The Wanted singer Max George has blamed his band’s split on One Direction! He said that his band could never have competed with the popular boy band and so they had to go their separate ways.
In a new interview with The Sun, he said, “One Direction are a phenomenon that no one else can compete with. They’ve taken over the market. We have our own fans, who we love, but we couldn’t stop things from happening.”
He went on to say, “It shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. As upsetting as it might be to some of the other guys, I have to live my life. Nathan and I haven’t broken any promises either because we’re both going to be on the tour.”
On their official website, the band announced a temporary split in January. They said in their statement, “This tour will be their last tour for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavors following the tour’s conclusion. The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects in the future. They thank their fans for their continued love and support and look forward to seeing them on tour.”
It was recently reported that the members of Def Leppard were planning a lawsuit against the members of the boy band One Direction over the similarities between Pour Some Sugar On Me and 1D’s hit Midnight Memories. Despite those reports, Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen of Def Leppard are setting the record straight that there is no lawsuit in the works.
Listen to Midnight Memories:
And Pour Some Sugar On Me:
In a new interview with Billboard.com, Vivian said, “The One Direction one is very similar in structure, but it’s all good. The chords are one-four-five. Those are the blues. You don’t get more basic than that. I think what’s more reminiscent of the Leppard thing is the production, the sound, the vocals, the reverb and the way it’s assembled.”
He added, “That is very flattering that all of a sudden these kids think it’s a cool sound. I think a lot of people of their generation aren’t going to connect their music to ours.”
And who could compare their music to Def Leppard? Really, Def Leppard blows a lot of acts right out of the water with regard to the production and sound. Thoughts?
One Direction singer Harry Styles has silenced the rumors about his sexuality by insisting he is not gay or bisexual. Did anyone think he was gay?
The heartthrob has been dogged by persistent speculation about his relationship with Nick Grimshaw, but Styles insists the they are just good pals.
In a new interview with the U.K.’s GQ magazine, Styles says, “We’re not dating, no. We’re just friends,” before adding, “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
The singer goes on to admit he is rarely bothered by gossip about his love life, adding, “Some of them (the rumors) are funny. Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumors.”
“I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying.”

According to the latest gossip, country singer Taylor Swift has been receiving death threats over her newly revamped relationship with One Direction singer Harry Styles.
“The X Factor USA” host Mario Lopez all but confirmed rumors that Taylor had rekindled her relationship with Harry. The duo were said to be spotted backstage at the show last week, prompting the host to tell all about their newly minted relationship status.
Mario said to 104.3 MY FM, “Taylor Swift was the special guest performer and here’s a little inside scoop for you. During rehearsals Harry from One Direction came over and slapped me on the back, and said, ‘Hey Mario how ya doing?’ And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ and he sort of pointed towards Taylor. Later I saw them walking off hand in hand. So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction – you heard it here first. They’re officially hanging out, I can say that much.”
Apparently there are people out there who are not happy with Taylor dating Harry and she has been on the receiving end of death threats on Twitter. A source said that a fan of the group posted on Twitter, “I’ll murder Taylor Swift. She will not date my Harry.”
Another Twitter follower of the band said, “If u dating my harry, I kill u.”
Prior to her appearance at the American Music Awards on Sunday night, Taylor paid the bullies no mind. She tweeted, “Walked into my AMA dressing room and there was this little bowl of candy in there. Literally shrieked with excitement. Need to tone it down. Getting ready for the AMAs! Maybe if you feel like it, you’ll watch?”
