Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter addressed the perceived rivalry with Justin Timberlake of *NSYNC as both prepare to drop their debut solo albums. Nick tells Radio 1, “First of all, the kind of music I’m doing is more rock/pop and his is more like pop/R&B. So, you know, it’s two different worlds, you know what I’m sayin’? I’m cool with Justin, I’m cool. I ain’t got no problems with him.” He added, “I’m sure everybody’s gonna try to compare it and say ‘ooh, here’s the next rival’. When you start to get involved in the whole rival thing, it tends to take away from the creativity of the music… what you’re doing it for in the first place.”
