In a recent radio interview, British boy band The Wanted revealed that BRITNEY SPEARS’ people made them face the wall whenever she would walk past while they were backstage during her tour.
After dissing Christina Aguilera and calling her a “total b*tch” last week, The Wanted has now set their sights on another female pop icon… Britney Spears.
During a celebrity news interview with NYC radio station Fresh 102.7, the “Glad You Came” group, who opened for Britney during her recent tour, revealed some backstage secrets that made her out to be a total diva.
Tom Parker said:
“We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway.”
His bandmate Siva Kaneswaran then explained:
“I was in the hallway with my tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get WiFi … 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.”
It’s pretty hard to believe that Britney would allow such rude treatment of her tour guests, especially after knowing that Joe Jonas and DJ Pauly D, who both joined her on her tour, were treated very well during their time with Brit—she gave both of them lap dances on stage!
Still, despite the wall-facing incident, the group admitted that Britney was actually a very lovely person. Jay McGuinness shared:
“Honestly when we actually met her person to person, she was so down to earth. You can tell she’s a total southern girl and Nathan, when he was a kid, won a singing competition. She was one of the judges or something. And she gave him a kiss, it was one of his first kisses as a kid. So he got to meet her again and support her.”
Though there seems to be no beef between Brit and The Wanted, the “Criminal” singer’s camp said in a statement:
“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.”
