BREAKING NEWS!!


FROM PEOPLE MAGAZINE:

After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together.

The band's Web site, www.nkotb.com, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks.

The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.

The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early '90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994.

Eighteen years later, they're still "Hangin' Tough." The oldest "Kid," Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band's demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight's brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record.


Not that I care, particularly, but I thought MAYBE one of you might.

I mean, it would be shockingly moronic if someone (say a tween) were to carve Jordan Knight's initials in their arm back in NKOTB's heyday. I don't know anyone irresponsible enough to have done that!!

How...odd. It will be interesting to see how they do. They were pretty big when I was younger but I wasn't really into them.

Okay...I'll say it....I LOVED THEM!!!!! Yes, I went to their concerts more then once, and would love to hear what they would do now. Yeah, I know...

Bethany said...

Oh, and btw, I tagged you for a meme (I know, I know...another one!) so stop by if you have time :)

Kelly are you a secret New Kid's fan? Did you go to the concerts and scream?

Not moronic at all!! Altogether now...whoa whoa oh...hanging tough!

Joey was my favorite - I loved that pre-pubescent high-pitched voice!

The back of my bedroom door was lined with Tiger Beat photos!

I'd go to a concert if they started back up!

Reminds me of the movie Music & Lyrics - one of my new favs!

So is it now safe to admit that a certain 33yr old woman has had "hangin tough" as her ringback tone on her cell phone for over a month now?

Since, for some reason I chose to avoid being a freaky fan of NKOTB when I was a kid. So now I've decided that I can re-live what I missed. Jon will LOVE it if I hang their poster above our bed!!

I LOVED NKOTB!!!!! I had the bed sheets, sleeping bag and nightgown. Even the "barbie" version of them.

However, I don't see me falling in love with them again. We'll have to see...
