Did you feel a subtle but undeniable shift in the balance of the universe last night? We all did. That’s because approximately 9 hours ago, Backstreet Boy AJ McLean took to Instagram to issue a challenge to the king of undressed selfies, James Franco. He posted the photo above, along with the following message: Keep reading »

Spice Girls In Talks To Tour With The Backstreet Boys

Be Still, My ’90s Fangirl Heart: Backstreet Boys Announce North American Tour With Avril Lavigne

Backstreet Boys Announce Tour With Avril Lavigne

Any day that the Backstreet Boys announce a new tour is a great day, but when they announce a North American tour to support one of their best albums ever, with Avril fucking Lavigne as a special guest, well, today just became the best day of my life. As awesome as the Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block tour was, my inner child (who is actually my inner teen, forever trapped in 1998, listening to “Complicated” on repeat, wishing she could fit into L.E.I. flare jeans) is way more stoked about this one. Tickets go on sale March 21st, and the tour kicks off in Canada on May 3rd, with the first American stop in Seattle on May 22nd. So far I’m not seeing any dates in Nashville, which is severely disappointing, but I guess that means a road trip to Chicago is in order. Check out the list of US tour dates after the jump!

AJ McLean crossdresser

“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]

Backstreet Boys Perform New Song On “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Sound Like Angels

Backstreet Boys On Jimmy Kimmel Live
Watch BSB sing "Show 'Em What You're Made Of"!

Last month I gave you my second-by-second reaction to the Backstreet Boy’s first single from their new album, In A World Like This. Yesterday, I told you that the whole album, which was released this week, is completely awesome, and wholly unlike any of their previous efforts (I’ve had it on repeat for two full days now). Just in case you’re still not convinced, check out BSB’s performance of their new song “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of” (written by AJ and Kevin!) on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Their harmonies in the chorus are unreal. As is AJ’s beard. [YouTube via Idolator]

Teen sorta sensation Aaron Carter, perhaps best known as little brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is now 25 and touring the country on his “After Party” tour. On a stop in Boston, Carter claims he was jumped and beaten by four men, and he posted a couple Instagram photos of himself looking busted to prove it. What sparked the altercation? According to Carter, it was a classic boy band turf war. Seriously. Keep reading »

Remember when Ryan Gosling said he wanted to join the Backstreet Boys, and it was like a mutual wet dream for Amelia and me? Now my beloved BSB — currently touring in China — have gone and posed with five adorable pandas, which happen to be Jessica’s #1 top favorite animal ever. Are the Backstreet Boys trying to kill off the entire Frisky staff with cuteness-induced heart attacks? Ami, Julie, Rachel, Megan — watch out! [NYMag.com]

Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new boy band emerges and then fades into obscurity just as quickly. So what’s the secret to BSB’s longevity? Well, besides being genuinely talented, charismatic, and appreciative of their fans, I’ve put together a list of 10 other reasons they’ve been around so long, illustrated by GIFs, obviously. Up-and-coming boy bands might want to take notes… Keep reading »

Better late than never, right?

I know we’re all totally sick of Harlem Shake videos, but this one includes the Backstreet Boys doing pelvic thrusts while dressed as Spider-Man, Boba Fett, and a giant bunny, among other things. I couldn’t not post it. [YouTube]
