The Wanted reveal concerns over popularity in America

British boyband The Wanted have revealed their relief at not having to undergo drastic makeovers for their American audience.

The lads have enjoyed phenomenal success in the USA so far and were pleased to discover their stateside fans accepted them as they were.

Singer Jay McGuiness explained to Closer magazine that their image and language were an initial concern, but they have been embraced with open arms across the pond: "It's surprising - we thought America would hate us."

"We don't wear amazing clothes and we're quite uncensored in interviews, but they seem to like that. It's a relief because we'd have to polish our look. Thankfully there will be no American makeover for The Wanted."

The group's members also admitted that the prospect of signing a deal with Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, is so exciting although nothing has been confirmed as of yet:

"Nothing's been signed, but we think he'd be the perfect manager and he's really keen to work with us. We have a very different image from Justin - but he's probably the most famous and richest teen in the world, so we wouldn't mind being in a boy band version of that!"




They are currently filming the music video for their new single, 'Chasing The Sun', and you can listen to it in full here:
