1D's Liam: "The Wanted Are Really Trashy About Us"
Payne says TW are nice to their faces, but still trash talk his band in the media...
During an interview with Fabulous magazine, Payne revealed he was disappointed with some of the band's comments about 1D, stating Max George and Co were "nice to our faces" but "really trashy" when discussing One Direction in the press.
Liam - who recently split with long-term girlfriend Danielle Peazer - told the publication: "The only thing that's bad for me about them is actually they were really nice to our faces, but when it came to talking to the media they were really trashy about us.
"We'd never done anything wrong, we were just running around doing our thing. We'd never purposely talk trash about anyone and we still haven't said anything about them now."
Speaking of whether 1D and The Wanted were competitive over their US success, the heartthrob added: "I don't think there's any real competition about us.
"They sing dance music. They're real lads' lads whereas we're just mischievous, which I think is different. For me, you just look at Twitter followers, which I think is a big player."
