Following the shocking, quickly refuted accusations of handsy uncleness recently lodged against currently imprisoned boy-band assembler Lou "Big Poppa" Pearlman in the pages of Vanity Fair by some disgruntled former charges, it's hard not to let that salacious baggage taint one's interpretation of what was taking place in this innocent photo appearing in the new issue of the National Enquirer.

We're sure that what we're all seeing is nothing more than Pearlman giving a fun piggyback ride to cherished protege A.J. McLean, and not some sinister incident in which he tazered the young charge into unconsciousness after a poor rehearsal, then headed down to an Orlando beach to show off his favorite new boy-stole.
