It’s no secret the boys of The Wanted like to party. But things seemed to have gotten a little out of control when they finally arrived in Los Angeles leaving their manager, Scooter Braun, having to reel them in.
“It’s not like we’re going to set fire to a baby,” said Jay McGuiness, and to which Scooter replied, “…What I need you to do is understand that you’re not here to party.”
Considering Scooter also manages the likes of Justin Bieber, Psy and Carly Rae Jepsen, it’s probably words of wisdom The Wanted should heed. Will they adjust accordingly to life in L.A.? We’ll have to find out when The Wanted Life premieres on June 2nd on E!
If you’re a #TWPrisoner or just simply follow The Wanted, you probably know about Nathan Sykes and his resemblance to sloths. From Tumblr to Twitter, the Fanmily love pointing out anything sloth related that reminds them of the youngest member of the band.
If you’re new to the fandom and while reading this you’re thinking, “That’s rude! Why would fans compare our cute and lovable little Nathan to the furry and slow-moving animal?” Don’t worry, Nathan himself has pointed it out the resemblance many times by making jokes about it. And since sloths are slow, appearances aren’t the only similarity they share as Nathan seems to be the one everyone waits on, according to his bandmate Jay McGuiness:
Even sloths need their beauty sleep.
Now that you’re all caught up, here are 10 sloths that look like Nathan Sykes:
Watch out for these two and their super karate skills
“Sid the sloth” and Nathan channeling their inner Carly Rae Jepsen. Call Them… Maybe?
Can’t decide which is cuter: A cheeky baby sloth or cheeky Nathan Sykes, so let’s just call it a draw
It looks like boy band The Wanted have been making their ways around! Right after their appearance on Dancing With the Stars, jumped onto the set of The Voice Australia for yet another reality show performance. This time, Jay, Siva, Tom and Max performed their latest single “Walks Like Rihanna” on Tuesday. As usual, the boys looked and sounded great but we’re still a little sad that Nathan has been missing from the line-up as he recovers from his throat surgery.
The band will be doing more than performing on reality competition shows come this summer. The band’s own show, The Wanted Life, will premiere on Sunday June 2nd on E!. You can watch the preview for their Los Angeles shenanigans HERE.
British boy band The Wanted performed a cover of Tori Kelly’s “Fill A Heart” on Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. The proceeds of the band’s cover will go to the “Child Hunger Ends Here” campaign.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker later tweeted about their performance:
Loved performing on DWTS. And it was for a real worthy cause. Visit childhungerendshere.com to make a difference x

Missing from the group was Nathan Parker who is still recovering from throat surgery.
WATCH THE PERFORMANCE HERE
If you’re like me, chances are you’ve had The Wanted’s latest single “Walks Like Rihanna” stuck in your head since its release, and have been eagerly awaiting the music video as they’ve been teasing on Twitter. We don’t have to wait any longer because the video is here!
With a title like this, one would expect the guys to be galavanting down the streets of Los Angeles while being surrounded by beautiful women. Instead, the guy’s fall head over heels over one woman—their director! The guys decided to use the opportunity to mock or pay homage (I haven’t decided yet) to past boy bands by reenacting scenes from N’Sync’s “No Strings Attached,” The Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” and Take That’s “Back For Good.” I don’t know, I’m kind of getting a BSB “As Long As You Love Me” feel to the video too.
From the dance moves to the dramatic boyband poses, not gonna lie the video had me giggling ’til the end.
Jay, Max, Siva, Tom and Nathan also shared some behind the scenes footage on the U.K.’s Daybreak. Siva even confessed that he was supposed to be Kevin during their little homage to BSB.I’m going to assume Jay is Nick, Max is A.J, Tom is Brian and with Nathan’s hair slicked back, he’s clearly channeling Howie.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to hear the rest of this album.
WATCH THE BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE BELOW:
The boys in The Wanted have been living it up in sunny L.A. for the past couple of months. Thankfully, E!’s cameras were there to film their American adventures.
Jumping on the reality show bandwagon, The Wanted Life takes fans behind the scenes as The Wanted work on their new album, giving a bit of insight on the day in the life of being a part of one the biggest boybands around right now. Fans will have to wait until its premiere on June 2nd to see Jay, Siva, Max, Tom and Nathan on their TV sets but E! is giving a little preview of what fans can look forward to in this trailer.
Shall we host a viewing party? I think so!
Just a few days ago, The Wanted teased us with a snippet of their newest single, “Walks Like Rihanna”. Since then, we couldn’t wait until the full song premiere.
Luckily, the wait wasn’t too long as the single hit radio airwaves today and well, WE LOVE IT. It makes our hearts go boom boom! It might be a bit different than their previous singles, but we can still see ourselves singing this song into our good ol’ hair brush microphones.

