October 11th: Speaking of their next album, its due out in April. So now we have to wait even longer!!

October 16th: After five years of public appearances, interviews, and touring, the Boys felt that they have grown up and outgrown the Wrights. "Management companies and people can take you to a certain level, and then when it feels like you're not really growing, you know, we as artists and even in a management situation, you feel like, 'Okay, let's do something about it'," said Brian. Now the group is trying things out on their own and they now have self-management. "We have weekly business meetings, we're either going to get new management or we're either going to get a consultant. And right now the phone is ringing off the hook," said Kevin. He also said, "We would love to just go out on stage and just focus on pleasing the crowd and recording great songs and having a great career as an artist, but we've grown up and we've seen some things that we weren't happy with and we wanted to make changes and we did that and thank God we did it successfully without compromising our music or our career." We wish them luck with their future plans!!!!

December 8th: Congratulations to the Boys for winning Best Group at the 1998 Billboard Music Awards. The also won in the Adult Contemperary Single category. The Boys performance was awesome too. If you didn't see the Awards, you missed a good show. There is a bit of bad news for all you Brian fans. In fact, we're still in shock. BRIAN GOT BACK TOGETHER WITH LEIGHANNE!!! They were seen at the Billboard Awards together, by us (LeAndra & Dalila) and 5 other girls who went to the Awards with us, holding hands and everything. It was pretty sickening. Also, Nick was with a girl who we strongly suspect is his girlfriend. So, keep an ear out all you Nick fans. Who knows? It might be true. And to all you AJ fans, AJ sent a special shout of love to an unknown girl. Could he have a new love interest or did he hook up with Amanda again? We wish we knew.
