New Kids on the Block

Now you are a true classic. New Kids on the Block is one of the pioneers of the modern-day boy band era we know today and the guys had to work hard for their success...and certainly enjoyed it! Just like the NKOTB guys, you are willing to put in the work and also eager to enjoy the benefits. While you're enjoying your success, don't forget to take it all in and be smart about your next move. Tomorrow's success is never promised so be sure to keep making smart moves in your life and career, and nothing will stop your rise.

Boyz II Men

Ah, so you're the grown type of boy band. Since their start, Boyz II Men have been known for both their emotional and sexy soulful sound that blended elements of a cappella and hip-hop. If you're Boyz II Men, you're confident in who you are to be able to take risks and experiment, but also stay true to who you are. The boys of Boyz II Men knew they could out-sing anyone, but they shined because they brought back R&B to the mainstream with a new take on the sound.

Backstreet Boys

BSB, baby. Backstreet Boys are one of the modern era of boy band's biggest success stories and they've done so by focusing on what makes them special and owning wherever they are in life. BSB has gone from R&B to classic balladry to hip-hop to synth-pop, and done so with their legion of loyal fans loving every moment. Just like Backstreet, you are know who you are and can move confidently through your different interests while staying true to yourself. You take in your surroundings, but never lose yourself and that is so important.

*NSYNC

No doubt about it, *NSYNC was a one-of-a-kind sensation that set records that are nearly impossible to break. The guys took a moment to find who they were as a band, but once they hit their sweet spot ("Bye Bye Bye," anyone?), they were unstoppable. Just like Justin, JC and the crew, you too might have been on a journey to find your true self due to your many interests which is totally fine! Keep searching for where you thrive because once you do, wow, there's no telling what you will accomplish. Trust us.

B2K

B2K was one of the biggest R&B-pop acts of the 2000s, earning No. 1 hits, making movies and making connections all over the industry. If B2K is your spirit boy band, you have a grand vision and aren't thinking small when it comes to your future. You'll do what's necessary to get to the next step, but make sure you don't forget the people around you that have been helping and supporting you throughout the years. Keep yourself rooted throughout everything and there's no way you can't dominate.

One Direction

And our latest boy band sensation. While we wait to see who's next to take the boy band crown (PRETTYMUCH, we see you), take comfort in the fact that you've connected with a band that was able to become a global sensation in a way we've never seen a past boy band do. 1D looked to social media and connecting with fans no matter where they were in the world to make them feel special and create the incredible force we know as Directioners today. Just like 1D, you are thinking larger and more abstractly than most and while sometimes that be isolating or make things lonesome, just know there are a lot of people who admire and look up to you, and you can always reach out for help. Even if your fans think os, you're not invincible and don't need to be. Stay strong no matter what!

One Direction

And our latest boy band sensation. While we wait to see who's next to take the boy band crown (PRETTYMUCH, we see you), take comfort in the fact that you've connected with a band that was able to become a global sensation in a way we've never seen a past boy band do. 1D looked to social media and connecting with fans no matter where they were in the world to make them feel special and create the incredible force we know as Directioners today. Just like 1D, you are thinking larger and more abstractly than most and while sometimes that be isolating or make things lonesome, just know there are a lot of people who admire and look up to you, and you can always reach out for help. Even if your fans think os, you're not invincible and don't need to be. Stay strong no matter what!

Dec. 13: SZA For Fenty Beauty

In case you haven’t heard, as part of the incredibly popular Fenty Beauty Collection, Rihanna is launching a new line of lipsticks, and we want EVERY shade. Although we have to wait a bit for them to drop, we can see a couple teasers before then. In one photo SZA gorgeously models a dark green shade called Midnight Wasabi. Can it be December 26th, already?!
