You guys, there's a Backstreet Boys movie coming out and we just lost our Scrunchie

So, we're not afraid to admit that "I Want It That Way" was quite the tune, or that we feel like we're somehow woven into Backstreet Boys history (yeah, that's right, we used to hang out with BSB and NSync in the day, because, uh, ballers in Orlando – also, not sure why every paragraph here is doubled on our new web platform, but so nice twice?), but we are sort of afraid of this trailer we just saw via Gawker for A BACKSTREET BOYS DOCUMENTARY. It's called Show 'Em What You're Made Of, apparently, and it seems to focus on the haggard side of being a man in a boy band. So, yeah, gay porn. Anyway, there will likely be jabs at jailed "Big Poppa" Lou Pearlman (millions were stolen, dontcha know) and a whole lot of "let's leave the girls at home" going on here. HOT! Also, this one time, we reported for Bop! Magazine (freelance!) about a certain substance issue situation with A.J. McLean, so we feel like we're in this together. (It's not online, because the '90s. But here's a talk we had with a New Kid on the Block to prove our absolute adherence to teen magazines). At any rate, without further ado, this is what Orlando hath wrought. We deserve everything that we've gotten.
