Following their failed attempt at having a rumble with fellow boy band One Direction, The Wanted have chosen a new target in the form of massively more famous singer Christina Aguilera. Those stupid, sexy, boys.
In a recent interview with NYC pop radio station 92.3 NOW FM, “band” member Tom Parker said the following about meeting X-tina during their appearance on her show, The Voice:
She’s a total bitch…She’s a bitch…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. I’m sick of you!! [Motions to camera as if to address Christina.]
Oh boy. It would seem Parker is attempting to employ the time tested “start a beef with someone more famous than you” method of fame-mongering, which is a dicey proposition at best. While it may initially bring you attention, unless you choose a target everyone already hates, they’re probably going to come out with some sort of statement about how they don’t care, and furthermore, wish you well, and you end up looking like the petty one in the end. Then again, Christina has been known to take the bait before (see also: her nasty feud with a then-teenage Kelly Osbourne), so maybe she’ll sink to their level. I can’t wait to see what she says! (Suggestion: “Who’s The Wanted?”) This could get ugly.
