We're eagerly awaiting The Wanted’s new show “The Wanted Life,” premiering Sunday, June 2 at 10/9c on E! Aren't you too? In the meantime, the boys have released their “Walks Like Rihanna” music video.
If some of the scenes look eerily familiar, that’s because it's a boy band spoof-a-rama. The Wanted might be mocking boy bands like *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, but you can “mock” 'em all by signing up for charities that the bands support.
+ Watch The Wanted "Walks Like Rihanna."
+ The Wanted
We know you’re always hungry for more music from The Wanted, but the boys took on actual hunger by getting involved with Enough Food for Everyone's IF campaign. They asked their fans to help them out on this endeavor, and Tweeted a vid explaining what it was all about. They’ve also turned to their fans to ask them to save companion animals’ lives through adoption and to give Twitter love and support to Ruby, a little girl with a brain tumor.
Back in the day *NSYNC created their Challenge For Children Foundation kids’ charity, and while the band may no longer be together (*cries*), the individual guys are still out and about helping. “Suit and Tie” singer Justin Timberlake stands up to cancer and brings autism awareness. Bass singer Lance Bass is big on LGBT rights, and Joey Fatone has started the Fatone Family Foundation to help the lil ones.
+ Backstreet Boys
Backstreet’s back, all right! The boys are currently on tour, but their busy schedules don’t keep them away from kind deeds. Recently they got involved with Hilarity For Charity by performing to support Alzheimer's awareness. They’re also known for hooking up with Tickets-For-Charity to have portions of their tix sales go to important things, like fighting breast cancer.
