WTF Are You Wearing?

So maybe this article shouldn’t be called What the F#ck Are You Wearing so much as What th3 F#ck Are You Doing. Every week that goes by, there is the new comeback/reunion/last performances ever story that is being spearheaded by some artist(s) trying to grasp on to that last 15 minutes so desperately that they had so long ago. In our books, however, desperation is never, ever a good look.

We don’t mean to single a sex out, but often than not it’s the women who are aiming to keep hold of what they once were when they were young –  and with the way the film and music industry uses up young women and then discards them as they age, it’s almost understandable. But still, whether you’re a man or women, clinging to a career is one thing. Clinging onto your youth as you age is something else entirely.

That being said, the Backstreet Boys are not boys anymore. Put on some suits for god sakes and stop trying to look like you’re still 18.

The backstreet boys are guys with real talent and deserve to share it with the rest of the world. They rocked 16 years ago, almost 17 years now non-stop in the music business, and still are totally the bomb. They aren't oldies, so the clothes they're wearing matches perfectly on them. <3 KEEP(ing) THE BASKTREET PRIDE ALIVE!!!! <3

i think the rest of the comments made prove the point that they are not past there prime i can see y non backstreet fan could see this as a come back but true fans know that they have never gone. In fact i think that the gaps between album realises amplifies there sucess as it takes them so long to tour with a new album(over a year to be exact) being a fan i have been to many gigs and have seem thousands of fans the numbers just prove their sucess!! Keep the backstreet pride alive!!!!!!!!

What. A jackass. Dude, you know if Justin Timberlake (a boybander who is REALLY past his prime) was spotted wearing the same thing, you'd be drooling all over him and calling him fashionable and hip. Whereas that douchebag wears whatever wigga attire Timbaland tells him to wear while trying to convince the American public he's "urban" and "edgy", whether he's wearing old man chic for golfing or going all K-Fed with his "urban" schtick. I don't understand the flack dished at BSB. They're talented guys, one of the few decent vocal groups to stick around in recent years, and why the hell should they be wearing suits? Is a photo op all of a sudden a board meeting? Are we discussing current statistics of the average American fashion critic a-hole? And no, they're not past their prime. They fucking rock. Suck on that. KTBPA.

SERIOUSLY!!! First of all this can't be a comeback/reunion/last performances ever story because the Backstreet Boys NEVER WENT AWAY!! I suggest all you writers out there get your facts straight because the Backstreet Boys have been together for almost 17 years.. And what's the big deal with their clothes?! They are wearing jeans and t-shirts.. who says that only teens can wear jeans a graphic tees?! Why do they have to wear suits? I think you have wayyyy too much free time on your hands and you obviously have no idea what the hell you are talking about. The Backstreet Boys are and have been a VERY successful musical group. They are getting ready to release their 7th album and to this day are still selling out shows all over the world. So if you are going to trash talk artists why don't you talk about how big of a loser Chris Brown is or how Britney Spears can't actually sing.. because those would be facts not lies someone is spreading because they are so insesure about themselves they have to make fun of a "boyband" KEEP THE BACKSTREET PRIDE ALIVE!!!

This is ridiculous and we shouldn't even we wasting our time on ignorant fools like the one that wrote this. Ladies, don't even bother... we know he is obviously speaking out of jealousy... maybe he's mad that his life isn't half as successful as theirs, and he has to sit around writing random jiberish on some BS site that no one has even heard of in order to get some attention? Let's not give him that satisfaction. *KTBPA* ALWAYS & FOREVERRRRR

Who runs around all day in a suit? Are you kidding me? If you bothered to go see one of their shows, (Which they have been performing for years and years without much of a break) you'd know that they do dress to fit the occasion. When a suit is called for, they wear one! And this isn't a comeback. Since when is putting out album after album considered a comeback? Doesn't a band/group have to actually break up or give up on the biz to have a comeback? BSB never did either of those things. Get your information straight before you hate.

This article and any other article like this is definitely ridiculous because the guys are not claiming to be 18 years old still, they are not claiming to be making a "comeback (they never left?!) and they are always talking about how they've grown both as a group and individually musically, socially, and mentally... in every way possible. They claim to have learned and prospered because of their long-term success, which began when they were "youth" if you want to call it that! I hate people who make fun of them because they are the people who are truly envious of them (their talent, their looks, their drive and motivation... ultimately, their success and fame!) If people don't care either way about BSB, they wouldn't feel the need to write nasty things about them... they just need to feel better about themselves by bashing others. Losers!

