JT’s bringing sexy back, again
I’m so ready for new music this year, especially from hit-maker/hottie Justin Timberlake. In his open letter, he wrote: “This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the “grapevine,” I’m gearing up for a big 2013.” Not gunna lie, I was a total *NSYNC fan girl and I miss those years so dearly. There has been much mixed reviews about his new single “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z but just wait people, JT does not disappoint. [2x04]
And that’s a wrap
Basically there’s two types of Tumblr users: The ones who have an account but don’t want anyone to know about it, or the ones who post their link everywhere! Next time someone who is not a Tumblr expert asks what’s beyond the Tumblr log in page, this picture pretty much sums it up. [ch0col4te-chip]
Things just got a little bit more wild
The Wanted made their way onto the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards last week and were clearly their usual self, which we love. They picked up “Breakout Artist” and I truly believe they deserved it. While the other band members made their way back to the UK, Nathan Sykes stayed in LA to work in the studio for their new album. I cannot wait. [stefyandkrasy]
There’s always that one friend on any social media website that posts adorable pictures of their cat, and you can’t resist. I wonder if this person’s tattoo is some sort of kitten obsession? [kitsunekenta]
Wake up to heaven in a bowl
Every night before I go to bed, I have to have my cookies and milk. No, I’m not eight-years old but I sure do love my chocolate chips. When I came across this amazing invention, of putting mini cookies in a bowl of milk, I shed a tear. There’s nothing I love more than food and I’m about to run through my grocery store to make this happen tomorrow morning. [inhalekidcudi]

Ellen wasn’t the only big winner at The People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 9. The Wanted won their VERY FIRST award for Best Breakout Artist (yay!) and they decided to say thank you by singing a bluegrass song dedicated to Ellen, since she has been a huge advocate for them. Ellen gave the guys their first big break a year ago today, when she invited them on the show.
The band was so thankful that they decided to surprise Ellen on her show this morning with bouquets of flowers and kisses.
“We never forgot that,” said Jay McGuiness. “It’s been a very good year for us but the whole time, we never forgot. You took a big risk.”
Ellen was flattered but said she knew they would make it big and was happy to help them in any way she could. “Here’s to another year better than that so that you again, dedicate every speech to me,” she said.
What would you do for a bouquet of flowers from The Wanted?

If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go
Although Justin Bieber’s been going through some controversy in the New Year, he never turns away from his Beliebers. Justin’s Believe Tour started back up this weekend and NOTHING is stopping him. Well c’mon, with a body like that, who wouldn’t wanna get shirtless? [allfredoflores]
Future parents: Kimye
Were you surprised when you heard Kim Kardashian is preggers? I wonder if the baby will become BFFs with Blue Ivy? According to reports, Kim and Kanye have already turned down a $3 million offer from a magazine that wants exclusive photos of the newborn. Obviously Kris Jenner wasn’t in the talks for this, you know how she loves money, money, money. [lovekardashian]
Twitcam fun with your fave celebs
The guys from The Wanted may come across as super hot, hilarious and have accents you can’t resist, but they also spend a lot of their time interacting with fans. It’s no surprise that band member Nathan Sykes hopped on Twitcam for over an hour to answer question and read hilarious comments from the “TW Fanmily.” Please don’t ever change! [the-queen-of-dreams]
At least she’s being honest
I’m not 100 percent sure how I feel about Toddler and Tiaras but some of the things these kids say boggles my mind. I hope once they become adults, they can look back and realize how crazy they sounded — not only them but the way their parents acted too. I guess that’s the pageant lifestyle for you. [hiimalec]

The smoking hot guys from The Wanted performed an acoustic cover of “I Found You” during ANDPOP’s LIVE interview with them. They’re amazing artists in the studio but they proved they can put on a wicked acoustic show too.
As always, the guys let loose while performing — clapping to the beat, laughing with each other and fooling around. Especially little Nathan, who stole the show.

