While you’re busy figuring out which one of them is the Lance Bass of the group, British boy band The Wanted is out with “Gold Forever.” Yes, there are girls in the video. No, the boys don’t seem to want anything to do with them. And we spotted at least two friendly kisses between these young gents.

    it was so random…!?!?!

  • Red Meat

    I’m having a hard time figuring out which one is not gay. They are all dressed fabulous, none of them act all macho which is a good thing that they don’t play to that stereotype. I have to assume they are all gay unless otherwise proven. The video was horrible, all the back dancers were giggling and showing off some horrid dance movies.

  • Teeson

    Cute boys. They’re all gay. Terrible song though.

  • Steve-O

    their purposilly being silly its part of Red Noise Day Comic Relief in the UK….it an annual thing.

  • Garj

    Buzz cut guy is the hottest

  • tarxien

    Red Nose Day. Collecting money for children’s charities

  • Tommy Marx

    @Garj: Holy shit is hot!!!

  • Tommy Marx

    @Garj: Holy shit is he hot!!!

  • Karl of Themyscira....the indescribable lightness of being Wonder Womans number one fan.

    They are all totally hot.
    especially the lead singer who all the stupid girls fancy.

  • DJ

    I definitely think the one in the vest is gay. But they could all be gay. But then again, it’s more acceptable for men to be effeminate in UK.

  • Molly

    Basically the only people that will fully understand this video is the #twfanmily! tom and max arn’t gay, they have a very close bromance and arnt afraid to show it! they have always been like this, to understand you’d have to watch the wanted wednesday flips on youtube.

    the #twfanmily new something would come about this.

  • jason

    It’s good to see the Brits being progressive on these things. Sadly, the American music industry is exceedingly homophobic towards male-male sexuality. It would not allow this sort of video from an American boy band.

  • Van

    It’s a trick question… They’re all gay.

  • Lolli

    I dont care what you say they are not gay, its supposed to be a silly video to raise money for comic relief at least they did something

  • Sophie

    1) those two members actually have girlfriends, they are just very close friends who aren’t afraid to show it
    2) i highly doubt any of them are actually gay
    3) it’s an AMAZING song with an AMAZING music video that helped raise money for an AMAZING charity

  • Sophie

    @DJ: the one in the vest is getting married to michelle keegan and the other lad has a girlfriend..i really don’t think any of them are actually gay

  • DJ Mikey

    @Sophie:

    Statistically 1 of them is bound to be gay. List of Gay Boy-Band Members to follow:

    New Kids On The Block – Johnathan Knight
    Boyzone – Stephen Gately
    Westlife – Mark Feehily
    NSYNC – Lance Bass
    Backstreet Boys – Howie Dorough
    Blue – Duncan James (Bisexual, but close enough to count)
    Phixx – Andrew Kinlochan (Only gay boy-band member, who was openly gay for the entire duration of the band’s life span)

    JLS, The Wanted and a horde of other Boy Bands – complain that they’re not gay and protest if rumours surface. But I don’t think that equals hetero status, it simply equals concern for their careers.

    Like the gay members listed, the gay members of these bands will eventually come forward. They just won’t do it until their career ending. The second that retirement becomes inevitable or the spotlight starts to wain, the gay member will come out before anybody can blink!!

  • youallsuck

    thank you sophie!!!

  • jason

    Please, not another British boy band. No wonder British music is in such a sorry state.

  • LondonBoy

    They all look pretty gay in the Glad you came video. Trying to do sexy scenes with females but all looking terribly bad and unnatural at it.

    Especially the puny one and the botox lip job face one

  • Natasha

    FUCK YOU JASON KEEP UR SHITTY COMMENTS TO UR BLODDY SELF ABT THE WANTED AND BRITISH MUSIC UR SUCH A FUCCKER U KNOW THAT AND IF U DNT LEARN THAT ABOUT YOURSELF BITCH!

  • Tom

    They just partied at Splash in NY after their first US concert. It’s a gay bar.

  • MikeE

    @Sophie: ROFL

    I am SO sick of autotune being used in pop music. It only serves to show that the singers can’t hold a tune.

    As for “boy band”, well, yeah, they’re a bunch of young guys.. so technically, pretty much “boys”.

    But a “band”? They don’t even sing in harmony! Even less play any instruments.
    This is glorified titillation for teenaged girls.

    Basically, it sucks.

  • MiaLOVES

    FIRST OF ALL: The WANTED are the best band ever…
    AND they aren´t a typically boy band.
    They don´t really care about rules,drink beer AND HAVE GIRLFRIENDS.
    Max will marry british soap star Michelle Keegan,
    Siva has a long-term girlfriend called Naaresha
    and Tom´s girlfriend is kalled Kelsey Hardwick,SO WHAT?

    and @MikeE THEY ARE PLAYING instruments!!!

    Nathan can play the piano-VERY GOOD
    Tom and Siva are playing the guitar since AGES
    and Max can play the guitar,too
    Jay is a very good dancer

    and Nathan was even on a prestigious music academy!!!
    And I think they aren´t really on a teenager-level
    I think you don´t know,but they were nominated for a british music award!!!
    I have no real idea why you are against TW, except you’re just jealous;)

  • Beth

    @Red Meat: Hello. Max is engaged to Michelle Keegan aka Tina from Corrie. Tom and Siva are also in long term relationships with girls :D Just cos they don’t go round beating people up, does not mean they are gay okay?

