The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran Responds to Max George’s Comments About Split
It sounds like no one in the Wanted is communicating effectively or properly.
The band announced a break but not a breakup last week, promising to remain a unit after stretching their creative muscles and doing other things for the time being.
Then, member Max George revealed that he was moving to L.A., had signed with CAA and planned to act, saying that he and bandmate Nathan Sykes were ready to branch out and that the other members, who were butt hurt, should not be shocked.
Siva Kaneswaran has now responded to those claims, since George’s post-announcement comments made it sound like he had already closed the door and like he was the catalyst for the hiatus, with no desire to return.
George had said, “Our personal lives drove us apart — things started to happen and we were drifting….We had a very difficult conversation. Our manager Scooter Braun asked us who would want to take a step out after the tour and try to do their own thing. Me and Nathan both said we have our own ambitions. We were more prepared than the others because we’d looked at how things had been going with the band over the past few months. No one should be surprised.”
Now, with a pre-hiatus tour on the horizon, his bandmates are speaking out about his words.
“I think we all need to talk, sit down, and discuss this as a band,” Kaneswaran, who got engaged at the end of 2013, told Perez Hilton. “And honestly, I think quite frankly, what Max did was very disappointing. We really have to sit down and discuss this. And I mean, figure out if it’s something that we can move past and just communicate. I think that was the problem, not communicating.”
Yikes! Sounds like the boys need to get things organized and to get on the same page. Maybe they need to call a certain someone with red hair in to diffuse this sitch before it escalates into a full-on row.
Perhaps this drama might bode well for when they return. You never know.
