Singer Jay McGuiness told Closer magazine: "It's surprising – we thought America would hate us."We don't wear amazing clothes and we're quite uncensored in interviews, but they seem to like that."It's a relief because we'd have to polish our look.
Thankfully there will be no American makeover for the Wanted."The group – also comprising Max George, Tom Parker, Nathan Sykes and Siva Kaneswaran – are also excited at the prospect of signing a deal with Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun.Jay added: "Nothing's been signed, but we think he'd be the perfect manager and he's really keen to work with us.
"We have a very different image from Justin – but he's probably the most famous and richest teen in the world, so we wouldn't mind being in a boy band version of that!"While Jay wouldn't turn down a collaboration with Justin, he'd prefer to work with a British act.Asked about working with Justin, he said: "I wouldn't say no, but, as a lad I'd prefer to duet with a really hot female."I love Jessie J. In fact, there are loads of talented Brits I'd love to work with, I'm very proud
