— For The Boys —
“I just want to say, keep on being amazing and making more music, boys! You five are my heroes and I want you all to rock on some more! You guys are so inspiring and awesome!”
“You’re one of the most influential bands of our time and you help so many fans deal with their own demons so this speak with your music. You have changed my life and still change everyone’s lives keep strong and making great music. Love you all so much.”
“I will always love you guys no matter what and I refuse to stop being a fan. I can never get enough of your music no matter what mood I am in I think what song can I play I do like the new song Don’t Go Breaking My Heart so I play the video over and over. You guys have beautiful families and I am so happy for you guys that you guys have found someone in your lives. I am looking forward to the new album coming out can’t wait.”
“I just love you all! I have been a fan since I was 10 years old. I remember my mom taking me to the store and freaking out when I saw you boys on a magazine cover and I just had to get it. I grew up with you guys. I am now 33 years old and am more in love with you than ever. Your music has been been with my through every up, down, sadness or laughter. I love the fact that I feel like I am apart of your lives since I grew up wth you guys and have you grow from boys to men and husbands. I cant wait to continue on this journey and grow with you boys even more.”
“So I just wanna say thanks to Nick Carter. He was the first member to tweet me and follow me. He obviously didnt have to do either one of those things and to be able to say I got it is truly amazing. I just want to say how special that made me feel and how its the little things in life that can make someone feel like a super star. So Nick thank you for being so kind and sweet.”
“I want the boys to know how much, they mean to me. I am not sure where I would if it they never came into my life. Thank you guys, I love you.”
“Thank you for always being the sweet, humble, compassionate, down to earth, understanding guys that you are, not just to me, but to other fans around the world. I love you guys, but not because you’re famous, or because you’re celebrities, but because you are all humans, and for the men you are in your hearts, with hearts of gold. Please don’t ever change who you are inside because you’re loved just the way you are, flaws and all. To me, you’re like the big brothers, the friends I never had growing up, and whenever I was hurting, feeling sad, upset etc, you were the ones I turned to, having put my BSB cd’s in and listened to your angelic , comforting, soothing voices, healing me, and healing my soul, especially during my time being bullied to the point I wanted to change myself just to be accepted and liked, but through music, you guys, especially Howie came through and saved me from myself and from my bullies. The song “What Makes U Different (Makes U Beautiful)” written by Howie, sung by Howie and Brian with the rest of you harmonizing beautifully, teaching me I don’t need to change for anyone because I’m beautiful because of my differences, and I felt as if you guys were sing/taling to me through that song, and whenever I’m having a moment where I’m having thoughts of not feeling beautiful or good enough, I always remember that song what you guys taught me through it and I feel better. I’ll always hold What Makes U Different (Makes U Beautiful), and all 5 of you in a special place in my heart, because I am eternally grateful for what you did for me. You’ll always be the ones to hold me and make sure that I’ll be alright, the ones I’ll run to, the ones to take me from darkness to light, my heroes from heaven above sent by God and I thank him for giving me the 5 of you. I love you guys and I always will.”
“Been a fan for years, experienced my first meet and greet in Vegas. The boys were so genuine, answered every question and I didn’t feel rushed at my meet and greet. Here’s to U.K. tour in May.”
“After so many years, still got it going on! How amazing is that?!? Thank you for not letting the hardships of life change your kind, passionate, loving and humble hearts! For never letting us down. God bless you guys and your beautiful families! We love you guys!”
“I have been a fan of the boys since I was 6 or 7. Millennium was the first CD I ever received for Christmas. I kind of fell off while I was in middle and high school, but rediscovered them again earlier this year. The boys, especially Kevin, have always made me feel so special, even though I have never met them. I got to see them for the first time live a month ago, and it was the best day ever. I still think about that day and look at my pictures of that day often. I listen to their music, both band and solo stuff, daily. My two absolute favorite songs are Crawling Back To You, and Drowning. I have always had a sweet spot for Kevin, but I love Howie and Brian as well. Nick and AJ are awesome as well, but didn’t grab my attention when I was a kid. All 5 guys are supremely talented, and I am proud to say I have been a fan for 17 years. Nick, AJ, Kevin, Howie, and Brian: Thank you for 25 years of amazing music, dance routines, and just for being yourselves. Thank you for opening your music lives to us, and I am so happy to say that I am a BSB fan for life. Thank you for the music boys, and here’s to 25 more years!”
“They all have been unbelievably kind in the past but there was one particular time that stands out the most. They were unknowingly staying at the same hotel I was. My friends and I were walking out of the hotel restaurant as they were leaving. I couldn’t even get the words out of my mouth to tell my friends to look…all I could do was hit my friends arm. Nick saw my jaw drop and waved at me to come over. Every single one of them took their time to chat (and take selfies) with me even though they were being rushed into their car. Those few minutes made my day…and showed how much respect they have for their fans!”
“Thank you for sticking around and being here for us, we do appreciate you being here for 25 years and going strong.”
” I appreciate the backstreet boys in a lot of ways, they are so inspiring to so many fans. They are so humble & kind.”
