British boy-band The Wanted have apologised for calling Christina Aguilera a bitch, after they met the singer at talent show “The Voice”.
In April, the group — consisting of members Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes and Jay McGuinness — got in a heated feud with “The Voice” coach after Parker referred to her as “a total bitch” when they met her on the NBC talent show.
“She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch,” he told New York radio station Now FM. “She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.”
“She was quite rude,” Kaneswaran added. “Who does that?”
But nowadays, the guys regret lashing out on Aguilera and say there has been plenty of hate mail sent their way since they spoke their mind.
“Oh, yes!” George told The Huffington Post exclusively when asked if they faced any blowback following their comments. “I think there was total backlash,” Parker, who issued an apology shortly after the controversy, added.
“I watched an interview with her on “Chelsea Lately” the other night and she came across really, really nice so I was a bit like, ‘Oh shit!'” he continued. “Maybe she was she just having a bad day.”
“He was, so…” George chimed in, revealing Parker was a bit under the weather the day he blabbed about Aguilera’s attitude.
“Yeah, I was having a terrible day,” Parker confessed to HuffPost. “I was on my period … oh shoot, sorry I apologize!”
