PPL are seem afraid in America to accept my guys back…lol ….well they have had to claw their way to the top before so this is nothing new for them its just sad that they have to do it in their home country.

    Haha. I knew this was coming. There is someone that keeps sending in articles that they think make the BSB look bad. MusicMan, are ya going to stop that anytime soon? Anyway, if the BSB would have released their album this week or last week, they would have been number one. They have sold 420, 535 albums in three weeks in the United States alone. Not bad. They are selling well in many other countries too. I can guarantee the guys aren’t too worried about it. They know people still care.

    It’s written in the stars that 2005 is Mariah’s year. Who the hell cares for Cold Play, Foo Fighters, George Strait and all the others? They come, debut high and fall down. It’s Mimi’s Emancipation that is truly rocking. And that’s only with two singles out. U Rock Mariah. If there’s one female singer who’s gonna make Mimi share the spotlight this year, its gonna be another high octave diva! This fall, people!

    The Backstreet Boys are officially the Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, and NKOTB of our generation. They’re boring, unappealing to obviously a great number of people, and should have never attempted to have a comeback when their only notoriety to fame was appealing to zit faced bubble gum teeny boppers for a couple years. They’re has beens, and the only fans they have left come across as deeply disturbed indivduals who can’t let go of the past.
