Lance Bass, member of the popular boy band NSYNC, has spoken out about the current state of his friend and bandmate Justin Timberlake. Amidst the controversy surrounding Britney Spears' explosive memoir, Lance reassures fans that Justin and his fellow NSYNC members are "all good" and will "survive" this tumultuous time.
In the wake of the negative publicity stemming from Britney's memoir, Justin took a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with his wife Jessica Biel and their children. Lance shared this update with People, emphasizing that Justin and the rest of NSYNC are in a positive place.
During the conversation, Lance also revealed his excitement about reuniting with the band to record a new single after years apart. Their surprise release, "Better Place," marked NSYNC's first new song in over 20 years and achieved considerable success on the Hot 100 singles chart.
Despite being somewhat coy about Justin's well-being specifically, Lance expressed that he regularly keeps in touch with his bandmates, adding that "people will survive" in reference to their ability to weather challenging times.
The new single, created for the upcoming Trolls animated film, features Justin as one of the lead voice actors alongside Anna Kendrick. Lance shared that discussions about reuniting for a song began in the spring of 2023.
Reflecting on the recording process and the passage of time, Lance mentioned that being back in the studio together felt familiar and comfortable. While plans for a larger public appearance were canceled due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, Lance remains optimistic about the potential for future endeavors with NSYNC.
Although Justin has maintained a low profile amidst criticism from Britney's memoir, Lance's positive update provides fans with hope for more exciting projects and potential reunions in the future.
