Backstreet's… optimistic about our nation's future, ALRIGHT!
And now that he's about to become president, some of the industry's more outspoken stars are hopping on board the politician's
insanity band wagon!
Namely Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys, who said Trump haters needed to take a chill pill and give the racist Republican a chance in office.
On Wednesday, he told TMZ:
"Hollywood needs to chill out. You're talking about commander in chief. You're talking about respect."
We mean, it's hard to respect a living cartoon, but we'll see what happens when he takes office…
As for the boy bander, he respects the President-elect so much that he tried to get the rest of the Boys to perform at Trump's inauguration! He added:
"To be honest with you, they asked me to ask the guys to sing [at the inauguration.] It just didn't work out. I would've been there if I could have, but we're starting rehearsals for our Vegas show. So, it's like it just couldn't happen."
Nice plug, Bri! Trump would be proud of your capitalistic spirit.
In the end, the 41-year-old just wants to heal this divided country into a nation of "one love," explaining:
"This is America. And we're the greatest nation on the planet, so just love each other, man. Not use it as divide. Cause this guy, as of Friday… he's gonna be our Commander in Chief. In my opinion, he's gonna do so many great things for this nation… I have faith in his character, his beliefs, and his balls."
Now that's undying optimism that could only come from a surviving member of the ‘90s boy band craze!
Do YOU agree with the singer?
