I am very excited to announce that some days ago the site was celebrating the 9 year anniversary. 9 years ago, I opened the site without even expecting all the support I’ve gotten from the fans. So huge thank you to everyone, it really makes me happy knowing that you’re all so amazing and we will be supporting the Backstreet Boys and I am going to continue to update everyone on the latest news in the future!

Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter talks about losing 65 pounds and regaining his life.
Every time I hear another story about exercise saving someone’s life, I get a warm feeling inside. The latest comes from Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys. Exercise helped Carter lose 65 pounds. After overcoming addiction and a serious heart condition, he wrote about his travails in his new book, “Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It.”
Tell me about your heart problems. You were only 28. That must have really freaked you out.
I was on tour in Europe, and I was partying every night and really depressed. I ended up in Russia, and I remember I was trying to keep up with the local Russians in drinking games and I was feeling terrible. I couldn’t perform on stage to my usual standards, and afterward I went to the doctor, who told me I had drug- and alcohol-induced cardiomyopathy that was weakening my heart. It was a warning that if I stayed on that path I would die.
That must have been a major wake-up call.
The doctor read me the riot act. It really was life or death for me. He said I needed to stop drinking completely. I was overweight and I needed to change, so I just completely went extreme in the other direction. I wanted to fight for my life, so I sobered up. I quit alcohol for a year and stopped taking drugs. A year later the doctor said he couldn’t see the inflammation in my heart anymore.
What kind of role did exercise play in the change?
Exercise has absolutely been a replacement reward for me. It releases chemicals into your body that make you feel better and think more clearly. Once you know how you feel with a hangover and you compare it to how you feel after a workout, it’s a much better high. Your body doesn’t want to be poisoned with alcohol. Every now and then I have a drink, but I don’t like the way it makes me feel, so I’m still battling it. I’m working toward a future where I just don’t drink at all anymore, drinking less and less and working out more and more and eating better and focusing on my work. Read full article.

Eight studio albums and a prestigious star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are just the beginning for the band as they embark on the next 20 years of their journey.
The Mercury’s DANIELLE MORRIS spoke to Howie D from The Backstreet Boys ahead of their concert with McBusted later this year in Weston-super-Mare.
Hi Howie, what a busy year you have lined up, with the band, your family and potential solo projects, how are you finding time to manage it all?
“It sure is going to be a busy year but we’re really lucky that we all have such supportive families and friends they’re just amazing.
“We also have a great management team who keep us on track, it’s all about looking at the calendar and thinking, right, what can I do and where and then piecing it all together.
“It’s good, I’m lucky to have the boys because there’s no jealousy or holding back, when one of us says that we’re thinking about doing something; there’s so much support there’s a great sense of camaraderie. Read full article.
