When British boy band the Wanted opened for Britney Spears, they were told not to look at the pop superstar, group members said in an interview with Fresh 102.7

“We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway,” said member Tom Parker.

Siva Kaneswaran continued: “I was in the hallway with me tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get WiFi, and we were facing the middle of the hallway. Her bouncers came down with her and told us to face the wall . . .”

 “As Miss Spears is walking through,” Parker added. “We’re like, come on!”

This isn’t the first time the Wanted have had some words to say about one of the world’s biggest pop stars. Following their appearance on The Voice a few weeks back, Parker said of judge Christina Aguillera during an interview with 92.3 Now“She’s a total bitch! . . . She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.”

“She was quite rude,” added Kaneswaran. “Who does that?”

After receiving plenty of flack from Aguilera’s fans Parker apologized, sort of, a few days later, telling TMZ, “We shouldn’t have said it, to be honest with you. We just think manners cost nothing, you know what I mean?”
