When I was in 7th grade, I ordered an “All-Access Behind The Scenes BSB Experience” VHS tape from a Backstreet Boys fan club Geocities website, and it was composed mostly of footage of them eating quietly in their dressing rooms. To this day it stands as one of the best purchases I ever made, because it allowed me to brag to my friends that I knew, without a doubt, that Kevin Richardson enjoys bagels.
My 7th grade self would be freaking out today, because it’s just been announced that the Backstreet Boys are working on a feature-length documentary about their rise to stardom and massively successful 20-year career…
“With Kevin back, the fact that we are masters of our own destiny, a new album in the works and our 20th anniversary — it all adds up to being the right time to share our story,” the group said in a statement. The film will be produced by the company behind “Katy Perry: Part Of Me” and directed by Stephen Kijak, whose previous credits include “Stones In Exile” and “Scott Walker: 30 Century Man.”
I will definitely be camping out to be first in line to get my ticket to this. Anyone want to join me? I’ll bring bagels!
