Former N’Sync’er Lance Bass says that he has tried to help and get through to Britney Spears but the pop-mess isn’t having anything to do with him or any of her old friends.
Asked by GQ magazine in its November issue if he’s been in contact with the troubled pop star, Bass replies: “I tried. I tried. She’s my neighbor in Beverly Hills. She lives next door. I tried to get in touch with her – I wanted to be that friend to help her. I don’t think she’s having any of her old friends anymore.”
Bass goes on the article to say that he told Britney nearly three years ago he was gay in an effort to help get through to her. He also says that the members of N’Sync thought that Justin Timberlake and Chris Kirkpatrick were gay.
While Bass kept his own sexuality a secret, he and his bandmates harbored other suspicions – ultimately unfounded – about a different member of the group.
“We thought Justin [Timberlake] was gay,” Bass says, “because he told us he wanted to do a gay part in a movie.”
Many in the know still claim Timberfake is indeed gay.
