I WANT TO GO CAMPING

ONE DAY.

I'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE.

I WANT TO DO THAT.

WHOO HOO!

CAN YOU IMAGINE PLAYING

PAINTBALL UP HERE?

IT'D BE HARD.

IF YOU TRIPPED:

AND FELL DOWN THIS HILL,

YOU'RE DONEZO.

OH, GOD... OH, GOD.

WHAT THE HELL?

DID THEY TAKE:

WITH THE GROUP, GUYS?

COME ON, A.J.,

YOU CAN DO IT.

ALL RIGHT,

A.J.'S COMING.

YES, IT'S GONNA

TAKE ME A MINUTE.

THIS IS REALLY SHITTY

FOR MY KNEES.

BACKSTREET BOYS!

BACKSTREET BOYS!

BACKSTREET BOYS!

BACKSTREET BOYS!

BACKSTREET BOYS!

FROM 1999 TO ABOUT 2002,

WE WERE UNSTOPPABLE.

I MEAN, WE'RE THE BIGGES BAND IN THE WORLD.

WE DREAMED, BUT NOBODY

THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE

AS BIG AS IT WAS.

WE SOLD OVER 130 MILLION

ALBUMS WORLDWIDE.

THEN KINDA OUT OF NOWHERE,

IT JUST STOPPED.

ONCE RADIO AND MTV

AND THEY THINK THA YOU'RE OVER,

I MEAN, THEY'RE GONNA JUS SCRATCH YOU.

YOU CAN GET SO MUCH

CRITICISM BEING IN A BOY BAND.

THE BEGINNING WAS MANUFACTURED.

THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

BUT IT'S LIKE PINOCCHIO.

HE WAS MANUFACTURED.

BUT HE TURNED INTO

A REAL BOY.

THEY ARE THE BEST-SELLING

BOY BAND IN HISTORY,

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS

OF MUSIC-- THE BACKSTREET BOYS.

KEVIN IS COMING BACK!

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN

YOU'RE A FULL-GROWN MAN

IN A BOY BAND?

I DON'T KNOW,

LET'S SEE.

COME ON!

THANK YOU.

DON'T GIVE UP!

DON'T GIVE UP!

THAT'S IT.

KEEP IT GOING.

HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY!

YEAH!

PASS IT, BRIAN.

WE NEED YOU, COME ON.

2006,

I QUIT THE GROUP.

I WANTED TO JUS BE A NORMAL GUY FOR A WHILE.

I DIDN'T FEEL INSPIRED

AS MUCH AS I USED TO.

I DIDN'T LOVE IT.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE PASSION

THAT I USED TO HAVE,

AND THEREFORE I LEFT.

OH!

I HAD THIS IDEA TO GO

TO LONDON JUST TO GET AWAY,

JUST THE FIVE OF US,

BRING EVERYBODY TOGETHER,

'CAUSE WE HADN'T SEEN

EACH OTHER IN FOREVER.

AND, YOU KNOW,

TO RECORD AN ALBUM.

NO FAMILIES, NO GIRLFRIENDS,

NO-- JUST US.

NEVER, EVER PLAYED,

AND NOT TOO BAD,

NOT TOO SHABBY.

HOWIE, TWINKLE TOES.

NOT BAD.

I LIKE GOLF WAY BETTER.

YEE!

- SEE, I REMEMBER THAT.

- HEY, DON'T GET USED TO ME

BRINGING YOU TEA.

OH, YOU'VE SEEN "DRIVE,"

RIGHT, THE MOVIE "DRIVE?"

UH-HUH.

- YEAH, BUDDY.

I'M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.

OH, MY GOD,

YOU'RE SO--

- NICOLE GOT IT, MADE FOR ME.

- THAT IS HILARIOUS.

HOW DOPE IS THIS SH*T?

COME ON, MAN,

YOU KNOW IT'S DOPE.

GOOD, GIVE ME A LINE.

GIVE ME A LINE.

HE DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING,

LIKE, THE ENTIRE MOVIE.

WELL,

GIVE ME THE LOOK.

YOU GOT TO PU THE JACKET ON.

OKAY, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.

- MAN, DON'T--

- I CAN'T LOOK AT YOU.

YOU'RE NOT-- YOU'RE NOT GONNA BE

VERY GOOD AT ACTING

AT THIS POINT, OKAY, COOL.

I FEEL THAT.

THAT WAS THE LOOK?

YOU DON'T HAVE NO WORDS?

HE REALLY DIDN'T SAY SHI THE WHOLE MOVIE.

