The Top 13 Signs a Boy Band Member is Depressed
- Even though it takes an hour or more, he now insists on tuning his own guitar before each show.
- Deep sighs of despair during his double-spin, kick-kick, hippy-hippy-thrust dance sequence.
- His oldest just graduated high school.
- The girl he just dumped slammed the door on the way out, and that vase was Waterford crystal, thank you very much.
- "I got gloom! Yeah! Girl you know it! (Uh!) Wooo, melancholy!"
- Doesn't even try to resist being put in his carrier at night.
- Lately, he favors jumpsuits in dark, somber earth tones.
- Changes name from "A.J." to "A-Lo."
- Complicated dance moves and arm gestures replaced by foot shuffling and a half-heartedly extended middle finger.
- Refuses to subject himself to the hardball questions of Larry King.
- *N SHRINK
- Changes name of new single from "Oh, Baby Baby Baby" to "Oh, Baby Baby."
