Chatting With… Joey McIntyre (Part 1)!

Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!

Boy, were WE excited when we got to sit down with NKOTB hottie Joey McIntyre!

In our EXCLUSIVE two-part interview, we chat about everything from boy bands to the future of pop music, and even Britney!!!

It's been almost 25 years since Joey and the New Kids hit the scene, but we're still in luuurve! Check out our exciting interview with Joey Mac (above) and read excerpts from our little kiki AFTER THE JUMP!

Perez: Hey everybody, it's Perez, joined by Joey McIntyre. You know, we're in a very exciting time right now. Boy bands are officially back!

Joey McIntyre: They are. It's nice.

Perez: Why do you think that is?

Joey McIntyre: Well, it's about right if you look over the history, like a timeline, like the stock market, they say you should invest because it's always going to go up. So, I don't know, every 10 years, and it's been about 10 years since *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys and all those guys so…

Perez: Well, it's been more! They started in the middle of '96 to '97. It's been like 15 years! It's been a long time!

Joey McIntyre: (laughs) Maybe it's been longer than that, that's right.

Perez: Although, and I love The Wanted, and I like One Direction too. I do! Their music has beaten me over the head and I surrendered to What Makes You Beautiful, but they don't dance like New Kids or Backstreet or *NSYNC.

Joey McIntyre: I don't understand that. The girls don't seem to mind that though.

Perez: But then when you see them in concert, it gets a little bit boring because they don't dance.

Joey McIntyre: Coming from the school of Boston and we looked up to New Edition and the line of Jackson 5 and The Temptations, that came along, it's almost like you're not a boy band unless you dance.

Perez: That's what I think.

Joey McIntyre: I'll talk to The Wanted. They're coming to the festival so I'll sit them down and I'll, "Come on guys."

Perez: Dancing makes for a great show. The Wanted are performing at a festival that you're headlining at, called Mixtape at Hershey.

Joey McIntyre: Hershey, Pennsylvania. You've ever been there?

Perez: No, but is it a theme park?

Joey McIntyre: (laughs) It's not like next to the merry-go-round. It's separate.

Perez: But, I think that would be more fun!

Joey McIntyre: You would love it. Hershey Park is where Hershey's chocolate was made and there's a museum and a ride, but there's also this huge amusement park–

Perez: I love roller coasters.

Joey McIntyre: It's so much fun. We've played a couple times before. It's a good central location for a lot of cities, in the northeast.

Perez: Everybody knows about the Mixtape festival. When is that coming up?

Joey McIntyre: That's this weekend.

Perez: This weekend! Are tickets sold out?

Joey McIntyre: It's an outside festival. We'll get you in there!

Perez: We'll get this set up tomorrow. It's this weekend. We're building excitement! We're hours away!

Joey McIntyre: We're the cherry on the top.

Perez: And The Wanted is performing? Who else is going to be there? Kelly Clarkson?

Joey McIntyre: Friday night.

Perez: Big pop festival! I love it! Pop is back too! The biggest sound of the year is Call Me Maybe.

Joey McIntyre: Yeah…That's in a class by itself, isn't it?

Perez: That's like a pure pop song though.

Joey McIntyre: From 1995

Perez: I love it because for the past few years it was a lot more dance-singing. But, also Kelly Clarkson with her song Stronger. That's another pure, down-the-middle pop song, which it hadn't been like that for a while.

Perez: Boy bands are coming back, but one thing that hasn't are girl groups. And I love girl groups. The last one was the Pussycat Dolls and there really hasn't been a successful girl group since then.

Joey McIntyre: It's time. You must have–

Perez: I want to put together a girl group, but a different kind of girl group. I want to oput together a girl group - I want them to dance and I want them to feel very multi-cultural so they should be all different ethnicities and I want a fierce fat black girl. That's not been done before!

Joey McIntyre: I think we can do that! I think we can work that.

Perez: Email me! If you want to be in a girl group, but I want them to be young, 18-19.

