In the 'day,' we never ever missed watching TRL. Seriously. We watched it every day!
Back when Carson Daly was the host and The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Nsync were on the show constantly.
Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I have always loved pop music -- but the new Millennium brought us such incredible JOY. I can't tell you what fun it was to be wrapped up in the pop world -- and constantly dashing off to Las Vegas for concerts.
After years dealing with seriously ill parents, it was like popping out of our cocoons as butterflies. And we've continued with truly joyful lives ever since. Please don't get me wrong here -- I'm not saying we were unhappy people, ever. But there's quite a difference between being happy and being joyful. And so much of it was the MUSIC! How we love it!
Marilyn and I became different people during this time. Friends and associates who didn't know us during those years, often didn't really know us anymore.
What a pleasure it is to sit here and sing along with BSB, appearing on TRL again!
And John Norris interviewing The Boys? Perfect! Carson and John were such an important part of TRL...
I know we haven't really watched the show in years. (Hell, it was never the same after Carson Daly left.) But I'm still SAD to see it come to an end.
On the other hand, I wouldn't have missed TRL for the world!!! Thanks, MTV. And many thanks, TRL!!!
