Nick Carter And The Backstreet Boys Aren’t Impressed By Justin Bieber Or One Direction

Nick Carter And The Backstreet Boys Think Justin Bieber Is Lame, One Direction Is Boring featureThe Backstreet Boys sat down with Elle to discuss its new Vegas residency and shared their thoughts on the new wave of boy bands and young men singing and dancing their ways to the top of the charts. Apparently, Nick Carter thinks Justin Bieber’s bad boy image is bunch of bull.

“I’ll tell you this: There is some shit that AJ and I both did that I’m really glad that social media wasn’t around for,” Nick said. “Because Justin Bieber couldn’t hold a candle to what we did.”

“We would have been like TMZ’s saving grace, bro,” AJ added, “just anything from me being drunk or irate at a club. Or me walking naked down the hallway in a hotel for no apparent reason.” AJ went on to say that the Backstreet Boys didn’t have nearly an easy time as Justin in their rise to fame.

“But, the fame now—it’s like night and day,” he said. “Without social media, without YouTube, without instant access, we had to do everything grassroots. We had to do every interview, every radio show, every outlet. We had to go to every country—that was the only way to do it. There was no Instagram, or posting things on YouTube to get a record deal.”

Backstreet apparently isn’t impressed with Justin’s career or his partying. But he isn’t the only one who has them yawning. The pop icons turned Vegas installations are apparently bored by One Direction, too.

The Backstreet Boys Approve Of Joe Jonas’ Tribute

Backstreet Boys Approve Of Joe Jonas HomageJoe Jonas may be a part of one of the most famous boy bands of all time, but he knows how to pay respect to his forefathers. Even though he’s moved on to his new band DNCE, he’s still in touch with his boy band roots. As proof, Joe posted a video of himself recreating the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way,” and the Backstreet Boys took notice.

In the short clip, Joe is mimicking the classic all-white look the boy band wears in the song’s music video. As he stands on a cliff overlooking the sea, Joe serves up his best sultry face as he extends a hand to the camera. The Backstreet Boys retweeted the video with a comment expressing their approval.

But the real question might be what Joe is doing in the monochromatic getup at the beach with Cole Whittle.

Check out what the Backstreet Boys had to say about Joe’s vid below.
