My biggest pet peeve is when comebacks don’t get enough media attention—there are few things that are as important as a celeb or group of celebs second go at fame. Some second time attempts that didn’t get their fair share of excitement include….
1) 1) Cheetah Girls 2 (Which, if were being honest, should just have been called: “Watch Raven Symone get even fatter while eating/singing/being a doosh at the same time”). Just because Sadam Hussein was executed and Brittany Spears was caught without panties and got divorced, doesn’t mean that the weirdo mixed race fivesome shouldn’t have had their fair share of the spotlight in 2006. Don’t even get me started on how Cheetah Girls 3: One World was overshadowed in 2008. Why can’t anyone take Galleria, Chanel, Dorinda, and Aquanette seriously?
2) 2) Lance Bass going gay on the cover of People. No shit, Lance Bass—pretty sure the entire “Digital Digital Get Down” song was you going gay—you guys only use the term “girl” once, and the song was about you cybering with Neil Patrick Harris. Anyways—people paid attention to him for 5 minutes, then forgot all about him.
3) 3) Any finally, lest we not forget, Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2. Opening night in 2004, I was at the Highland Park Village theater with a coke/cherry slushie and popcorn. And alone. My fellow Baby Geniuses fanatics (all 8 of them) laughed nonstop for the entire 88 minutes. Babies, talking chemical equations and sneak attacks, while wetting themselves is funny, no matter what anyone says. Also, the fact that Scott Baio and Jon Voight are overshadowed by “actors” who poop their diapies is amazing.
All of this is to get you HYPED UP. I figured if BACKSTREET’S BACK, the BLOG is BACK TOO.
BSB returns to the scene and you guys get excited for 10 minutes until you see Miley sucking on a bong. DON’T LET MILEY MAKE YOU FORGET ABOUT YOUR CHILDHOOD! BSB IS HANDS DOWN THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIMES. I vow to make 2011 the YEAR OF THE BLOG and The year of the Boys. I am going to make Kevin (if he comes back to the beloved band), Howie, Nick, Brian and AJ proud. So be ready—because it’s going to be better than watching back-to-back episodes of the Suite Life.
