Radio 5 - Completely Out Of Order...

today this was recorded and posted online

Radio 5 decided to "review" The Wanted's Single 'Gold Forever' which is the Official Charity Single For Comic Relief 2011

Now as a member of the #TWFanmily (look it up if you don't know what this means haha!) I may be slightly biased, but even so I think many people will agree that this review was harsh, rude, and extremely uncalled for.

If you don't like a song, then fine, as Jay states "you cant make music that pleases everyone and hopefully it pleases some people" and this song pleases a LOT of people. this review however, does not please ANYONE. if you don't like certain music, that's your choice, everyone likes different things, but if you're going to review music live on air, you have to be diplomatic, and give VALID reasons as to why you didn't like it, not just "I didn't like it, but the intent was good, it might sell because of that.." May I remind readers which single got to Number 2 in the charts a few hours after it was released on Sunday?! GOLD FOREVER!

The woman then goes on to say "they're more A1 than Take That" you can't compare A1 to Take That!? they're completely different! and A1 were amazing in the 90's and they're still together, Take That were the first real boyband, so of course they've done well..but this is completely invalid. She then has the cheek to say it sounds like everything else they've done?! Has she even LISTENED to The Wanted? NONE of the songs sound anything alike...they are all different in their own amazing ways...these critics are clearly deaf..

The worst critic was the last man to speak who says "Its not memorable enough, it's easily forgotten.." WHAT!? this song is catchy, up to date, upbeat, and the lyrics speak to you, they uplift, and make you feel good about life, and personally make me remember the good times in my life, (such as being lucky enough to have MET The Wanted myself...)

I don't know what these three people are on about, but if you've got the balls to say bad about a Comic Relief single, then you clearly need your head checked...and this video will not go down well with the #TWfanmily...I feel a storm brewing...a fanmily storm...all hell is about to break loose on radio 5...

Dougie Poynter In Rehab

before I start, for those of you who don't know who Dougie Poynter is, hes the bassist/vocalist for a band called McFly
I want to explain exactly how i feel about Dougie Poynter being in rehab and all the commotion over it #weloveyoudougie
when I heard the news that dougie WAS in fact in rehab..

of course my first reaction was WHAT?!

I mean when you think of people who would go into Rehab, Dougie wouldn’t even be on the list! so of course it came as a massive shock…
The reasoning has been said that this is due to him not dealing with his break-up with The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford (although in my personal opinion this should never have happened - not because im jealous like some mcflyers were- because shes not a nice person, and she treat him pretty badly from stuff ive seen - though of course not knowing them personally i don’t know the full story)
this was weird to me because as far as anyone knew they had broken up months ago, so either this has been building up to a point where hes exploded with emotion, or theyd gotten back together (more likely the first one)
when the news got out everyone was of course upset and spreading the love for dougie all over the world, online and off, twitter, youtube, tumblr, facebook & more! and this was great support from the McFlyers & Pioneers…at first.
now its starting to get a little silly.. 
people are CRYING over it, spamming the internet with upset/rage about it…yes i’m upset that Dougie is in rehab, but i think a few people are forgetting whats actually happened…and thinking a lot worse in their heads..people see REHAB and think the worst..
Dougie checked HIMSELF into The Priory because he was/is depressed about his split, he has done this & moved the 1st 3 days of the tour, so that he can be happy again FOR HIS FANS so as not to let them down for the tour, and also be happier in himself. he needs some space away from the media and craziness that is his life to clear his head and get away from it all, something that is very hard to do when you are famous... From what the boys have said, hes doing well, and getting better, and what people need to remember at the end of the day, he WILL get better, hes just depressed (i can say that because ive been there myself, depression is an awful thing, but u do recover from it), and when i say hes JUST depressed i dont mean it as a throwaway thing, but people are tweeting/online blogging like hes DYING, or has a terminal illness or something, people go into rehab every single day for depression and noone pays them any cares, suddenly Dougie goes in and all hell breaks loose!
I’m not saying don’t support Dougie, not at all, Dougie is my favourite McFlyer and always will have a special place in my heart, but what he needs right now, is positive thinking, and well wishers, not people crying and getting upset, I’m sure he’s done enough of that on his own.
I hope you can understand what I’ve said, and get my point of view, I mean this in the best possible way, but i really needed to get this out, and i feel now i have
Thank You For Reading :)

My Greatest Memory So Far...

it’s only a short memory, but my god what a memory to have…
Let me take you back to the Festival Too, in King’s Lynn, #SivaSaturday 10th July 2010….
I wanted to go to the free Festival my local hometown has every year, on the last night, they always get a couple of really good celebrities in, i wasnt paying much attention this year, as i had been away at University, so hadn’t heard much about who was performing, but my friend said it was a Take That tribute band, and Lemar, so naturally i wanted to go..
Being in a wheelchair in this case was a massive advantage, I’m not one to play the wheelchair card, but wheelchair users and a +1 get to sit in front of the audience fences for a better view, and we managed to get right in the middle! SCORE!
Take That 2 came on, were very good, and then they started playing music while setting up mics and stuff for what i THOUGHT was gonna be Lemar, and then the DJ/MC came on and said now its time for THE WANTED!!! and i was like oh i love All Time Low (thinking it was the dj playing it..) I look up at the stage and OMFG 5 gorgeous men jump on stage singing ‘Lets Get Ugly’!!!! I’m not gonna lie, I screamed like a little schoolgirl! (my friend Emily is a witness to this xD) and i was dancing and singing through 5 whole songs! it was amazing, and they all waved to me!
but it gets better yet!
they came off stage and everyone ran to the fences but the bodyguards were having none of it, being in front of the fences i nicely asked one of the people who worked there if i could meet the band, and they said theyd ask and they said YES! I WAS THE ONLY PERSON TO MEET THEM! :O they all came over one by one giving me a hug and a kiss, and Siva (bless his heart) introduced himself and I (stupidly) went ‘I Know Who You Are *giggles*’ smooth Aimee. then Jay came over and said ‘hey i saw you dancing, you’re a right mover!’ haha yeaaaaah! and then we all had a picture and it was beautiful, i said thank you and went back to my seat, as they had to leave…just typing this is making my heart melt.
You may be asking, why are you telling me this? I’m telling you because ive realised recently, that memories start to fade, and this is a reminder for me how great that day truly was, and unexpected (id have dressed better if id known! xD) and that great things can happen to good people, and that i think of that day every single day of my life, and its a memory i refuse to let fade…
I <3 The Wanted…thank you for creating the best moment in the world for me…
So many good The Wanted related things have happened to me since too! (i won max’s scarf, i went to the milk gig, ive been tweeted by @Thewantedmusic (who are also following me for winning the scarf!) @jaythewanted (but i didnt save it and now its gone forever) and @sivathewanted has tweeted me a few times! eep! still waiting for Max, Tom & Nathan, but i have faith!)
All My Photos from that night can be found in this album - I started it from The Wanted Pictures (there’s a beauty of Max looking and waving right at me!)
I was also lucky enough to go to the Make Mine Milk gig, and I didn’t get to meet them, but Jayne (their manager) took the photo of us I was hoping to get them to sign for me, and sent it back to me signed! I will forever be in Jaynes debt for this!
