They took the opportunity to say that The Wanted are the coolest band in the world, to expect a collaboration with The Wanted, that I Found You is much better than that Glad You Came song, and that The Wanted have massive... egos. Fair enough.

Oh boys. Now how about you both calm down, come over to Sugarscape with your massive “egos” and we’ll find a way for us all to be friends?

We sounded like pervy old men just then. Apologies.
