Former star of â€™N Sync, Lance Bass, has finally come out of the closet about his love for other men. Lance told People magazine:
I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys’ careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything. I didnâ€™t know: Could that be the end of â€™N Sync? So I had that weight on me of like, â€˜Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it’s bad.’ So I just never did.
The thing is, Iâ€™m not ashamed â€“ thatâ€™s the one thing I want to say. I don’t think it’s wrong, I’m not devastated going through this. I’m more liberated and happy than Iâ€™ve been my whole life. I’m just happy. The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that (the rumors) really were starting to affect my daily life. Now it feels like it’s on my terms. I’m at peace with my family, my friends, myself and God so there’s really nothing else that I worry about.
