Backstreet Boys Attempt to Become Relevant Again

October 9th, 2007 // 17 Comments

The Backstreet Boys are really more like the Backstreet Men these days, with Nick Carter, the baby of the bunch, fast approaching thirty. Yikes. And with the boys/men set to release a new album “Unbreakable” at the end of the month, they’re hoping they can pull off a comeback.

“I think unfortunately we just got – kind of got categorized…I think there was a time period where people, like, didn’t want to say they liked us,” Carter said. “I just think you just kind of got to get passed that whole stage and, you know, maybe people will start coming back around.”

Dang if Backstreet’s not looking rough and stuff. Apparently Nick Carter and A.J. McLean both have their torsos in the same climate, but Nick’s legs are enjoying some summer breezes in his flip-flops and long shorts. You never know when a tropical storm might suddenly break out around your knees.

    Please, again with the hating on Backstreet.

    If they are still around to do what they love and people are accepting it, why can’t assholes like you be happy for them?

    They have a hardcore fan base who has and always will support them, so do your job and find some real NEWS to write about. Because if you had been doing your job, you’d know they have been back together now for 2 years and there album release date has been set for almost a year.

    Yawn, you bore me.

    You can take the Boy out of Florida, but you can’t take Florida out of the boy. I don’t think Nick has revamped his wardrobe after his big weight loss–pants are falling off of him too!

    I just had the most bizarre upsurge of affection for these guys. I think I might actually be wishing them well (???!). Well, they always seemed pleasant enough.

    The Backstreet Boys just need to give it up. They’re such a joke and none of them are even slightly attractive.

  8. Just me

    Yeah, and I’m sure you’re some overpaid supermodel yourself, right? Give ‘em a break, you may hate them but that doesn’t mean everyone else in the world shares your opinions.

    The B.S.B’s has a huge solid fanbase across Asia alone! especially among the 1980′s babies! Brian’s & A.J’s vocals are brilliant & unique. And you can’t deny that. Their music may be sloppy to some, but I grew up with thier music. And thier songs are very nostalgic to me!!!

    Oh..and to Mr/Mrs/Ms Anonymous!

    Why does looks/attractiveness have to matter when it comes to singing music? That’s puzzlin to me! U’re just being downright bias.

    I love the Backstreet Boys and always have. It’s sick how people are hating on them for doing what they love and are brilliant at. If you hate them so much why even care?

    Wow, what a bitchy article. Hating much?? This article is nothing more than a sad pathetic attempt to top Parez Hilton’s nasty commentary on celebrities.

    BSB, keep on rocking, keeping on making music for the fans. At least you didnt sell out. They stayed true to themselves, and for that I will remain a fan for another 10 years.

    I’m glad that their coming out with a new album. They are working hard and doing what they love. Nothing wrong with that. I’m looking forward to hearing the new tracks on their album. :)

    I think people just want to rag on them because they were HUGE in the late 90′s. No group stays HUGE forever, but these guys still have a loyal fanbase that have stuck with them. I think most people expected them to be gone and over with, but they are still here. That right there says something.

    Good work guys, and best of luck to you!

  16. So what if they’re not as HUGE as they used to be? So what if they’re one man down? It’s not like u weirdos have any idea what THE BACKSTREET BOYS really means.the article sucks.u freaks r wastin ur time.if u don’t really give a damn then y bother?leave the guys alone and get a life!!!
