Backstreet Boy AJ McLean On Teaching Himself To Walk In Heels

“I can walk in heels. I was a little wobbly at first. I was like a baby calf, but then I figured it out. I don’t see how women walk heel to toe in friggin’ heels, so, for me, I walk toe to heel. It’s weird. I walk like a stork, but at least I’m not falling down.”

My #1 top favorite Backstreet Boy AJ McLean discusses his penchant for cross-dressing in a weird, wonderful interview with PrideSource. In addition to enlightening us on his high heel walking techniques, AJ discusses his love for the band’s gay fanbase — “If we did a full arena with the LGBT community, I bet you they’d be louder” — and the decision to celebrate marriage equality in the video for their latest single, “In A World Like This.” Another fun tidbit: apparently the only thing holding him back from doing a music video as a drag queen is that famously groomed goatee. “I got a thing with my facial hair,” he says. “I don’t like to shave.” [Oh No They Didn’t]