Holiday movie marathon
If you’re in college or university, you’re probably finishing up your exams and final assignments. There’s nothing better than not worrying about school work anymore and being able to just flop on the couch to relax. Elf is definitely one of my favourite Christmas movies! Do you guys have an other suggestions? [monstrothewhale]
Time to decorate the tree
Nice to know my family decorated the tree without me this year. Not bitter at all… Anyway, are you the type of person to decorate a fake tree straight out of the box or be extra festive and find the perfect Douglas Fir? [snooowflake]
My Christmas wish came true
*SIGH* If only you could wish for a super cute, soul singing celeb for Christmas. I guess the next best thing is picking up one of their albums, or seeing your faves hanging out together! Siva from The Wanted and Ed Sheeran have played a few Jingle Ball shows together. It’s always nice to see fellow artists supporting each other. [thewantedblog]
Make your holidays stress-free
As we all know, Mean Girls is a classic teen movie, and I’m sure you can learn a few things from it. If you’re involved in any sort of talent show, make sure to have patience. No one wants to fight during the happiest time of the year, right? [pactressia]
Leftover Christmas lights
Bring the festivities into your bedroom or dorm room with Christmas lights! They can double as a nightlight or just look super cool. [human1ty]

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]

ANDPOP interviewed the gorgeous guys from The Wanted for the third time this past weekend and they nearly broke my camera with their smouldering good looks. Check out some of the photos below:
Max looks broodingly off camera. What’s he thinking about?
Every time Jay smiles, 100 girls’ ovaries explode
Likewise, every time Max shielded his face from the camera, 100 girls screamed defiantly
Scooter Braun called us and said our host should change places permanently with Tom. What would you think about the swap? Read more…
We’re streaming an exclusive LIVE interview with The Wanted AND Carly Rae Jepsen from a Toronto location this Saturday, Dec. 1 at 2:15 ET. Hold your screams for the next part: The Wanted will be doing a LIVE acoustic performance too! You can watch it all go down on on ANDPOP.com and our YouTube channel.
Every time we interview The Wanted something crazy happens. One time they prank called a fan and accused them of stealing a dog and the other time Siva made up a rumor about his testicles for kicks (but actually). We’re also dying to ask them details about their forthcoming album!
We’ll be interviewing Canadian hottie Carly Rae Jepsen at 3:30. We’re obsessed with her new album Curiosity (seriously, it’s on repeat) and can’t wait to ask her about life on the road with Justin Bieber.
CATCH THE ENTIRE EVENT HERE AT 2:15 EST!!!
Miley turns the big 2-0
Last Friday, Miley Cyrus turned 20! Yes, you’d better realize that she’s no longer Disney’s Hannah Montana. She has already accomplished so much, from hit movies and songs, to getting engaged and spicing up her look. Live it up girl! [itsyagirlmiley]
The Canadian and British collide
If you’re one of the lucky Beliebers going to Justin Bieber’s Believe Tour, be aware that the boys from The Wanted will be on the road with the Biebs in NYC and Toronto. This isn’t the first time the guys have performed together either. I wouldn’t wanna miss this if I was you. [thewantedblog]
New tats for Demi
Demi Lovato isn’t shy when it comes to tattoos. Recently she got a flock of birds tattooed on her arm, courtesy of Kat Von D. She tweeted: “Thank you so much
@thekatvond for my new ink!! I think it’s beautiful and I love it!!” Do you have a tattoo you are dying to get? [herhealingheart]
A bit of a hat hair issue
When you’re in a band as popular as One Direction, you’re constantly watched by fans and paps. ALL THE TIME. The boys recently tried to escape from their NYC hotel and Niall did a quick hair-fix that made the girls go cray! [inpayneforstyless]

Taylor Swift — “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Taylor Swift experimented with dubstep in her new single “I Knew You Were Trouble,” reflecting a more mature sound. Red is one of the most eclectic and scattered albums of the year, combining elements of country, pop, dubstep and more mature ballads. Now I’m just crossing our fingers for an aesthetically grungy music video.
Miley Cyrus — “Decisions”
Miley Cyrus isn’t just experimenting with her style these days. Along with dying her hair platinum blonde and getting an undercut, she’s recording more modern sounding songs for her fourth studio album. Cyrus was featured in Bogore’s “Decisions” and while I wish she was more heavily featured (she’s in the chorus), I’m digging the dubstep vibe.
Alex Clare — “Too Close”
The best part about Alex Clare’s song “Too Close” is the combination of dubstep with his Adele-powerful vocals. The soulful track was produced by electronic ninja Diplo and you can practically feel it in your lungs.

