After breaking from One Direction last year, Zayn Malik has just released his first solo album, 'Mind of Mine', but will he be a solo success story?
They say breaking up is hard to do, but leaving a famous boyband and going solo must be even harder. Last May Zayn Malik broke teenaged hearts when he announced his departure from One Direction, but one year on he’s just released his first solo album. But now Mind of Mine has finally dropped, Zayn might want to read up on some other former boyband members who tried their hand at a solo career, to varying degrees of success.

Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of is in cinemas nationwide for one night only on 26th February, followed by a special performance by the band broadcast live by satellite. For info: www.backstreetboys.com/international
Lively and personal but never quite breaking the surface, this documentary about the boy band phenomenon traces both their 20-year anniversary project as well as their journey to the top and back. It's packed with terrific material that fans will love, and it explores some darker sides of the bandmates' lives, but it skims over any difficult aspects of their experience together. Still, they are energetic and ready for the challenge of taking the world by storm all over again.
To prepare for their 20th anniversary tour in 2013, Backstreet Boys A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and Nick Carter travel to London to record a new album outside the limelight. Back in America, they also revisit their hometowns in Florida and Kentucky, meeting the teachers who inspired them, family members and old friends. But preparing to tour is a much more challenging prospect, as they try to get fit enough to do the old dance routines. And Brian is having a mental struggle that's affecting both his voice and his physicality. This brings up old tensions between them, even as they know that they can never perform without all five of them on stage.

NSYNC will be reuniting on Sunday (15th February) for a special appearance on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary show.
Nsync have announced they will be reuniting - but only for a one off appearance! The group, which was hugely successful in the 90s and early 00s, will be making a special guest appearance on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary show. The show will be aired on Sunday (15th February).
Justin Timberlake will reunite with the other members of NSYNC for their Saturday Night Live appearance.
Success came and went for Backstreet Boys, but 20 years on, they're still a team.
The Backstreet Boys' time in the spotlight was a limited one at best, with so many elements contributing to their sudden fame and subsequent chart plunder. They unveiled a fresh new sound last year and now mark their return with a new documentary entitled 'Show 'Em What You're Made Of'.
Backstreet Boys ponder their career in a new documentary
The American boyband had their biggest career peak in 1999, but it wasn't long before they became another forgotten about boyband. They seemed to become an overnight hit in the UK and Europe, and soon they stormed their own nation. However, the success was blighted by lawsuits against their manager Lou Pearlman, who allegedly stole a large proportion of the band's earnings, not to mention problems with Jive Records, Nick Carter's desire to pursue a solo career, Kevin Richardson's departure and A.J. McLean's drug abuse confession.
In the late 90's and early 00's, The Backstreet Boys were the most powerful boy band in the world. After discovering that they had not been particularly popular in the US, the band travelled overseas and became a phenomenon in Europe. But the European scene was not enough for the American band, and they had to crack the US. With a career spanning years of highs and lows, The Backstreet Boys made their way from nothing, to Europe, to worldwide sensation. But what does that sort of strain does that success put on otherwise ordinary people? And just how does anybody overcome it?
'Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of' is an upcoming documentary about the much loved boy band from documentary director Stephen Kijak. The film was set in motion when the band decided to meet in London in 2012 to work on a new album, yet they decided that they wanted to make a movie instead, telling the story of their band and its success. The band contributed all the music to the film, with a release date set for 30th January, 2015 in the US, and a worldwide release date of 26th February, 2015.
Joey Fatone has told fans not to expect an N Sync reunion anytime soon, while Nick Carter should have covered his ears.
Don’t expect N Sync to reunite anytime soon, if former member Joey Fatone’s comments are anything to go by. The singer has dispelled any talk of the boy band getting back together this week, whilst also taking a sly dig at the recently reformed Backstreet Boys.
Joey Fatone is not counting on an N Sync reunion
Last year Fatone and the rest of the N Sync boys staged a mini reunion at the MTV Video Music Awards where former bandmate Justin Timberlake was honoured. But it seems that this was one time deal for the ‘Bye Bye Bye’ hit makers, who don't have any further plans together.
Nick Carter is off the market as he marries longtime love Lauren Kitt
Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter might have crushed a few teenage dreams this weekend when he married girlfriend Lauren Kitt on Saturday. Nick’s Backstreet Boys bandmates where on hand for the nuptials as US Weekly reports AJ McLean, Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell were among the guests at the outdoor ceremony in Santa Monica.
Just married: Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt
The 33 year old singer proposed to longtime girlfriend Lauren last year during a romantic getaway to the Florida Keys. The fitness expert and actress walked the aisle on Saturday in an off-white strapless gown with a bouquet of white flowers. The couple are said to be seriously loved up, with an eyewitness telling US Weekly, “At the end of the ceremony they shared the longest wedding kiss I've ever seen. A full minute later they were still kissing. They seem crazy in love and thrilled to be married. You could feel the love bursting out of them.” Tears were also shed as Nick read out his own hand written vows to his bride to be.

Oh dear. How much does 25 bring the average age for bankruptcy down?
It’s pretty tragic, but that’s life. Aaron Carter – younger brother of Nick Carter – has filed for bankruptcy at the tender age of 25. Now 25 isn’t really that tender, but when it comes to filing for bankruptcy, you usually expect it from someone 40+.
Then again, Carter started singing when he was about 2. He has assets worth just $8,232.16 – including computer and music equipment and $60 in cash – but owes creditors more than $2 million in liabilities. It’s the $60 in cash that we find the most depressing.
But not as depressing his poor dog, the one he valued at $0. Or did he do that so they wouldn’t take the little fella away from him? Is that how it works? We really, really hope so. At least then Aaron and King can hang out together in the park. That’s free.
