N Sync Reunion Will Never Happen
A little part of me died yesterday (the part that had those terrible split-front bangs and wore skull rings) when J.C. Chasez symbolically tore down the N Sync poster I had on my childhood bedroom wall by telling a paparazzo that there was no chance of N Sync ever reuniting.
"We're all done with that," he said. "Completely done."
Now, look. I'm no fool -- Justin Timberlake has always been the lone hold-out for any sort of reunion. Everyone knows J.C., Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick (seriously, where did he go?!?) would punch their moms in the face and literally crawl over flaming spikes to get the band back together.
But JT is all Hollywood now. With a movie career he thinks will go somewhere (it won’t) and a more mature musical sound, there is not enough money in the world to get him back in boy band formation. But that doesn't mean a small part of me wasn't holding out hope that the five-some would once again perform that iconic "Bye Bye Bye" hand wave thingy on the MTV VMA stage.
Although that's the same part of me that still hopes Justin and Britney can work out their issues and get back together. I mean, seriously -- can't we move past this "Britney banged Wade Robson" thing yet?
So, allow me to offer a musical eulogy to the band that defined 90s pop (sorry BSB). Oh, and you know when I said I had N Sync posters on my bedroom walls? I meant my sister's wall. Yea. Hers.
