The Wanted Were Prohibited from Looking at Britney Spears

British/Irish boy band The Wanted, who recently stopped by Fuse for an afternoon of chat and performance, are no strangers to beef, already having nearly come to blows with One Direction and called Christina Aguilera "a total b*tch." So it's no surprise that they're serving us another helping of beef, this time directed at Britney Spears, who the band has actually opened for.

In an interview with Fresh 102.7 radio, the band's Tom Parker began by saying, "We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway," which is always a sick way to begin a story.

Siva Kaneswaran continued, "I was in the hallway with my tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get WiFi, and we were facing the middle of the hallway. [Britney Spears'] bouncers came down [the hallway] with her and told us to face the wall..." Tom Parker interjected, "As Miss Spears is walking through. We’re like, come on!" Man, poor The Wanted. Not even allowed to gaze upon Britney Spears.

And in another beef unrelated to Britney Spears, The Wanted's Jay McGuinnes managed to mention, in the same interview, that Justin Bieber once "punched Siva [Kaneswaran] in the balls." I'm really starting to like these kids.

So what do you think about The Wanted? Are you into how spicy they are or should they just keep quiet for a minute and not ruin their career?
