We figured we would have a little fun with this Fuse It or Lose it! Why not decide who’s song you like the best between a South Korean Pop Star “PSY” and a Non Boy-Band “The Wanted” from the U.K.
PSY recently released his new single “Gentleman” here in the U.S. and it has to date 295 million views on YouTube. The Wanted just released their brand new track “Walks Like Rihanna” with only 300+ views. So for your viewing and listening pleasure we have attached the videos below for your thoughts!
Simply take a listen to them and you decide who’s is better. Don’t forget to vote after you watch the videos!
The Wanted “Walks Like Rihanna”
The European girl group The Saturdays were formed in London, England in 2007. The lineup consists of Una Healy, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, and Vanessa White. They have released three albums and recently hit number one in the UK with the single “What About Us.” Products from The Saturdays have included an autobiography and a nail polish collection. They can now add reality stars to the list with Chasing the Saturdays on E!
We talked to Mollie King their blonde bombshell about the their crazy life and support of their massive gay following that is spotlighted on the show.
Jerry Nunn: Hey, Mollie. We have been trying to set this phoner up for a while so I have been really chasing a Saturday!
Mollie King: [laughs] I am sorry about that. JN: It means you are busy so I guess a good thing. MK: How are things over there?
JN: Good. I am in Chicago. Where in the world are you?
MK: I am in my hometown in Putney in London. It is nice to be home for a little bit. I want to come to Chicago. I’ve never been there so that just sounds great.
JN: You have to. How has the experience of being on American television been for you?
MK: Oh my gosh, it was amazing. It was something that we have always wanted to do. Just seeing the episodes air out there has given a great reaction. We have had tweets from American fans. It has been a dream come true to be honest.
JN: Do people tell you that you remind them of Kylie Minogue?
MK: Oh, I have never heard that one but I will definitely take it! I’m a huge fan. Thank you very much.
JN: Okay, I will be the first.
MK: I love that and I am going to tell everyone that now.
JN: Oh good. Your love life was a subject on the show. Have you found love since?
MK: No, not yet. It was so much fun just hanging out with the girls. They absolutely had a blast trying to set me up and everything. I was working a lot so there really wasn’t any time to go on any dates. It was fun just to be living in LA and getting into the lifestyle. Frankie and I actually rented cars so we really felt like we were Americans living the life.
JN: The scenes where you tried to fool people with an American accent were entertaining.
MK: Oh gosh, I kept practicing and have been practicing since I have been back but apparently I am not getting any better. Hopefully practice makes perfect.
JN: Did you ever hear anything from Bruno Mars?
MK: No, I didn’t. I am afraid not.
JN: Is the latest single “Gentleman?”
MK: Yes, that will be coming out in a few weeks time. It is so exciting, even just the plot of the video. The sound of the single is quite different for us. I look forward to people hearing that one.
JN: The Saturdays have a big gay following and played at the clubs on the reality show.
MK: Our gay fans are the best. They know every single lyric to our songs. There is a big club out here in London called G-A-Y and we taped there about two weeks ago and honestly the place just went mad. It was such a great gig. I think we did about half an hour up there. It was such a great crowd to play to.
JN: There is a gay bar here in Chicago that I want you to play at.
MK: We have to. What is it called?
JN: Roscoe’s. Your buddies The Wanted performed there in the past.
MK: Amazing! Well, we definitely need to come there.
JN: Chicago is heading into Gay Pride in June.
MK: We need to come out there. When we do a show for our gay fan base we spend the most time putting together our outfits. You have no idea. Normally we spend about a week thinking about what we are going to wear. When it is the gay audience we know we have to look great so it is fun planning all of our outfits.
JN: Just include a lot of glitter.
MK: And sparkles as well!
JN: Exactly. What has been the craziest thing a fan has asked of you?
MK: Somebody once asked me to marry them. I said, “Brilliant, I do I do!” That was quite funny. It was during a meet and greet before our show. I’m not sure if he thought I was serious but I walked back into the dressing room and told the girls that I am engaged!
JN: I don’t think you should have too much trouble in the love department. You are adorable.
MK: Thank you so much.
JN: You started with the British version of X Factor?
MK: Yes, I did.
JN: What do you think of the American version with Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato?
MK: It is such an incredible show. It is huge over here and the States. I just love watching it. They always find incredible talent by doing it. You fall in love with the judges even if they are not your favorite. You always want to hear what they have to say. I always watch it when it’s on over here.
JN: What has been the hardest part about breaking into the United States?
