VIDEO: Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell Has Swine Flu (Oink)!

Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys is the latest victim to be diagnosed with Swine Flu, resulting in the cancellation of the band’s New York appearances scheduled for today and tomorrow.

The resurrected teen heartthrobs are in the process of promoting their new album, This Is Us – out tomorrow, their eighth album as a group, and their second without original member Kevin Richardson.

Fellow BSB members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and AJ McCLean have been declared flu-free (THANK GOD), but have still been prescribed Tamiflu so as not to take any chances.

The infamous boy bander issued a heartfelt apology to fans via BSB’s official YouTube channel.  Make sure you have a box of tissues nearby people because this minute and 43 second video is a tearjerker!

If it’s any consolation to Brian, swollen eyes and pasty skin aside, he hasn’t changed a bit in the 13 years we’ve known and loved him.
