The Backstreet Boys are Backstreet Dads in new music video for "No Place"

Randall Colburn Jan 05, 2019. 6 comments

Hi, we’re old and the hunky teen boys who used to dance around as sexy phantoms and blonde mummies are greying dads with wives, children, and beachside villas now. That’s the theme, at least, of the Backstreet Boys’ new music video for easygoing single “No Place,” which will appear on their upcoming 10th album, DNA. The above clip finds the fivesome dancing, prancing, swimming, and cooking with their kin, all while breezily harmonizing over muted electric strums and finger snaps.

This is the third DNA single following “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and “Chances,” and it serves as a primer for the venerable boy band’s 43-date world tour, which kicks off in May. The farts, we imagine, will be plentiful .

Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer

Anybody who’s ever gotten lost in the winding, identical streets of a subdivision will relate to this trailer for Vivarium, a supernatural comedy about a couple (Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots) who become imprisoned in a labyrinth-like maze of green houses.

Look at their boxy jackets!...

Things have gotten extremely ugly between the Carter brothers Things have gotten extremely ugly between the Carter brothers

Once upon a time, the Carter brothers—Nick, from the Backstreet Boys, and Aaron, slayer of Shaq —were at the top of what could have been a minor musical dynasty. (They even had their own single-season reality show, the brass ring of American musical success.) But time makes increasingly, unrelentingly depressing fools of us all, especially where social media is...
