Boyz II Men will perform at NJ NKOTBSB show!

There was a lot of drama on Twitter when BoyzIIMen posted

"Just got word we will NOT b on the NKOTBSB tour! Thanx so much for the support!! I guess they "wanted it that way"!! S/O to @NKOTB!!"  (P.S. S/O means shout out)

New Kids fans went berserk hating BSB etc

This tweet increased the hype and had me questioning what the heck was going on and thinking the account was hacked.

"They "QUIT PLAYING GAMES" so thats why We didn't get "THE CALL"! Shouts to the Homie @DonnieWahlberg!"

Then the wicked pranksters posted this

"just having fun guyz! See y'all in "New Joi-Zee!!""

LOL I have no hate for any of the groups and i hope the fans calm down, see through the rubble and realise that everything is cool and get excited for this tour!!!

Did BoyzIIMen make a fool out of you? :D


BoyzIIMen may have been messing around about dissing BSB and they may very well be on the NKOTBSB tour BUT the NJ comment is about their OWN tour happening tomorrow.

Perez article on Kevin Richardson in Bloody Indulgent aka Vampire Musical

           Click on picture for full quality   

Well, former Backstreet Boy. Apparently, this is what he left the band to do.

Writer-director and El Lay virtuoso Ken Roht is taking the vampire-fad to a new level. Sources confirm that he is just near completion on his feature debut, The Bloody Indulgent, A Sexy Vampire Musical.
Oh boy.

Starring in the lead as a vampire with "a substance-abuse problem (on top of drinking human blood, that is)" is BSB's Kevin Richardson.
The movie comes out in summer 2011, which means Kevin will most likely be promoting the film in leu of touring the country with his boys and the New Kids On The Block.

Anyone else think that's a poor decision?

Katy Perry to perform with NKOTBSB at American Music Awards AMA's

katy perry to perform with nkotb and backstreet boys on american music awards Katy Perry To Perform With NKOTB And Backstreet Boys On American Music Awards

Who knows if this one is truth or rumour just yet but this site Beat Crave is reporting the joint performance.

All current tweens and tweens of the past who are fans of magazines such as Teen Beat or Tiger Beat will be bouncing off the walls once they hear this. Katy Perry, one of the most annoying but biggest pop stars of today, will be joining mega-boy bands of the past, NKOTB (New Kids On The Block) andBackstreet Boys, on stage as part of a performance for the American Music Awards.
Whether this makes you want to watch the AMAs more or less, it’s happening and it will probably be ridiculously hilarious. Details after the jump!
According to, Orly Adelson, president of Dick Clark Productions, made the announcement on Monday and he’s very excited about it because, apparently, he said the following statement: “New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys on one stage is something special. Moments like these are what the AMAs are all about.”
Well, come time for the AMAs or The Grammys, not many of us seem to care anymore. It’s all about marketing these days rather than the talent. Although NOKTB’s “Hangin’ Tough” is definitely a guilty pleasure for a lot of people, these two boy bands of the past were all about hype and teenage girls rather than their ability to put on a credible musical performance. What are we going to do though? We have acts such as Britney Spears who “never claimed to be a singer” but she sure is labeled quite the “entertainer.”
Both boy bands are getting ready to go on a Summer 2011 tour and are hoping that this national televised gig will boost their ticket sales when it’s time to hit the road. This will also be the first time both boy bands will perform on the same stage together. Throw in some Katy Perry wearing a blue wig and a sequined bra in the midst of middle-aged has-been men and we assume (but are sad it’s come to this) the award show’s ratings will also see an increase.
Other acts set to perform on the AMAs this year include Rihanna, Diddy-Dirty Money, Ne-Yo, Justin BieberKe$haChristina AguileraBon JoviP!nk and Usher.

The original article from which this story came said that Katy Perry would be sharing the stage with New kids On the Block and Backstreet Boys but in no way indicated it would be at the same time.

Katy Perry is one of the major acts expected to hit the stage at the 2010 American Music Awards show in Los Angeles - and yesterday - we learned that New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys are also booked to perform. Orly Adelson, president of Dick Clark Productions, made the announcement Monday.
The performance marks the first time both groups will perform on the same stage together for a national televised audience prior to their summer 2011 tour.
"New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys on one stage is something special. Moments like these are what the AMAs are all about," AMA producer Larry Klein said in a statement.
The boy bands join the previously announced line-up of Rihanna, Diddy-Dirty Money, Ne-Yo, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Christina Aguilera, Bon Jovi, P!nk and Usher.
The show is to be broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE Nov. 21 on ABC.

