The former NSYNC member says that the schedule of Justin Timberlake's upcoming solo tour is one of the reasons that prevents the band from reuniting again.
There will be no other NSYNC performances, at least for now. In an interview with The Associated Press on Monday, August 26, former member Lance Bass has revealed that NSYNC's less-than-two-minutes performance at MTV Video Music Awards would mark the first time in 11 years, and also the last time, the five members taking the stage together.
"It would be lovely to do it, but we've got nothing planned," Bass said of reuniting with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. One reason that prevents the boyband from getting together again is Timberlake's packed schedule, as his solo tour is set to kick off this fall.
"Who knows what will happen when he's off tour. It's simply not part of the conversation right now. We just focused on that [VMA] performance," Bass said. "If we did anything like that, I think we would come up with something real special where we could actually call it 'The Reunion.' "
Performing with all NSYNC members after 11 years wasn't easy for Bass. He admitted to getting nervous and feeling nauseous onstage. "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. That was my favorite part," he continued.
Bass has also spoken out about racy performances at the annual awards giving-event. During his "Dirty Pop With Lance Bass" on SiriusXM, he said that Miley Cyrus' R-rated performance made him uncomfortable, since his young nieces and nephews watched the whole show.
"I didn't know I had to warn them that their little 'Hannah Montana' was going to be naked and humping a finger," Bass explained. "I think she shocked a lot of her younger fans, especially the parents, who might not be so happy with her thing and she's just being Miley."
"Everyone is like what can I do just to really shock people. But Lady GaGa and a lot of people have really missed the mark a lot where it goes over people's heads," he added.
