    BSB Chart New Course (NYPost, Dec11)

    BSB CHART NEW COURSE
    By DAN AQUILANTE

    December 11, 2007 -- WHO would have thought the last men standing would be boys - Backstreet Boys?

    *NSYNC got killed by Justin Timberlake's desire to be alone, and Nick
    Lachey's 98 Degrees was iced on the charts. Like the hit song says,
    "Backstreet's Back" - this time with a new disc, "Unbreakable," a
    charting single and the top slot at Friday's Z-100 Jingle Ball at
    Madison Square Garden.

    Speaking to The Post, Nick Carter, the youngest of the Boys, at 27,
    bristles at even a mention of the word comeback. "Listen, we're here,
    we haven't gone anywhere. Our last album, 'Never Gone' [2005], went
    platinum, and we have a new record out now - that isn't a comeback,
    that's staying power."

    Despite having sold 100 million records over the past decade, fickle
    fans may have forgotten about BSB, and there's a whole new crop of
    music listeners who have been too busy with Hannah Montana to discover
    them.

    "What we love about the Jingle Ball is it's always exciting. I also
    like that since it's a variety show you have to make your impact, prove
    yourself, in just a few songs. We're going to be playing for lots of
    people who aren't fans or haven't heard our new stuff."

    ...

    "I think it might be a little strange to see us as a quartet at first,
    but the musical dynamic is better now than it was before," says Carter.
    "Nothing against Kevin - we all love him to death - but he just didn't
    want to do this anymore, and that was affecting the music. "

    While the band has publicly claimed he's welcome back any time, Carter
    hedges, "We said that because we love and respect Kevin, but there'll
    be a time when that door won't be open. This is the the new Backstreet
    Boys."

    ...

    As for Carter, he had the toughest row to hoe after a tumultuous
    relationship with Paris Hilton in 2004 that was intimately covered by
    The Post's Page Six. Carter doesn't kiss and tell, but their breakup
    contributed to his weight gain.

    "To get ready for this tour I lost 45 pounds. It takes a long time to lose that kind of weight, and I really worked at it."

    Carter, who topped out at 225 pounds, has said, "I was really fat and
    disgusting. I never want to get to that again." To get to his new
    physique, he said he just ate healthier food and less of it, and worked
    out at the gym.

    "This is a constant struggle for me. A lot of people don't put on
    weight, I have to stay on top of it." Since he has a healthy disdain
    for the treadmill, Carter adds, "I'm happy the tour is starting; each
    show is a great workout."

    Yeah I don't either. Thats definately a miss qyote b/c they have all said the door is always open. Maybe that's why he was getting snippy, the interviewer was an idiot.
