- On females and love
- "Looks definitely come second...it's
what's inside that counts."
- "I know a lot of girls
who are just friends - the way I prefer it. I don't really want
to fall in love yet. I prefer to wait a little bit. To be honest,
I've never really fallen in love. I've never felt this strong
sensation...I'm still very young and I have lots of time for
love. The day I find the girl of my dreams I would spoil her
- "It doesn't really matter
to me...as long as she has a good personality and she's really
nice. I don't care if she has blond, dark, or even green hair!
But she's got to be independent and like herself."
- "...to do something
romantic I would take her to the beach when the sun is going
down. The sky would be full of stars, and apart from the sound
of the sea, it would be a very quiet and intimate moment."
- "Love has no age..."
- "Faithfulness is very
important to me...I would be incapable of cheating on my girlfriend.
I couldn't look at her straight in the eye. If I had a girlfriend,
I wouldn't even need to look at other girls."
- "(What I can offer as
a boyfriend is) just me, myself. I'm a very ordinary, down to
earth kinda guy and I hope that's all my girl would need."
- "Character is far more
important than appearance. I like a girl who's honest; that's
very important. She has to have some grit in her, be able to
stand up for herself. But most of all she has to love me, of
- "I look for a girl who's kind in the
heart, and who cares about what I am, not what I do."
- 'Character is far more important than
appearance.' The inner beauty of a person can only be truly discovered
through sharing experiences, like having meaningful conversations
or walking along a beach together. We, as fans, will therefore
never 'know' or 'love' Nick Carter. His character (or anyone
else's) is too complex to be understood through interviews.
- We can only ever know the surface of his
'self'. As he tells us, faithfulness, honesty, independence,
and kindness are important in all relationships. Instead of looking
at Nick Carter as an idealised male or boyfriend, proclaiming
to know and love him, perhaps it is more constructive to focus
on loving 'real' people, and simply admire what Nick says and
does as a human being and a talented singer.
- "I'm pretty much okay
with myself. I think the only thing is to just have fun!"
- "I don't believe in
being mean to anyone. I'm a really peaceful person. That's something
I get from my family."
- "I don't think I am
cute. I think I am a normal looking person."
- "I try not to look in
the mirror that much."
- "I'm not too pleased
with some photos, but you're always going to be your own worst
critic... sometimes you see photos you like and think, 'Wow,
that looks good!', or (sometimes) 'Oh no, I look terrible!'"
- "I can't dance...I consider
myself a terrible dancer. So, in my case, practice makes good...not
better...or perfect. Lots of practice."
- "The real me is a little
more reserved off stage."
- "I don't really think
about (being labelled cute). I suppose it is a little bit embarrassing
these days 'cos I've grown up a lot, especially in the last year."
- "I had a rough time
in school. I was into acting and music, so there were certain
times when I had to step out of school. The kids would notice
me leaving, and I think that made them jealous. But I'm not the
kind of person who would go back and say, "Hahaha! Look
at what I've done!" To all the people who used to pick
on me in school, (singing) is my way of saying that I'm doing
something I love."
- "When I was at school, I used to look
at all the pretty girls and they'd go out with me, but they were
only interested in the cool guys who were really into sport.
I wasn't very popular at school, because of my singing and acting
and stuff. The girls just didn't want to know."
- "I'm not very good with
the other guys
are a group and it wouldn't feel good if I got all the attention.
We get attention just because we're a good team."
- "The guys in the group are my best friends!"
don't think it will ever be over for us. There might be a time
when we have a break from the band but we're all friends - as
close as brothers - so we'd still be together...Me and Brian
even talk about buying houses next door to each other."
- "Backstreet Boys is
the most important thing in my life. My life revolves around
the group. We are very close - simply because we seem to spend
so much time together."
- "If you're a real group,
you'll come out true to yourselves and you'll be together for
a very long time...We feel that we are a real group and we will
be together for a very long time."
- "It's great to have
people thinking about you. People we meet are always cool with
us. We're very lucky."
- "We like to have a close
relationship with our fans. I could go out with one of them but
I don't think it could develop any further."
- "We sometimes get knickers
thrown on stage, but they're not very aerodynamic so they don't
travel very far. We mostly get cuddly toys with phone numbers."
- "Sometimes we get fan
mail...I try to reply to mine personally."
- "We've learned that
our performances make people happy - that's what we're here for."
- "My family comes before
anything. They are everything to me."
- "The travelling does
kinda get gruesome sometimes. I'm away from the rest of my family,
and I miss them."
- "I'm not quite as grown
up as I could be. Whenever I get the chance to hang out with
my family, I head straight for my little brother Aaron's room
- to play."
- "I trust my mum 100%.
She knows me very well and is capable of guessing my thoughts.
I love when she's there."
fame and travelling
- "Having your photograph
taken is like acting...When the photographer tells you to smile,
you have to smile, and sometimes if you're not feeling in a good
mood, you have to find the strength from deep inside."
- "It's hard to get a
- "It can be cool to have
a little bit of privacy."
- "I've been seeing some
stuff on the internet...like, funky stuff...but
most of the time there are imposters."
- "Busy, busy, busy..."
- "To walk into a store
and see your single on a shelf; you can't believe it's you sitting
next to all these artists. It's surprising, but really cool!"
- "We've been to places
like Australia...it's really cool!"
- "I...had a different
childhood from most kids. But it's been alot of fun. I may have
missed out on a few things along the way, but I've also travelled
the world - not many people of my age can say they've done that,
- "Being on my own, with
just the silence of the sea, is such an escape from the constant
screaming of fans on a Backstreet Boys tour. It's something I
need to do - just to get away from it all."
- "The ocean does something to me that
is unexplainable. Just being out there is knowing you're alive!"
- "I'm addicted to Nintendo!
I play sports games and adventure games and role-playing like
Final Fantasy 3. I can't always do what I want to do, like play
basketball, because I can't go outside the hotel. So when I play
Nintendo, I enter a different world and relax."
- "When I come off stage,
I go straight back to the hotel. I love to take a long shower
and then go to sleep. I never seem to take too much time to drop
off after a show. Generally, I'm always very tired and can sleep
- The quotes reflect an individual who is
honest, thoughtful, easygoing, friendly, and willing to share
his thoughts and feelings. Nick appears to be a truly likeable
and down-to-earth person. But this is why we must simply admire
him as a person with singing and performing ability, instead
of being fanatical about his outward appearance. He is, in the
end, just another human being trying to use his talents, like
the rest of us. The difference is that for him to gain popularity
and be successful in the music industry, he must be exposed to
the constant attention of others.
- "You should always be
yourself. Never try to be someone you're not."
- "I'm so lucky. (This
is) something I've been wanting to do ever since I was really
young, and it's something I've worked towards for a long time.
I think anybody can pursue their dreams, no matter what they
do; they can achieve what they want to achieve."
- "Be true to yourself
and believe in your dreams. It isn't always easy, but God has
given us many talents and strengths...if you stay focused and
never give up, you will achieve your full potential."
- "In the end, only love
- "I don't let one day
go by that I don't count my prayers and thank God for what I
- "Live life to the fullest.
We're not cats...we only have one life."
