A few weeks ago, Nick Carter was presented with the StarShrine Award from StarShrine Magazine. He also did a short interview for them. The Backstreet Boys star said his new album will be toned down a little, while ‘Now or Never’ was full of experimenting. Nick said that most artists experiment behind the scenes and he just experimented in front of everyone. He also talked about how he and Tommy Lee have been doing lots of writing and whatnot. The StarShrine rep asked him about his piercings. He said he got both nipples pierced. She asked him for pictures and he said that fans will get them soon enough. For the award, Nick thanked his fans for supporting him through these tough times (this is probably a reference to the Jane and Bob Carter situation).
