Boy Band Feud Klaxon! How One Direction And The Wanted Could Settle The Score

The words dirty, laundry, airing and public are definitely the first to spring to mind when mulling over the slightly ridiculous/hilarious feud between boy bands The Wanted and One Direction.

The lads - who have long-running beef, scaling from 1D's Zayn Malik calling The Wanted's Max George "chlamydia boy" (nice) in a very bizarre argument, to arranging some sort of Wild Wild West-type duel - have been rowing on Twitter... AGAIN.

one direction the wanted

The virtual ruckus started after Directioner Louis Tomlinson was caught on camera mocking the indie rocker Jake Bugg (who, BTW, recently criticised the five-piece) for supporting The Wanted in concert.

What happened next, goes as follows:

The vid clearly touched a nerve with Tom from The Wanted who took to the twittersphere saying, "You even talk about us at your own gigs. Are you that upset you didn't get in this band." Burn!

To which Louis responded, "Pal, we both know I wouldn't waste my time auditioning for your band. You humour me with your bad boy persona." Er, Louis we think it's actually spelt 'boi', gosh.

The two backed-and-forthed a bit, which resulted in Lou Lou referring to Tom as, "the biggest tw*t on twitter." AND then Tom sneakily referencing Twitter rumours Louis and Harry Styles are conducting a secret relationship, pleasingly dubbed "Larry Stylinson". Actual lol.

Oh, and then Louis broke out this killer comeback, "I also heard he [Tom] wets the bed."

the wanted and one direction

Hold on, there's more. Jay outta The Wanted decided to wade on in and compose this spectacular monologue, "Dear Louis Tomlinson, please stop mentioning us in your gigs, we certainly no longer mention you and it's time to let dead dogs lie.

"Your passive-aggressive style of speaking makes me cringe, and I wish you'd either have the b*llocks of some of your co-workers to speak truthfully, or the class of the majority of them to be silent.

"I'm not sure what's happened since we saw you at the X Factor, but you've done a sterling job of becoming one of the most overrated, arrogant and not to mention insincere people around.

"Your shocking lack of talent will only be forgiven by lots of humility and no-strings-attached friendship among your band.

Louis, don't measure your worth in followers or money, because they're fickle, and when they go you might just feel worthless." Apologies for quoting the epic 'Can You Smell What The Rock Is Cooking' speech in its entirety, but you needed to see it to believe it. To top the whole thing off, Tom, Louis and 1D Liam's girlfs all chucked in their two cents worth. Awks.

Anyway, Team MyDaily have come to the conclusion that all this beating round the beef bush - though totes hilare - is a ma-husive waste of time and if these lads are serious they need to indulge in a proper battle-of-the-news-channels-esque showdown a la Anchorman.

We can just see it now... We imagine Take That will play the Spanish Langauge News Channel. Como esta bitches.
