Kasabian's Tom Meighan has blasted One Direction as "five little d***s" and admitted he is jealous they have cracked the US market before his own band

Kasabian's Tom Meighan has blasted One Direction as "five little d***s".

The frontman is jealous that the boy band - who were formed on the 'X Factor' - have managed to crack the lucrative US market before he and his band and called the situation "horrific".

He told Gigwise: "It's frustrating when you see five little d*cks like that take over America, it's horrific but you've just got to get on with it. They're a boy band for God's sake and there will always be room for boybands. They're kids. Let them eat the candy."

Kasabian have recently undertaken an eight-week tour of the US and Tom revealed it was physically demanding but it will take a lot more work for them to enjoy the same success as One Direction's Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malick and Louis Tomlinson.

He added: "We went to America and it was a harsh f***ing tour we did. We did nearly eight weeks out there and it was f***ing gruelling. It was the hardest we've ever been pushed. We did well, we won the war on terror on that one. We've got to keep going back and back."

He didn't say this about One Direction. Check out the original quote from the FULL INTERVIEW at Gigwise where, after prompting from the interviewer, Tom makes a comment that could have equally applied to The Wanted but is contextually about boybands in general. And I don't care if I have to do it a million times, I am going to make this comment whenever I see this story repeated because I am sick to death of sloppy journalists trying to make Tom look like he's picking a fight.