Wear a suit - plz ....they look great and all guys over 18 wear jeans and tees - as for the 'comeback' they never went anywhere and are the only group who are still relevant in todays music scene. I have been a fan from the start and at 26 I am still very proud to be one..... KTBSPA

It's not a comeback/reunion/last performace; they haven't take a break longer than 3 years for the past 16 and a half years! Get it right moron.

You aren't serious right? I have been a Backstreet Boys fan since i was 14 years old and I will be turning 27 next month and I am still a very proud fan of theirs. Who the hell cares what they are wearing and to answer your stupid question no they are NOT pass their prime!!!! I don't understand why everyone has to find something to bash the Backstreet Boys!!! They are dressed comfortably and I must say they all look wonderful, but they also make amazing music which I'm sure you don't know because you have nothing better to do then waste time making a stupid article on their clothing!! How about showing some respect to them instead of making up things and by the way what the hell are you talking about holding onto their youth?! They aren't trying to hold onto anything!!!!! They are just being themselves and doing what they love to do so instead of insulting their style how about give them credit and show respect!!!!! This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off...... not only do radio stations and other shows who put music videos on treat BSB like nothing, but now we have to sit here and read some lame article about their clothes?!?! Get a life!!!!

Are you serious?? They are not holding on to their youth....and they sure as heck don't have to cling on to their career, because they're amazing!! They look, in my opinion, hot in that pic! Why in the world would they wear suits? They're always on the go and dancing and singing to fans! When did it become a bad thing for people over 18 to wear jeans and a tee-shirt? Never. And no-this isn't a so-called comeback.....they never left!! They have been making music for the past 16, almost 17 years! They have fans who love them for their amazing talent, for who they are, and their style!! I just don't understand why everybody's just has to find something to bash BSB about! stop it with this nonsense crulety! And in some ways, who gives a -you- know -what, what they wear! It wouldn't matter to me because thier voices and talent always shine though! KTBSPA!!!! BSB rocks!

Do grown men have to wear suits all the time?? That's ridiculous. There's a reason why casual is called casual.

The Backstreet Boys never did break up. What rock have you been sitting under that you think they're staging a comeback? You must be thinking of The New Kids On The Block because they have reunited, and to very SUPPORTIVE and loving fan reviews. Hmmm...NKOTB are definitely not 18 anymore. They're pushing 40. I dare you to make your snide comments about them coz their fans will be all over you just like the BSB fans, so I'd be really careful. KTBSBPA!!

Uh, please enlighten me, Mayday. What rock/pop/grunge/new wave/alternative singing group or solo artist can you show me out there today that wears suits? None...no matter what age they are. Yes, The Beatles, Herman's Hermits and some of the other groups of the 50s and 60s wore them, but it's 2009 now, and times have changed. Now, if you really are looking for musicians in suits, then may I suggest a trip to the Symphony. Those guys wear suits, but that's because they play classical music, which seems to call for that type of formal attire more than a pop/rock concert would. The Backstreet Boys are pop/rock singers and dancers, so what they wear is quite appropriate. Their fans like them the way they are, and what they wear is just fine with us. As for them "hanging on to their youth" and not acting like they're 18 anymore, please go talk to The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, KISS, etc., and see what they have to say to your little statements here. Those guys don't wear suits either, and it's been a hell of a lot longer since they were 18. Honestly, you should really try thinking BEFORE you write.

oopps i just posted a review and i should have proof read before submitting...i meant to say i totally disagree with the article not agree....KTBSPA

I totally agree with this article, i see no issue in what the boys are wearing they are wearing casual outfits. These outfits do not make them look like their 18. I have a 26 year old brother that still wears clothes from American Eagle and Apostle. I think the guys look hot and i are only getting better looking as they aged. Also they are not trying to hold on desperately to their 15 mins of fame. The boys have never left the biz, yes they took a break but they are entitled to the time off to relax after working non-stop for so many years. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, they've released 2 albums since 2005, just ended a world tour and are about to release their 7th studio album world wide. Backstreet Boys have true and amazing talent unlike those talentless popstars who are fame whores (ie Heidi Montag). I've been a BSB fan for 14 years and will be forever, I love these guys, they make great music and deserve to be recognized and awarded for their talent. Can't wait for the new album to come out, This Is Us, Oct 6.

