It’s official: Backstreet Boys take the best selfies.
First, how amazing is it that the Backstreet Boys are, like, fully on social media?! We know — that’s a bold statement because they’re adaptable humans able to appreciate technological developments. It’s just that they were also around when, you know, Twitter was just a word you mumbled in your sleep. That said, please enjoy this casual Instagram selfie of “In A World Like This” crooners Nick Carter and Howie Dorough rocking wide-eyed deer-in-headlights looks while they talk about their new single. Just because!
And, just in case you haven’t yet received your weekly “Boy-Band Stares” newsletter yet, we’ll remind you that this isn’t the first time a famous boy bander has looked at us so intensely. The current crowned king of boy bands, One Direction‘s Harry Styles, is also a bona fide pro at the deer-in-headlights look. So maybe this dazed face is just a common affliction among attractive men with good voices? Or perhaps they’re so stunned from all the female attention (pulling hair, grabbing bodies, trying to get a kiss, etc.) that they’ve been forced into a catatonic state. Or maybe they’re a little tired from their 20-year reunion tour? Whatever it is, we’re not complaining! We’ll take any excuse to state directly into Nick and Howie’s eyes. … For the next 24 hours…
