I Don’t Know How To Feel About This Rock Cover Of “Bye Bye Bye”

Our Last Night does some pretty sweet covers of popular songs like "Skyfall" and "Wrecking Ball," and their latest creation is this rock version of N*SYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" featuring Cody Carson of the band Set It Off. When you think about the lyrics, "Bye Bye Bye" is a way angrier song than Justin, Lance, JC…

O-Town Is Reuniting, But Without Ashley Parker Angel?!?!

O-Town was the by far the best boy band ever created on a reality show called "Making The Band" in the year 2000. We all enjoyed their vocal (and hair) stylings until 2003, when the band broke up, leaving the world a dark, sad, lonely place where fans could only ask, "Why? Whyyyyy?" while listening…

Be Still, My ’90s Fangirl Heart: Backstreet Boys Announce North American 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

Justin Timberlake Is Ready To Form An *NSYNC/One Direction Supergroup

"Really, can 10 of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer. We should just form some super group. It'd be hilarious. What I have seen [of One Direction], I like them. They seem grounded to me, I like that about them." -- Ex-boy-bander Justin Timberlake gave the best response…

OMG! OMG! *NSYNC Is Reuniting For A Performance At The VMAs!

Huuuuuuuuge news for those of us who have been halfheartedly cheering Justin Timberlake's rise to solo stardom while secretly yearning for JC Chasez's parachute pants, Chris Kirkpatrick's dreadlocks, Lance Bass's frosted tips, and Joey Fatone's glorious goatee: the band is getting back together. Yes, really! According to very credible sounding rumors, *NSYNC will be reuniting…

A Second-By-Second Reaction To The Backstreet Boys’ New Single, “In A World Like This”

You guys, HUGE NEWS. The Backstreet Boys released a new single from their 9th album, In A World Like This, and even the cool kids think it's good! Obviously, as a lifelong BSB fangirl, I experienced a lot of emotions while listening to it and watching the nostalgia-filled lyric video, all of which I have…

Aaron Carter Claims He Was Savagely Beaten By New Kids On The Block Fans

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…

10 Reasons The Backstreet Boys Have Lasted 20 Years (Illustrated By GIFs)

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…

Dear Ryan Gosling, Here Are 8 Reasons You Should Join The Backstreet Boys

Dear Ryan Gosling, I know that it's usually Amelia who writes you letters, but this week it's my turn, because of some major news that just emerged: apparently you tried to join the Backstreet Boys way back when they first made it big, but BSB bad boy AJ McLean (aka the #1 love of my…

9 Things I Know About The Backstreet Boys That I Don’t Know About One Direction

Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I'm like, "Wait, what is a One Direction?" This stands in stark contrast…

The New Kids On The Block Are Shirtless And Rocking Porn Star ‘Staches

Speaking of '90s musicians, Donnie Wahlberg recently tweeted this photo of the New Kids hanging out in what looks like a locker room(?!), mustached and shirtless (with the exception of Jonathan Knight, who's sporting a modest white T and bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Adrien Brody). So, what do you think of the guys' new…

Hot Links: Cheesy Celeb Endorsements & What’s A “Mindgasm”?

This gallery of retro-ish celebrity endorsements is cracking me up. Who knew N*Sync washed their frosted hair with Herbal Essenses? [theBERRY] This morning I discovered a big ol' rip in my (expensive!) Dwell sheets. I blame Lucca, who likes to burrow on my bed. Anyway, now I need new sheets and luckily Stylelist Home ha…

Lance Bass Is Killing Us (Not So) Softly

Where to start, where to start? So, this is apparently a real thing that gay-SYNCer LANCE BASS crapped out of a mansion in Florida (it's always Florida). Heart2Heart's debut track, "Facebook Official" (brand placement, guyz), starts off with one of the five flat-ironed little moggins saying, "I wanna do this in the realest way I…

Rich Cronin, Frontman Of LFO, Is Dead At 35

You may not know Rich Cronin, the frontman of the late '90s group LFO, by name—he never hit it as big as some of his fellow boy banders. But if you watch the video for LFO's biggest hit, "Summer Girls," you will quickly recognize him as the one who likes girls who wear Abercrombie…

How Loving A Boy Band Shaped My Life

I just celebrated my first birthday as a married woman. But instead of enjoying a romantic dinner with my husband, I was at sea with a long-lost crush who re-entered my life last year. My husband knows about him, and gave me his blessing to go with him on the three-day cruise to the Bahamas.

Back On The Block

Just when we think our groupie years are behind us, a pic like this comes out and makes us want to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to cry and scream "I Love You!" at the New Kids on the Block’s Today Show concert on Friday. The Boston boy band that disbanded i…
