Backstreet Boys are the 'Tom Brady of pop music'

The Backstreet Boys were in Mansfield this past weekend, and they didn't shy away from bring up the GOAT.  


If you were alive in the 90s, you know the Backstreet Boys brought the house down (sorry NSYNC fans). They were Larger Than Life then, and they still are now. 

That's right. Backstreet's Back .... alright.

This year, the band is celebrating 25 years of catchy hits, and before performing at Kiss Concert 2018 for Boston's Kiss 108, the Backstreet Boys gave some insight into their success that is sure to please Patriots fans.

When asked how they have managed to stay in the spotlight for so long, Nick Carter had a pretty perfect answer.

"You know what we like to say, we like to call ourselves the Tom Brady of pop music," Nick said. 

Nick, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson are putting the GOAT in BSB. Even though their tenure in pop music is comparable to Tom's 19-year-career, sheer career longevity isn't where the comparison ends. Kevin said the guys have to take care of themselves so they are able to perform. 

Just like Tom Brady. 

"We're trying to take on the way he takes care of his body and his instrument," Kevin said. "We're trying to take care of our instrument." 

Whatever they're doing, it's obviously working. And they're showing everybody the Meaning of Being Brady.