This is the most ridiculous article I have ever read. The US Media's treatment of the Backstreet Boys has been very unprofessional and I oppose it. They are a talented vocal group thats not going anywhere, so please show some respect for BSB

Wow.... this editorial is just so wrong on so many levels. My 58-year-old father wears jeans and t-shirts, so I don't know what you're talking about with the fashion statement. Maybe YOU need a lesson on style, not the other way around. And, like everyone else is saying, the Backstreet Boys have never had to "come back" from anything. They never left! They've always been around, even though their publicity has been a lot more subdued. They just finished a world tour the beginning of this year, so someone needs to get their facts straight. Whoever wrote this is obviously a man, who's jealous because he's not as good-looking, talented, or stylish as the Backstreet Boys at their age. Oh, and it's "man or woman", not "man or women". You should really consider another career, because obviously you don't know sh*t about anything.

Who the f*ck wrote this? People like you are sad because you have nothing and no one. You have to pick on people who make a living doing what they love? There is no age limit on that! ~~~Oh no, I'm not 18 and I own jeans!!! I better hand them in, along with my youth!~~ LOL You are an idiot!

BSB are not past their prime!! Maybe whoever wrote this article should look into the BSB back catalogue at the dates the albums were released and they'll actually notice that this is no comeback!! So you can only wear jeans and t-shirts if you're 18 and under then?!

Why does everyone think they're making a comeback when they never left?! And what does it matter about what they wear anyway? At least they're wearing clothes unlike some certain people out there at the moment who look like they've had to improvise with curtains or something! Maybe whoever wrote that "article" should post a picture of what they wear and let others judge their outfit, see how they like it.

I am so sick if people bashing these guys it drives me crazy!!! A.J. does not look ridicolous at all I think he looks just great they all do. It is never ever a good idea to judge people by what they wear that is so dumb and not very nice at all. These guys have worked so long and so hard for the last 17 years to make great music for us fans who actually appreciate and respect them as people. They were never gone in the first place. Sure they aren't boys anymore or 18 who cares!!! Leave our boys alone!!!

I heard their new song and actually really liked it. I hope they start playing it in the clubs - because it has the upbeat good tempo you can actually dance to. i didn't even know it was them...so maybe you need to think about the song, and not who is singing it.

The only one who is truly ridiculous for what he wears these days is AJ but the other three looks fine, most of the time. They sometimes wear weird and ridiculous shoes as well. However, that is not the Boys' fault but their "designer", whoever he/she is. Therefore, I have to partially agree.

oh and give us a break too, us fans, stop the negative comment about this fantastic band, at least they sing live (which can't really be said from other such as that Britney "look at my boobs and ass" Spears) so we like BSB, so shoot us, what do you want? you expect us to like some of those junior kindergarden bands like Jonas Brothers or that horrible Tokyo hotel? BSB makes great timeless music, they can sing, they look good and if they would want it they could easily get thousands of gorgeous women in their bed, whoever wrote this is nothing more but jealous haha

WTF! Leave the boys alone. Sure they aren't boys anymore, but they can dress however they want to. I actually think their clothes look a lot more mature and grown up than the clothes they used to wear when they were 18. AJ's shirt is funny because he's famous. Brian looks like he always has since he became a daddy. Howie while his little one is probably still up all night. GIve him a break! Nick has a graffiti drawn Mary and Jesus on his shirt, which is very mature and grown up. How about you just leave the boys alone. Hater!

Stop being stupid. I've seen other people dress like them. How they are dressed shouldn't matter anyway. They are not trying to be or look 18, they are just being themselves and wearing whats comfortable. Comeback? Where did they go? They never left. What they are doing is great! They are making music, great miusic and touring! They are not hurting anyone and they have plenty of fans that still love them and have loved them ever since they started. So leave them alone and let them do what they are doing, which is great, great, great!

Totally agree .. they were never gone (lmao),they were touring non stop since the last album came out about a year ago or something and bring up a new album right now. How is that a comeback? Also, take a lok around at thecity center or wherever actually, which late 20s early 30s guy is wearing a suit all the time? Its just a freaking shirt and jeans, everybody wears that .. I bet you dotoo

I think that the Backstreet Boys are doing a great job - this is not a comeback, cause they were never gone! What difference does it make if they were wearing a suit? They would still look HOT!!! It's so easy to pick on the guys, because they are the kind of group that you either love or hate - and some just loves to hate them... Let's just show them the kind of respect they deserve - they are the last boyband standing after 17 years of hard work - you go BSB!
