Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean has a baby on the way any minute, but he still found a moment to talk to Hollywire's Chelsea Briggs about the BSB comeback — or "rebirth," as he prefers to think of it — along with his affinity for Michael Jackson and what he's most thankful for (in honor of Thanksgiving).

But the real scoop, of course, is what he thinks of the recent resurgence of boy band mania — in particular, One Direction. Sorry to anyone who likes animosity and drama, but A.J. has nothing but love for his juniors.

Watch the video to see what he had to say!
