We all know of the insult heard around the world — when British boy band The Wanted dissed pop star Britney Spears.

At the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, the group cleared up the insult to OK! with Tom Parker saying, "You know what? The whole Britney thing got really blown up. Siva Kaneswaran said it as a bit of a joke, like that’s what actually what happened when we were walking through the corridor."

"It wasn’t actually her, it was her security guy that was like 'FACE THE WALL.' Yeah, we’ve met Britney twice before – such a sweet, sweet girl, and great music."

The group even supports her as the new judge on The X Factor.

"I’m very excited for her to be the X Factor judge," Nathan Sykes said. "Her and Demi Lovato; great pairing. Two beautiful girls right there."

"I think the two new judges are gonna bring a really good guidance to younger musicians and contestants because Britney was that way when she was younger," he added, "so it’s gonna be interesting how they coach through the stages."
