AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys praises Taylor Swift as one of the most down-to-earth and modest artists in the industry.

AJ McLean will forever admire Taylor Swift as an incredibly significant figure in his life. The memory of how Taylor warmly interacted with his 11-year-old daughter Elliott will always hold a special place in his heart. AJ is also the father of 6-year-old Lyric with his ex-wife Rochelle Deanna Karidis.

During the May 28 episode of the Getting Grilled with Curtis Stone podcast, he mentioned how his daughter has met his oldest three times. The most recent meeting made a big impression on him because his daughter remembered her name. He was backstage when she suddenly said, “Ava,” which was especially surprising because this happened before his daughter changed her name four years ago. The fact that she remembered her name really impressed him as a dad.

For the former Backstreet Boys member, being in the public eye has its challenges, so meeting Taylor Swift was like a dream come true for him.

According to him, she is definitely one of the most down-to-earth and modest performers I have ever come across. It’s almost like, “There must be something wrong with her. She must have a hidden dark side.” But surprisingly, there isn’t one.
