One Direction, comprised of Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik, and The Wanted, comprised of Tom Parker, Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaran, and Nathan Sykes, two of the UK’s top boy bands, first met up at a massage parlor, of all places, in America. What in the world were ten young British/Irish guys doing hanging out at a massage parlor?!
The two groups have become extremely successfulÂ—both top the Billboard chartsÂ—yet, they’ve not met on UK territory.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker said, “We only saw them once when we bumped into them at a massage parlour. It was in the smallest unused rehearsal space and they were literally next door. So we went and said ‘hi’.”
Nathan Sykes joked that since both The Wanted and One Direction were in America at the same time, “it turned into a British invasion.”
Speaking of The Wanted and One Direction, there was a crazy rumor that Louis Tomlinson had auditioned and was rejected from The Wanted at one point. Who knows where people come up with this stuff, but it’s not at all true. Louis Tomlinson actually thought that rumor was pretty hilarious.
It doesn’t sound like anything fishy went on in the massage parlorÂ—thank goodness! Just an innocent run-in.
