Tony Parker and Jay McGuiness from British boy band The Wanted were seen leaving Perez Hilton’s party at London’s Mahiki Nighclub last Tuesday (July 17). Tony had his girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick with him.
The two – including fellow members Max George and Siva Kaneswaran – have partnered with Coca Cola to help light the Olympic torch. They also will be performing the final concert live from Hyde Park on July 26th.
The Wanted are constantly being compared to One Direction. So how do they feel about it?
Max has said, “They’re more faces, if you know what I mean. I don’t think people really look at us over there (America) as the same kind of band because I think people look at them more like a Jonas Brothers sort of band that are very TV and children’s magazine-based. They make magazines instead of actually hearing them on the radio.
“I think our audience over there is sort of 18 to 25 or 30. We have a lot of radio play but I think we’re more of a music band.”
