It seems like only yesterday, we were swooning and weak at the knees over the sexy young Backstreet Boys as they danced in the rain with their shirts unbuttoned while crooning their debut single, Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)!
But in reality, it's been exactly 20 YEARS since A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell burst onto the scene as the members of what would become one of the biggest, most successful boy bands of all time…and now, as they celebrate such a momentous anniversary (they even got stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!) we're DELIGHTED to hear that they have NO plans to, ahem, 'show us the meaning of being lonely!'
Ch-ch-check out a PerezHilton.com EXCLUSIVE interview with Nick and Howie as they reflect on their journey as a band, their incredible fanbase that has kept them making music, securing creative freedom for the production of their new album and what to expect when it drops (above)!
That's right! Nick claims it's 90-95% FINISHED! And they're working with super-producer Max Martin once again!
AH-MAY-ZING! We couldn't be more thrilled to see that while they're rightfully proud of all their incredible accomplishments, they're still challenging themselves creatively and thinking so much about what their fans want!
Congratulations, guys! Here's hoping for ANOTHER incredible 20 years of Backstreet!