TWFanmily can rejoice because a new The Wanted song is on the way! The band have just released a preview of the single, “Walks Like Rihanna.” Nathan Sykes‘ unplanned hiatus from the band may have thrown fans off guard but this pop number should hold them over until he makes a full recovery.
What do you think so far?
It’s no secret that the lads of The Wanted can be pretty dirty minded at times and apparently children’s literature is no exception. Yesterday during their visit to The White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll, the boys entertained some kids to a reading of Caps for Sale but it was near the end of the book when they read something so hilarious that Max, Tom, Nathan, Jay and Siva broke into a full on giggle fit.
I can’t exactly pin-point what caused the hilarity to ensue but if Nathan’s tweet is any indication, I can only imagine they managed, as only they can, to find some hilarious innuendo in a kids book about someone selling caps.
Major LOLs during their performance for ANDPOP
One of my favourite things about The Wanted is that they don’t take themselves too seriously. They started off our live-stream with not one, but two acoustic performances— ’I Found You’ and ‘Glad You Came.’ If you didn’t catch what all the laughing was about, they were making sexual noises during GYC. I see what you did there. [skittlesforjay]
Drunk in the studio?
Even though the guys are constantly busy on the road, they’re making time for their new album coming out early next year. Nathan blurt out, “When was the last time you were in the studio Jay?” He didn’t quite remember if it was yesterday… or the day before. Who could blame him, really? [nodoyjay]
Tom Parker 2.0
Jordan wanted to know what it would take to be a member of The Wanted. After him and Tom reversed roles, he showed off his British accent and suggested he could be the rapper in the group. When TW’s manager Scooter Braun called in, he even said he liked the new Tom better. Could it happen? [thewantedsexgods]
Siva knows what’s up
Nathan may be the youngest out of the guys, but don’t question him when it comes down to his vocal cords. That solo in ‘I Found You’ says it all. Wow. [teamjaythan]
Too close for comfort?
During the lyric, “I’m glad you came,” Nathan couldn’t help but give a little grip onto Siva’s leg. He was like — uh no. It’s okay Nathan, I’m single. [nathanns]

The JoBros are back
Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas are coming back into our lives! Last night, the trio hit up their fans on Ustream where they gave them a sneak peek to their upcoming album as well as their new app you can download. Are you excited for their comeback or totally over them?
Niall Horan parties it up at V Fest
One Direction’s Niall Horan hit up V Fest, with his party pals while being slightly undercover with those shades. Seems like even though Caroline Flack’s romance with Harry Styles is over, there’s still some friendship going on with another member of 1D who joined along for the fun.
Demi turns the big 2-0!
Yesterday Ms. Demi Lovato turned 20-years-old. I don’t know about you, but it feels like forever until we finally get to watch X-Factor. I can’t wait to see how Demi interacts with Simon (we all know about Simon + Paula back in American Idol days). The 2 night X-Factor premiere starts September 12 & 13.

We’re sending our get-well wishes to Rihanna, who broke her toe while vacationing in France. Her friend and assistant Jennifer Rosales posted the photo on Instagram with the caption: “It’s not a vacation until someone breaks a toe!” Ouch! Rihanna tweeted: “Bar tending last night, dropped a bottle, broke it, my foot is still bleeding!!!”
Victoria Duffield & Cody Simpson
We secretly hoped Victoria Duffield would be collaborating with Cody “Swoon” Simpson when she hinted at it over Twitter and now we have confirmation that this is FACT. The track will appear on her debut album and more details will be announced net week, including the song title, album title and release date.
