Tell Us Why Donald Trump Seemingly Keeps Using Backstreet Boys Lyrics
Huffington Post - 6 months
During the presidential town-hall-style debate last Sunday, Donald Trump had the opportunity to respond to a Muslim audience member asking about how he would stop the rising Islamophobia in the United States. Rather than addressing the question head-on or apologizing for his previous hateful rhetoric toward Muslims, Trump pivoted to a message of needing more security, no matter the moral cost. “People are coming into our country — we have no idea who they are, where they are from, what their feelings about our country are,” said Trump. Despite being a terribly discomfiting thing to say to a Muslim American, that sentence also happens to bizarrely mirror the lyrics from the 1997 Backstreet Boys song “As Long As You Love Me.” Part of the chorus of that song goes, “I don’t care who you are / Where you’re from / What you did / As long as you love me.” If we are to take Trump as a Backstreet Boys fan, perhaps in his twisted mind he imagines he would just ask potential immigrants ...

Florida Georgia Line Says Working With The Backstreet Boys Was 'A Bucket List Collaboration'
Huffington Post - 7 months
For Florida Georgia Line, collaborating with the Backstreet Boys was a dream come true.  The country music group, which consists of singers Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, joined forces with the boy band for the song “God, Your Mama, and Me.” The single is featured on FGL’s third studio album, “Dig Your Roots,” debuting Friday. The Huffington Post spoke to Kelley and Hubbard by phone as the duo promoted their first foray into the whiskey business, Old Camp Whiskey. The guys told us they’ve been fans of BSB for years ― the group provided Kelley’s first concert experience in 6th grade and their music was the first Hubbard owned on CD. Over the years, FGL told press about their love for the ‘90s band, and their words eventually reached the right people. “We got some good energies and good vibrations out and, next thing you know, Nick Carter was hanging out on our bus at the CMA Fest this summer,” Kelley said. “We played him the song and things just happened so quick.

Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell's Teen Son Makes Broadway Debut

For any die-hard fans of the BSB, young Baylee's existence probably isn't surprising, since he has performed onstage alongside his dad and the group from time to time -- and even opened for the boy band last year. But if you tend to view the Backstreet Boys as pure nostalgia, then we're sorry for making you feel ancient.  Anyway, talent apparently runs in the family as Baylee made his Broadway debut on Thursday night, playing two characters in "Disaster!
