London: Just days days after slamming Christina Aguilera and calling her a ‘total b****’ on national radio, Tom Parker from The Wanted has issued a retraction of sorts.
“The rest of the judges were really nice, but she just didn’t look at us or talk to us, d’you know what i mean?” a leading daily has quoted him as telling a website outside the Mondrian hotel in Hollywood.
“We apologise for the comment, but common courtesy...” he said.
Parker did say that the band shouldn’t have said what they did, but explained why they did make the comment, after appearing with Aguilera on ‘The Voice’.
“We shouldn’t have said it, to be honest with you. We just think manners cost nothing, you know what I mean?” he added.
The whole thing started after The Wanted made a guest appearance on ‘The Voice’ in the US, and told a radio station: “She’s a total bitch. She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us she was a bitch.”
Max George said that she refused to talk to them backstage after the show, saying: “She was a bit scary to be honest.”
“She might not be a b**** in real life but to us she was a b****. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.”
“She was quite rude. Who does that?” another band member Siva Kaneswaran added.
