Do you still have your old issues of Tiger Beat? What? The pages are all stuck together? Why? What did you do to them? Why do you hope your mom doesn’t find them? Ok. Well, you’re acting weird. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that Paris Hilton‘s ex-boyfriend, Nick Carter, confirmed that the Backstreet Boys are doing a Vegas residency. Stop! Stop screaming! Jesus! Why do you all of a sudden have pigtails and braces?! What is happening?! Get me out of here! Help! Help!
Yep, your inner tween can pop back into her boob tube and smear some definitely not at all toxic body glitter gel on her neck and worst parts of her face because BSB is back. I mean, Backstreet’s back, alright? I’m not going any louder than that. ET spoke to Nick at the L.A. premiere of his new SyFy flick, Dead7 and he told them the band has signed a deal for nine-shows to test the waters and see if a permanent show should get the greenlight. If Carrot Top and Donnie and Marie can have smash amounts of money (copyright Sean Young) shows in Vegas, why wouldn’t BSB? Nick said, “If it does really well, then I think that’ll open that door and then in future we’ll do it. So that’s definitely going to happen but we’re going to do a trial run first.” He also added that fans should expect “a very big and spectacular show“. A couple lasers, some ropes from the ceiling and some outdated choreographed dancing. Yep. Sounds big and spectacular to me.
Kevin Richardson, the tall one with black hair, also confirmed the shows and said it all came about after the boys talked to Britney Spears backstage after one of her lazy lip synch spectaculahs. “It seemed really convenient for the family! A Vegas residency, now that we’re all fathers, could be very convenient for us… We won’t have to travel so much,” said Kevin. He also got your tween heart beating even faster by confirming they’re working on a new album. They should premiere it on Tidal. That would surely save it. Between Britney, JLo, Celine and now BSB, you can live in Vegas and pretend the 90s never ended!
