The Wanted has a lot going on in the next few weeks. They have a new single called Walks Like Rihanna and their new series The Wanted Life is premiering on E! on June 2.
Siva Kaneswaran, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker moved to Los Angeles earlier this year to film their reality show. The trailer gives a peek into their dreams of living a pop star’s life.
While Max says in the video, “When we started, we had these dreams of success and touring the world” – Jay notes, “It’s not all fun and games.”
Max George said back in February, “We’re moving into Hollywood into a big house. We’re not actually too sure where yet… for a certain period of time doing a bit of filming, bit of fly on the wall. I feel so sorry for [the neighbors], apologies now if it is you! We’re all really excited about it. I’m not that picky when it comes to Hollywood girls. There’s something special about them.”
MTV talked to the band’s manager Scooter Braun last week. He said the series would certainly include “a lot of singing and a lot of drinking.”
Asked about Nathan Sykes’ vocal cord surgery – Braun added, “We’re worried, but he’s in recovery right now and we’re being optimistic. Our prayers go out to him and right now we don’t know. We’re just waiting to see how he reacts to the surgery. They want him back, so you know they’re calling daily and he can’t really speak. But we’re trying to keep his spirits up. And letting him know the group’s not the same without him.”