You’re coming with me mom!
Justin Bieber took home all three of his nominations at the American Music Awards Sunday night: Pop/Rock Male, Pop/Rock Album for Believe and Artist of the Year. He decided to bring up the most important woman in his life, his momma Pattie Mallette. Easy on the arms Justin, we know you’ve been working out and everything but she’s so fragile! Congrats! [christmaslove]
Story of my life
If you’re someone like me, I spend practically 90 percent of my money on concert tickets. It’s quite sad when you think about it, but hey, it’s spent on my idol and I’m never gonna forget it. Did you hear ANDPOP is giving away tickets to see Justin Bieber on his Believe Tour in Toronto Dec. 1? Make sure you enter before it’s too late! Good Luck. [opparr]
Always picking on Nath..
Sure Nathan may be the youngest member of The Wanted, but he proved himself in their newest music video, “I Found You.” I’m just waiting for the day he can sucker punch one of them just for the hell of it. I’m sure they won’t take it so harshly anyways. All the guys have great personalities! [redvelvetlipsbreakingallrules]
Rice krispies to the next level
Let’s be real, who doesn’t like a yummy winter treat? Instead of making the plain old square rice krispies, turn it into a little snowman and decorate it with candy or chocolate of your choice. It doesn’t get any better than that. [under-the-m1stletoe]
The cure to all problems
There’s one lyrical genius who can turn any situation upside down, and help you feel like you’re in a happy place again. Some call him “Ginger Jesus,” but Ed Sheeran is definitely one to look out for. He’ll be touring alongside Taylor Swift on ‘The Red Tour’ starting next year. [sup-maggie]

When the parental advisory warning came up for The Wanted’s new music video “I Found You” I thought to myself, come on really? How explicit could it be? Well m’am, there’s violence (lots of it) and definitely some type of criminal activity.
The dapper gents are on their way to find and rescue a blonde looker (or so we think) who was kidnapped by a creepy looking dude. The guys kick and punch their way up to her makeshift prison cell to release her, but not before Baby Nathan steals a steamy kiss. He’s growing up so fast!!
While I originally thought the “you” they were talking about in “‘I Found You” was the kidnapped beauty, I was wrong. All I can say, is there are just enough tough, sexy men in suits being aggressive with their adversaries to draw me in.
Here are the best comments on YouTube:
“*Parental Advisory explicit content* More like: *Warning. This video contains sexy men in suits. We are not responsible fo any ovaries that may explode whilst watching this*” — peridotemma
“bad boys rawwwrrrr : )……… no matter ….ilove U <3 the wanted” — iveth marcela salazar
“Justin biber” — metin330
“Stop comparing TW and 1D. There is a huge difference between the two bands. One Direction: 5 cute little boys The Wanted: 5 sexy men You’re welcome! : )” — africanbeautyqueen89
“omg I died I died. They are so hot omg omg and Jay’s hair and Nathans’s voice and Siva at all and Tom at the end omg omg omg I died.” — SwagOnMeBiebs

