The Wanted broke up this year after wrapping their Word Of Mouth Tour, and now the guys are talking about why that is. It was assumed that the guys had been arguing and had a falling out, but former member of The Wanted, Tom Parker, spilled to the press that the split was actually because of popular boy band One Direction!
Tom told Digital Spy:
For The Wanted to try and compete against one of the biggest bands in the world – One Direction – it’s almost impossible. I don’t think any band out there can compete with them at the moment.
We’re pretty bummed out about The Wanted’s reason for breaking up! We think they were doing a great job in the industry, and they had a ton of loyal fans!

Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson have been hard at work on a new project together, and it sounds like it’s something fans will be going crazy over! Justin had this to say about the new music that’s on the way:
Sometimes you pick up a guitar and magic starts to happen. Feels good to just make music. might be giving you something sooner than I thought. Taking it back to how I started.
He also posted the following note for Cody:
@CodySimpson the best projects are ones you don’t plan for. This is special music.
We are beyond excited to hear what Justin and Cody have been working on!
Plus here’s a note about the project from Cody and Justin’s manager Scooter Braun:
