There might be some big time backlash coming their way

They are a confident bunch of lads, but it seems that Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Logan Henderson of Big Time Rush are now obviously feeling comfortable enough to start saying they think they’re sexier than One Direction.

Big Time Rush think they're sexier than One Direction

Speaking to Heatworld, they explained what happened when they first met Niall, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Harry and how it was a bit awkward.

Are they trying to make all of the One Direction fans hate them or something?

They recalled: “It was nice to meet them in LA two weeks ago but when we met them we were going a Nickelodeon promotion, so it was kind of like awkward and we were trying to meet these guys and there were Nickelodeon cameras. We had to be Nickelodeon friendly.”

However, they also said they loved the British sense of humour, which made us like them again: “We found out quickly that they had the same sense of humour and we’re gonna have a great time on tour. We love the British sense of humour; I think it’s a little bit dirtier than the American. It’s too PC in America.”

But then they went and said: “They are very Topshop. We wear Armani, more dark and cool and sexy. I think it varies but sometimes we wear tanks and shorts.”

So there you have it. Possibly Big Time Rush’s first mistake, saying they are sexier than One Direction while in the UK. Tread carefully boys.
