In an interview that aired Monday evening on “The Ralphie Show,” Backstreet Boy Nick Carter revealed that he and his fiancé are currently shopping a new reality show to a large cable network.
“Lauren (Kitt) and I are… we’re in negotiations, talking with VH1 right now about possibly doing a reality show based on our wedding,” Carter said.
The program would give viewers a unique perspective on a former teen heartthrob officially exiting the market for good. But as the Backstreet Boys celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year, many fans have also moved on in their personal lives. Even the guys themselves are all married with children… with the exception of Carter.
“The running joke is that everyone says… (all of the Backstreet Boys) have kids except for Nick,” the singer states. “Well, Kevin is actually my dad.”
All kidding aside, the band has a busy summer ahead with the release of In A World Like This and the kickoff of its summer tour, both on July 30. Carter will then release a memoir in the fall, which he hopes will inspire others to overcome some of the demons that he has faced with regards to drug and alcohol abuse. There will of course be a marriage, and maybe a reality show mixed in. Through it all, it doesn’t seem the Backstreet Boys are planning on leaving the spotlight.
“In relation to other artists out there, I think our fans are kind of like KISS fans,” Carter noted. “They don’t care about anybody else out there. They love what we represent. It’s a great relationship that we have.”
Carter credits the fans and that relationship with the 20 year existence of BSB, and he wasn’t finished comparing their situation to others.
“There’s some groups out there that don’t even care, and take 10 years off, and then all of the sudden they come back,” the Backstreet Boy said – perhaps taking a dig at 98 Degrees, who basically did exactly that for the group’s recent reunion on “The Package Tour.” “This isn’t a reunion tour. We’ve been touring and making albums consistently even since Kevin left.”
Life & Style Weekly reports that Kelly Osbourne is engaged. Editor Laura Lane also talked about the recent yacht party that Rihanna threw while touring on “The Ralphie Show.”
Not every Taylor Swift relationship ends with a breakup song. Example: Swift’s friendship with Parachute lead singer Will Anderson.
“I don’t know. I honestly don’t,” Anderson responded on “The Ralphie Show” when asked whether he is the subject of a song on her last album Red. The general consensus among some “Swifties” is that he is the “nice guy” the singer speaks of in “Begin Again.” “We don’t really talk about that stuff… we talk about professional stuff. I’ll ask her advice on things but when it comes to what songs are about, we just let those be.”
Anderson just hung out with the songstress last week.
“It’s fun to hang with somebody who does the same thing you do,” he said. “It’s also fun because she can give me advice on anything our band can possibly be going through; she’s already done it. Even though she’s a little bit younger than us, she’s the biggest artist in the world right now.”
Parachute’s next album, Overnight, is complete and due out August 13. Don’t expect any songs on their about Swift.
“She knows better than that,” Anderson said before joking, “She wishes, but no!”
The album’s current single from that album, “Can’t Help,” was co-written by Anderson and Ryan Tedder.
“We originally had CeeLo Green in mind,” the singer revealed. “We said, ‘We can’t give this one away.’”
Tedder didn’t mind. Meanwhile, Anderson never did get a song to Green, but he’s pretty sure “The Voice” coach is “winning in life, so it’s good.”
