The Backstreet Boys Admit ‘I Want It That Way’ Makes ‘No Sense’ [VIDEO]

The Backstreet Boys were on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday when a fan called in and asked, “In your song ‘I Want It That Way,’ why do you sing ‘I never want to hear you say/I want it that way’? What way do you not want it to be?”

Well AJ McLean admitted:

“First of all the song makes no sense. There was a completely different version of the song that actually made sense and thankfully we decided to go back to the one that didn’t make sense. I don’t think it would’ve been as big as it was, had it made sense.”
