EXCLUSIVE: *NSYNC Will Reunite This Year — Plus, They’re Re-Releasing Music on Vinyl
Send your thanks to the boy band gods — *NSYNC is reuniting this year!
ET’s Katie Krause caught up with Lance Bass at his home in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where he opened up about the band’s big 20-year anniversary, and revealed a special music release for fans.
“We’re doing something [special].I don’t know if I can announce it yet,” Bass teased, before spilling on *NSYNC’s big projects.
“We’re coming out with a really cool vinyl edition of our Christmas album because it’s coming up on the 20 years of that [1998 Home for Christmas] album,” he shared. “And then we’re going to be getting our star on the [Hollywood] Walk of Fame this year at some point.”
“We’ll all be there!” confirmed Bass, who is currently competing on Fox’s My Kitchen Rules. “We just have to decide on a date. We’re terrible at planning things.”
“We’re five guys, so for us to make a decision about anything is really hard, so we just need to do it. So hopefully maybe around Christmas time,” he said. “It’ll be fun to see everybody again.”
Though *NSYNC reunions have been few and far between since the group announced their “hiatus” in 2002, Bass says he and the guys — Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone and JC Chasez — couldn’t be closer.
“We talk daily,” he revealed, “all five of us.”
“I would have to shoot you if you saw the stuff we wrote to each other,” he joked. “We bag on each other all day long. We find pictures on Instagram of us from the ’90s and so we’re always giving it to each other.”
Surprisingly, it’s not Timberlake’s hair that gets the most teasing.
“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.”
As for the one thing they haven’t talked about? That would be Lifetime’s upcoming Britney Spears biopic, Britney Ever After, which touches on her relationship with Timberlake.
“I need to bring that up. I’ll tell you what they say,” Bass promised.
My Kitchen Rules airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
