He's the latest to deny it...
In an interview with The Associated Press between breaks of his Sirius XM show Dirty Pop with Lance Bass (via Billboard), Lance Bass said that *NSYNC have no plans for anything more than the brief reunion performance on the MTV Video Music Awards. That was the first time they performed together in eleven years. Part of the reason is because Timberlake has a solo tour in the fall.
He said: "It would be lovely to do it, but we got nothing planned. 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 one performance. If we did anything like that, I think we would come up with something real special where we could actually call it "The Reunion.'"
Bass, along with Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez joined Timberlake, who was already performing, at the MTV Video Music Awards. They wanted to do something special for him, as he was getting The Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, the VMA equivalent of a lifetime achievement award.
Bass opened up about how he felt during the end of the performance and arriving on stage to start.
While the last 15 seconds of their reunion performance made Bass feel nauseous, getting to the stage beforehand was a pure adrenaline rush.
He added: "We had to perform in the middle of the arena so there was no way of getting us out there without being seen. So they dressed us in big ole hoodies to pretend we were the stagehands. 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 said just before they finished, he was nauseous from nerves.
He also gave his thoughts on Miley Cyrus' behavior at the event. He mentioned that his young nieces and nephews watched the show for the first time to see him perform with *NSYNC.
He said: I didn't know I had to warn them that their little Hannah Montana was going to be naked and humping a finger. I think it's her thing. 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. I mean it is a big deal. Unfortunately I think young artists, especially coming from a Disney background, especially want to change that image. ... Lady Gaga does it. 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."
