Lance Bass weighs in on 'N Sync reunion rumors


Lance Bass has responded to reports suggesting his former boy band 'N Sync is preparing to reunite at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

The rumor mill was sent into overdrive on Tuesday with speculation that the "Bye Bye Bye" hit makers will perform together at the ceremony when former band member Justin Timberlake receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Bing: More 'N Sync reunion rumors

Bass weighed in on the gossip during his SiriusXM radio show, Dirty Pop, but he stopped short of confirming whether the performance will take place. He said, "Justin Timberlake is getting the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award this Sunday at the awards, so of course people are automatically going to think we're going to be there performing, but this is exactly how it happened and I knew these rumors were going to fly."

Bass admitted he feels partially responsible for sparking the excitement by posting a photo of himself with bandmates Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick on Instagram.

He adds, "I think that's what started the rumor that there's going to be this big reunion with 'N Sync. It's amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media (and) how many people are supporting 'N Sync. It's so nice to see, because when we ended things (over) 10 years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter, but it's so cute to see how many people are supporting (us), and 'N Sync was even trending."

I hope they do! It would be cool to see my old favorite boy band do a little show. Its been a long time for most of them so I'm sure it will be funny and awesome at the same time. P.S. It really is so immature and unnecessary to hate on gays...Come on people get a life, its 2013 for God's sake and nobody cares about your ignorant changes nothing. God loves all his children....even the ones who's robes are sparkly rainbow colored!!! ;-)

While I have respect for him being a homosexual, his input does not have any weight.
