One Direction - The Wanted Fans Angry Over Website Prices

The Wanted is facing a backlash from fans for demanding £100 a year to join their new fan club.

The music lovers branded Wanted World ''money-grabbing'' and a ''rip-off'' because of the prices yesterday.

For the amount, they are being offered exclusive content such as webchats, behind-the-scenes video and first listens to new tracks.

Amy Lawson, 17, from south London, tweeted: ''Wantedworld is a money-grabbing scheme and a total rip-off, and I think it's taking advantage of fans.''

Others tweeted that their British rivals One Direction and JLS give their fan club members special features free.

Megan Hogg, 17, wrote: ''The only people that'll get wantedworld will be fans young enough to beg their parents or fans old enough who have had a job for a while. It's making most fans who can't afford it feel like s***.''

Details of the site, which goes live on Thursday, were emailed yesterday to fans who paid £100 for VIP tickets to the boyband's last arena tour.

Irish fan @Alibheee_x wrote: ''I'm not paying for wantedworld, its a pisstake.''

A spokesman for the band said fans could pay £100 for platinum access, £40 for gold or use the free website.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Of course we understand that not all fans will want to or can afford the subscription offering, which is why the existing offering will continue to exist.''
