Best Boy Bands of All Time

So today in the celebrity world it is is slow for now at least. I haven’t seen anything that has really caught my eye to write about. Kanye West was at Harvard, cool. Other than that it has been a slow day. So I decided to take it into my own hands and write about the top boybands of all time. People may complain that Jonas Brother and Hanson aren’t on the list but they aren’t a boy band. They don’t do choreographed dancing or any of that good stuff, so they didn’t make the cut.

10. Westlife- I am aware not many people in America know about these guys but they are pretty great and huge in the rest of the world. Westlife have incredible love songs and amazing voices too. They should be famous over in America but they are too good for us, too proper, that is why they made it at number 10.

09. LFO- May Rich Cronin rest in peace but before he left this world he gave us one of the best songs of all time Summer Girls. Is there any better song to bump when you want a good classic throwback song? They rapped, they sang, they danced, they were hot, they were perfect. They also gave us another great gem that people seem to forget about called Girl On TV which was written about Jennifer Love Hewitt.

08. One Direction- I was a little hesitant to put these guys on the list simply because I am convinced they will be breaking up within two years. In two years Harry Styles will be a solo artist and the rest of the guys will be like Joey, Lance, JC, and Chris, if you don’t get that reference then you are probably too young for this blog. Their songs are catchy though and in reality is that all that you need when you are in a boy band. Catchy songs, good looks, and a loyal band of fans which they have. The Directioners are almost as violent as the Beliebers, almost.

07. O-Town- This band had a very short life but they left us with the song All or Nothing which I will never be able to thank them enough for giving us. This was the original making the band, band and they were pretty good. Ashley Parker Angel was perfect and so was Jacob, then he got dreads and 13 year girls didn’t know how to handle it. They also sang about Liquid Dreams which is creepy and genius but still creepy since most of their crowd was in the young teens. Thanks O-Town and feel free to make a comeback at any time.

06. 98 Degrees- Thank the pop Gods for 98 Degrees, a four man boy band with three good looking guys. Jeff, Nick, and Drew were absolute perfection in their firemen outfits. Justin could go though, he wasn’t necessary at all but every group needs a black sheep right? Although this band tried to make a comeback I don’t think that they will ever fully come back. I just want to take a moment for the music video Hardest Thing. If you don’t remember it, I suggest you YouTube that video right this second.

05. Boyz 2 Men- I must put them in the top five because they influenced most of the boy bands that I grew up loving so much. They are also absolutely bad ass with their songs. End of the Road? Come on that song is straight fire. Then the ultimate baby making song, I’ll Make Love to You. These guys were just fire back in the 90’s and their music is still relevant to this day. I know the next thing you will do is pop in that cassette of I’ll Make Love to You and sing your hear out. You’re welcome for reminding you of great music.

04. NKOTB- These five bad boys from Boston made it possible for bands like Backstreet boys and NSYNC to become who they were. Joey, Danny, Jordan, Chris, and of course the baddest of them all Donny ruled music for a while. Of course after having hit after hit they decided to berak up and try solo careers, well Jordan and Joey did, but now they are back together and still touring. Let’s be real we are all still trying to do the dance from The Right Stuff.

03. Jackson 5- They have to make it into the top 3 simply because of a young Michael Jackson. This is what MJ who was and launched him into super stardom. Of course they were managed by his asshole of a father but that isn’t the point. The Jackson 5 brought us the King of Pop and for that we should be forever thankful.

02. NSYNC- Putting NSYNC at number 2 was easily one of the easiest choices of my life. They don’t deserve to be any lower or any higher on this list. NSYNC came otu just after Backstreet Boys and it sparked the boy band war for the ages. You either loved NSYNC or loved Backstreet Boys, no other way to put it. They gave us timeless classics like Bye Bye Bye, Gonna be Me, and Tearin’ Up My Heart, with their frosted tips and over sized clothing they stole the hearts of millions everywhere. This band also was a platform for Justin Timberlake to fly off into super stardom but he refused to recognize it for most of his solo career until recently. Even though the only two people who ever sang were JC and JT it didn’t matter simply because they had Justin Timberlake.

01. Backstreet Boys- These five guys deserve the top spot for a plethora of reasons but I will only name a few. They are celebrating their 20 year mark of being together, they had also sold more albums than any other boy band in the history of boy bands. Those are facts people and facts don’t lie. With the lead vocals being Brian, Nick, and AJ there aren’t any other voices that can compare in the boy band history. With hits like I Want It That Way, Quit Playin Games with my Heart, Larger Than Life, and then their softer side with Incomplete and Show me the meaning of being lonely, there is no way that they don’t deserve this number one spot.

Thank you for reading this list that doesn’t really mean anything and I hope you enjoy it.

