who cares if the wanted don't look as "picture perfect" as one direction. Reality is you're not going to marry someone who everybody assumes to be beautiful, but in your eyes they are flawless. Which is what I think about the wanted, even though you may disagree. And who cares if the wanted aren't as popular as one direction? At the end of the day it's the music that matters. Don't count your worth in the amount of twitter followers or money you have, because it makes you look like a shitty person.

They are good looking they just disrespect girls whereas 1D talk about girls in adoring ways. Even in interviews one says: "ya I've slept with fans actually." In my eyes it's fucked up
Honestly I am a huge fan of One Direction, have been from the start but I would never hate on anyone; especially if they're just a fan of the music. Seriously the way some of  The Wanted fans and I hate to say it Directioners are acting is pathetic. Learn to respect each other and not judge or hate.

Grow up. Both are good so stop saying one is better. They both have talent. Stop these stupid posts is immature. They probably still fight because of their fans who hold a grudge too long

+Leeann Loffredo Why can't we have our opinion? I agree that it is immature, but can't we still have our opinion? P.S No harm meant in this comment:)

I only like Nathan the rest seem to be a bunch of assholes!! The bald guy even admits to sleeping with loads of girls/fans. That's fucked up! He needs to respect girls they way One Direction do!! I used to always watch The Wanted Life on E! but some of them are just creeps. 1D speak highly of themselves and girls! You don't hear them saying: "Ya I've slept with loads of fans, actually." And the wanted would still be going if they didn't have that feud. They're just jealous the band that they were bigger than has grown to be the worlds most successful boy band. So we don't need to 'check' we don't just support a band who can't sing, who writes shit songs, who disrespects girls and who think they're better than everyone else. To say they are better than the biggest band on the planet is something else.

Just because they play instruments doesn't mean they are good at it! Niall is soooo good at guitar
