Is this an olive branch being extended by the Wanted to Christina Aguilera? Could be! Days after the U.K. boy band referred to the singer as a “b—-,” singer Tom Parker semi-apologized for what he and his mates said about Xtina during a radio interview. Notice we said “semi” since it’s not a straight up apology.

Parker chatted with TMZ outside of L.A.’s Mondrian hotel on Sunday (April 29), backpedalling about the groups comments, saying, “We shouldn’t have said it, to be honest with you. We just think manners cost nothing, you know what I mean?”

So he basically said that the band should not have responded to Xtina’s snub by calling her a nasty name in a public forum, but that they are disappointed in her manners. Or lackthereof. Perhaps this was putting out the fire and preventing the feud before it escalated.
