Lance Bass Addressed Those ’N Sync Reunion Rumors

On his SiriusXM show, "Dirty Pop With Lance Bass," the former 'N Sync member with the lowest octave (that's Bass, duh) addressed yesterday's reunion rumors with a vague statement that seems to imply that they aren't true:

This morning I woke up to a lot of rumors flying that the 'N Sync reunion is happening after eleven years at the VMAs this Sunday. Well, let me tell you how this all came about. Justin Timberlake is getting the Michael Jackson [Video] Vanguard Award this Sunday at the awards, so of course people are automatically going to think we’re going to be there performing, but this is exactly how it happened and I knew these rumors were going to fly. We all came down here [to Miami] except for J.C.—J.C. stayed in California, he had to work…Joey, Chris and myself went to go see Justin’s last show with Jay Z at the [Sun Life] Stadium last Friday, and I even took a picture of it, it’s on my Instagram…I think that’s what started the rumor that there’s going to be this big reunion with 'N Sync. It’s amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media…It’s so nice to see because when we ended things ten years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter, but it’s so cute to see how many people are supporting and 'N Sync was even trending.”

Does he ever directly say the VMAs reunion isn't happening? Not exactly. Does he imply that the New York Post's "Page Six" source saw the boys together (minus J.C.!) and took a wild guess? Yes. Let's not forget when Michelle Williams directly told the press that the Destiny's Child Super Bowl reunion was "not true," and the girls went on to give an elaborate performance alongside Beyoncé (with an accompanying single!). Maybe call us optimistic, but we still have faith. Perhaps all the fuss about a fake reunion brought a real one into action. Lance seems to want it. Hear the full quasi-statement for yourself below.
