Britney’s people fear for Lady Gaga in the wake of The Wanted’s wrath

And Finally

The Wanted

A spokesperson for Britney Spears has responded to The Wanted’s recent claims that they were forced to face the wall when she walked past them backstage when they supported her at a show last year.

As previously reported, having branded Christina Aguilera a “total bitch” a few days earlier, the group made the allegations about Britney in a radio interview with New York station Fresh 102.7.

Despite the fact that talking about it apparently breached a “confidentiality thing”, the group’s Siva Kaneswaran, said: “I was in the hallway with my tour manager. Basically we were looking with a laptop, trying to get wi-fi, facing the middle of the hallway. [Britney's] bouncers came down with her and told us to face the wall. We turned around and I faced a wall for about ten seconds until she got really far away”.

Speaking to E! Online, a spokesperson for Spears said: “What’s even more interesting than the false allegations they made is the fact that they have claimed to be picked on by two female pop stars in just a few days. Look out Lady Gaga – there are still three days left this week”.
