reply to this


    24

    Re: Lamb – lol he said that this new album was going to be a lot like their previous one, which i wouldn't classify as rock n roll lol. I mean LWWY is as bubble gum pop as it gets.

  25. mary says – reply to this


    25

    first of all one direction is the best band ever !!!!!!!! no one should even say that the wanted is better they are just jelous that they are not as famous as 1D so you guys could defend them all you want

    REN, you really believe in everything you read? The Wanted never said that One Direction were pretty faces, some magazine made that up. They said on TT that the magazine twisted up their words and they don’t hate on anyone. When they were asked about why they are better than One Direction, they said: „we aren’t”, a Nathan added that they’re equal and have their own strengths. And you have to be kidding me if you’re taking their VMA interview seriously. It was just a banter, but Louis had to act like a child and make drama from all of it. However The Wanted have have the right to think that their music is better, it’s definitely much mature then One Direction’s music. And that last thing? The Wanted were asked what acts are they excited to see at Jingle Ball and they said Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. They simply haven’t mentioned One Direction (and many other artists), but they haven’t said: “We want to see everyone, except One Direction.” It’s just Directioners that made things up! There are a lot of videos and tweets where The Wanted are nothing but nice towards One Direction, and they (mostly Louis) act like idiots about the whole situation. And you know what? I can’t tell if Liam said that too, because it all could be made up. I’m not going to judge anyone, if I don’t have proofs.

    One Direction actually has a bit of rock influence in their music. Their song I Want especially has lots of guitars and drums.
    And I wouldn't say that only 1D says things about The Wanted without being asked. The Wanted has done it as well.
    The Wanted has definitely thrown way more 1D's way. 1D is very polite about it and did you see the way that Liam worded it? Very professional. I can't say the same about the Wanted

    The only reason they are so much more popular is because they were on XFactor. I'm not saying One Direction didn't work hard to get where they are now, but it was much more difficult for The Wanted to become popular in the U.S. They started out performing at schools for about 100 kids.

  31. Katie says – reply to this


    31

    Honestly, The Wanted haven't said anything bad about One Direction. So, by saying this, they are making themselves out to be complete dicks!



  32. 32

    Hard to make your whole career about One Direction when The Wanted had a number 1 single in the UK while 1D was still on Xfactor. And I still find it funny that you, PEREZ, ignored The Wanted for years even though they started their career opening for The Saturdays so you definitely had heard of them. Odd how you finally paid attention to them after they signed with Bieber's manager. But I'm sure you don't have a deal with any managers/labels to promote certain bands, right?

    seriously , TW never said they better than 1D . i also saw some directioner tweeting TW accused 1D stolen their "hi , we're The Wanted" . i just wanna ask to directioner since when TW said that ? "some" directioner always believe some rumors then spread without proof . during the VMA's TW also tweet congrats to 1D , but they even tweet or reply . then , loius acting such an immature way . and about the VMA's interview , they just get along with the interviewer and being joke but directioner really mad about it and TW get "hate" . last week Louis pretending being TW and directioner think it just a "joke" . i also see many directioner always come to TW channels and sayin' bout their boys but when i go to 1D channel i haven't see TW fan sayin' bout their bout their boy and if someone sayin' that "TW is better than 1D" the TW fan will sayin' "stop comparing them" thats show their fan respect 1D and salute for them. I'm not even a directioner or TWFanmily , but i'm sick of this drama and "some" directioner need stop being so immature cause' i know directioner is a big fanbase and really loves their idols and i respect them also . sincrely , person that sick of drama . btw Liam says "rock n roll" ?

    And Liam was my favorite… well, I guess he still might be, but this definately disappointed me.
    I'm sorry, since when is "What Makes You Beautiful" and "LWYY" "rock n roll?" Liam, the music you make is called POP, not rock n roll.
    And The Wanted have not made their career about 1D, they've made it DESPITE 1D. It would be so easy for them to make the more pop-py music and sell themselves as a "boy band" and restrain themselves from saying what they really feel (all like 1D) after seeing the success 1D has had. But no, The Wanted has stuck to who they are, always focusing more on the music and having normal 20-year-old fun.

    1D never talk about wanted unless they hv been asked.I think what liam saying is true….bt they both cn exist in de field, coz they'v got different musical styles.

    One Direction is more famous then the wanted.. so stop hating!! iloveyou liam=]
    the wanted been talkin shyt about 1D since ever !!! AND even if The wanted has been in the music industry more than 1D it doesnt matter cause ONE DIRECTION are more popular than them && they only been out for like 2 yrs! ONE DIRECTION IS THE BEST HATERS! so fuck off!!! ok Goodbye=] lol

    Total bullshit.



  42. 42

    This is so dumb. This is just the media trying to stir up attention for both bands. Liam said one little thing, and he was probably asked about the wanted. He then went on to say that the guys from the Wanted seemed really nice when they had met them. Their two differnt groups with two different fan groups. Get over it.

