The Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys Are NOT Touring Together, Everything Is Terrible

Bad news, everyone. Are you sitting down? Make sure you’re sitting down or your sorrow might overcome you and cause you to collapse in a heap on the floor. Here it is: the Spice Girls are not touring with the Backstreet Boys, as previously reported. Avril Lavigne will be opening for BSB.

Though Brian Littrell allegedly told The Sun that a tour was “maybe” in the works, a Backstreet Boys spokesperson confirmed to MTV News that the rumors are absolutely not true, thus crushing the dreams of every woman and gay man on Earth born between 1985 and 1994.

It’s OK, world. We’ll get through this together. Just put on Spice and dance the pain away.
