The ladies may love The Wanted, but the British boy band aren’t digging some of the gifts they find from their adoring female fans.
Tom Parker — who shot to fame with the group’s hit “Glad You Came” last year — told Celebuzz at the 2013 People Choice Awards that someone once hurled a used tampon at him during a concert.
When asked about his craziest fan experience, Parker simply quipped, “[I found] a bloody tampon onstage.”
Luckily, Parker and his bandmates – Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran — got a much better present at Wednesday night’s award ceremony, taking home the Favorite Breakout Artist award.
“We’ve never won an award before,” Parker said to us on the red carpet before nabbing the title. “Fingers crossed!”
“This never happens to us,” George told the crowd during the acceptance speech. “We’ve never won anything before … We never expected this at all.”
The boys also performed an impromptu acapella version of the Starland Vocal Band’s hit “Afternoon Delight,” which they had promised talk show host Ellen DeGeneres they perform if they were to win that night.
