Backstreet Boys Say Ryan Gosling Told Them Their Band Was 'Never Gonna Work' (Video)

The Backstreet Boys stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night (February 11) and revealed that their longtime pal Ryan Gosling didn’t always believe the band would work out.

The boy band were tasked by host Jimmy to put some of the most pervasive rumors of their career to rest, like their old roommate Ryan Gosling almost joining the band during his Mickey Mouse Club days.

“Long story short, we used to live in the same apartment complex when he was doing The Mickey Mouse Club. Him, Justin [Timberlake], Christina [Aguilera], Britney [Spears], all of them,” AJ McLean said. “We were playing basketball almost every other day. The group had started. I kept telling him how big this was gonna be. And he’s like, ‘Dude. New Kids [on the Block] already did it. This is never gonna work. Just shoot the ball.’”

“Cut to he was wrong and it did work,” McLean quipped. “It worked out for him too,” Nick Carter added.

The guys – which also includes members Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough – also talked about never feuding with *NSYNC, their first time singing together 26 years ago, how their band formed and how their band is like a marriage.

Steve Aoki & Backstreet Boys: 'Let It Be Me' Stream, Lyrics & Download - Listen!

The collaboration came about after Steve invited Nick Carter to his show at Hakkasan, who performed “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” on stage. Two years later, the two acts came together for a collab!

“Being able to work with these guys was so organic and effortless. Collaborating with a group that I’ve been listening to since I was a kid was such a memorable moment for me. This song has a beautiful message and relates to a lot of different people overcoming challenges when you love someone, and love always wins in the end. I’m really proud of this one and know it will touch a lot of people,” said Steve.

“Our collaboration with Steve came about in a very organic way. We had the opportunity to spend some time with Steve at his house really getting to know each other, and the song developed naturally from there. The message behind it is one we think everyone can relate to. It’s about working through any challenges that life brings to be with the person you love. And the importance of that message is something we really tried to show with the music video by having real couples tell their stories,” said the boys.