    I like the wanted, i like the fact they started from nothing… They are so big now,so congratulations! Keep it up, I found you is a tune!

  46. jessica says – reply to this


    46

    Re: daniel – and 1D have also said that there will be heavier drums and guitar on this album, therefore changing it a little bit so it has more of a rock sound but still has the pop base, so stop bashing unless you know all the facts sweetheart. and as for liam saying that about the wanted, good! its about time 1D starts fighting back and not putting up with all the bullshit the wanted say about them.

  47. E says – reply to this


    47

    Re: jessica – all the bullshit the wanted say about them? bitch please! Educate yourself. The Wanted were just on celebrity juice and said that they love One Direction and that they're words in the media were twisted. Don't believe everything you read.

    Re: ren – When you say indirect tweet I am guessing you mean nathan tweeted something and you have guessed that it was meant for Louis. ALSO in an interview when the wanted were asked why they were better they said that they were not that they were both the same. When one direction were asked who were better they always say themselves. 1d claim that tw talk about them but really the trash talk is not in speech commas which mean that it is not a quote and that it is just the newspaper saying the stuff. However in this case it is in speech commas. When the wanted met up with 1d Louis from 1d ignored them. Every one else was just laughing and having a good time. Also. At the start of this whole things one of the 1d members kept on trash talking the wanted through newspapers. BUT they were to scared to reveal who they were. and yes there was quotes so 1d were ACTUALLY TRASH TALKING

  50. Ella says – reply to this


    50

    Re: Jackie – urm….. no this is the perezhilton.com website not 1d music website. ALSO nice to know why you like 1d because they are big! and no there are plenty of bigger bands around. Like BIG BANG(K-POP) also they are no way rock n roll. one or two of there songs might have a bit of guitar in it but it is not rock n roll. THEY MUST BE SHIT IS THEY DON'T KNOW THERE OWN GENRE OF THERE SONGS

    It's funny how people are making digs at One Direction being a manufactured boyband, while making it seem like The Wanted aren't. Um TW auditioned for a spot in a boyband while 1D auditioned separately, but became a boyband anyway. So their stories are really quite similar in that way. Both bands have worked hard! I'm a massive, massive 1D fan, but I do like TW. I met Jay and Nathan when they came to NZ and had a nice chat with them- they were lads! Really awesome guys! So although, I'm a 1D fan, I wouldn't slam TW. I think when it comes to rivalry and these media comments, BOTH bands are wrong, to be honest. It may have started out funny or whatever, but they both took it too far and the fans need of both bands need to realise that. Also, fans and the like shouldn't even be getting into this rivalry business.. If we leave it, then it will eventually be dropped! Stop being shit stirrers (for lack of a better term) and let both bands be.. they'll get over it on their own

    1D finally take a stand and they're the bad guys????
    TW have been trash talking them a lot
    1D have been quiet for a long time u knw and 1D don't really trash talk anyone without a reason
    This is to everyone who's in denial thinking TW are saints

    'and we'll do our rock'n'roll thing" HAHAHA. No. 1D, you're not rock and roll. And what is their deal with bringing up The Wanted without being asked?! It's so obvious they got a problem with The Wanted. I'm loosing respect for One Direction :( See? This is the reason I'm leaning more for TWFanmily than Directioners. And The Wanted only talked about One Direction when they were asked. Oh and if you check the Sugarscape site, there is a video of Nathan and he is asked about 1D and doesn't say anything bad! Like really..

  56. Maria says – reply to this


    56

    Re: YAmii – So what if 1D are more popular? Doesn't mean you should have the right to insult The Wanted. You're telling us to not hate on 1D but somehow, you hate on The Wanted for being less popular but being in the industry longer, I bet if The Wanted were on XFactor, they would be just as popular but they worked their way to get to where they are by performing at schools etc. They only made their American Debut when 'Glad You Came' came out!

  57. maria says – reply to this


    57

    I like how Liam says that thet are making rock and roll music. That's all. :D :D :D Oh and by the way The Wanted have been here waaaaay before One Direction so there's not such a thing as them making their career more about 1d.

  58. billlabong says – reply to this


    58

    The Wanted HAVE said some dirty stuff about One Direction, and it's not until then, that 1D started to hit back. For those who think X-Factor is easy, well, you are wrong. In plain English, it is bloody hard to get through. One Direction is a boy band and they are still boys in their 18s, 19s and early 20s. You can't expect them to behave like mature adults. Kids of this age are far far worse than this.

    Re: Jonathan – that song is so annoying they have great vocals but this song really lacks especially when they sing the chorus they force their voices to sing that high that's no good. Liam has a point every time I read something about the wanted it was always them talking smack, it doesn't matter who came on the scene first at the end of the day it'll be the one the people love more.
