Zac Efron’s got some serious competition in the popularity department — when it comes to Instagram!
While chatting with X Factor’s Emblem 3, member Wesley Stromberg admits just how famous the group’s becoming.
“I literally posted a photo two days ago on Instagram and got 22,000 ‘likes’ on it!” he tells Life & Style, adding, “It’s insane. I had more likes on a photo than Zac Efron. I couldn’t believe it…and that guy has been around for years. We have been here for a month.”
But unlike Emblem 3, Zac’s not too keen on the whole “heartthrob status.”
“I can’t explain to you what it’s like to be a heartthrob,” Zac’s said. “I don’t think I am a heartthrob. I hate it. It follows you around, but you don’t deserve it.”
On last night’s X Factor, the group, which consists of Drew Chadwick, 20, Wesley, 18, and his younger brother Keaton, 17, performed Alicia Keys’ “No One” — and by the sound of the crowd and judges — especially Britney Spears who called them heartthrobs — their performance did not disappoint.
“We’re really good at interacting with the crowd that’s there, in front of us, and vibing with the judges and the audience,” Drew says. “We’re having fun. It’s natural, real energy that everyone’s sharing.”
