The Fix

Former ‘NSYNC member Lance Bass not-so-shocked the world when he came out in 2006 – and who knows? Another member could be next! Apparently fellow ‘NSYNCer Chris Kirkpatrick doesn’t mind that Bass thought he was gay when they were younger, People Magazine reports. “I think it’s awesome that Lance thought I was gay while we were in the band together,” Kirkpatrick told the magazine in Chicago at Underground for a party to raise money for the charity After School Matters. “He’s been going through a lot after coming out, and we respect that and give him his space.” Now my question is, why exactly does Kirkpatrick find Bass’ assessment of him “awesome?” If Kirkpatrick is gay, that’s an appropriate response
