Some of us prayed we would never hear the words again, but sure enough …
All five members of the Backstreet Boys will reunite on Good Morning America’s Summer Stage in New York, attempting to answer the question of whether you can stay a boy band if your members are all middle-aged.
Kevin Richardson, who left the group in 2006, will join the others once again for the live gig and an album the man-Boys are releasing in spring 2013. And if that’s not enough ‘street news for you, they’re also being honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Bieber may remain on top of the teen fan freak out Richter scale, but Backstreet’s reunion proves a few things: time cruelly repeats itself, we have learned nothing the past, and that 2012 may be the end of the world after all. For the love of all that’s holy, please nobody tell 0-Town it’s time to get back in the game.
