ChatYahoo_Lisa: Nick is Here!!!!!
ChatYahoo_Lisa: Welcome Nick
venyssa999: Nick, you're great!!! I love you. Do you ever feel like you missed out because you never played high school sports, attended the prom, or went to graduation because you were tutored?
Nick: Of course I do. I think it was a definite sacrifice to make in order to do this, but at the same time I wouldn't give this up for the world but again as I've said there are things I wish I could've done
samantha_kwok: What would you do if you only had twenty four hours to live?
Nick: I would play some Nintendo! No... I would call anybody, everybody I knew... I would just try to have a whole day with everybody I knew so I could see them one last time
ChatYahoo_Lisa: What would be the song you would want to sing on that day?
Nick: I would have to sing, it's a church song I used to sing with my great grandfather who passed away. It would be Amazing Grace. I used to sing it with my great grandfather. He used to play the organ in church and I used to sing when I went over to his house while he played
hyper_lady: Nick, Why did you cut your hair???????
Nick: Well, you must be talking recently.. but I didn't cut my hair, well I did, I had to trim it down b/c it was getting way too long.. in the Teen People issue people were saying how it was way too long and I was getting kind of tired of that plus summertime came around and it was getting way too hot.
MusicFreak132: Who's Your Fave Spice Girl?
Nick: I don't have a favorite Spice Girl, simple as that :) They were cool enough for what they are, but I never really got into them all that much
Dava_loraine: what is the worst part about being famous
Nick: I'm never really home that much... I'm always touring and I really dont have a chance to relax chill and do nothing. Recently I did, but we're always touring.. so really being home and seeing all my family and friends.
N_Tash_C: where's the best place you've ever traveled since being in the Backstreet Boys?
Nick: I dont know... Austrlia was really nice. Spain was really nice. Pretty much just places that have been on the beach. I like the ocean, so that's probably why I really like those places so much
aletha1983: what really matter?
Nick: I think a girl should, in general what I look for is somebody who can handle the pressures and things that I do. A lot of the reasons we dont have girlfriends is becuse of all the pressures we undertake.. I mean you have to be attracted to a person, but you can put a not so good looking girl next to a gorgeous girl and if the not so good looking girl has a better personality, then you'll go that way.. Some people will say "yeah right"
zakotra: what is your favorite animated cartoon show?
Nick: Just recently I went to the movie Quest for Camelot.

w_harty: If you could have a super power for a day what would it be and why?
Nick: I would have to have the ability to clean up the ocean. To help the world in some way... if that question was asked to somebody they'd say I'd love to have super jumping powers, I'd like to give back to the world, and if I can't do that I'd want to do something else for it.

Nick: My biggest fear in life would have to be... well I really can't stand sharks although I'm fascinated by them... well not that I can't stand them.. but my fear is being in the water and being attacked by them. But I'd really have to say flying, I hate flying... if there's an opportunity to take a bus or fly I'd rather take a bus. I don't want to step on a plane where you don't have control...

I played it so much I ruined that CD... then I bought another one and lost that one... and lost anohter one so I've contributed to the Hammer foundation :)
N_Tash_C: what's it like on the tour bus?

Nick: Well... there was one show where I ripped the back of my pants out... and we had ducked down, done a move or something, it felt like it ripped, but I was like "maybe not"... but then I felt this breeze coming up from somewhere and I put my hand back there and I could actually touch my whole butt! That was pretty bad.
BackieJ: Nick, what kinda of pizza is your favorite?
Nick: Cheese, lots of cheese, tons of cheese. I'll never forget, we were up in Canada somewhere and me and Brian were up watching a Dodgers game or something and the pizza we ordered had cheese and inch thick! It was gooey and cheesy! And the Piazza hit a homer to win the game -- it was pretty cool. And at that time we were calling Mick Piazza "pizza face" b/c of his name.
Angel_heaven20: Describe a typical day
Nick: There is type A, type B, Type C. Type A would be a normal tour day -- you sleep from 11 at night, you just did a show, and then you sleep all thway until noon, 2 or 3.. you wake up, pack and get on the bus and travel to the venue then you do it all again. Then there's type B, a promotional tour which is hell on earth -- well it can be fun too.. but you're traveling all different places and working all hours of the day doing photo shoots, television shoots.. etc. Then there's type C: The day off. Which you just gotta love! :)