Adam Levine: Sexiest Man Alive 2013?

Image

For years now People’s magazine puts together a special magazine specifically for the sexy celebrity men in our life. Winners of this coveted cover have been Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and let’s not forget when they chose Bradley Cooper over Ryan Gosling and the world almost stopped spinning.Anyway this year it seems as though Adam Levine is the front runner for sexiest man alive, here is where I put my foot down and say no. I will not allow for such a thing to happen! I get it, he has tattoos, a nice smile, and can kind of sing but come on really? Out of all the people in the industry you want to use Adam Levine? I have a list of about 10 other people I can think of that deserve it more than this guy.

1. Justin Timberlake just had the year of his life, give it to him!

2. Charlie Hunnam is British AND sexy.

3. Chris Hemsworth is Thor and Australian.

4. Ryan Gosling because every female is in love with him.

5. Usher because I love him.

6. Idris Elba because he is fucking gorgeous and seems like a real badass.

7. Zac Efron because my boyfriend needs a break this year, other than his jaw of course.

Okay so I could only think of 7 guys who really deserve it which is fine by me because these 7 blow that skeezy singer out of the water!

GQ Men of the Year 2013

GQ is one of those magazines that I honestly do not pay much attention to. I feel like they want straight men to read it and use their helpful fashion tips but I don’t think that actually happens. Maybe it does, fuck if I know! Anyway they recently made a top 5 of the men of the year and here you have it.

Matthew McConaughey, Will Ferrell, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, and James Gandolfini

First off I will say that I am 300% behind making James Gandolfini one of the men of the year. He pretty much changed television as Tony Soprano and from what everyone says he was an awesome guy. Great actor+awesome guy+ died too soon= GQ man of the year.
Justin Timberlake is also an obvious shoe in for this man of the year award. In the magazine he kind of sounds like a dick saying that he will never give up on acting and gets mad when people say his movies bomb…because they do…Other than that though he deserves it. Growing up I was always a BSB fan but lets be real Justin Timberlake is quickly taking Michael Jackson’s spot at king of pop since he is constantly reinventing himself and the music he sings.
Kendrick Lamar is an alright choice, I don’t really know too much about him but I have heard his music and it is good. He also called out every rapper ever so he has some balls even though he stands at like 5’2.
Will Ferrell- This one I don’t understand, then again I have never understood the whole love of Will Ferrell, he is alright in my opinion but plays the same character in every movie. He is coming out with Anchorman 2 and everyone is getting their panties in a bunch so it makes yet again, I get why they put him on the cover. Having him as himself and as Ron Burgendy is also a genius idea.
Matthew McConaughey, I fucking hate this choice. I cannot stand Matthew McConaughey and I haven’t for years now. I get it you have a weird stoner like southern drawl but why in the fuck is he on this cover? If it is because he didn’t make a sequel to Fool’s Gold then sign me up. Maybe it was because he lost all that weight for some movie that is coming out soon. Whatever it is, he shouldn’t be on this cover. Just sayin’.

Justin Bieber: Fastest fall from grace of all time.

I have an actual question for everyone that reads my blog, has anyone had a faster downfall than Justin Bieber? It is a true question that I have thought about for a while now. Bieber became big in 2009 and now that it is nearing 2014 everyone seems to be waiting for his mental break down. I feel as though his downfall started when his sweet angelic Canadian voice changed into a southern accent, it was like Madonna having an English accent. I will admit, when Bieber first came out I was in awe that a 15 year old had such talent, I thought he was absolutely incredible! As the years went on and his Christmas album played constantly in the retail store I worked at, I realized how much I hated him. When he covered “All I want for Christmas” I became furious, how dare he cover a Mariah song. Yes, I am aware that she was on the song as well but it was still horrible. His true downfall started after he released the song “Boyfriend” and totally jacked Justin Timberlake’s “Like I Love You” music video. When him and Selena broke up he dropped even further, it was pretty interesting to watch for sure. Now in 2013 after a half sleeve of hideous tattoos, shirtless pictures for days, and then getting filmed by a creepy Brazilian he has lost it. He lost the wow factor that he once had. Now those are only a few things that made him really fall from grace. I might as well add the whole rapping career he thinks he has, the Brazilian brothel that he went to, pissing in mop buckets, getting pulled over every day, and using the term “Wild Kidz” thinking it was a good name. My theory is that now that Justin Timberlake is back there can only be one Justin. Sorry Bieber but I give you one more year then you will be just another joke that people scoff at, a male Lindsay Lohan, a what could have been. If you want to take my advice, stop mumbling through your songs, stop getting stupid tattoos, and stop complaining about not having privacy when you run around shirtless.
