Backstreet Boys Reunite After 6 Years

Sorry, New Kids on the Block fans, it’s only the Backstreet Boys who are reuniting!

Yep, you heard me.  For the first time in 6 years, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Kevin Richardson, reunited to perform some hits today on Good Morning America. 

And they’re back again!  The group is currently working on its fifth studio album, which they’ll release with Kevin Richardson, 40.  Richardson left the band in 2006, to leave Littrell, 37, Carter, 32, Dorough, 38, and McLean, 34 to fend for themselves in a music scene that became less and less welcome to boy band groups.  The Backstreet Boys- now middle-aged men- sung “Larger Than Life,” “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), “Incomplete” and “I Want It That Way” for a massive NYC audience on the show this morning.

“We definitely have some of the best fans in the world, that’s for sure,” Carter told Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer. “It’s like we never stopped-and now we’ve got Kev back, so now Backstreet’s back.”

Aw!  But that’s not all- to commemorate the group’s 20 years of music making,  in October of 2013, the group will headline a Backstreet Boys CRUISE!  I bet many women would easily book a ticket on that one…I would, just to hear “I want it that way,” while sipping a mojito poolside.

Would you go on the Backstreet Cruise?!

A.J. McLean of the Backstreet Boys enters rehab…again!

TMZ is reporting that Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean has entered rehab, and it’s not his first time.

One source tells TMZ McLean has been “out of control” in the last few months because of substance abuse, and it was interfering with plans for the Backstreet Boys‘ upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block.

McLean has battled addiction for years.   He was in rehab in both 2001 and 2002 for alcohol and cocaine abuse.

McLean made a cryptic reference on his Twitter account, writing on January 9, “I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm!”

On January 10, McLean tweeted,  “See u on the other side!”

Good luck…again!