MK: I don’t know. It has always been our dream to cross the moat. It is such a huge place and takes a lot of work. We need to come out there and visit all the states. It is something that we are still focused on. It has been a huge help with the show. It exposes us to a massive audience that we wouldn’t have otherwise. They would have no idea of us still. We are very grateful for E! to putting us on the network. We just want to come out there and play shows now. People know us as a band and on an individual basis but we want them to hear the music now. So we are definitely planning on coming over there and playing some shows.
JN: So live shows for the rest of the year?
MK: Yes. Chasing the Saturdays actually airs in Australia, New Zealand, and all over Europe in the next couple of weeks so we will be visiting those territories as well. We have always had the American dream so fingers crossed that we will be out there as much as we can this year.
JN: Once again Chicago would love to see you.
MK: I am going to tell management right now to make that happen.

The wanted (everyone’s favorite english-irish boy band) has finally released some news regarding another album. This will be their third studio album, and I can already hear the heartbeats raging. The album’s original name was “Third Strike”, but sources are saying that’s now changed. I’m not currently ‘in the know’ of what the new name will be, but we still have a great track listing for you!
Although, not confirmed there is a rumored track listing available:
- “Chasing the Sun”
- “Loverboy” (feat. Chris Brown)
- “She Don’t Like to Party”
- “Everybody Knows”
- “Mastermind” (feat. RITA ORA)
- “I Found You”
- “Lady Lady”
- “Coming Back Strong”
- “Let Me Save You”
- “The Club’s on Fire” (feat. LMFAO)
- “In Over My Head”
- “Bring It Home” (Dappy feat. The Wanted)
- “Mad Man”
- “Have Some Fun” (Pitbull feat. The Wanted)
- “I Found You” (DC Breaks Remix)
It is scheduled for release in Spring 2013 through Island Records! Are you ready?
Ok ok calm down fanatics! Maybe it’s a little too soon for predictions but why else would The Wanted’s Max George have Lindsay meet his parents? Maybe they are not getting hitched (or dating for that matter) but TMZ reported yesterday that Lindsay Lohan and Wanted singer Max George Spent sometime in the U.K. hanging with Max’s family. Lindsay and Max have (unofficially) been seeing each other since back in November when they met at a NYC nightclub.
TMZ also said that ”while in Manchester Max and Lindsay hung with the entire George clan and Lindsay felt right at home”. Seems that Lindsay has been making a lot of time for Max and its rumored that she has been following the band for sometime now. We really hope that Max can ground Lindsay, and keep her out of trouble. In the mean time Lindsay probably should not miss anymore court dates if she wants to see more of Max without bars between them.
The Trinidad-born entertainer, Nicki Minaj, recently traveled back to her native country, where she shot footage for her upcoming video, “Pound the Alarm” (and recent add the the Fusion playlist). In a behind-the-scenes video clip, Miss Minaj got emotional by saying, “We’re … in my homeland, where I was born, we’re here baby!”
The song we all love to hate, Call Me Maybe, by Carly Rae Jepsen still tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth week in a row.
In a recent interview with lead singer, Beth Ditto of the band Gossip, was asked, ‘What is the one thing she dislikes most about her appearance.” Isn’t that pretty rude, right? Well, that didn’t matter to Beth, who happily responded, “My posture.” Keep on living the dream of great body image, Beth! We are all secretly jealous.
At the Glasgow Airport after a performance, The Wanted was spotted by a group of teenagers. One of the girls got so excited at seeing the band that she fainted. However when she fell, she hit her head on a brick wall and started having a seizure. Nathan Sykes stopped the bus and got out to make sure she was fine, despite the fact that they were late for their flight. He then put her into the recovery position while band mate Tom called an ambulance. Tom Parker helped a girl after she fainted and had a seizure. Go boys!
This weeks Top Song On Fusion Radio is Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso Ft. Ryan Tedder “Calling (Losing My Mind)” (Radio Edit).
Sebastian Ingrosso is that rare thing in the world of dance music: a musician who understands the world of melodies just as much as he understands the power of the kick drum.
Sebastian’s father owned two record labels, and from the tender age of 14 Ingrosso could be found in the studio producing music. His Music Influences include Steve Angello, Axwell, Eric Prydz, Lady Gaga and the Gorillaz to name a few. This could be where his unique understanding of music comes from along with his years of studio experience.
From the first time we heard this weeks #1 song we knew it was a hit! Keep up that great work Sebastian Ingrosso!
