Joey Fatone: Just Joking About Backstreet Boys Touring For Money

Joey Fatone selfie

Joey Fatone tells Wonderwall that he was just joking when he told the Huffington Post the Backstreet Boys are touring again because “they just need the money.” BSB’s Nick Carter responded to the comment on Twitter, saying, “Just disappointed, I really liked Joey… I’m proud of who we are and love what we stand for. Truthfully its about not letting our fans down. Sorry bro but you have us all wrong.”

Speaking at KIIS-FM’s annual Wango Tango concert at the StubHub Center in Carson, California earlier this month, the *NSYNC star clarified, “It was all a joke. It was all nothing but my sense of humor.” As for Carter’s hurt feelings, Joey said, “Nick is awesome. He’s great and the minute it happened, I sent him a text and said, ‘You know I’m joking, right?’ And he said, ‘I actually played into it.’ I didn’t think it was going to come out the way it did.”

Zayn Malik in Miami

Zayn Malik of One Direction says prior to meeting fiance Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, he was looking for a partner who was a good listener and took time to hear what he had to say. “[I'm looking for] A good listener who takes interest in what you say,” the 21-year-old said, according to Star magazine. “If they take time out to speak to you, it’s attractive.”

One Direction Behind The Scenes In Miami

One Direction backstage in Miami

One Direction posted a clip highlighting their tour stop in Miami, Florida, featuring several comments from fans and the group members Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne.

“It’s a nice opportunity to actually meet the fans,” Louis said about the group’s backstage meet and greet.

Talking about the tropical locale, Harry said, “Great place. Weather is amazing and the people are amazing.”

Zayn remarked about the boys performing live, “When we’re on stage and we get to perform for our fans and we get to see all of our fans in one place, enjoying our music and having fun, that’s definitely the best part of our job.”

As for the on-stage wardrobe requirements, Liam explained, “We’ve got to do a load of quick changes on the show, which is getting changed as fast as you can in a few seconds, so that’s quite fun, but having five people in a room, they’re usually quite small rooms, so you’re kind of bashing off people and stuff trying to get yourself ready. The first tour was a lot worse, those were super quick changes. I went out one time and I hadn’t got my shoes tied just to get on stage.”

As for how things have changed for Zayn since the group started out, he said, “The only thing that really changes for me as far as a band or whatever, I was massively gut wrenchingly nervous whenever I was going to do something on stage, but now it’s transferred from nerves into excitement, and I’m more excited and buzzed up to go on stage, but I still get the same rush and I still get the same buzz.”

Watch the highlights via YouTube below.

Cody Simpson Is Just Talking Foam & Figerglass In His ‘Surfboard’ Single

Cody Simpson 2014

Cody Simpson tells MTV News his new single ‘Surfboard’ doesn’t borrow the innuendo displayed by Beyonce’s use of “Surfboart” in her ‘Drunk In Love’ song. “I think Beyonce kind of made surfboard a sexual innuendo that people wouldn’t necessarily have picked up on if my song had come out without her using that term,” the Australian pop singer explained. “I’ve been writing about surfboards my whole life. All of my albums have been ‘Surfer’s Paradise’ or something like that, so I mean honestly I had the idea. I love Beyonce’s album, I love that song and I was like if there was any time to release that song it was now since this term is a part of pop culture, which is exciting for me being a surfer myself.”
