Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell: “There Were Plenty of Times That I Was Fearful for My Life”

One-fifth of the BSB on the group’s new documentary Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of and the perils of being in the biggest boy band in the world.

 
By Eliza Thompson

At the start of the new documentary Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You Made Of (in theaters and available on VOD today), Nick Carter says, “In the beginning, it was manufactured. There’s no doubt about it. But it’s like Pinocchio. He was manufactured, but he turned into a real boy.” This is a surprisingly great analogy for the group, who’ve spent the last few years reestablishing themselves as a band that has full control over their lives and careers. Brian Littrell — who, full disclosure, was always my favorite Backstreet Boy — chatted with Cosmopolitan.com about the movie, Lou Pearlman, and his early years in the BSB. He was every bit as charming as you imagined him back when Millennium was the only album you owned, beginning the interview by singing my name (yes, it’s my ringtone now), then quizzing me about my thoughts on the movie. Backstreet’s back, alright?

I watched the movie last night. It was really fun!
Was it just fun, Eliza? Was it just fun, or was it deep and amazing and heartfelt?

Oh, it was everything. I felt a lot of feelings.
[Laughs] Good. That’s a good thing. What’s your overall view of the film? Is it what you expected?

It was very emotional. There were parts where I was tearing up a little bit. I didn’t expect that. I thought it would be more of a concert film.
Well, that’s good. We’re getting reviews that as a Backstreet Boys fan it’s kind of uncomfortable to watch, because you don’t anticipate what you’re really gonna see. We didn’t want it to be a cushy, promotional concert film like the pop stars of today make. I mean, it is a making of a record, but it’s also a making of a career, the highs and lows, and hopefully you get that in watching it.

How much do you see the other Boys when you’re not on tour or working on an album?

Brian Littrell from the best-selling group, Backstreet Boys, chatted about their new documentary, “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of.”

Their documentary will be released on January 30 in the United States. “We started talking about this documentary many years ago, when we opened up the idea of Kevin coming back. When Kevin came back, we decided to document our 20 year anniversary with the making of the record. We discovered that there was a production company that wanted to co-produce it with us, so we started to run around ideas about going to each other’s hometowns, where we grew up, and re-live the Backstreet Boys story from the beginning until now,” Littrell said.
He continued, “It is not a fluffy, emotional piece about how big the Backstreet Boys are. It is more or less about the climb and the journey, and the paths that made us who we are today. Making this documentary was very real. We shared a lot of emotional things and hopefully people are affected in a good and positive way about it. It is an inspiring story, and I hope that people look at it through the great times the bad times, all of which made us who we are as people today. Life happens, and for us it happened in the public, right before social media.
Littrell shared that he is motivated each day by his family, his wife and son. “I have been with my wife almost 18 years, and I have a 12-year-old son who drives me every single day. I have to go to my family first, and then the fans who are another great motivation. Inspiration is easily found in my life,” he said.

Brian Littrell can picture Backstreet Boys performing into their 50s

Luis Gomez About Last Night
10:16 p.m. CDT, June 4, 2014

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for One Direction fans, but the immensely popular British boy band won’t be around forever. History has taught us that solo aspirations or in-fighting among band members will likely do in the quintet within the next two to three years (five, if they’re lucky), just like they’ve done in nearly every pop band that came before them. Many of us can see the Harry Styles solo album coming from a mile away. And when that day comes and One Direction is no more — which hopefully happens later rather than sooner, for the sake of millions of teenagers — don’t be surprised if the Backstreet Boys are still going strong.

The Backstreet Boys, you see, are the exception to the rule.

The “I Want It That Way” band celebrated its 20th anniversary and released its eighth studio album, “In A World Like This,” last year. Backstreet has been recording new music steadily since its self-titled 1996 debut, never going more than five years without an album release. To put that in perspective, pop acts such as ‘N Sync and the Spice Girls haven’t released an album in more than a decade and 98 Degrees and New Kids on the Block both waited more than a decade before recording another album. Backstreet performs Wednesday at FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island along with Avril Lavigne. In October, the guys will take part in a four-day Backstreet fan cruise, in collaboration with Carnival Cruise Lines.

That’s not to say it’s been smooth sailing (excuse the pun) the entire time for Backstreet. There have been solo albums, stints in rehab and lawsuits — not to mention Kevin Richardson left the band in 2006 before returning in 2012. Still, they’ve far outlasted everyone’s predictions and, as last year’s surprise cameo in “This Is The End” proved, remain relevant after all these years. Here, band member Brian Littrell talks about where Backstreet goes from here and pictures a day when the general public gets past the boy band stigma and gives the guys their due.

Q: Backstreet is now 21 years old. What keeps you guys from calling it a day and going your separate ways?

Backstreet’s back! Here, Brian Littrell tells all about their new tour and why he feels the love on Valentine’s Day

He’s no Hugh Hefner. You won’t catch Brian Littrell bedding a bevy of babes on the Day Of Love – February 14.

