    Pop Star Reveals He's Gay

    Lance Bass: I'm Gay

    Wednesday Jul 26, 2006 8:30am EST

    Lance Bass, the former 'N Sync heartthrob, reveals that he is gay, in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE.

    "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," he says speaking about his sexual orientation for the first time with PEOPLE.

    Now, after years of keeping his personal life private, the Mississippi-bred, Southern Baptist-reared Bass, 27, is publicly revealing what he first shared with his friends, then his shocked family.

    "He took years to really think about how he was going to tell everyone," says his close buddy Fatone, 29, who was the first 'N Sync bandmate to find out Bass is gay. "I back him up 100 percent." Adds Basss longtime pal, actress Christina Applegate: "I've always accepted him as who he is. It's about his own serenity at this point."

    Having pursued acting, producing and most memorably space flight after N Sync went on hiatus in 2002, Bass now is looking ahead to new beginnings. He is in a "very stable" relationship with model-actor-Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, 32, and is developing an Odd Couple-inspired sitcom pilot with Fatone in which his character will be gay.

    Mostly, though, hes just enjoying the relief that comes with the culmination of a long, at times emotionally fraught journey.

    "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."

    As for why he's talking about this now Bass says, "The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that (the rumors) really were starting to affect my daily life. Now it feels like it's on my terms. I'm at peace with my family, my friends, myself and God so there's really nothing else that I worry about."

    For the full Q&A with Lance Bass, pick up PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
    I think I like him more now... *mostly cus I have an undieing love for the gay man.*

    It's not really a surprising, to be honest.
    I mean, sure it struck me as a 'Huh?' for a moment
    then I realise the whole Lance x Reichen fiasco

    Hey... wonder if he'll become one of Kathy's "Main Gays" now. He has been on her show a couple times now, right? I say, hey, more power to him for coming out. It had to be hard for him, being in the spotlight... and in a boyband spotlight to.

    And ya know what the say, #1RealityZTVFan, they hot ones are always gay lol

    I'm not shocked. There was a story recently about him being seen with someone (a female star, forget her name) in Central Park and they giggled the report away that they were somehow romantically linked because it would be impossible since he is gay. This rumor has been floated around for a while though.

    Good for him for finally clearing the air. No more rumors.
