TheSevenSees.com interviewed the Backstreet Boys on Tuesday to talk about their documentary. The interview is in three parts.
The biggest-selling boy band of all time, Backstreet Boys have never been more honest and revealing about where they are in their now 22-year-long career than in their new documentary, Show ’Em What You’re Made Of. Opening in theaters (and also available on iTunes and VOD) on Friday, January 30, the documentary paints a revealing picture of AJ, Howie, Nick, Brian and Kevin’s lives onstage and off, as they reminisce, write music and prep for the 2013 release of both their album, In a World Like This, and subsequent reunion tour.
Through vintage footage, unguarded moments and more access to the band than has ever been available before, Show ’Em What You’re Made Of is a record of where the BSBs have been, where they’re going and why we still love them so very much.
We stopped fanning out long enough to grill Nick Carter on staying passionate about music, keeping five alpha male egos in check and a zombie Western movie he’s written for himself.
What made you guys want to do the documentary in the first place?
NICK CARTER: I brought the idea to the guys when Kevin returned to the band, but we hadn’t recorded any new music yet. I’d seen the Tribe Called Quest documentary, which really rekindled my love for that group. I said, “Guys, maybe we could do the same thing.” We decided to dedicate it to our fans because they’re the reason we still have a career. We’re always grateful and appreciative of that and of them.
Happy Birthday Nick! I hope you have a wonderful day and will enjoy this video. Thanks to many fans from around the world for helping make this video possible! The video is best viewed in full screen.
Update: Nick saw the video! Check out his tweet.
Tomorrow is Nick’s 35th birthday and I’ll be posting our project then, but several of you asked about taking part of the project even if you didn’t meet Nick. Here’s what I got planned for everyone to take part tomorrow.
Since the birthday project is our way to thank Nick for all the events and meet & greets he did last year I decided to include a hashtag to the mix. We want to get Nick trending on Twitter with #ThankYouNick. Did you met him? You can thank him for that. Did his music inspire you or helped you in anyway? You can thank him for that. You can thank Nick for anything you want just remember to use the #ThankYouNick hashtag. There’s no set time that we want to start this you start whenever tomorrow. Don’t just type #ThankYouNick we want him to see that you actually have something to thank him for.
Also, don’t over due it. Last week when Nick was on his twitter replying to fans many had their account suspended for spamming him. Tweeting him the same thing many times over and over. We wouldn’t want that to happen. Several tweets throughout the day should be fine in avoiding this.
Don’t forget to let other fans know about the hashtag for tomorrow!
P.S. My friend Sara has her own Nick bday project called #NicksGiving. Check it out on her site! It’s an awesome idea!