Brian’s too refined and too smart. If Barry White was the Love Walrus, Brian is the boy next door. He’s a modest, understated old romantic.

While Barry is all grunt and grind, Brian is more kiss and cuddle. He’d rather a sensitive gesture, than a revolving bed, black satin sheets and a collection of 1970s soul tunes.

That doesn’t mean, however, that he’s a slouch when it comes to the Day of Love.

“Valentine’s Day is very important to me, it’s funny that you should ask me about that,” he says.

Brian only has eyes for his model wife, Leighanne Wallace, who he met in 1997 on the set for their video shoot for As Long As You Love Me.

He proposed on Christmas Eve, 1999, and they married the following September, at Peachtree Christian Church. Their son, Baylee Thomas Wylee Littrell, was born two years later.

Brian will be getting ready to hit the road when Valentine’s Day falls. “We’re going to Portugal and Spain a few days after,” he says.

“My birthday is on February 20 and we’ll be in Barcelona by then.

“So we’ve decided to have a big Valentine’s Day party at the house. We’re going to celebrate it with families and certain couples. It’ll be like a big prom.”

Ah, bless. Isn’t he a sweetie?

Exclu Public : Brian Littrell des Backstreet Boys : “Je suis heureux de revenir sur scène !”

Découvrez l’interview exclusive que nous a donné en avant-première nationale Brian Littrell des Backstreet Boys, actuellement en tournée mondiale !

20 ans de carrière, un nouvel opus baptisé “In a World Like This” et une tournée éponyme ! Les Backstreet Boys, groupe mythique des 1990’s, opère en effet son grand retour sur scène avec une tournée mondiale qui passera par Paris le 18 mars 2014 !. Le célèbre groupe “made in USA” qui avait été honoré sur le Walk of Fame il y a presque un an et a vendu 130 millions de disques sera ainsi réuni pour le plus grand bonheur de leurs fans. Découvrez dès à présent en exclusivité ce que nous a confié Brian Littrell des Backstreet Boys avant son arrivée dans notre capitale !

Public : Comment expliquez-vous un tel succès malgré toutes ces années passées ?
Brian : Et bien je dirais que l’on a grandi en même temps que nos fans, cela fait 20 ans que l’on se suit mutuellement. Cela explique certainement notre longévité.

Public : Comment vous sentez-vous depuis votre étoile sur le fameux Walk of Fame ?
Brian : Oh whaouh, c’était énorme ! C’était un moment très important dans notre carrière. Cela s’est passé il y a presque un an et c’est quelque chose à laquelle nous ne nous attendions pas pour être honnête avec vous. Avoir une étoile là-bas, c’était très émouvant, notre famille était présente. On se dit que même après la fin de notre carrière, on sera toujours là, “gravés” sur le Walk of Fame.

Public : Que pensez-vous de vos fans français ?
Brian : On adore nos fans français ! Cela fait un moment que nous n’avions pas été en France et nous sommes vraiment très excités d’être de retour. En plus nous avons préparé un show exceptionnel de deux heures avec nos chansons qui sont étalées sur 20 ans. Nous avons hâte, nous sommes très excités !

Public : Pouvez-vous nous raconter comment se passe la tournée des Backstreet Boys que vous avez entamé avec vos camarades ?
Brian : Pour le moment, les concerts se passent plutôt bien. C’est un peu la tournée anniversaire des Backstreet Boys et c’est un moment vraiment spécial pour nous !

Public : Vos fans français nous ont demandé sur Twitter quelle chanson des Backstreet Boys préférez-vous…
Brian : Ma chanson préférée ? Je pense qu’il s’agit de Siberia. oui, c’est ma chanson des Backstreet Boys favorite !

Public : Avez-vous encore d’autres projets tous ensemble ?
Brian : Et bien nous avons un documentaire qui est prévu pour le printemps prochain. C’est à propos de nos débuts, des tous premiers débuts des Backstreet Boys, de là où on vient, de la musique avec laquelle nous avons grandi… C’est très excitant !

Public : Vous qui êtes dans un boy’s band de renommée internationale, que pensez-vous des petits nouveaux comme One direction ou encore The Wanted ?
Brian : Ils sont talentueux, très talentueux. Je connais un peu les membres de One direction, un peu moins The Wanted. Mais ils sont tous les deux cool ! Vous savez, il y a toujours de nouveaux groupes qui se forment et apportent quelque chose de frais, de nouveau dans l’industrie musicale. C’est une bonne chose et nous sommes heureux pour eux, on espère qu’ils resteront connus aussi longtemps que nous car vous savez c’est très difficile.

Public : A.J. McLean a eu une petite fille et Kevin Richardson est papa pour la seconde fois . Vous qui êtes déjà père d’un garçon (Baylee Thomas Wylee), est-ce que ça vous donne envie d’avoir un deuxième enfant ?
Brian : Non, non nous avons un enfant et un enfant c’est juste parfait ! Nous avons eu la chance d’en avoir un, nous avons été bénis de Dieu et nous sommes très heureux comme ça.
