While AJ McLean wasn’t part of the Mickey Mouse Club with JT and Ryan Gosling, he’s seen the videos — and he’s convinced Ryan may have the better voice! Watch his new interview.
There are so many good looking men involved in this conversation, I’m not sure how to even get into it. AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys was recently asked about the rumor that Ryan Gosling almost joined BSB; not only did he explain that the rumor was kind of true, he also went on to say how freakin’ good Ryan was (there’s video proof of that).
“There was a rumor that happened a long time ago,” AJ told TMZ at the airport when asked about Ryan joining BSB back in the day. “Him and I used to live in the same apartment complex years ago, and we used to shoot ball together back in the day. Something happened, I guess once we lost one of our original members. There was talks of him wanting to audition or maybe he did — I don’t even know!”
Ok, we all would have loved seeing Ryan star in BSB, but Kevin Richardson left the band in 2006, two years after The Notebook came out, so it would have been a little strange if he joined then!
Anyways, AJ also went on to say that he’s seen videos of Justin Timberlake and Ryan singing together — and that Ryan may just be better. “He can sing, in some ways, a little bit better than JT I think,” he said. “Justin’s fantastic, don’t get me wrong and he’s a good friend — they’re obviously different — one’s more rock.
He also added that “if they went head to head, it would be a really awesome match!” We have to say, just from this video of Ryan singing with Justin… and JC Chasez, we agree this would be awesome. Can’t they all just be in one big band? (Ryan totally should have been in Dead 7!)
So, who do you think is the best?
