Ryan Gosling has been invited to join the Backstreet Boys. Yes, really.
In what is quite possibly our favourite story ever, Backstreet Boy AJ McLean has spoken about the time Ryan expressed an interest in joining the band, but the boys snubbed him.
Now, naturally, they regret the decision, and are reaching out to Ryan with an open invitation to become the sixth member.
AJ tells TMZ that Ryan, who was his childhood neighbour, believed that the band wouldn’t be successful. When they reached the top of the charts, he reached out to the band, but AJ failed to return his call. Awks.
AJ said today: “Ryan, I am so sorry that I didn’t call you back… If we ever want a sixth Backstreet Boy member, I’m gonna call you. You can sing.”
He added about the Gangster Squad star: “He can sing his ass off. He’s not only a great actor and a handsome man.”
That he is, AJ.
Do it, Ryan, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. RM
