Oh, jurls. The New Kids are back. I'm kinda thinking they should have stayed where they were. Don't get me wrong, back in the day I loved me some NKOTB. I never had a poster or a pillow case with their faces on it, but I knew every word to "Please, Don't Go Girl" and "You Got It (The Right Stuff)." I may even have moved and grooved to their early 90s track, "Step by Step". Oh, yeah.
But, jurls, let me break it down for ya. Now that they're middle aged and we're middle aged.....they suck ass. I know because they performed on The View yesterday and stunk up the joint. Joey McIntyre sang lead on their new song with a crackling voice that made me wonder if he was just now hittin puberty. It was HORRIBLE. Donny Wahlberg did a kind of rappy-singy thing that wasn't terrible and he appeared to be the best dancer of the bunch. One of the dark headed ones also sang, and though he didn't make my ears bleed, he wasn't anything to write home about either. The other couple of spares appeared to be counting steps under their breath. For gosh sakes, guys! You were friggin NKOTB!
I guess I'm not exactly as spry as I was in the 1980s either, but you don't see me trying to make a come back. No, I'm hiding out, hoping the world will look the other way and I think Danny, Jonathan, Joey, Jordan, and Donnie should have done the same.
My question is, did they always suck ass???? Judge for yourself.
New song on The View:
Maybe he was nervous????
Back When They Were Not Embarrassing:
Ah, now that's more like it.
