NKOTB - Hangin Tough

Ok, does NKOTB revival kinda freak anyone else out? So I loved New Kids, I was obsessed with them. My mom never let me buy all the branded merchandise but I did have all their Teen Beat pictures taped to my doors. I even got to see them in concert once, it was the thrill of my life at the time.

But, now I'm not that interested in them. I watched their new video for "Single" this weekend, I think I saw it 2 or 3 times over the course of changing channels throughout the weekend.

I can't get over Donnie, he was so rough, handsome, and cocky back then, I loved Donnie. Now, sorry but he looks old (granted he is old), still has a nice body though and looks like he could have had a lil work done. But, him rapping with Ne-Yo, I can't take it seriously, sorry guys.... I love you, but its not working for me.

And poor Jonathan and Danny.... they aren't even singing on this track. Danny, you always kinda looked like a monkey to me, but now you look like a monkey on the "juice". I never understood why he was in the group to begin with... sorry Danny.

Even with saying all that, I'm willing to give them another chance. The song had a nice hook, thanks to Ne-Yo, but I don't know, I'm not sold yet.

But, all this got me thinking.... come on Mark Walberg (who hates it if anyone calls him Marky Mark). Please come out of retirement and bring on the rap especially in your Calvins. Now, that's something I think I could deal with....
