hello everybody...i'm anitalian fan of the bsb...im here to propose an idea we had:we wrote a letter in order to support bsb during their next album...all we want todo is support them, wether in 5 or 4...so we need signatures to show them how many fans in the world are here to stay next to them...please read carefully...don't mistake the sense of the letter..it's not a petition to have kevin back..we perfectly know that is his decision, but a way to saly to them "hey, no matter what we're here for you!
here's the letter
WE THE PROUD BACKSTREET BOYS FANS,
Accept Kevinís decision to leave the group. We understand the there are moments in life in which a man has to come up with tough decisions and to live for himself for a while.
We want to say that no matter what we will always support the Backstreet Boys and their music, even if they will remain 4, and especially we will support Kevin in his future projects and hope many life achievements!
We only complain for this solution, which seems too drastic to us. We are sure Kevin needs sometime to put order in his life and to achieve something as a single man, something that itís only his. So why not giving him some time for himself?
Weíve been waiting for years for them to come back, they canít leave us so, none of them!
So we are ready to wait other 6, 8 or even10 years without albums, only to let Kevin, or whoelse in the group needs, have his own life. We donít need a Backstreet Boys incomplete album right now, we can wait all the time they need! Nick and Brian have had their own space, so we are sure Kevin deserves his too now. You guys have always helped each other through the worst moments in your life, now itís Kevinís turn to have some support from you and from us. Letís give him time to think about this drastic decision and to try to find a better way out.
All we wanted to show this way is that we love the Boys in 5 as theyíve always been, but we will accept all their decisions because we respect them. We only want to say that even if we are pressuring you guys always asking you to make new albums and in some way to live for us only, this time itís not worth it! We prefer another album in 2017 with all of you, than one in 2007 with only a part of you!
Kevin will always be our elder brother, our adviser and best listener, but more than everything else, he will always be a Backstreet Boy! Please come back home!
We love you guys.
THE FANS
so far I have collected all the signatures you gave me, but if have more send your name surname and nationality to these email addresses:
bsbsupport4ever@hotmail.com
ari1985@hotmail.it

BooHoo WahWah So the Backdoor Boyz are losing one of their own. Maybe the No Talent Champions of the World should just hang it up and call it quits. No one really gives a s**t.

To all the guys i love and live for your music.when i was 8 years old i started listening to you and ever since then i couldn't stop.Your music has inspired me to follow my dreams of becoming a singer.All i ask is for kevin to try and reconsider if not i can understand.I also want to let you guys know that whenever i was sad or mad or any other emotion i knew that i could turn to your music for comfort. So please kevin reconsider.And to all the Backstreetboys THANK YOU for your inspirasional music and I Love you guys.

Just when the MAJORITY of us thought it was safe.
First, BSB (as with N'Sync, Britney and others) will forever be linked to that snake Lou Pearlman and his hinchmen; like Johnny Wright and Maurice Starr. You ARE who you hang with, people. No doubt about it.
Second, Lou and his guys are in extremely hot water (more like deep space s**t) now with several banks, people, the State of Florida, etc.
Third, the album will most likely fail anyway upon release, so why bother. And even IF someone is stupid enough to put up the cash for promotional costs~oh, that's right, Lou and his guys (which may very well include some of Lou's "friends" at Jive and other record comps.) don't have any money right now for BSB's promotional costs. All assets are to be frozen soon by the courts in Florida for over 130 MILLION dollars that Lou and his guys owe to various people and corps. And the dollars keep adding up. Oh, this does not include INTEREST.
Fourth, I and others are willing to bet that this is one of the main underlying reasons as to why recording the album has been placed on hold for the moment; according to MTV and other news media.
Fifth, some of the monies Lou and his guys collected from these banks and people, etc. were used to hurt, injure, or kill off (with hit men) other more worthy artists between 1988 and today; so that BSB, N'Sync, Britney, Christina, Jessica, and others who were connected to Lou and his guys could sail ahead and become these "big teen stars". I and my friends are amazed that any of these boy bands and girls and those even remotely connected to Lou Pearlman can even begin to show their faces in public. Apparently, they all have the consiousness of a chainsaw.
BSB and the other boy bands (and girls) should be very grateful if they get only five years in the main; especially when that five years (or 15 minutes, whichever comes first) has been purchased with "blood money".
If I were BSB, I would simply go and write my memoires. There is truly nothing left for them to do at this point.
