Backstreet's Back -- Eventually
Members of Backstreet Boys have been tweeting for months that they’re recording a new album, but fans shouldn’t hold their breath. At the Los Angeles Police Department’s Memorial Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament on May 21, Nick Carter and A.J. McLean told Overheard that they’re in no hurry. “It’s our 10th album, so we are taking our time,” said McLean, who sported black fingernails. (“Sometimes I paint them pink for my daughter,” he explained.) He added: “We don’t have a record company, so we are doing it on our own.”
?Kesha: ‘Not Allowed To Talk To You’
Kesha was not about to jeopardize her appearance at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22. The “TiK ToK” singer, whom producer Dr. Luke initially blocked from performing at the BBMAs until she agreed not to discuss her litigation with him, attended photographer Markus Klinko’s David Unseen exhibit of David Bowie images at Mr. Musichead Gallery in Los Angeles on May 19. Kesha, who arrived with transgender Internet star Gigi Gorgeous, mingled freely, laughing and taking photos with fans. But when Billboard approached her for a comment, she politely declined, saying, “I am not allowed to talk to you. Sorry. See you Sunday [at the BBMAs].” She then mimed locking her mouth shut with a key. Her rep did not respond to a request for comment.
