Howie appeared on Los Angeles radio station KIIS 102.7 FM on December 19th. According to fan and listener DawnJElmer, Howie said he was spending the holidays in Florida with his family. JoJo, the DJ, said he wanted to have a song on the new Backstreet Boys album and Nsync album. Howie reiterated that BSB are back together and will start recording on January 10th. JoJo told Howie that he had someone on the line that wanted to talk to him; it was Joey Fatone of Nsync. The two talked about recording and shared a few laughs. Joey playfully gave Howie a hard time about how BSB beat Nsync “to the punch with recording next year & that BSB was always beating them with everything.” Howie playfully shot back and said something about how BSB focuses on music but haven’t put out anything for the past 3 years while Nsync tends to focus on putting out ‘stuff’ (i.e. dolls, lip balm, merchandise, DVDs). Howie also confirmed that BSB are once again managed by Johnny Wright. He acknowledged that Nsync are still managed by him as well, and said that maybe the two groups can do something together in the future. Read more.

On December 18th, Howie Dorough phoned into Los Angeles station 102.7 KIIS-FM. DawnJElmer from the Backstreet Boys Mature Fan Club summarized the conversation. She says: “That was too funny. I loved it when Joey from ‘N Sync brought up the bit about Howie doing the voice of Santa in Dora The Explorer. Howie seemed so embarrassed about that & about ready to kill him. Howie also said he is leaving tomorrow to go back to FL & is moving all his things back home so sounds like he will be there for quite a while. He also mentioned about the BSB’s new cd, about his cruise & also the thing he is doing in New York in Feb. He brought up the thing with Johnny Wright too so it definitely is true since I heard it myself. That’s all I can think of right now. Maybe someone else will have more to say. I was so thrilled to hear Howie. It totally made my day hearing his beautiful voice. I love that man.”

Howie Discusses The Radio Music Awards & Backstreet Boys

Tonight, JoJo (DJ for Los Angeles’ KIIS-FM 102.7) is interviewing tons of celebrities who are participating in the Radio Music Awards which airs Monday the 27th on NBC. One of the people I heard JoJo talk to on the air was Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys. JoJo said that during the Radio Music Awards, he and Nick Carter would be doing a special presentation, probably a tribute to Michael Jackson, in which the video for ‘What More Can I Give’ will be played during the show. JoJo was asking Howie to give him some dirt on Nick to try to embarrass him during the show. Howie brought up Nick’s smelly feet. Then JoJo asked Howie about the status of Backstreet Boys. He said the he’s been hanging out with Nick all weekend and talked to all the guys this past week, including Kevin who’s all the way in London. Howie said that all the guys are ready to end the hiatus and get back in the studio. The five of them discussed the time frame for 2004. They’re not sure if they’re going to release the solo albums first and then the group album or the group album and then the solo albums. The break was especially beneficial to Brian. JoJo agreed. Howie said it would have been horrible for Brian to be touring during the first year of his child’s life. So he’s glad Brian got to enjoy that at home. JoJo also interviewed Michelle Branch, Staci Orrico, Joey McIntyre, Loon, and more. All of these people and more will be appearing at the Radio Music Awards, which airs on Monday, October 27th on NBC at 9/8pm.