Nick Carter new song - Not The Other Guy

I don't know about you folks but I am getting super pumped for his solo record!

Lyrics thanks to

If he makes you cry

Cuz he said he'd love you forever

You should know that I'mma be the one to make you smile

When the lights go dark

And the colors around you are fading
You can reach for me
cuz I'll always be anything that you're looking to find


I'm not the other guy
Don't ever wanna lie to you baby
Girl it should be you and me tonight so
Don't leave me waiting
I'm not the other guy

Would you take my heart?
Would you take all my love if I gave it?
There's no place too far
I will always get to you
I'll be there when you call
Take the weight of the world off your shoulders
Girl, you found the one who will ever run
No, I'm never gonna stop, do you know

I'm not the other guy
Don't ever wanna lie to you baby
Girl it should be you and me tonight so
Don't leave me waiting
I'm not the other guy

So girl just let me tell you right now

You'll never find another, no doubt

Who will you treat you good like you deserve

Or the one who'll always put you first

So baby don't you know

Know... know...You know

You know it should be you and me tonight
So don't leave me here alone

I'm not the other guy
Don't ever wanna lie to you baby
Girl it should be you and me tonight so
Don't leave me waiting
I'm not the other guy [I'm seating on the sidelines]

I'm not the other guy [I've been waiting my whole life!]
Girl It should be you and me tonight so
Don't leave me waiting

I'm not the other guy!

New boyband One Call replaces Backstreet Boys at Jive Records.

Well aint that just a kick in the teeth! After years of Jive not giving a hoot about boybands Backstreet boys finally break free and what happens? they sign a new boyband.

Pop music fans of the past decade may know Johnny Wright as the very successful manager of *N Sync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, The Jonas Brothers, and Janet Jackson. Well you know what they say, ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.’ Johnny’s team at Wright Entertainment Group and Jive Records are at it again! Meet the latest boy band/Pop grop, One Call! 

One Call’s single, “BlackLight,” dazzles with beats and harmonies that could get any dance floor moving. Four separate voices— AG Gamlieli, Chris Moy, Jose Bordonada and Justin Thorne—color the song with distinct flare, fire and fervor.  However, One Call rings loudly with a diverse and daring style. Their forthcoming Jive Records release “BlackLight” pulsates with genuine pop prowess, and One Call won’t ever stop shining.
“In a nutshell, it’s eclectic pop,” says Justin in regards to One Call’s sound. “When we sit down to write together, we come from different places, running the gamut from pop to R&B. We approach writing with a very eclectic mind, and we want to make noise.”
Legendary music executive Johnny Wright heard that noise loud and clear when he assembled One Call. Wright helped launch The Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC and The Jonas Brothers, to name a few. He’s got an ear for talent, and an eye for the future. In 2008, he orchestrated the Bandemonium Tour featuring Menudo and NLT. The stars had already begun to align as Justin was in NLT, and Chris and Jose were members of Menudo. However, once Johnny met AG in 2009, that’s when he’d found the fourth piece necessary for a true pop super group. Johnny brought the boys to Florida for their first writing session, and they instantly clicked. One Call cranked out a ton of music and snagged the opening slot on Britney Spears’ critically acclaimed Circus tour. It’s been a wild ride ever since.
“BlackLight” swings with a sexy, slick style. It’s got a funky rhythm and a fist-pumping hook. Fans were able to sneak a preview of “Black Light” when it was featured on the hit ABC Family show, Pretty Little Liars in August. The song officially hits radio soon, and it will formally introduce the world to One Call.
About “BlackLight,” Justin reveals, “I had this concept in my head for a long time. Underneath a black light, things appear differently than they do in regular light. A lot will only appear under a black light. When a black light comes on, everything changes. Essentially, as soon as it turns on, you party. Everything goes away and you’re just dancing. Music runs parties—no matter if it’s played from an iPod or by a DJ. We wanted a song that would drive any kind of party or club, put people in a good mood and make them want to have fun.”
Anyone within earshot will certainly have a blast with the song’s hyper-charged infectious melody. It’s undeniably invigorating, and the group flashes brightly with genuine vocal ability.
These four personalities come together to make One Call so unforgettable and unique. AG keeps the group laughing, but he also approaches the tunes with devotion and dedication. Chris, the youngest member, is a real ladies man with a love for smooth R&B. For Jose, it’s all about crafting the tightest show possible. Justin’s got a deep understanding of music history and he’s the glue that brings it all together with experience.
One Call opened up Britney Spears’ Circus Tour in 2009, and they immediately sunk into the hearts of Britney’s fans all over the U.S. Rocking along Britney gave the boys invaluable experience. With their calculatedly choreographed dance moves and overpowering voices, their set was a hit. Jose goes on, “It’s our job to put on a great show. We want to make very visual songs that come to life on stage. We’re bringing something back that was missing.”
Chris adds, “We’re providing a different flare for the 21st century. It definitely references a classic vibe, but it’s something new. Plus, girls can move to it!”
In the end, One Call is going to make a lasting impression. AG exclaims, “We’re four kids that have something to prove. We love what we’re doing, and we’re proud of what we leave behind along the way. We’re real, we’re here and we’re going to carve out a place in music history for ourselves.”

