The Wanted Discuss Britney’s Backstage Demands
Last week they called Christina Aguilera “rude”, now The Wanted have set their sights on Britney Spears.In an interview which aired on New York radio station Fresh 102.7, the group says Britney’s handlers made them face the wall as she walked past them backstage during their U.K. tour last year.
Wanted member Tom Parker said, “We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway.” The group’s Siva Kaneswaran added, “I was in the hallway with my tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get Wi-Fi … facing the middle of the hallway. (Britney’s) bouncers came down with her and told us to face the wall … As Miss Spears is walking through. We’re like, ‘Come on!’ We turned around and I faced a wall for about 10 seconds until she got really far away.”
Spears’s rep issued a statement saying, “What’s even more interesting than the false allegations they made up is the fact that they have claimed to be picked on by two female pop stars in just a few days. Look out Lady Gaga — there are still three days left this week.”
