Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean Jammin' Out to BSB

10/24/2015 12:10 AM PDT

A.J. McLean got to relive his Backstreet Boys glory days in front of a hard-partying crowd ... all thanks to a '90s cover band.

McLean hit up a '90s Throwback Party at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood Thursday night and when a '90s cover band started playing the BSB hit "Everybody," McLean went nuts.

Check out the video ... A.J. kills it on air guitar.

Backstreet's back ... sorta.

6/4/2015 4:38 PM PDT

He's already golfed with Bruce Jenner ... but now, Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean says he wants to get Caitlyn on the links too ... and hopefully emerge victorious this time! 

A.J. has been golfing for years -- and actually played a round with Bruce (back when she was Bruce) at Jenner's home course at Sherwood Country Club a while back. 

McLean says Bruce kicked his ass back in the day ... and now he's looking for some long-awaited revenge -- which he'll be HAPPY to take out on Caitlyn. 

Check out the clip ... McLean is super supportive of his old friend ... but keep your eyes peeled for ANOTHER celebrity cameo. 

Backstreet Boys Baptized and Muddy in Israel

6/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT

Two Backstreet Boys had an emotionally charged experience in the Holy Land of Israel by taking a plunge into a river made famous by Jesus himself.

Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell, along with his wife Leighanne Littrell, all took a blessed bath in the Jordan River as part of a baptism ceremony.

You see Brian in the video break down during the ritual.

The band is on tour in Israel where they took a break for a mud bath in the Dead Sea with wine in hand.

Check out the gallery for all the holy happenings in underground Christian corridors and King Herod’s royal thrones … but not the type of throne you think.

Backstreet Boys We Got Our Music Back!

Backstreet Boys have finally scored legal victory ... snagging the rights to the master recording of one of their biggest songs in a battle that raged on for years.

The "Boys" have been battling ex-manager Lou Pearlman's bankruptcy estate ... and it was agreed this week they'd get the masters to some of their songs -- including "I'll Never Break Your Heart."

The Boys claimed they were owed nearly $3.5 mil ... but the bankruptcy trustee for Lou's case said they lacked the proof to back up that claim.  A judge ordered both sides to work it out earlier this year ... and according to court docs, they did just that.

So the boy band will receive $99K ... as well as possession of some master recordings -- including a few lesser known songs and live recordings.

They also received a VHS copy of "Star Trek Adventure" ... whatever that is.

Good luck finding a VHS player.

Backstreet Boys Praying For Both Sides and Vowing To Return to Middle East

7/30/2014 12:30 AM PDT

The Backstreet Boys love their fans in Israel, but they love their families more -- which is why they regretfully cancelled a bunch of concerts there, according to A.J. McLean ... who's standing firm on NOT choosing a side in the conflict.

We saw McLean in Malibu Tuesday and he explained that if the cease fires had held, BSB might have gone through with what would've been their first shows ever in Israel this week. 

A.J. reveals when they're planning to reschedule, and adds he's praying for both sides, because ... "You can't pick a side." 

Not all boy banders agree with A.J. on that.

Backstreet Boys Israeli Concerts Cancelled

The Backstreet Boys have cancelled concerts in Tel Aviv ... for obvious reasons.

The band says the July 29-31 shows have been cut from their schedule -- but they're optimistically trying to re-book for next year.

The band follows in the footsteps of Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Paul Anka ... who also cancelled their concerts in the wake of the escalating Middle-East conflict.

Backstreet says, "This is a major disappointment for the band and fans as this was to be our first visit to Israel and we looked forward to meeting our fans."

Backstreet Boys Sweden Pays Us Like Rock Stars

5/23/2014 12:40 AM PDT

The Backstreet Boys haven't had a huge hit in years ... but they're still earning 1990s-sized paychecks.

Sources close to BSB say they just collected close to $750K to star in a Swedish commercial ... singing a version of "Larger Than Life" ... for a Swedish warehouse store.

Brian Littrell tells us the guys divided the spoils evenly -- so, if you do the math, that's $150K a piece.  Brian pocketed extra cash.. because he was the co-writer of the tune.

