LATEST: New Kids On The Block star Donnie Wahlberg has laughed off claims the reunited boy band are teaming up with Michael Jackson and Madonna.
Recent reports suggested the group had held secret talks with the pop legends about a collaboration on their comeback album.
Wahlberg was quoted as saying, "It's very exciting. It's one big party and everyone wants to join us."
But the singer insists the quote was made up, posting the following comment on the band's blog: "We are not recording with Michael Jackson and/or Madonna. We never claimed to be, either. Good fun reading about it though!"
