Big Time Rush are the winners in Parade magazine and Wetpaint Entertainment’s first annual Boy Band smackdown. As a result – Kendall Schmidt, 21, Logan Henderson, 22, Carlos Pena Jr., 22 and James Maslow, 22, – all appear on the cover of Sunday’s August 5th issue.
The boys – who are on tour in America right now – got more than 800,000 votes beating One Direction. In the interview they talk about what it’s like to be in Big Time Rush.
On Their Relationship: “Yeah We argue like brothers, but we love each other.”
On the band’s name: “[Nickelodeon] had Go Big Time, but we couldn’t stand it.”
On having creative control: “The second time around we were like, ‘This is our band. We should be contributing to what it is. We also decided, ‘Hey, we’re grown men. We can pick out our own shoes for the cover.’”
On giving back to their fans: “For us to even say hi to someone, to change their day around or change something inside of them—that’s a pretty cool feeling.”
