Not even Nick Lachey is safe from the brutally honest criticism of a toddler. The former boy bander joked to ET that Camden, his 3-year-old son with wife Vanessa Lachey, is not a fan of his music.
"I sing around the house and my son tells me to stop!" Nick said with a laugh. "He says, 'Daddy, stop singing.' I go, 'Do you understand that people used to pay daddy -- and hopefully will again -- pay daddy to sing? He has no clue. He has no concept."
The 42-year-old is reuniting with his 98 Degrees bandmates this summer, headlining the nostalgia-filled "My2K Tour." O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera are also on tap to support.
"It's just gonna be a great trip down memory lane," Nick said. "I'm sure we're gonna see a lot of famous faces from back in the day."
"We'll dust off some dance moves," Drew Lachey teased. "That was never our focus, we always focused more on the vocals and the music, but we're gonna put on a good show with lots of energy."
April 3 marked the 20th anniversary of 98 Degrees first signing to Motown Records. Their debut self-titled album was released in July of 1997.
"It seems like just yesterday, it really does," Jeff Timmons said. "Twenty years has just kinda flown by, but fortunately we still love to do what we do, we still have fans that embrace our music, we're able to do this tour."
"We can still tolerate each other," Drew chimed in, while Nick offered: "We're still immature as ever, so it just feels like yesterday."
"We haven't grown up at all," Jeff echoed. "Not a bit."
Tickets for the "My2K Tour" go on sale beginning Friday, April 29, and fans can definitely expect to hear hits like "I Do" and "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)" when the guys hit the stage. Plus, said Justin Jeffre: “There will be a few surprises.”
"I think probably 'I Do' has been the song that's stood the test of time. It's been a lot of people's wedding songs, so I think that's probably the one that people will say, 'Oh, that song meant to much to me,'" Nick said. "But I think 'Una Noche' is the one people get most excited about in concert. Takes 'em back to 2000."
When the group last reunited in 2013, touring with Boyz II Men and New Kids on the Block, their families came along for the ride. The experience was “more raucous” than their early touring days, Jeff quipped.
This time around, the performers are working on creating a more balanced environment.
"On paper, it sounds like a great idea to have your kids on the road with you," Nick confessed. "In practicality, when you get in bed at 2 a.m. after a long show and meet and greets and the whole thing, and then your son wakes up at 6 a.m. ... It's like, 'Hmm. Whose idea was this?' I mean, it's great in one sense, but then it also makes it a lot easier when it's just us out there doing what we do."
