Just when it looks like the Backstreet Boys are poised to take over the world again, A.J. McLean has announced that he’s going to take some time off now before the tour to “get himself right” – i.e. he’s owning up to his substance abuse issues yet again, and he’s returning to rehab.
This decision came after McLean realized that being high all the time was interfering with the band’s preparation for their big summer tour with New Kids on the Block. Â McLean has been tweeting about his return to rehab, his third in the past decade. Â He thanked the fans for there support, and emphasized that he’s doing this because he wants this to be a good year rather than an embarrassing one. Â Excellent choice.
