Lance Bass of N'Sync Comes Out Of The Closet

LANCE BASS, band member of N SYNC, says he's gay and in a "very stable" relationship with 32-year-old actor Reichen Lehmkuhl, winner of season four of CBS' "Amazing Race."

"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," he tells the People magazine.

I'm pretty sure everyone knew he was gay when N Sync first started making music. You can't possibly be in a "band" like that and NOT be gay. So his whole 'shock-surprise' coming out really isn't news at all, lol. Sorry to rain on his 'over-powering' parade, but...well, but I'm not.

This has to be the most METAL story I've ever heard in my life. \m/ \m/

But really, he's just stating what all of us have assumed for the last decade. What would have really amazed me would be if he announced that he wasn't gay. Of course, I'd just assume he as lying. Whatever, I still don't care.

LMFAO Derrick, thats hilarious. I thought it'd be funny to see the flames for this guy, and to actually without a doubt prove it, Im sure everyone thinks Timberlake is gay, but without proof its a dice roll.

First I actually met this fa**ot in a restaraunt at Universal Studios like 5 years ago, had a bunch of girls with him that made me kinda question if he was gay or not, finally its been confirmed he is.
Second what the hell is this doing on Metal Underground

All those years of hearing people say "N'Sync are gay!"...Turns out they were at least 1/5 correct.

As non-straight as that Timberlake kid seems, anyone who f***s Britney Spears for ? number of monthes would -have- to be straight....

Now if he would only sing the part.....Which is to say not copy that homosexual pedophile Michael Jackson.

Not to offend anyone but sometimes you can just tell.Even the neatest neat straight guy.(usually x military or married)Is not that f***ing neat.that's usually the first sighn for me anyway.Think about it he was the neatest most clean shaven guy in the group(yes group not band)even Justin was not nearly as bad.

Thrash Banger Don't feel bad.I still love NEW EDITION & TROOP not to mention old JACKSONS/JACKSON 5 records(1st real boy band's)Then on the other hand I also like The Temptations,The O'jay's Marvin Gaye & Isaac Hays to name a few.If your like me your music collection has to have BIG VARIETY other wise you get bored.Anybody given you grief for that ....... f***EM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Blackdog I'm the same way, I have to have a lot of variety in my music. Sometimes you just gotta listen to something a little different when you're in the mood to. There's no shame in liking other kinds of music, it's just personal choice.
