UPDATE: Turns out Lance Bass was just tearin’ up our hearts. After the former *NSYNC member teased a band reunion and a vinyl re-release, the group’s official Twitter account has walked back the announcement on Twitter. “We always appreciate the love and excitement from our fans. Unfortunately Lance’s comments to the press were taken out of context,” the band tweeted. “When there is real news from *NSYNC you will hear it from all of us.”
Lance Bass also tweeted a clarification, writing, “If people want to call the Walk Of Fame Star a ‘reunion’ then fine, but we have no plans on making any new music or tour.”
EARLIER: “I Want You Back” is what fans have been singing to *NSYNC for years, and now, the group is reuniting — kind of.
During an interview with ET at his home, Lance Bass shared some new details regarding the popular boy band.
“We’re doing something. I don’t know if I can announce it yet,” he teased. “We are coming out with a really cool vinyl edition of our Christmas album.”
Unfortunately, fans can say “Bye Bye Bye” to the thought of new music, because the Home for Christmas re-release will only feature old songs.
Bass then revealed that the entire group — Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Joey Fatone — will reunite at some point this year to get their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “We will all be there,” he added. “We just have to decide on a date.”
Even though *NSYNC have been on hiatus for 15 years, Bass says they still keep in contact every day via a group text chain.
“All we do is bag on each other all day long,” he admitted, noting that Timberlake’s past hairstyles aren’t the biggest target. “Joey gets a lot of the brunt of our jokes,” Bass confessed. “I mean, those guys are my brothers and so we act like immature brothers all the time.”
