You popped your questions inside the Backstreet Boys – this is how they coped.

Up the Backstreet

Backstreet’s back, one member down, but back all the same. And to celebrate the event, we put your questions to Howie (right) and Brian (left).

All boy bands have a ‘gay one’ – it’s the law of pop music. What is taking you so long to get in line? Consuela
Howie: That’s why we don’t call ourselves a boy band, we call ourselves a vocal harmony group! But I hear we have a gay following out there. To me, it’s to each his own. As long as they’re buying records it’s all good. They can be short, they can be wide, they can be tall as long as they’re appreciating our music.
Brian: We could get a gay one! We are missing a member. Some of my good friends are gay; it’s not a big deal but unfortunately, we don’t have a gay member. Not to my knowledge anyway. But if someone wanted to come out, I’d love them just the same.
 

Which celebrity would you most like to shag? Ronda
Howie: I’d most like to get with Jessica Alba. She’s a really classy girl and part-Latin like me. I have met her, and I didn’t drool actually. It was all over so quickly: we were just coming out of a nightclub and said ‘hi’. She seemed like a very normal girl. A bit short but then I’m short too.
Brian: I always had a thing for Pamela Anderson, but I happened to marry my Pamela Anderson. Leighanne is a fricking knockout. [Puts on terrible fake English accent like Austin Powers] So I shag my wife over and over and I quite enjoy it after over ten years. It gets better and better. We can sit and talk about this all day.

Who do you guys think is the most handsome Backstreet Boy? Not who gets the most girls, but who’s the most handsome – oh, and that incudes Kevin? Ivee
Howie: Myself of course! What are you talking about? Everyone else would say the same thing as well. [Laughing] And I get most of the girls. That’s a rubbish question! Nah, seriously, we all get our good days and bad days – depending on what side we got out of bed – and our good girls and our bad girls. We probably have slowed down a little bit. Being my age now, the body doesn’t recover as well as it used to. I think sometimes I’m still 20 and my body tells me the next day that I’m not.
Brian: I would have to say Kevin though Howie is the one that really hasn’t aged. He’s got that skin. He’s got the Latin make-up. He’s the David Cassidy. But I have to say Kevin because I’ve always had this thing for Kevin, because he’s my family. You can say that in Kentucky. Just kidding…

If you had just five hours left to live, what would you do? Alesha H
Howie: I’d party like a rock star. No cares, no worries, living life, indulging. I’d probably have one big yacht out in the ocean and have a bunch of friends and a great time. We’re pop stars not rock stars and it’s a bit of a different world to all the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. We’re good wholesome guys. But I think sometimes people think we’re pansies or that we must have stories of really living like rock ‘n’ roll hairband guys.
Brian: I would spend nothing but time with my wife and my little boy. And get a whole load of loving from my wife. Whoo!

If you could choose one person to meet, alive or dead, who would it be? Jennie
Howie: Wow, tough. Probably Elvis. Maybe Ghandi or even Jesus. Hopefully, one day, when I’ve passed away I’ll meet him but if I could have been around in his lifetime I would have asked him what life’s all about. Even now I’m in my 30s I’m still searching to find out who I am.
Brian: Mine would be Jesus first and Elvis second.

If there was a Backstreet Boys movie, which actor would you want to play you? Diana M
Howie: I’d probably have Antonio Banderas because I’m very suave. Brian would have to be Jim Carrey. Nick, probably Nicolas Cage; AJ would be Elvis Costello. Is he an actor or a singer?
Brian: I’d pick Leonardo to play Nick; I would have Matt Damon play me; probably Mark Wahlberg to play AJ, you know, the bad boy. I’d have Enrique Iglesias to play Howie. I would pick either Tom Cruise or Keanu Reeves to play Kevin… Actually, Tom is a little short so I’d have Keanu to play Kevin.

