The Wanted's Max George compares One Direction to the Jonas Brothers
George made the claim to the Metro, believing The Wanted are a different specimen than Harry Styles et al because they are focused more on the actual music.
Both bands are experiencing success in the US at the moment, with The Wanted landing chart success, but George said that he isn't really sure how the former X Factor contestants are doing Stateside. He said:
"I'm not sure how well they're actually doing yet. They're more faces, if you know what I mean."
He continued: "I don't think people really look at us over there as the same kind of band because I think people look at them more like a Jonas Brothers sort of band that are very TV and children's magazine based. They make magazines instead of actually hearing them on the radio."