“I want to shout out Brian who my sister and I ran into backstage in Alpharetta last year. Not only was he super sweet and took time out to talk to us and get a picture, but he was super kind when my sister accidentally spilled his drink on him when she went in for a hug. He laughed it off and had the biggest smile on his face. So thank you Brian for being your kind, humble self!”
“Since the very day I saw you performing We’ve got it goin’ on on TV I knew there was something special in you. I didn’t expect something so strong and beautiful though! An amazing adventure of a lifetime. You’re my big brothers. You’re really like family. You inspire me, support me and encourage me just thanks to your music and who you are. You help me bear my ups and downs. Your voices are delicious whirlwinds in my veins and I feel so good after listening to you. I’ve not had the chance to meet you but I hope one day I see you performing and have a meet and greet.
Thanks to you I overcame psychological violence which led me to drive again. So, thanks to you I won freedom. What a delicious feeling! Also, I still cling to my dream thanks to you : “what kind of work? Hard work”. So I work hard and try not to lose hope.
Thank you for all what you give to us. Thank you for inspiring us. I read comments of fans about other fans, all are so positive. Your fans are your image: love and respect.
I wanna kiss and hug you all. Proud of you. Proud to be a fan. KTBSPA!”
“Thank you so much for all of your beautifull music. To me it has been a lifesaver (litterally). Thank you for all the time you take out of your (family)lives to continue this rollercoaster ride and make all of is fans scream with Joy. Can’t wait to see and hear you live again.”
“Thank you guys so much! Your music has helped me through so much in life. When my grandpa passed away in 2000, Show Me (The Meaning of Being Lonely) helped me. Then when my granny died in 2011, Never Gone helped me. Thank y’all so much! I love y’all!”
“Ever since day 1 the boys have helped me through every rough and great situation I have had. From their songs (group or solo) to even their interviews. I love every song they have came out with and will continue to love them for years to come. Thank you for being there for me to listen to and see and dance to. KTBSPA!!”
“I have been your fan for 18 years, they have been years of great music and unforgettable moments. Each of your songs brings back beautiful memories, your music is my inspiration and my consolation in bad times.
During this time I have seen you grow as artists and as persons, and I can only say that I am very proud of you. One of my favorite things in the world is to see you happy, enjoying doing your work on stage and in the studio when you are recording new music.
Thank you for 25 years of dedication and passion, for the sacrifice that you make when you have to leave your families at home for going to make us happy. Thank you for every hour of work in the studio to creat the great songs that make us happy, thanks for every rehearsal to give us a great show, thank you for every smile, for every hug, for every I love you, for every handshake, for each photo that you share in Instagram, thank you for letting us be part of your life as you are of ours.
Just thanks for being so special as you are and for giving so much love to all the fans in the world. I love you very much, it’s a pleasure and an honor be your fan, lets go for more years together.”
— For The Fans —
“To the girl who was at the M&G in Vegas on July 28th, 2018 in group A and was crying after meeting the guys… I think she was the last of the group… girl, that’s the sprint of a true BSB fan… it moves me so much… I think it’s fantastic, I totally get you and KTBSPA!”
“My friend and I went to our first ever BSB show on August 11, and the I swear that the queue to get into the venue was so incredibly polite. (I go to librarian conferences, so I know a pleasant queue when I’m in one.) Everyone was absolutely on board with making sure that parties stayed together, and there were smiling faces all around. Then, after we found our seats, the young woman next to us was chatting with us and her response when we told her it was our first show after being longtime fans was an absolutely joyful “Oh! I am SO happy for you!” Since I’ve gone to shows for other artists where the die hard fans weren’t so nice, it was a pretty cool experience.”
“Thank you to my BSB family for always being there when I need you and GETTING IT. It being my love for the boys. And thanks for being calm and kind at events!”
“Thank you to the fans who do nice things for other fans. Like holding a spot in line and watching stuff while another fan goes to the bathroom. I saw a girl holding up a light over the portable toilet when we all camped out for GMA to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Fans offered each other water and food while waiting. Looking out for each other is something that unites us and will continue to unite us. Proud to be part of this fandom!”
— For The BSB Team —
“Having Kat on the BSB team has truly improved the customer experience. She is professional. She has phenomenal customer service skills. And she understands the fan experience (and what we want), which makes SUCH A DIFFERENCE. So thankful for Kat!”
“Thank you to Jess, Jen, and Kat for being so sweet to us!! Also all of the BSB bodyguards- you rock and we love you!”
— For The BSB Wives —
“Thank you for sharing your husbands with all of us. And thank you for the love you share with him. I’m just so happy each of the guys have found their special someone.”
“Just want to say thank you to the BsBWives for everything they do. Because everyone knows that behind every strong man is an even stronger women 😉 You ladies share your men with the whole world. You have to put up with so much crap from certain “fans”. We never say it enough, but thank you for making the boys better men because you you all. Thank you for making the boys so happy. And thank you for sharing your men with us everyday.”
“Lauren is always in Nick’s corner and defends him like a lioness. She has to fight the hardest against certain fans and I wish I just had half of that courage and strength she has!”
“Leighanne is such a sweetheart and always polite and tries to make you feel super special when you meet her. Thank you for sharing yor husband with all of us and thank you for knowing that we’re not all a bunch of crazies!”
