The Britney Show Trudges On While Backstreet Boys' New Video Is Kinda Good

Entertainment Weekly dissects the strange week that was Britney Spears' return in the new issue: from the VMAs to the Chris Crocker video.


Speaking of videos, the one for Backstreet Boys' new single (on iTunes now), "Inconsolable," is out. But while I'm trying to determine whether the song is the sonic equivalent of watching paint dry or not, it's nice to find the video isn't as witless as some of the pared-down group's later ones have tended to be. At the very least it scores points for making Howie Dorough and Nick Carter look bounceable for once.

    Inconsolable has grown on me in the worst way -- it's one of my current favorites. A ballad! Imagine.

    And AJ's looking like the hot grandpa he is.

    That Britney cover bears a much more forgiving shot than the current Australian NW Magazine does. Not only that, in huge letters the cover screams "I looked like a fat pig," with barely enough room for the picture of Brit standing on her side.

    :(

    Hmm...I'm not sold on "Inconsolable" yet, but I imagine that could change in the context of the album, if the album isn't full of countless retreads of it.

    Woah at that magazine Adem mentioned--and not in a good way.
