Shiva Kaneswaran - The Wanted are 'too extreme'

Siva Kaneswaran admits The Wanted have been '' too extreme'' with the things they have said in the past.

The 'All Time Low' singer insists the band - who have an ongoing rivalry with One Direction - will always be opinionated but hopes fans will see past this and recognise their musical talents.

He told Glamour magazine: ''Our fans know us as being honest, so we give them an honest opinion. Some things [we've said] in the past have been a bit too extreme, but as long as people take us - and excuse all the naughty things we say - and focus on our music, I couldn't care.''

The 24-year-old - who recently filmed reality series 'The Wanted Life' with bandmates, Max George, Jay McGuiness, Nathan Sykes and Tom Parker - claims their outlandish opinions often help their fans to understand who they really are.

He continued: ''The fans should know who their idols really are - the positives and the negatives. To be glossy, to be fake, I don't think it's good for the fans, because they buy into the person. They should buy into the truth, a role model you can trust. I think at heart we're good people.''

The group previously branded Christina Aguilera a ''total b***h'' after she snubbed them during their appearance on 'The Voice US' and have previously challenged rival British boy band One Direction to a fist fight in order to settle their feud, as well as various members clashing on Twitter.
