Let’s be honest, the only thing that could make this headline any better is if “The Wanted” was replaced with “One Direction.” However, I would say this is a pretty big step in the right direction for now.
TMZ reports that the boy band, the Wanted, that formed in 2009, will be calling it quits after their upcoming world tour. In a statement, a rep explained,
“This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Maz, Jay, Siva, and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavors following the tour’s conclusion.”
At the end of the day, isn’t it “personal endeavors” that end any boy band? Excuse me for ever comparing the greatness of N’SYNC to the floundering musical group that is the Wanted, but isn’t there always a Justin Timberlake in the mix who loves to ruin all the fun by pursuing their own musical career? I’d put money on the reason for the future break-up of One Direction being that Harry Styles wanted to pursue his own singing career, and all the other members will be soon forgotten. That’s what really differs N’SYNC from boy bands today, every member, besides JT, were special and memorable in their own unique way.
