Yesterday while researching Hollywood’s dark little secret that it harbors powerful pedophiles and predators, I came across an interview that Howard Stern did with Rich Cronin, the singer from 90’s boy band LFO and holy shit, what an interview! First and foremost, Rest In Peace. Rich died from his battle with Leukemia in 2010. Secondly, I’ve been a Howard Stern listener for almost 20 years and I have to say that this interview is one of the greatest interviews I’ve heard on the show and a lot of that credit goes to Rich, who is an amazing story teller. The majority of the interview focuses on Lou Pearlman, the guy who created The Backstreet Boys, Nsync, LFO and many of the other boy bands of the 90’s and whaddaya know, the guy is a creepy predator who created these boy bands to take advantages of young boys, and it gets you wondering about who are the Lou Pearlman’s of Hollywood? As you start to dig into these matters, you’ll come to the realization that on the surface Hollywood is glitz and glam, but deep in its crevices, below the casting couch, there exist a dark and dirty place, where kids are abused by powerful producers and where parents turn a blind eyed in the name of maintaining their child’s career. Is it any coincidence that so many child stars become fucked up adults??? Just something to think about. Enjoy the interview, its hilariously insightful and disgusting at the same time.
