Last night on his SiriusXM show “Dirty Pop with Lance Bass,” Lance addressed the rumored NSYNC VMAs reunion. And it was NOT good news:
I have to address the rumors…this morning I woke up to a lot of rumors flying [around] that the NSYNC reunion is happening after eleven years at the VMAs this Sunday. Well, let me tell you how this all came about. Justin Timberlake is getting the Michael Jackson [Video] 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. We all came down here [to Miami] except for J.C. [Chasez]—J.C. stayed in California, he had to work…Joey [Fatone], Chris [Kirkpatrick] and myself went to go see Justin’s last show with Jay Z at the [Sun Life] Stadium last Friday, and I even took a picture of it, it’s on my Instagram…
[it was] really fun and…I think that’s what started the rumor that there’s going to be this big reunion with NSYNC…it’s amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media…[and] how many people are supporting NSYNC. It’s so nice to see because when we ended things [over] ten years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter [fan base], but it’s so cute to see how many people are supporting [us] and NSYNC was even trending.”
