The Wanted Drop Their Pants For We Love Pop Magazine (PHOTO)

The Wanted drop trou (!!!!!!11!) for We Love Pop magazine.

We’ve been crying ourselves to sleep ever since Brit-pop boy band sensation The Wanted didn’t make good on their promise to go naked onstage at the 2012 MTV VMAs. (We’re talking full-on fetal position wailing¬†here.) Plus we’re STILL having minor meltdown/flashbacks over that shirtless Facebook photo of Tom Parker’s. So you can imagine how stoked we were to learn that these boys will basically use any excuse to take their clothes off, most recently on the September/October cover of British mag, We Love Pop. So, we’ve dried our eyes, taken deep, cleansing breaths, and WE’RE. NOT. COMPLAINING. (Only staring.)

Check out more of The Wanted with their pants down after the jump.

Taking after The Backstreet Boys’ Rolling Stone cover circa 2000 (what, you thought we didn’t remember??), the “Glad You Came” singers recently went pantsless for the pop magazine’s cover, where they’re seen wearing a wide variety of underthings: Max George (aka master of the angry smize) looks rather debonair in a pair of tight, black briefs (we like), Jay McGuiness rocks some jokey/colorful skivvies, Nathan Sykes keeps it simple in a blue-and-white set, and Tom Parker leaves a lot to the imagination in a pair of gigantic boxer shorts (what, was it laundry day?). But it’s OK — we can all sleep soundly at night knowing that The Wanted will always look AMAZING in suits, no matter what their choice of undergarment.

Yes, Tom and Nathan, we know what you’re pointing at.
