Throwback Thursday: @backstreetboys on the 1999 VMAs!

Way back in 1999, I was lucky enough to be the “talent escort” for the Backstreet Boys dancers.  Ironically I wasn’t a big fan at the time…how times have changed! I still have this t-shirt as a memento! 🙂 Check  out their awesome performance that...

Video: “Hey Mr. DJ” from #BSBCruise2014