Water park + Justin Bieber = Best music video ever?
After watching Justin Bieber’s new music video for “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, I couldn’t help but watch it over and over again! Seems like it payed off because yesterday VEVO tweeted: “24hr Record shattered w/ 10.6M VIEWS! No wonder @justinbieber is the biggest artist in the world!” [fuckyesjustinbieber]
My laptop is pretty much like my child. I use it on a daily basis and with that being said, I want to glitz it up with coloured keys. Has anyone else tried it? [italianluxury]
The boys are back on a whole new level
The Wanted released their new action packed video for “I Found You” and things get a little steamy for Nathan Sykes. The youngest member of the band, often refereed to as “Baby Nath” isn’t much of a baby anymore..and we like it. [madefornath]
But I can’t have just one…
Eekkk, Halloween is two weeks away, but you’ll definitely be seeing all kinds of chocolate, candy and decorations on the shelves. Just remember to buy an extra box and keep a hidden stash for all your cravings. [fallinlovewiththeseasons]
Do you approve?
Zayn Malik told Fabulous Mag, “At the moment I’m probably on about eight or nine cigs a day, which I tell myself isn’t too many. I just don’t want it to affect my health.” [niallersangel]
That awkward moment when… Read more…
Soo many good tweets from The Wanted as they were on set yesterday filming their brand new video for “I Found You,” and torturing us with behind the scenes pics of them looking smoking HAWT. Check out Nathan above and Max with a dog named Boris below (Boris seems to be an integral part of the video). The guys look pretty bundled up and dapper in this video, though we’re wondering why Tom has a gash on his cheek in one of the photos. That guy is certainly the trouble maker in the group. And I like it. (Check for more photos after the jump.)
The main reason I follow Justin Bieber on Twitter is so I can get MIND BLOWING tweets like the one above. The second reason I follow him is so I can gawk at awesome half-naked photos and talk about them with my friends over coffee like: “OMG did you see that Instagram photo of JB?” The THIRD reason I follow him is for funny videos of adults trying to understand Bieber like this:
For some inexplicable reason, comic book anti-hero and mercenary decided to spread some joy and cover Psy’s viral hit “Gangnam Style.” He dances all over town and air humps unsuspecting bystanders on the street. However, the best part is when he makes his way into a campus library, dressed in full costume and starts doing the horse-riding move (the same one Psy recently taught Britney Spears).
We’ve seen a few covers so far, including one by The Wanted, a hip mom and another by Matrix superfans. While we’re not tired of them yet, I suspect the amount of covers/parodies might just trump Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” So we’ve got a long way to go…
Watch it here:
About discovering love in an unexpected place, the song features bouncy synths and a quick tempo. This song was also produced by Steve Mac, who also worked on ‘Glad You Came.’
What do you think of the new tune? While it sounds a lot like their first single, my prediction says they’ll do well with this new single. Because really, who doesn’t like a catchy tune to dance along to?
You sure get a lot of advantages if you work with Scooter Braun. Since Braun represents so many amazing talents, I imagine their company Christmas party to be all like: “You’re soo amazing Justin Bieber,” “No, you’re so so amazing The Wanted!!”
As we all know, Korean popstar Psy signed a record deal with Braun and he’s already getting to perform with Scooter’s other clients. At a recent concert at Los Angeles’ Avalon, Psy joined The Wanted on stage and performed his viral hit “Gangnam Style.” The result, was pure magic.
When will he perform with Justin Bieber?

That awkward moment when you’ve fallen in love with A
After muchos thought and consideration, Spencer had sex with Pretty Little Liars’ Toby, who totally had his eyes open when he was kissing her (why were they open TOBY?). Turns out the dude is part of the A-team, but we’re crossing our fingers he’s working undercover. What did you think of the midseason finale, which was aptly called “BetrAyal?” [prettyl-ittleliars and prettylittleliarsquestions]

ANDPOP interviews The Wanted Read more…
By Sophall Duch
Carly Rae Jepsen
What she’s wearing: The Canadian popstar performed on The Today Show wearing a coral Kelly Wearstler dress paired with printed Alice + Olivia “Juliet” wedges, an ASOS necklace, and a white studded belt.
Why we love it: Coral is on trend as the summer colour for lips, so Jepsen took it a step further by wearing it in a bright summer dress. The watercolour-type pattern creates a cool graphic design and is accented well with her silver accessories.
Takeaway: Monochromatic looks are on trend but make sure to use a different colour for your accessories so things aren’t too matchy matchy.
What they’re wearing: The UK boy band performed at the John F. Kennedy airport in NYC for the JetBlue Live From T5 Concert series, wearing graphic tees, jeans, a sport coat, chambray, and more.
Why we love it: Well it’s more that we like four out of five of the looks and excluding Jay would just seem too cruel. Siva, in the grey sport coat, looks the most put-together with his slightly monochromatic look. His T-shirt has a hint of navy, which gives a subtle pop of colour. Tom and Nathan rock the cool graphic tees, but I give the edge to Nathan since his mustached monocle print is more fun and his khakis set him apart from the rest of the group. Max wears a light blue short-sleeve button-down in chambray (a light woven fabric resembling denim) — a fabric that has made a major comeback. And Jay, well he’s wearing a novelty tee that can be either seen as vulgar or hilarious, nothing fashionable about it. However since Jay is known for his sense of humor he can get away with it, but he does bring down the group’s fashion average. Sorry!
Takeway: When choosing graphic tees try choosing a graphic that suits your personality because they’ll send a message to others about you. Try staying away from novelty tees because they may seem funny at first sight but the joke usually is over by the second glance, then you’ll be the joke instead of your shirt.
