Around the block and back
There are many things I've feared hearing in my life, but "New Kids on the Block have reunited" is right up there with "You're allergic to whiskey" and "Sean Daly and you are partners on 'Dancing with the Stars' next season."
But here they are again, and The Not So New But Still Annoying Kids are causing problems already. Rollingstone.com reports that NKOTB's appearance on the Today show this morning caused a near stampede of thirysomething-year-old women (dressed as teens for some reason). Shrieks of "Still hot!" and "We love you, Donnie!" echoed through Manhattan. (Sounds of vomiting by males covering the event also were probably audible.)
The group formally announced that a new album is set for release during the summer, to be followed by a fall tour. Let's just hope they meet the same indifferent fate as last year's Spice Girls reunion.
