Now here in the Rolling Stone office: New Kids on the Block!! Everyone’s here: Donnie, Jordan, Danny, Joey, and the other guy! Like, OMG, best ever, right!!
We’re turning to our correspondent who will live blog the event here in the RS offices:
12:10 PM: NKOTB arrives here in the RS conference room. Several female staffers mob the guys and pull off Donnie’s baseball cap, revealing a…pet rat named Barnaby
12:20 PM: Joey says his three favorite things are cars, pasta, and long, slow kisses. Two girls faint.
12:28 PM: Donnie says he’s just looking to settle down and raise a family with a woman who can be “sweet to my mother.” Five girls faint.
12:31 PM: Jordan rescues a kitten that has been lodged in a heating vent above the conference room. Nine girls faint.
12:35 PM: A bored Danny bench presses the entire staff of US Weekly. Men’s Journal offers him a cover on the spot.
12:45 PM: Donnie reveals that on their next record, NKOTB will be working with Jon Brion and Brian Eno.
12:47 PM: Donnie says he was lying.
12:49 PM: Joey is asked what his desert island album would be. He says it would be an album of songs written by an 8-year-old girl who passed away just after recording the record. Fourteen girls faint.
12:52 PM: Danny punches someone in the head for a laugh. That girl faints.
12:54 PM: Joey says he was just kidding about the dead 8-year-old girl’s album. He’d just bring The Chronic by Dr. Dre.
12:56 PM: Jordan adopts a puppy.
12:58 PM: A girl gives Donnie a wreath she made out of her hair and dried tears. Donnie says, “I already got too many of these.”
12:59 PM: Jordan’s puppy gives birth to puppies. Twenty girls faint.
1 PM: The boys leave with a medley of “Hangin’ Tough,” “Step by Step,” and a cover of Dylan’s “Isis.”
