The Wanted Rebel Against US Label Alcohol Ban
The Glad You Came band aren't ready to give up their wild ways just yet...
The Wanted have confessed they are rebelling against their American record label's alcohol ban.
Max, Tom, Jay, Siva and Nathan, who are currently sitting pretty at No.5 in the US Hot 100 chart with Glad You Came, have revealed their Stateside label requested that they give up the booze, as well as coffee.
However, member Jay McGuiness has since revealed they have gone against the order by asking for beer and caffeine-based beverages in their rider.
The singer told the Daily Record: "The first gig we were playing in the States, we were told by the record company that we were not allowed to drink alcohol, consume caffeine or eat cheese or dairy.
"So we ordered a crate of beer, five four-cheese pizzas and lots of cups of coffee in our dressing room. As much as people can give us advice, they can't shoehorn us into doing things."
Max George added: "In the end, they got our humour. It took a while and a lot of stress and they told us that dealing with us was like trying to herd kittens into a bath."
Earlier this week, Jay also admitted that The Wanted's success in the States has helped him with the ladies, telling The Sun: "I slept with more girls in America in one month than I have for a whole year in the UK.
"The main difference is there are more fake boobs and girls have better dental hygiene. But I don't mind a bit of plaque and a bit of character — like Kirsten Dunst's fangs."
He concluded: "I use the others to lure in more girls and, as I'm single, they settle for me. It's a good technique and I don't mind it."
