Lance Bass has spoken out about the rumor that suggests NSYNC will reunite at MTV Video Music Awards. During his SiriusXM show, "Dirty Pop With Lance Bass", the 34-year-old singer said that he knew such rumor would surface after former NSYNC member Justin Timberlake was announced as the recipient of this year's Michael Jackson Vanguard Award.
"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," Bass said without confirming or denying the rumor. "But this is exactly how it happened and I knew these rumors were going to fly."
Bass then blamed the reunion rumor on an Instagram picture that sees him posing with other former NSYNC members Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick at Timberlake's concert at the Sun Life Stadium last week. "I think that's what started the rumor that there's going to be this big reunion with NSYNC," Bass continued.
"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] 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 NSYNC was even trending," he added.
Page Six previously reported that Timberlake, who has been announced as a performer VMAs, will perform with Bass, Fatone, Kirkpatrick and J.C. Chasez for the first time in more than a decade. The news hasn't been confirmed or denied by MTV, but a source told Us Weekly that the show's producers were trying "to make it happen."
