Swift's rep, Tree Paine, tells PerezHilton.com:
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Kanye is straight-up INSANE!!!!!
Now now, boyz!
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.
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!
