Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter just joined a growing list of men in entertainment being accused of sexual misconduct. Melissa Schuman of the early 2000’s girl group Dream has accused Nick of raping her in a lengthy personal blog post recounting the ordeal.

Charlie Puth made his debut on “Drop The Mic” Tuesday night. The singer might be an even worse rapper than Liam Payne, but he still held his own in a five-on-one contest against all five members of the boy band. Charlie went back and forth with Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson. He kicked things off against Nick Carter, who must be glad the show was pre-taped given the latest allegations against him.
Charlie Puth is the latest celeb to showcase his unfortunate hip-hop sensibilities for “Drop The Mic” on TBS. The show hosted by Hailey Baldwin already saw Liam Payne prove that he should stick to singing. Now, it’s giving Charlie a chance to embarrass himself in front of boy band icons, the Backstreet Boys.
The 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.
Hailee Steinfeld may have been the first performer to let the world know she’s ready for Tuesday night’s Jingle Ball show, but she wasn’t the last. On the day of the show, several stars are taking to social media to share how excited they are to be headed to Dallas for the first night of the annual holiday event.
Fifth Harmony tweeted about being amped for the show. Dinah Jane Hansen ran into AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys at the Dallas airport and showed up on his social feeds. The two talked about getting ready for the show and how their age gap feels in the vid. Former Backstreet collaborator Meghan Trainor also shared a pic of herself and boyfriend,Darryl Sabara on their way to the show.

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