Kevin Richardson to feature as a "dish" on Casserole Club website

The delectable Kevin Richardson will feature in a video blog on the Casserole Club website.

A series of these blogs will appear on the site over the next coming weeks with in-depth interviews with the cast of the movie. Keep your eyes peeled.

If the first interview is anything to go by it could be quite saucy!

I am 90% certain Kevin will be back with the Backstreet Boys and here's why.

So, yes i am joining in the hype of  "OMG Kevin's coming back" but it's not just because he appeared on Oprah. it's a whole slew of things.

Firstly when he left, he never said that it was a "forever" thing and the boys straight away said the door's always open and AJ in particular has been quite vocal about wanting Kevin to come back.

In my eyes Kevin left because of Jive and management. Kevin had been quite critical of Jive's decisions from about 2002 onwards.

  • Making them tour when Brian had his open heart surgery.
  • Howie having to fly back for a show straight after his sister had died.
  • I suspect he would have also been upset about AJ having to tour after he got out of rehab the first time.
  • The constant competition between Nsync and Backstreet Boys. Having Jive sign a copy cat group to cash in on the boyband hype put a lot of pressure on the boys as they constantly had to fight to keep themselves unique and different as Jive/managment gave Nsync the same access to writers, stylists etc. Any opportunities that Backstreet said no to, Nsync were given.
  • The record company releasing Chapter One: Greatest Hits against the group's wishes
  • Nick releasing his solo record when the boys were planning for a group one. yes this does tie in with Jive as again they pushed the Backstreet vs Nsync thing by pitting Nick's first solo record "Now or Never" up against Justin Timberlake's first solo record "Justified"
  • I think the breaking point was the recording of "Never Gone". Jive again seemed to push for the Rock/Pop sound while Kevin wanted to go with the R&B stuff they were recording. I remember Nick and Kevin both saying they had to fight really hard just to get Siberia on the album. Also AJ mentioned during the "This Is Us" promo that it was the direction that Kevin wanted to be going in when he was in the group.
So now with Jive out of the picture and the fact the guys are finally at a point in their career where they do have complete control I think Kevin would really enjoy the group again. I know a lot of fans see that as Kevin just jumping on, now that the guys have done all the work getting free of Jive BUT at the time of Kevin's departure the rest of the group did not seem to be prepared to stand up and fight for control of their careers.

Now to the rumours... there are always comments about Kevin coming back but this year in particular I have noticed a few more statements along the lines of "Kevin is 100% coming back". there was one earlier in the year on a South American Facebook fan page and most recently, just after Oprah, one at JJB Messageboard "I told you guys Kevin would be with them through the BSB/NKOTB tour 2011. Wait to you guys hear what else is going on" I know this is the internet and anyone can make up stuff but back in 2008 when Kevin joined the guys on stage for Shape Of My Heart

there just weren't the same rumours floating around even though it was the perfect opportunity to make things up like that.

So fast forward to now and the talk of Kevin being on the NK / BSB joint tour (which hasn't even been confirmed). We all know Kevin has bad mouthed New Kids On The Block over the years for being a bunch of pretty faces with only 2 that can really sing so of course Kevin wouldn't want to tour with them, right? Well thinking about it, Kevin said that comment in response to the flack BSB were getting about just being "another boyband" AND he often said similar comments about the European boybands. It was more a defensive statement rather than attacking another group. Then there is also this video from 1993 and I have to say it would seem Kevin is a fan.

