Gen X’ers rejoice; the Backstreet boys are joining Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey in Las Vegas for a potential residency. JK, J.Lo and Mimi probably won’t let any of those guys speak to them but yes, all three acts will be in the same city.
No, it is not a plague or a virus or a government conspiracy that will bring about the zombie apocalypse. Instead, the harbinger of our imminent, flesh-eating doom will be *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone in chaps and a hipster ‘stache, screaming that the zombies are everywhere, and he’s low on his whiskey.
Sad Dancing With the Stars Diaries is a series in which we imagine the innermost feelings of Dancing With the Stars contestants, as written in their “journals.”
"20 years is a long time, for anybody. Let alone a buncha dorks jumping around on stage, singing and dancing," A.J. McLean remarks near the end of the trailer for Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of, a few plumes of (weed?) smoke escaping from the corners of his mouth. Okay, this looks good.
Today in Why Is This A Thing, Jordan Knight and Nick Carter have a duet album called Nick and Knight, out on Tuesday. Your head will also probably explode once this thing hits store shelves because that’s what happens when Boy Band members from two different generations clash in the name of self promotion.
In today's Tweet Beat, Zach Braff stays ahead of the rumor mill, Ellen Page and Megan Amram get new tats and Nick Carter and Joey Fatone are in an *NSYNC/BSB feud.
1997-2003 enthusiasts rejoice. The Backstreet Boys and Avril Lavigne have announced a North American tour that will kick off in May and run through the summer. "Hooray," someone shouts somewhere as she dusts off the collection of sassy keychains that she bought at Claire's. "I haven't been this excited since Bath &…
As of this week, there's a rift in the Backstreet Boys. Where once they were (re)united in their goal to sell albums entirely from the mom population of America, things have changed. A.J. and Brian are on one shirtless side and Howie, Kevin and Nick are on the other very shirted side. What could have caused this rift?
The Backstreet Boys have released their first single since Kevin Richardson got his shit together and joined back up with the band. It's titled "In A World Like This", the same as their new album. And it is not good.
It's true, nothing gold can stay, and by "gold" I mean "Two and a Half Men, the worst CBS show you're not watching." While Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have resigned their contracts for a third season (Kutcher at a $700,000-per-episode payout; Cryer at, I don't know, a gum wrapper and a damp Nickelback ticket stub?),
The British anti-child abuse advocacy group Kidscape is pissed off that Gwyneth Paltrow hawks bikinis for four to eight year-olds in her latest GOOP newsletter. She captioned images of the swimwear, a collaboration with designer Melissa Odabash and exact replica of adult bikinis sold on the site, that it's "great for…
"Howie! Psst, Howie," Brian whispered into the darkness. The sun would be rising soon and he still hadn't slept a wink. When Howie didn't answer, Brian jabbed at the mattress springs of the bunk bed above him.
I don't even know how to BEGIN to feel about this. A.J. McLean (a.k.a. Fedora Patient Zero) says that Ryan Gosling could have been a Backstreet Boy—he was definitely secks-yoooo-uhhhlllll enough—but it didn't happen because McLean didn't have Gosling's phone number. However, in 2013, he's willing to give baby-goose a…
Old Navy is continuing its marketing campaign down '90s memory lane (though they are skirting the oughts here), this time bringing in everyone's second favorite Lou Pearlman project the Backstreet Boys to help move their new, extra stretchy (ugh) skinny jeans line. According to the commercial, the boys of the…

You have doubtlessly shed a bitter tear over professional fishmouth Steven Tyler's departure from his post as an American Idol judge. Said Tyler in what could loosely be called a statement: "After some long…hard…thoughts…I've decided it's time for me to let go of my mistress 'American Idol' before she boils my…
Not to make light of a terrible situation, but...this dude (somewhere between an A.J. and a Howie) makes the uprising in Syria look like KISS 106.1 FM Summer Jam '97. As an opening act, he recites some stately free verse about the threat of President Bashar al-Assad military forces:
A strange feeling may form inside you as you watch this clip about the portmanteau-named manband NKOTBSB. The whole "in the studio with the former teen idols" angle feels like a fake Behind The Music skit from Saturday Night Live. And haven't we reached a place where the words "kids" and "boys" no longer apply? And…
- After almost getting divorced, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are back in marital blissland and preparing to renew their marriage vows. They've been through so much together! Isn't their ability to forget the past kind of inspiring?
- Rachel Weisz and director Darren Aronofsky are separating after nine years together.
