I have been a BSB fan since December of 2018, and I have loved every second of it. I know I am what is considered a “young BSB fan” being in my teens, but their talent and charm transcend age in my opinion.
If you happened to read our very first post on the BSB Fangirls blog, you know that the boys played a major role in bringing the two of us together as friends and business partners—before ever even meeting each other in person!
When I first became a fan of the Backstreet Boys, I shared my love of them with my best friends. We would listen to their music and watch their videos on VHS tapes over and over. I was not a “teenie bopper” by any means. I was a 24-year-old working full time and taking full-time college credits. Did I think one day I would be still sharing my love with the backstreet boys 23 years later? No I did not. After 2008 I left the BSB fandom. My friends pretty much left the fandom after Millenium days.
Brian Littrell released Welcome Home on May 2, 2006. I bought a “few” copies the day it went on sale. I’m the type of person who likes a copy of a CD at work and a copy at home. I always feared I would forget to either take it to work or bring it home at the end of the day.
When did you become a full fledge fangirl?
I think I was born a fangirl. I don’t know how or when it began, but there are moments of my life that I look back on and it all kind of makes sense. Whenever I started to like something, I go all in.
Note: This post was originally posted on 2/7/2020, but was moved back to draft the next morning after people started subtweeting about me. This post was meant to make people keep their eyes open like you would in everyday life. It’s about sharing how I’ve been burned and not for the reason many think. People can think it’s bullying or being mean. It’s about helping other fans because since I first posted this, so many others have come to me saying they’ve experienced the same thing. Don’t like what I write? Don’t read it. Simple as that.
When I first started out in the Backstreet Boys fandom, back in the days of 1998 where Yahoo! Chat was the main communication tool before AOL chatrooms and long before the days of social media, I was very wary online. I never posted pictures of myself. I never did any of that.
It’s Nick Carter Week! In honor of Nick turning 40 today, we are celebrating him all week long here at BSBFangirls.com! It’s also fitting that my birthday, as well as my twin sister, Kim’s birthday is Thursday, January 30th, which just happens to be two days after Nick’s (January 28th).
I want to talk about Baylee Littrell. Karah and I enjoyed his special VIP experience. It was the 1st time his meet & greet was part of his soundcheck.
The summer just flew by. I didn’t even get to enjoy it. No swimming, no picnics at the park and certainly no drinking while sitting by the fire lol. I was still on a strong regimen of antibiotics.
Hey, fellow fangirl! We’re Britt + Kelsey. Before we dive into posting on the reg here, we wanted to take a minute to introduce ourselves.
Being a Backstreet Boys fan has been a big part of my life.
24 years of my life to be exact.
When I think of this its actually slightly overwhelming, especially when I think back to all the moments in my life which either involve them, or have them there in the background of my life, like a soundtrack.
“Hey, what are you doing today?”
“Going to the concert.”
“What are you up to now, though?”
“…getting ready for the concert.”
Let’s face it, no matter how many times we explain it, men will never understand the hours leading up to a concert – or why we spend all day getting ready for something that doesn’t start till 8 pm. Whether it’s still deciding on your outfit day of, waiting for your blow out, or securing your spot in line for GA – it’s an all-day affair. In fact, I get up earlier on show days then I do most days for work (even if was just upstairs at Planet Hollywood).
