MY WEEKEND WAS FANTASTIC BECAUSE OF THE RUMOURS FLYING ABOUT REGARDING THE ‘NSYNC REUNION.

MY MONDAY WAS FANTASTIC BECAUSE OF THIS 15 MINUTES OF JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE + ‘NSYNC MEDLEY OF HITS!

WHY DIDN’T THEY PERFORM MORE ‘NSYNC SONGS LIKE ‘IT’S GONNA BE ME’ OR ‘TEARIN’ UP MY HEART’?

I WANT MORE.

MY IPOD IS CRAZY NOW.

I AM CRAZY NOW.

ALL YOU PEOPLE CAN’T YOU SEE, CAN’T YOU SEE

Took me a while to catch up on the performances on the AMAs.

Here’s one:

NKOTBSB!

Now I know why Nick Carter was trending on Twitter… Everytime he sings “am I sexual?” during Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), he awakens the then-adolescent/teenage girls’ dreams and we all just say “YEAHHH!” It may be really cheesy to watch them do their classic boyband moves – but if they dare to dance, we dare to watch/sing/scream!

According to this, NKOTB and BSB are going on tour together. OMG.

This article made me smile: Statute of limitations on ‘N Sync fans feeling guilty for liking Backstreet Boys officially expired.

82ND ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS

Wow, as most have heard, the Oscars were held yesterday and The Hurt Locker won big! 

The buildup to the Oscars were all about Avatar versus The Hurt Locker since they both have nine nominations each. At the end of the night, The Hurt Locker took home six of them, while director Kathryn Bigelow became the first female director to win Best Director!

 What I liked was the John Hughes tribute! Stars who’ve worked with him (including Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson and Macaulay Culkin) were on stage. Almost the entire Breakfast Club gang was there – Emilio Estevez, where were you?
