N’Sync to Make Comeback????

Posted by mattymoe on September 10, 2008

With the surprising success the New Kids on the Block have had with their reunion, we joked earlier this month that N’Sync might try for a comeback too.

And it looks like that might be happening!

Former boy band member Lance Bass gave some hints during a recent interview.

He didn’t confirm the news 100%, but he did say that “the odds were good” for an N’Sync reunion.

It’s not like Justin Timberlake needs to do it, but you know those other hasbeens are dying for a comeback!

Bass said, “We’re definitely itching to do some music. We’ve always discussed it. It’s always a possibility and we still owe some records to the record companies. I’m serious!”

As for the real star of the group, Bass says, the groups is “pretty serious, [but] it’s gonna be hard to get Justin to calm down and get off tour. He has not stopped since our last tour. He’s a workaholic.”

And just how quickly could we expect a reunion tour?

Princess Frostylocks says it could be as quick as next year.

He adds, “It could be possibly a year, it could be five years from now. Depends on everyone’s schedules kind of aligning together.”

And this time they’re gonna do things differently, he promises.

Says P.F., “We’ll do it on our own time. We’re going to make it very organic and it won’t be rushed, that’s for sure!”

And with nothing else to say about the possible reunion, the media-loving Bass went on to talk about how he supported Christina Applegate during her recent treatment for breast cancer.

The two have apparently been friends since first meeting in 2002 at the premier of Applegate’s The Sweetest Thing.

He says, “It was nice to be there for her. She went through it like a champ, and came out of it very positive and totally successful. I think it’s amazing that she’s going to go out there and try to help other women. She’s definitely been through all the good and bad times with me, and I definitely [have] been there for her,” he added. “It’s nice to have a friend like that.”

Enough about that.

So, the real question is, are U still interested in N’Sync?

Nick Jonas Falls Ill During Gig

Posted by mattymoe on August 7, 2008

Teen pop sensations The Jonas Brothers had to stall a live performance on Saturday (02Au08), when diabetic Nick Jonas fell ill onstage.
Since being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2005, Nick has had to monitor his blood sugar levels at regular intervals, and stop for treatment if they fall too low – even if it’s in the middle of a concert.
Nick and his bandmate brothers Joe and Kevin are even wired up with microphones so they can chat with each other during gigs – allowing the 15-year-old to tip them off when his insulin levels drop and he starts feeling weak.
And his brothers have a special technique to distract fans while Nick dashes off for an insulin shot.
Joe had to call on Plan B at a Saratoga Springs concert at the weekend, when his brother needed medical assistance.
He explains, “I chatted with the audience and kept reading all the signs people were holding up.”
Nick adds, “I was only bad for, like, a minute, but Joe kept talking and talking for, like, five minutes.”
The onstage scare was another reminder of just how difficult life can be for the young Jonas sibling.
Dad Kevin Sr. recently spoke of Nick’s daily battle with diabetes, telling Rolling Stone magazine, “I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to hear people belittle diabetes because it’s maintainable.
“They’ve never had to sit on a bus when a pump didn’t work and a second pump didn’t work… and a third didn’t, and he had to give himself a shot when we’re driving down a highway.
“Everybody on our team is on full alert, watching every move Nick makes on that stage every single night of his life.”

Boy Bander’s People Can’t Get Story Straight

Posted by mattymoe on August 7, 2008

Rich Cronin of LFO bailed on a headlining gig this weekend claiming he was sick — but it may be a load of crap!

My source was told Cronin threw a fit after it was reported how much scratch he was making for the show — and that may be why he canceled. An official statement from Cronin — who’s a cancer survivor — claims “Rich’s health issues prevent him from being able to participate … there is no situation which could be presented which would even remotely mitigate the physical risk posed by his participation.”

But then my source was told something completely different …

Rich’s people were contacted by the peeps @ TMZ to check his schedule for the month, they were told he was “booked all of August shooting videos” and wouldn’t be available until September. Shortly after, Cronin’s people called back to say he wouldn’t be available till October, “due to medical issues.” All three statements were issued by the same person.

Instead of canceling the fest after Cronin’s bow out — Jeff Timmons of 98° and the organizers decided to make it a free concert to save the show.

I’m just surprised he is still getting work! You better take what you can get Rich!