SO WE FINALLY GOT TO

THE TOP OF THE HILL.

TEN YEARS AGO,

EVERYTHING WAS SO FAST-PACED.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO REST.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TIME

TO THINK.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TIME

TO EAT.

CRAZY KID.

EVERYBODY WAS SICK

OF EACH OTHER,

AND EVERYBODY WANTED TO DO

THEIR OWN THING.

WE'RE ALL OLDER NOW.

SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED.

WE'VE SEEN THE BES AND THE WORST OF EACH OTHER

FOR 20 YEARS.

MY WHOLE MANTRA COMING

INTO THIS:

IS I JUST WANT TO BE PROUD

OF THE MUSIC THAT WE'RE MAKING,

AND THE SHOWS THAT WE'RE PUTTING

ON AND HAVE A BLAST.

ENJOY IT.

ONE, TWO, THREE--

WE DON'T HAVE A RECORD

DEAL. IT'S AWESOME.

IT'S LIKE

STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN,

HAVING THE FREEDOM TO CREATE

SOMETHING FROM SCRATCH.

THIS IS SOMETHING

THAT WE FELT LIKE

WE WANTED TO DO OURSELVES.

IT'S OUR MONEY.

SO THIS NEW CHAPTER THA WE'RE EMBARKING ON

IS, TO ME, EXCITING,

AT THE SAME TIME,

CRAZY AND SCARY.

IT'S A BIG YEAR FOR US,

KEVIN'S BACK.

WE HAVE AN ALBUM

THAT WE GOT TO RELEASE,

20TH ANNIVERSARY,

BRAND-NEW TOUR.

IT'S HUGE.

WE USED TO SHOW UP

AND THEY'D SAY,

"GO IN AND SING THIS,"

AND YOU'D GO IN

AND SING IT.

THE PRODUCER WOULD

MAKE IT SOUND MAGICAL,

AND THE RECORD EXECUTIVES

PICKED THE SINGLES

AND THERE WAS NO

DECISION MAKING.

WHEN WE WERE KIDS,

IT WAS DIFFERENT.

WE WERE TOLD WERE TO GO.

WE WERE TOLD WHAT TO DO.

WE WERE TOLD WHAT TO SAY.

AND NOW IT'S LIKE,

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I DO HAVE A VOICE.

I WANT TO THINK FOR MYSELF.

I WANT TO MAKE MUSIC

FOR ME.

YOU KNOW, I WANT TO MAKE MUSIC

FOR OUR FANS.

I WANT TO MAKE:

EVERYBODY HAPPY.

I'VE BEEN IN THIS BAND

FOR MORE THAN HALF OF MY LIFE.

I AM THE FIRST, THE ORIGINAL

OLD SCHOOL BACKSTREET BOY.

I MET LOU PEARLMAN

IN 1992.

HE WAS PROBABLY ONE OF

THE WEALTHIEST MEN

IN ORLANDO AT THE TIME,

AN ENTREPRENEUR.

YOU KNOW HE WAS JUS AN ALL AROUND WEALTHY,

WEALTHY MAN.

YOU KNOW, LOU HAD SEEN

THE SUCCESS OF BOYZ II MEN,

JODECI,

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK,

AND I THINK ONCE THAT GO IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD,

HE WAS LIKE,

"WELL, I CAN DO THIS."

I CAN PUT TOGETHER A GROUP--

FIVE PRETTY FACES

THAT CAN SING AND DANCE.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT HE DID.

LOU WAS GIVING US

A $75 WEEK CHECK,

AND I STILL HAVE I IN MY MOM'S HOUSE FRAMED.

IT WAS THE FIRST CHECK

I EVER GOT.

IT WAS LIKE A PER DIEM,

AND 75 BUCKS FOR A 14-YEAR-OLD'S

A LOT OF MONEY.

I'D BEEN WORKING

ON A SOLO CAREER

SINCE I WAS 6 YEARS OLD.

IT WAS DEFINITELY BETTER THAN

WORKING AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS

OR DISNEY'S BACK LOT, YOU KNOW,

OR McDONALDS, THAT'S FOR SURE.

I REALLY HAD THIS CHOICE

BETWEEN BEING A MOUSEKETEER,

$50,000 CONTRACT, OR DOING

THIS THING WITH LOU PEARLMAN

AND THE BACKSTREET BOYS.

MY MOTHER GAVE ME THE CHOICE.

I DON'T KNOW WHY

SHE LEFT THAT DECISION
