Yeah, yeah, I'm feigning my shock about dear Lance Bass for any of you who didn't get the sarcasm (yes, even with a headline like this, there are still some out there). Unless you've been living underground (ok, not even underground, lets say, underwater) you've heard the rumors for years about the 'N Sync boybander being gay. Well, the 'ol chap has decided to officially come out in this week's PEOPLE magazine and confirm, "F*&k yeah! I'm Gay!" Okay, first off...forget about him being gay, I am more concerned about PEOPLE's horrible cover photo! Lance is fairly decent looking dude, you're telling me they couldn't do better than that??
Anyway, Lance said his decision to come out now was because the "gay rumors" were really getting in the way of his day to day life and he wanted to officially out himself before some other motherchucker did. He told PEOPLE, "The thing is, I’m not ashamed – that’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 I’ve been my whole life. I'm just happy." Lance said he was afraid to come out during his hey-day as a member of 'NSync because he didn't know how the fans (mostly tweens) would react and didn't want it to affect the success of the group. Lance is now happy and in love and in a relationship with that hunky dude Reichen Lehmkuhl from the reality show The Amazing Race. Like I said, none of this is a surprise, but good for him for finally speaking out. Better late than never. He's got a lot more balls then some other men in Hollywood. Okay, I swear I did not mean that last sentence to come out the way it did.