The commercial shows them slaving away in a warehouse when they suddenly break into song.

Now here's the hook ... they changed the lyrics from "larger than life" to "lager than life."  Lager means warehouse in Swedish.

Swedish humor ... it's not that funny.

Backstreet Boys Knee Deep in ... Wives and Children

Screaming girls were replaced with screaming babies yesterday when the Backstreet Boys arrived in Germany for the latest stop on their tour.

Trading groupies for families ... they want it that way.

Brian Littrell's House More Baller Than You Think

9/23/2013 12:30 PM PDT

Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell is sticking it to everyone hating on the tiny West Hollywood home he just sold -- cause it was only a back-up ... to his PHAT MANSION!!

Turns out Brian and his wife are also sitting on a 15,000 square foot palace in Georgia that's straight outta "Gone with the Wind" -- but better, 'cause this place has a lake, a recording studio AND tennis court.

Still don't hate your life? It also has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms ... on 39 FREAKIN' ACRES!!

Brian's wife Leighanne says they only sold the WeHo spot because they weren't going to be there for months at a time.

Why would they be?

Backstreet Boys Brian Littrell Sells NOT Larger-Than-Life House

Backstreet Boys' Brian Littrell -- a devout Christian  -- could be putting a little something extra in the collection basket this Sunday ... because he sold his West Hollywood bungalow.

Yeah, we were thinking the same thing.  It's .... nice.

Brian snagged $1.14 mil for the cute little palace. He paid $725,000 in 2002 ... so he did ... ok.

What to say?  Well, the kitchen's nice. 

Backstreet Boys Fans Still Lining Up AROUND THE BLOCK

4/22/2013 12:40 PM PDT

Everybody, Backstreet's back ... like it's the year 2000 ... because this weekend, hordes of fans lined up around the block outside an L.A. theater just to catch a glimpse of the iconic boy band.

Sure, they were probably mostly women aged 30-40 ... but it still counts.

FYI, the Backstreet Boys were celebrating their 20th anniversary (yes, you're old) at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood Saturday ... and fans were invited to attend for free ... which explains the shockingly huge line.

Fans were also invited to take photos with the band, but that privilege cost $150.

Impressive, but it's still nothing like the old days ...

Nick Carter to AJ McLean Mind If I Hit You in the Nuts ... With a Baseball Bat?

The Backstreet Boys are still a bunch of jackasses ... just ask Nick Carter, who went Johnny Knoxville all over AJ McLean's balls today ... WITH A BASEBALL BAT ... and it was all caught on tape.

The stunt took place during a photo shoot with celeb photographer Tyler Shields. We really have no other explanation for why this happened.

Now ... here are a couple of our favorite BSB songs ... Quit Playin' Games (With My Testicles), Ball I Have to Give, and Everybody (Backstreet's Sack).

And we can't forget our favorite album ... Black & Blue ... or is it Unbreakable? Okay, we're done.

A.J. McLean Ryan Gosling Coulda Been a Backstreet Boy

1/14/2013 2:45 PM PST

Ryan Gosling could've ... and SHOULD'VE ... been a member of the Backstreet Boys -- this according to actual Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean.

FYI -- McLean and Gosling go WAYYYY BACK ... they were friends when they lived in the same apartment building when Backstreet was first getting together ... right around the time Gosling joined the "Mickey Mouse Club."

Gosling recently gave an interview saying he used to tell A.J. he didn't think the band had a shot in hell of making it big, 'cause it seemed like a New Kids ripoff ... obviously, Gosling was wrong.

When BB blew up, Gosling says he tried to reach out to A.J. (probably to kiss his ass and beg for a job) ... but McLean never returned his calls.

But this weekend, A.J. says it MUST have been a misunderstanding -- insisting he never INTENTIONALLY blew off The Gos ... he just doesn't have Ryan's digits.

In fact, A.J. says he wants Gosling to join the group -- saying Ryan not only has a killer voice, but he's damn handsome to boot (duh).

We're guessing Gos will probably turn down the offer ... he's doing pretty well on his own.