Did Kevin leave because he had a problem with Jive or the management company or because he wanted to? Emma
Brian: We kind of threw him in a dumpster out the back in an alley! We all had to club together because Kevin’s a big guy. Actually, it was a happy split. There was no one storming out of anywhere.
Howie: Kevin came to us when we started planning this record a year and a half ago and said, ‘You know what guys, my heart’s not right here, right now. I really want to start working on a family.’ And when you start recording and touring, you’re really giving up two years of your life. We could have sat it out, the four of us, but you know what, we thought, ‘Why punish our fans? They’ll at least be appreciative of the four of us.’ The door is definitely open for Kevin anytime he wants to come back.
Brian: They now have a beautiful little boy. Life is good for Kevin. We really respect his decision and he respects us for wanting to carry on.

The Backstreet Boys single and album will be out in September and October. We’ll keep you posted.

  8. This is fake ! & if it’s not
    I don’t believe that Kevin left because he wanted to
    I think it’s because of Jive

  11. Why on earth would this be a fake? A) They’d get in trouble I imagine B) If they’re gonna fake an interview, why would it be so random as with two guys off the Backstreet Boys?

  12. Of course it’s not a fake, people. Cheeky interviews are me me me’s trademark. Just look at any other ones they’ve done. Like the Dawn French one a few posts before here.

  13. Do you really think people would go to all the bother to make up a fake interview when it could actually get them in serious legal trouble? Don’t be a div.

  15. Creepy Crawly: If journalist would get in trouble just by posting some untrue stories about celebs there would be no tabloids, however now there is a lot of them…. So they really wouldn’t get in trouble by making this up

  16. Lina (and ‘m’), don’t be so stupid. Tabloids don’t make things up, but they sometimes are given not-entirely reliable information. They’re not allowed to make stories up completely and/or make entire interviews up, you retards. Just look at what happens to editors when they grossly mis-report things – THEY GET FIRED! Piers Morgan and Anne Robinson are just two examples. And if small facts are ever proven to be false, they HAVE to print retractions lest they get sued. Honestly, how ridiculous are you??

  17. You can’t fake an interview. You can make up stories by saying ‘a source close to the couple said…’ but you can’t quote people at this length without it being for real. You’d be closed down. This lot are obviously music journos if you look back at the other stuff they’ve done.

  18. If you were going to fake an interview with BSB, wouldn’t you do it with all of them not just two?

  20. The four of them have been splitting up and doing separate radio promos for the last week.

  21. I don’t understand why this is such a controversial interview. They sound nice, seem like they have a good sense of humour and this is typical of a cheeky English interview. They don’t do the whole ‘tell us all about the record and why you are such wonderful people’ over there.

  22. Mmmm … Johnny … I’m afraid you’re being a bit naive with the ol’ tabloids. They do make stuff up, and don’t get into much trouble, either (something to do with the press being self regulating over here). Still Me Me Me doesn’t make things up, and to prove how much integrity they have, they asked the most important question first.

  23. As someone who works for a well-known tabloid, the truth is actually closer to what Johnny and Bernard say. Falseties emerge, but due to misinformation rather than wilful lying. The self-regulation theory is nonsense – if you print something that is proven to be untrue, you have to retract. Usually by printing a teeny apology on the horse fixtures pages or something, but an apology all the same. Sure, ‘angles’ have to be found which often exaggerate the less pertinent bits of a story just to get the readers attention – but come on, a journalist would never, ever make up an interview. Ridiculous notion. You can get in trouble for merely misquoting a celebrity, so the idea that someone would fabricate something like this is beyond stupid, it’s, well stupid.

  24. Dear Someone Who Works in Tabloids … you are having a fucking laugh. Tabloid hacks who make up stories all the time … I believe they refer to it as ‘embellishing’, though.

  25. Who cares?? Someone should let BSB know that if they need a gay singer – Lance Bass is available!! It’s a perfect set-up. Kevin sings bass – so does Lance. BSB has a gay following, so did Nsync. AND Nsync will never reunite. I’m sure everyone but Justin could use the work.

  26. It has been confirmed as real by the boys UK rep.
    I love the interview – Brian is absolutely hilarious, which isn’t surprising.
