While we recently discovered that Justin Bieber won't be appearing on The Wanted's new album as rumored, it turns out that he has made quite an impression on the boy band — particularly Max George.
"I've met Justin and he's a lovely lad and people make the wrong opinions of him," Max recently told TMZ when asked to comment on some of the pop star's recent bad behavior.
Bandmate Nathan Sykes is also a fan. "The one thing that’s great about Justin Bieber is he's really focused," he has said. "No matter the amount that’s happened in his life he knows exactly where he wants to be and I respect that."
Are you surprised that The Wanted would come to Justin's defense? Sound off below!