  • The Wanted Fan

    They are NOT gay, Max (kinda bald one) is gettig married to a soap star called Michelle Keegan, Tom (the one that dances like a chicken in Gold Forever) has a beautiful girlfriend called Kelsey Hardwick, and Siva (the one with the HUGE cheekbones) has got a long time girlfriend called Nareesha. As for Jay and Nathan; Nathan doesnt have a girlfriend because the group lost so many fans when he was linked to Cher Lloyd; and Jay has said in interviews; he hasnt founf the right girl yet. They are so close to the fanbase (TWFanmily) they would have told us. And as for them having no talent; there manager Jayne Collins knows what she is doing; she knows what the music industry needs. Let be honest; they wouldnt have risen so high selling out in NEW YORK if they had no talent. So before you start running your fingers like keyboard worriers; think what your going to say before you say it. TWFanmily are a VERY powerful fanbase; we stick by the boys through EVERYTHING. good or bad. we are proud. so with that.. Thankyou & Godnight. Muchos Love.

  • Nate

    Y’all are ridiculous about this, It’s true there is probably a gay member undoubtedly, but really argue about which one or which ones not? First of all, marriage or a relationship to/with a woman means nothing people… look at how many men have wives or girlfriends and still get with men or leave them for men… second off @DJ Mikey, You’re right they probably won’t surface until later in their careers because it is a “safety” move; HOWEVER, homosexual or heterosexual who the hell cares?!? They are a band, they sing good music and they are attractive, Teen age girls, stop your whinning because its clear none of you will ever be close enough to them that it will even matter if they are gay or straight so gay/straight/bi look and drool away. We’ve all got opinions but in the end… IT DOESN’T EVEN MATTER. LOFL!!

  • Sarah

    @MikeE:
    Actually Nathan plays keys/piano I know two of the play guitar and I think one plays drums…. Look at warzone and the sexy Nathan play piano. None of them are gay…… Fans are just saying that so they can tell them selfs that they’re pretty and that the only reason no boy would date them is because they are gay.

  • wanted in my bedroom

    I hope they are all gay..they are so refreshing to look at especially Tom/Max I would empty my life savings to see them go at it.

  • jason

    The Wanted is your typical moronic British boy band. They are marketed as heterosexuals. The Brits are idiots and this proves it.

  • Anna

    @Teeson: WHATS WRONG WITH YOU ITS AN AMAZING SONG AND THEIR SILLY DANCES ARE ADORABLE…..

  • ItsBuddyBitch

    @youallsuck: I am gay, and i hope one at least one of them is gay, they are to cute to all be straight. I’m sure they arent all gay, and i know they probably don’t choose what they where in their videos, but a boy can dream right? ALSO IF USING ALL CAPS AND CALLING ME GAY MAKES YOU FEAL BETTER FINE.

    P.S. Present it, I’ll suck it any day of the week.

  • ItsBuddyBitch

    @youallsuck: P.P.S its a gay website, what are you doing here?

  • Revie

    @youallsuck:

    why would it be bad if one or more of them are gay? to be honest, i think Siva is gay just seeing him in a few behind the scenes and interviews he’s just softer than the other boys.
    people who are extremely homophobic tend to be gay; however, they suppress it and lash out at others. there have been studies.

  • Sylvester

    In this day and age you would think it didn’t matter. They are a fun, hip aspiring band, that is appealing to any sex.
    There music is not any different that what is out there and as it is always said if they don’t suit your musical interest there are thousands out there that will what their sexual preference may be should not over shadow their talent!

  • Chloe

    this is stupid tomax arent gay, thats jaythan..

  • abbie

  • Hannah

    They’re messing around on purpose; it was for children in need. And no, none of them are gay – tom, max and siva all have girl friends so don’t just assume things.

  • Cari

    @Molly:

  • Cari

    I really couldn’t care less if they’re gay or not. Their sexuality doesn’t change the fact that they’re all rude, untalented charlatans.

  • Taylor

    @MikeE: @Molly: thank u!! someone finally understands and dosent trash such an amazing band. dont care what the others say. twfanmily :) god i hate when people make fun of the wanted they are the best band ever and i dont care what anyone says cuz i will not listen to any bs. i love them and no one can change that. they are not like a typical autotuned boy band and they all sing in harmony amazingly so dont go there. their songs are amazing and they have awesome personalities. twfanmily

  • Casey

    I can tell you all one thing……they Wanted boys are not gay. People have got to stop saying things like this about them. Its not true. All 5 boys are straight, hot guys. And if they were gay don’t you think they wouldn’t have done two music video’s with girls. No wait sorry…3 music videos with girls. They done Lightning, Glad You Came and Chasing the Sun and each of those videos had girls in them. If you don’t believe me look em up on youtube! Now all these rumors gotta stop. THE BOYS ARE NOT GAY!!

  • leila

    They all suck anyways, one direction are more attractive, more talented and more famous then they’ll ever be!! and yess they are all gayy in my opinion, or else why would they dress like gay strippers

OH BTW I’M BI AND WHO CARES I HAVE MY LIFE AND IT’S A GREAT LIFE!!!

  • hihihi3477

    None of the members of The Wanted are gay, they did that music video for charity and were just being silly. They already confirmed that none of them are gay. They’ve all banged girls and had girlfriends. Stop spreading rumors, just because they are in a boy band doesnt mean any of them are gay.
