Brian, The "Nice" Backstreet Boy, Has Swine Flu



A surprise awaited us upon arriving at TW HQ this morning: the Backstreet Boy's new full-length comeback (fingers tightly crossed!) album, This Is Us, resting quietly on our desk. PLEASE AND THANK YOU. Upon diving into the deep end of the Interweb shortly thereafter? News that Brian Littrell, the one member of the boy band group your parents would have wanted you to bring home, has contracted swine flu. NEIN! The diagnosis comes just as the Backstreet Boys (now sans Kevin) were set to make a number of promotional appearances in New York this week, including a canceled performance on CBS' Early Show yesterday morning. Remaining Backstreet Boys as well as the band's touring crew have since been prescribed rounds of Tamiflu. Get well soon, Brian! Sincerely! (via People)
