In an exclusive interview with People magazine, ex-‘N Sync member Lance Bass has revealed that he is gay. Due to rampant rumors and questions about his sexuality (he has been spotted several times in gay clubs), the singer claims he wanted to be outed on his terms. He tells People:
I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys’ careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything…I didn’t know: Could that be the end of ‘N Sync? So I had that weight on me of like, ‘Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it’s bad.’ So I just never did.”
I’m sorry, but this is bullshit. Lance would never do this. Look, I had just gotten out of a pretty bad relationship and I was in a bad place. Lance just said he wanted to go back to his house and talk. I mean, it’s normal for two guys to spoon and watch Monday Night Countdown, right? Oh God….wait, no….oh God!!
Since there are no pictures of Lance around, here are some slightly gay pictures of Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx on MTV’s TRL July 24th:
Update: Here’s Lance pretending to be a straight guy at the Playboy mansion:
