All our dreams came true within the last few months when Kevin Richardson decided to stop doing whatever the hell he was doing, get some artsy hair flair on his face and rejoin the Backstreet Boys.
The fellas are back in the studio currently and thankfully they are all up to date on their social media and like to instagram photos of themselves.
Does anyone else get chills from the excitement?
As much as we all claim that Kevin Richardson is the useless Backstreet Boy (I mean, they kind of functioned for years while he was living in the woods), it’s kind of magical when they are all in one room.
Plus, we’ve never seen this many photos of them in a week span– I hope they put Kev on payroll as inhouse photographer.
Well, it’s definitely not “I Want It That Way”, and it’s definitely more in the vein of the modern feel pop music is taking. But, the fact that the Backstreet Boys are growing with pop music trends for new fans, yet still add their signature, mature harmonies for old fans is what makes it work.
“Lost In Space” is a new song (didn’t even know that was happening because I’m a sucky fan) and I just love the Backstreet Boys so much. I don’t even care that they use astronomy metaphors for love in this song. I love space!! My love for them is as infinite as the depth of the universe. See?? I can do it too. Nick Carter, let’s date.
First off… this is the scariest picture of the Backstreet Boys I’ve ever seen.
If something was attacking me with the mask Nick Carter has on… I’d kill myself while looking at the image of a puppy so that creepy mask wasn’t the last thing I saw. <— I think about what I’d do if a psychotic killer was on the loose sometimes. Ya gotta be preapred.
And it reminds me of their wonderful song “Masquerade”
I’m so in love with them. I can barely type anything about them because I could just sit and let their sweet sweet harmonies heal my soul, but I’m a soldier, so I will relay some information, even though it’s like torture to me right now.
You, yes you….you’ve all been asking and waiting patiently….well
it’s finally here!
WHO IS READY FOR THE BACKSTREET BOYS CRUISE 2011!
Well, we definitely know we are!
We are so excited to FINALLY announce the BEST party on the ocean- BSB
Please block off Dec 2 – 5th. Let your friends and family know you
won’t be answering their calls because you’ll be too busy hanging with
us as we play, eat, dance and drink the nights away!
All presale and other cruise information can be found here!
If you weren’t able to come last time we EXPECT to see your shinning
faces this time and if you were there last time….well, ahem….you
know what’s up!
We can’t wait to see you aboard this wild ride!!
Let the countdown begin!
This is only $700. Listen… I can dip into my savings and spring for this.
I would love to play Titanic with Nick Carter. I would gladly run around the ship with him. We could draw each other, go to REAL parties, save each other from jumping ship….and don’t you worry…. I’d share that freakin’ wooden door.
I’m going to try to fake my death and not pay rent this month, so I can go to this. I’ll let you know when I come up with a plan.
I’m gonna go listen to some more Backstreet Boys.
I’ll leave you with this before I go and put on my serious music reviewer hat for the Sara Bareilles show tonight.
I thank Cher for sending me this video. And not Big D’s Cher, I have my very own, who sends me wonderful videos like this one.
I don’t see parrots dancing to *Nsync. Just saying.
And no, it isn’t Lee D. Dos holding the HAT OF ALL FREAKIN’ HATS in his left hand with a match to it in his right. I’d kill him if I ever saw him do such a blasphemous thing. That would be true heartbreak… and I’d never be able to love again.
Anyway… enough about him because HE GAVE ME NOTHING TODAY!! (We are so in a fake fight!) let’s discuss NKOTBSB and then some actual true life stories.
That’s a picture of 1/2 the Backstreet Boys and all of New Kids On The Block. I love seeing the union of the two as NKOTBSB… but this picture is missing two very important people; AJ Mclean and Nick Carter.
I don’t like talking personal lives, especially when it’s a difficult topic, but this picture makes me sad. AJ isn’t there because he’s in rehab (story I cried when he went into rehab the 1st time. My very first BSB concert was postponed, I was 13, and I didn’t even know what rehab was) and Nick isn’t there because his crazy brother, Aaron, is in rehab. Now, these two (AJ and Nick) are my absolute favorite… what does this say about me?? Do I have a type??
I know it’s awful to make this about myself… but I can’t be falling in love with addicts… unless they are addicted to my humor and this blog. (and green apples because they are delicious)
I wish they were in that picture… I wish the both of them and their families well.
Now for real life stories with Rocco & her family:
This conversation actually happened:
Rocco: Ma… did I tell you AJ is back in rehab??
Big D: WHAT A DRUG ADDICT!! I KNEW IT!! YOU CAN’T BE AROUND PEOPLE LIKE THAT!! WHAT A JERK!
Mamadukes: I’m glad you never married him
Rocco: *looks at sister* Can you get me a piece of ice cream cake??
And this is just a little anecdote about how the love for boy bands run through my veins. It’s in my DNA:
I went to go see New Kids with my older sister (and other older sister, but thats irrelevant to this story, I just wanted to point out why I’m so needy; I’m the youngest child), who is an avid fan. She is the only reason I’m really into them and I’m pretty sure she’d leave her family to be with Donnie Wahlberg. I have evidence of this. And here is the evidence: We had a meet & greet with them… and I was excited, it was cool, but my sister was a nut case. I swear to Oprah… she pushed a handicapped girl out-of-the-way to stand next to Donnie in the picture. I’ve never seen her move so fast. Literally, side swiped a handicapped person.
If that isn’t proof she’d leave her husband and child behind…. I’m not sure what is.
Can you tell I’m just killing time before American Idol tonight??
And thanks to TatisR… I have plenty more of that for my Idol recap.
