    ↳ Celebrity Day

    On July 24th, 2001, *NSYNC released their third and final album, Celebrity. Though it sold significantly less than their previous effort, No Strings Attached, it still managed to move 1.8 million units in its first week of sales and ranks right below No Strings Attached for the record of Fastest Selling Album in the US. The album spawned 3 hit singles (“Pop”, “Gone”, and “Girlfriend”) as well as 2 tours (the PopOdyssey and Celebrity Tours) and is notable for having 10 out of its 13 tracks written by group members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, with the addition of a solitary track penned by founding member Chris Kirkpatrick on foreign editions of the album.

    PopOdyssey and Celebrity were the only two times I got to see *NSYNC live. At the time, PO was the best concert seat I’d ever gotten (I was on the floor at the stadium, about… 15-20 rows back from the stage?), and when I went to the Celebrity tour, I was up in the balcony.

    Both were great, great shows, and I’m glad I got to see them. The bittersweetness about them both is that A.) it was *NSYNC’s last two tours, and B.) both venues that I saw them at (Texas Stadium and Reunion Arena) were both demolished a few years back.

  3. "When [*NSYNC] first got together, I didn’t have a girlfriend, I was dating a couple girls. I pulled the guys into a room, one at a time, and told them I got a girl pregnant. And I told each guy a different girl. They all sat in the room for about an hour, ‘cause we were just starting up, and they were like, “Man, this is really gonna put a hamper on things.” And JC was like, “Yeah, I can’t believe he got Miranda pregnant.” And the others were like, “Miranda? You mean Monica.” “Monica?” They all had different names. It was pretty classic. They beat the crap out of me."

  5. Windy City Times: You guys are playing San Francisco Pride June 27 [2010]. Why is it important for the Backstreet Boys to support the gay community?

    Brian: Well first off, it’s a huge thing. Many years ago these things used to be shunned and pushed aside, and I think that America is a country where you are free to make choices and do what you want with your life. The Backstreet Boys are in support of you choosing the lifestyle that you live and it’s no big deal and we are not here to condemn or to judge, we are just here to love and to support. We make music that works for gentlemen, for young ladies, for grandparents, for kids. We stand for the freedom of choice, the freedom to live the life that you want to live and that’s why we want to be there. We were asked to be the grand marshals and we thought that it was a wonderful opportunity for us, so why not? [x]