Joey McIntyre: Wow. Well, you gotta have some longevity…you want that really innocent, before they just get drained out, you know–

Perez: Well, I don't want bad girls. I want good girls.

Joey McIntyre: Really??

Perez: Noo! Like The Spice Girls!

Joey McIntyre: Alright. You want good girls and you want to watch them do bad– (laughs)

Perez: Like Britney. I guess. Do you think Britney will do well on X Factor?

Joey McIntyre: Ummm…

Perez: (laughs)

Joey McIntyre: I mean, you can never count Britney out. The more people say she's this, she's that, she keeps coming back with great music and she does her thing. Now, she's not the most talkative, she's not known for her sound bites, but Paula Abdul, you know, but that's what kept it exciting.

Perez: Is acting regularly something more along the lines of what you'd like to be doing?

Joey McIntyre: Absolutely. I just finished– Melissa McCarthy from Bridesmaids

Perez: Yeah, yeah, funny, funny lady.

Joey McIntyre: –and Sandra Bullock are doing a–

Perez: A film? You're in it?

Joey McIntyre: — I am in it. I play one of Melissa's crazy Irish, Boston Irish, brothers.

Perez: Ooh, I'm excited about that!

Joey McIntyre: Yeah, it was a blast. And Paul Feig is the director, from Bridesmaids.

Perez: Oooh! This is going to be a big hit I think!

Joey McIntyre: I think so! But you know, knock on wood!

Perez: Everybody loves Sandra Bullock! Everyone loves Melissa McCarthy! Everyone loves Joey McIntyre!

Joey McIntyre: Exactly…

    Re: Fredrick – You HAVE to be one of Perez's friends and/or employee. He looks nasty.. Needs a shave, some shampoo, and some food

  3. 3

    jesus man, you look like a terminal cancer patient wino. no fucking wonder you cannot get a real relationship with a real gay guy. Seriously you really look bad.

  4. nationalenquirer says – reply to this

  9. 9

    Re: Fredrick
    Are you f*cking stupid?

  11. 11

    And where is this "set" of yours? Its that cheap-ass back-drop screen that folds into itself…. soooo professional. Perfect for the self-proclaimed "Queen of all media." More like the "Queen of Sh*t"

  12. 12

    Mario aka Perez gets on my nerves too but some of you guys are going overboard, chill.

  13. 13

    Mario, time for a Make over honey, and some food (don´t give a bad example, be toooo thin is BAD)
    Joe, No problem with you, you look really god =D

  14. 14

    Good point about the lack of dancing with today's bands - boring, lackluster, and lazy

  15. homohilton says – reply to this


    Yep looks like that aids has finaly kicked in…
    Mama leach should have swallowed.

  16. YIKES! says – reply to this


    Perez, didn't I see you on TV last night, playing an old pervy pedophile on Criminal Minds?
    UGH. Good lord man, you look awful. Whatever drug you're on is seriously damaging your skin and hair follicles. And you're interview reads like some guy talking to a 12 year old. I mean… "I love rollercoasters," and "A film? You're in it?"… "ooh, sounds exciting!"
    It's like your body is aging fast while your mind is regressing… yikes.

  17. puspus says – reply to this


    Joey Mcintyre was my childhood crush and my adult crush now, what a beautiful man, yum!!

    on that note, awesome to see Perez going thru his werewolf transformation! bonus!

  18. 18

    I'm not even going to press play because seeing the video capture of you alone is too much for me to handle. Could you not have shaved/cleaned up A BIT? You look like you have been living on the streets for months and just woke up and just decided to do an interview out of nowhere.

  19. venbord says – reply to this


    yeah he looks really bad. not healthy at all.

  20. laura says – reply to this


    One Direction doesn't dance because they CAN'T dance. have you seen them try? it's horrendous. i saw them in concert, and it was still amazing without any dancing.

  21. inner_peace says – reply to this


    Perez sweetheart, you of all people should know better than that. Most are so focused on how you look not much attention is being paid to the interviewee.