GO SHORTY…. IT’S YO BIRTHDAY!!! WE GONNA PARTY LIKE IT’S YO BIRTHDAY!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AJ MCLEAN!!! I hope someone buys you more black eyeliner.
Wanna know a funny personal story about me as a child?? Good… I’m gonna tell you.
I used to make Mamadukes make a cake every January 9th in honor of AJ McLean’s birthday…. and you bet your ass we all sang happy birthday and I blew out the candles. It was a good time.
And just because I love the Backstreet Boys….
What a gem this is. If I needed any more confirmation from the Universe, fate, destiny, and/or Oprah that me and Nick Carter are meant to be, I’d be an idiot.
TatisR (the genius behind the “Lee DeWyze = Action Hero” pic… let’s just look at it again below.. . by the way that’s going to be the title when I submit it to MOMA… the Museum of Modern Art here in NYC. Look for the exhibit this spring) sent me this video of Nick Carter on the BSB Cruise.
(This has nothing to do with anything… I just wanted to post it again. Oopsie!)
During a Q&A session someone asked Nick who would he want to use his free pass on?? Meaning, who would he cheat on his girlfriend with, (and yes, he has a girlfriend… but I’m confident it’s just a phase) and what was his answer???
If you’re deaf and didn’t catch that he said…. OPRAH!
I don’t even care if he was joking around…. the fact that she popped in his mind, as opposed to the other billion of beautiful women in the world (and me), just proves her power. It’s like she penetrates people’s brains.
Just one more reason for me to want to be Oprah in life. *shakes fist towards heaven*
(I don’t know why but I put myself in 3rd person in the titles sometimes… it kind of annoys me, but it just comes out that way in my head. Sorry, if it annoys you too)
I always wonder what I’m going to do New Year’s Eve. It’s such a project for me to decide. I’m really bad at making decisions. I usually make them through Backstreet Boy songs, praying to Oprah, or a magic 8 ball.
I don’t like planning to far ahead because usually those plans fall through or you get all hyped, and they turn out lame. But, on the flip side, you can’t wait until the last-minute because then events are sold out or your friends made plans without you, while you were too busy making up your mind and flipping over the magic 8 ball.
For instance, last year I was with friends and at 11:35 we were still deciding what we were going to do. We were in pajamas sitting around, still recovering from the night before because, like idiots, we went out and got drunk the night BEFORE New Years. And in 10 minuets we got dressed, tried to find a cab on 1st avenue and tried to make to make it to our favorite restaurant by midnight. I sat in the cab at 11:50 thinking “ugh I’m gonna spend New Year’s in this smelly cab… kind of funny, yet kind of sad”. We made it to the restaurant and had a lovely night.
Another great New Years, when I was spontaneous, I was in Philly, and I’m not going to go into detail (to protect the people who were there and my dignity) but it consisted of playing beer pong with wine, (not smart), a lot of champagne, and “sleeping” on a wood floor, using a jacket as a blanket, and spooning with my friend Alex. Again, lovely night.
And a few years ago, I spent the holiday playing a very frightening video game until 5AM.
As you can see from 3 of my more memorable New Years… they are not very well planned and/or epic nights that New Years Eve holiday calls for.
So, 2010 to 2011 needs to be a big event to top those 2 nights…. and I was so perplexed at what to do. I’m in NYC…. the perfect place to celebrate!
And then I read this:
Jordan Knight did a radio interview in Boston today confirming that both NKOTB and Backstreet Boys will be performing on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Backstreet Boys announced this on the cruise a little while ago and said they would be in NYC.
The show airs on ABC December 31 at 10pm then at 11:30pm to 2:11am.
Jordan Knight, from New Kids On The Block, just shapped my New Years faster than the 10 seconds it takes Ryan Seacrest to count down with Dick Clark on New Years Eve.
My night has been planned… I’m spending it with Nick Carter. WOW! This is gonna be good!
They’re going to be performing!??! WTF? What song?? I scour YouTube and discover NKOTBSB (the super hero boy band) have a song…. together! And here is a sneak peak. And a peek of them completely wasted.
I’m totally ditching my friends and Snooki coming out of a ball for this.
And ya know what??? I’m kind of excited and it may be the best New Years Eve ever.
TatisR on Twitter just made my night… and by night I mean made my LIFE!!
As many of you may know, because I complained about it for 4 days, the Backstreet Boys and some fans went on a cruise ship and played Titanic without me.
The jealousy was killing me. I’m not a jealous person… but this was just making me green with envy. I hate that expression, because I have no idea what the color green has to do with envy… but I felt so much jealousy that this is the only way to explain it. Either the color green, or the Chipmunk version of Lee DeWyze’s “Me & My Jealousy” (only that version though)
Anyway, TatisR gave me a glimmer of hope (and totally fantasy) that the boys were thinking of me.
Thank you BSB and thank you TatisR.
I can now lay my head peacefully.
Isn’t it always that way…. you either want to date them or be an actual Backstreet Boy! I’m sure if I was a boy, I’d be running around harmonizing with the fellas.
Nick Lachey hosts a show called Sing Off and the group, Committed, sang the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way”.
This just proves BSB and anything related to BSB can get me to watch just about anything on TV.
WHOA! Nick Lachey… a little bitter about being in 98Degrees.
Now, lets hear the Backstreet Boys circa now, sing it.
Not nearly as fancy as the Committed boys, but unconditional love once again for BSB comes into play. Plus, minus Kevin sometimes “I Want It That Way” falters. Okay… I admit Committed sounded better, but they added all the pizzazz that BSB doesn’t need! (look who’s bitter now)
And here’s one for you Nick!!
98 Degrees was like the jacked up version of every other boy band. They are so buff… it’s scary.