Also the bad mouthing wasn't all one sided. Danny Wood has said ""Backstreet's records sound the same as before - their music didn't evolve like ours has. They never spoke too highly of us and said if we had talent we'd still be around. They should've probably kept their mouths shut!" among others. Yet they still all got on stage and sang "I Want It That Way" at a new Kids concert so if Danny Wood can do that I can't see Kevin Richardson not being able to.

There have been a few possible other clues too, such as

  • That 78% figure that Brian answered when being asked about the chances of a BSB / NK tour got me thinking. Was it just a random number? Or was there something more? Well if you take into account that with Kevin obviously being one fifth of the Backstreet Boys, that could be your missing 20% right there. It seemed like a done deal  that the concert would go ahead months ago, especially when E! started reporting it.but I'm that it may have been the decision to include Kevin that was holding them back and he needed some time to decide / be convinced. The remaining 2% I would put down to the actual signing of the contract.
  • In a fairly recent interview Nick and AJ said that the Backstreet Boys have "big plans" for the future that would "turn people's heads" and capture the attention of the public and media. Ok, so they left Jive but that didn't really get the media's or public attention. Of course there was Backstreet Boys joining New Kids on stage, which did get the media and public attention but it was fairly disappointing to the fans to think that could be the big surprise. I believe Kevin coming back fits in with the big surprise and news along with possible collaborations and going to a new label or being independent
  • A reputable source within fanbase circles has hinted at a Kevin return.
  • The Oprah show. One thought that straight away sprang into my mind was "why Backstreet?" It's Oprah's last season so every show is massive and there were whispers about there being an announcement on the show. from fan reports nothing seemed to happen about an announcement but I am thinking the boys could have easily taped something privately to be shown during the show. 
Now individually everything can be easily discounted but once everything is added up....well do the math (pun intended). 

Preview of Kevin Richardson on German Popstars

Kevin Richardson on Oprah with the Backstreet Boys

That's right folks, just as you think we are getting some news related to the rest of the group Kevin decides to pop his head (literally) into a video and send the fans in a frenzy.

Basically all 5 guys were at an airport in Chicago surprising a fan by serenading her with "I'll Never Break Your Heart"

View Video here

Apparently they will be in studio tomorrow and usually these things air about a week or two after they are filmed.

A few things to weigh up are the fact that this could be a one off thing for Kevin with the boys just to surprise this fan and he is quite busy with films so i don't know if he could rejoin the group permanently BUT having said it just a coincidence that all of a sudden we have a Kevin interview coming up and an appearance on German Popstars? Neither it would seems are to do with him promoting his films but more related to him as a Backstreet Boy.

Also last year Nick said in an interview that the group would be doing something huge that the fans wouldn't expect. At the time I thought it may have been the NK / BSB tour but it could be this. The fact the boys are no longer with Jive as well would also be a reason for Kevin returning as we all know he loved the music and the touring but hated the business.

Don't forget that this is the last season of Oprah so it is bound to be big!

Kevin Richardson on Popstars (Germany)

Credit to Helizzle on ALD for the info.

It will air next Thursday, 8:15pm German time. He will be a vocal coach on the episode.

I would assume he is over in Germany but it is possible they flew out contestants to LA as they have done on other talent shows like X Factor.

Kevin Richardson to be on air with Tony Sweet

That's right! Our favourite MIA Backstreet Boy is scheduled to appear on LA Talk Radio November 5th.

I can hear that collective cheer now....I would assume it will be to talk about "The Casserole Club" although just reading about the radio show it may be more of a broad interview, as it says "With fun and hilarity, we bring the best of Hollywood, Broadway, and Politics to share their stories and reveal how their struggles turned into success stories."

Tony Sweet's show airs from 6:00pm - 8:00pm (PST). Past shows have appeared on the radio stations website LA TALK RADIO and on itunes. There is a Listen Live link on the home page and if you wish US residents can call  1-323-203-0815 during the show and overseas residents can call through Skype.

Denise Solis co-hosting on The Dope Doctor.

Another episode called "You Are Not Alone". Denise talks about while AJ was in rehab how she was getting calls and the media being outside the house trying to get an exclusive.

She also talked about how supportive the fans were and still are.
