Nick Lachey’s Advice to the Guys in Modern Boy Bands: ‘Stay Away From Taylor Swift’ [VIDEO]
Because, you know, he was in that one that wasn’t N’SYNC or the Backstreet Boys or New Kids on the Block or O-Town or Dreamstreet. And now they’re reuniting to compete against the likes of One Direction and the Wanted.
Oh, and speaking of One Direction, Lachey has a bit of advice on how they can stay relevant. (Is this one of those “do as I say, not as I do” things?)
While Lachey’s 98 Degrees bandmate Jeff Timmons offered sincere wisdom like, “Surround yourselves with good people; enjoy the ride,” the divorced, re-married, erstwhile ‘Newlyweds’ star and new dad offered something else.
“Oh! I’m too late on that one,” he added. “I didn’t get to [that advice] fast enough … [The song will] be a hit, but it will be about you.”
Perhaps realizing he should probably take a seat, Lachey ultimately conceded with perhaps the truest words he’s ever spoken: “They’re making money. They don’t need our advice.”
