Big Time Rush To One Direction: You Owe Us, Like, EVERYTHING
The boys from BTR joke -- we think -- about the band that once opened for them.
Simon Cowell may have discovered One Direction, but a fellow boy band says they’re responsible for the English group’s massive success -- at least, in the U.S. of A.
Maslow, along with fellow BTR members Carlos Pena Jr. and Kendall Schmidt, were in Santa Monica, Calif. for the Hall of Game Awards hosted by the Cartoon Network on Feb. 9.
“All I gotta say is that this is America,” Schmidt added with a smirk. “This is America, and we’re American. They’re still not an American boy band. We’re representing. We’re holding our own.”
“They did ask for us to go and open for them,” Pena Jr. said of returning the tour favor. “We really wanted to . . . our show shoots right now, and it kind of conflicted.”
“Maybe one day we can play again -- it’d be fun,” added Maslow.
“We wrote literally 99 percent of it, from our hands,” Schmidt revealed. “I think our fans are really going to appreciate the music they’re haring from the third album. It’s coming from us.”
