Who’s Going To Be The Lance Bass Of British Boy Band The Wanted?

I’m not saying one of the members of British boy band The Wanted — comprised of Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker, and Nathan Sykes — absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt is going to be the next Lance Bass or Ricky Martin. I’m just saying, statistically, it’s plausible. And musically? As this brand new Nigel Dick-directed music video for “Lose My Mind” shows, The Wanted is already suffering from “chasing pretty ladies around, then staring emotively into the camera” syndrome. And we all know how that ends up.

Or rather, how it begins: with a Gay Times photo spread.

UPDATE: A reader points us to another Gay Times photo shoot with a British boy band. This one features The Reason, and it just as homoerotic. Quick, somebody find the family member.

    At this point, a better question might be which one WON’T be the Lance Bass of the group.

    @REBELComx: ya’think?

  • Aceonthedraw

    What a snide article – sure, one or more of The Wanted might be gay, but you’ve phrased the text in such a negative tone that I’m left with the impression that there’re a bunch of shits.

  • Paschal

    Siva Kaneswaran is Irish so it’s and British-Irish group.

  • Red Meat

    Just as I was sure all the boys in backstreet boys were straight, these here are all gay.

  • BrooklynBorn

    Paschal : U.S. gay blogs are so anti-Irish that Towleroad once tried to call Westlife a British band !!

  • BrooklynBorn

    P.S. The hottest one in the band is the curly-haired McGuiness. Born in England, but (at least partly) of Irish descent, obviously.

  • Richie

    Wow…only 1 of those guys is cute.

  • Cam

    To all the folks freaking out…not knowing that somebody is from Ireland is not being “ANTI-Irish” so take a pill.

    As for the band, definitly a better question would be which one is straight.

  • BrooklynBorn

    Of course, Cam. Only being anti-Irish is anti-Irish. In that case, though, Towleroad trying to claim Westlife as a British band (when they surely knew better) was just one amusing tidbit of their more serious previous anti-Irish agenda.

  • Tom

    What is E.T. doing in a boy band now?

  • Hilarious

    @Cam: There’s a straight one?

  • Corvidae

    McFly also did a gay mag – it’s fanservice. They know gays buy their records, and not for their musical brilliance.

  • anon

    shut the fuck up? none of them are gay. sick people.nothing wrong with being gay anyway.arse wipes.
