Lance Bass: Yep, I'm Gay!

Lance Bass is 'N Sync with his sexuality.After recently being spotted at a gay bar in Cape Cod's Provincetown, Lance tells People mag: Yep, I'm gay. "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," says Bass, referring to bandmates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake. "I didnt know: Could that be the end of N Sync? So I had that weight on me of like, Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did." Lance says he's in a "very stable" relationship with Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, with whom he was photographed in P-Town."The thing is, Im not ashamed " thats the one thing I want to say," he explains of his decision to come out. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than Ive been my whole life. I'm just happy." Now that this whole thing is out in the open, Lance is planning on his next project: an Odd Couple-type sitcom " with Joey Fatone " in which his character will be gay.
