Lance Bass Really Wants N-Sync Reunion, Says Justin Is Too Busy
Bass would get back together in a heartbeat, but does Justin have bigger fish to fry?
The 1990s pop group performed together for the first time in 11 years on Sunday, though singer Bass was cautious when chatting to the Associated Press about further plans, "It would be lovely to do it, but we got nothing planned," he said.
Part of the problem is the schedule of Justin Timberlake, who scooped several gongs at the VMAs including the big one: best video, for Mirrors. JT's comeback has been a phenomenal success, reinstating him as one of the world's biggest pop-stars after an equally successful foray into the movie world.
"Who knows what will happen when he's off tour," said Bass of his former band-mate, "It's simply not part of the conversation right now. We just focused on that one performance.If we did anything like that, I think we would come up with something real special where we could actually call it "The Reunion.'"
Bass, along with Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez, joined Timberlake on-stage to celebrate his Michael Jackson Vanguard Awards - the VMA's equivalent of a lifetime achievement award.
Bass said the build-up to the performance was a pure adrenaline rush, "We had to perform in the middle of the arena so there was no way of getting us out there without being seen," he said, "So they dressed us in big ole hoodies to pretend we were the stage hands. So we would push out the stage and do all the stage hand stuff until we got to the area and hid out beneath a staircase."
N-Sync have sold over 50 million albums during their career, which included performances at the World Series, the Super Bowl and the Olympic Games.
