02 – From Lance’s MySpace: Hot off the presses!
Howdy!! I just got the cover from my publisher of my book! It is under my pics because I dont know how to post it here.
And since we are on the subject I just want to say I do not want my book to flop! One funny night I decided to “jokingly” say “oh it will probably flop” to a TMZ “reporter”. (like all my quotes?) Again it was a joke. Im not an idiot– I wrote this book so that it might help those out there interested in the music industry, space, and/or coming out story.
On a side note– rehearsal is going great for Hairspray and I am having the best time ever!! I hope you all get to see it, because it really is an amazing show and the cast is incredible! Hairspray on Broadway – Official Site – Broadway’s Big Fat Musical Comedy Hit

Im hearing yet again goodole perez has posted something, imagine this, not true.

Pretty sure the smart ones know this by now, but, that never happened. I couldnt be mean to anyone and go waaaaaay out of my way to make everyone happy. So this guy obviously wanted attention , and i guess he got it. Congrats!
Love when “journalists” get their facts first! lol
Added a little later: P.S. As for my stage door at the end of Hairspray everynight– I sign EVERY autograph that is put in front of me, and never once was wisked away to my “limo” right after a show. Um, never taken a limo in NYC. Again , just another made up lie.

27 – From Lance’s MySpace: Rumor control on New York magazine artice
Seriously! Here we go again! Cant believe I actually have to write this… this is just not a good week for me press wise… what did i do?!
So here goes… for those that read the New York mag article… I said none of those negative quotes! I expect bloggers to print fake things and its all in fun.. but when a real journalist misquotes me and prints fake quotes that I “said”.. that is just crazy!! And, I dont think legally they can do that! Can they? This dumb reporter just put words in my mouth and turned everything I said into a negative. I told her I love NY and I will probably be doing the bi-coastal thing now because I love it so much. I told her the first few apts I looked at were pieces of crap and the owners had no style at all… that turned into “Lance thinks New Yorkers have no style!” Then I told her I eat at Justins new place all the time, but it is really far away in the upper east side and always full of a college crowd. She turned that into ” Lance doesnt go to Justins restaurant cause its too far away and he doesnt like it because he is not in college anymore!” Um.. I didnt go to college, why the hell would I say that!
This girl should be working for the enquirer instead of a legit magazine!
If there ever was a need for a retraction this would be it– and hope NY Magazine will do the right thing and write one.
I am no longer going to defend myself on articles such as these. But, I felt I had to because I just moved to this amazing city and feel so at home.I do NOT want anyone here to think I hate it.
If you would like to write a nice little letter to the writer of the article her name is Jada Yuan and she works for New York magazine.
On a lighter note– went to the US Open today and watched Federer kick some ass and Spain’s Fernando Verdasco had the most amazing nail biting comeback I have ever seen!!!! He won in the 5th set.
27 – Sureshot scheduled to do a concert/premiere party in Boston at the Saint nightclub, Boston. Appearance only, no performance, as Bryan was home with his family and/or in rehab.
28 – Lance’s letter to New York Magazine: Last week your reporter called me on my cell phone to ask me a number of questions in conjunction with my joining the cast of the Broadway hit musical Hairspray. She came to see me in the show but she didn’t come to the after party so she requested an interview later.
I made the comment to her (that she recorded so there is no excuse for the misquote) that when trying to find an apartment here, the first two I looked at had no style. She reported that I said New Yorkers had no style, which I never said. What was conveniently left out was my statement that I am having a great time here, I love the city and I now plan to get a permanent residence here and be bi-coastal.
Later in the story the writer suggests that I don’t hang out at Justin’s restaurant. I have been to Justin’s restaurant a number of times, and have taken my fellow cast members to it on many occasions as well.
I’m sorry floral print couches were reported on in my piece and nothing mentioned of this incredible musical, Hairspray, that I am in and how excited I am to be working and living among some of the greatest people on the planet.
Proud New Yorker
28 – From New York Magazine: Lance Bass Learns About Damage Control
In this week’s issue of the magazine, former ‘N Sync star Lance Bass talks to New York’s Jada Yuan about battling the city’s real-estate market (he’s in town to appear in Hairspray on Broadway): “There’s a lot of crap here for a lot of money,” he said. “I don’t think anyone here has any style. I was looking at fully furnished places and it was like, you can either have a bunch of floral prints or some dusty couch from the 1960s.”
He also told us about dining at Justin Timberlake’s restaurant: “I’ve been up there a few times … But it’s really up there. The Upper East Side? I’m not in college anymore.”
But now Bass feels compelled to impugn our reporting, both on his MySpace page and in a statement to Vulture. See the statement, and our refutation, below.
We were going to be nice about this, because we’re actually quite fond of Bass, but then we heard that he called Ms. Yuan a dumb reporter on MySpace. So we invite Bass to breath deeply, stop reading Perez Hilton (who posted the story on his own site under the typically over-the-top headline, “Lance Bass Hates New York City“), and take some lessons in reading comprehension. Bass’s beef boils down to two points — he says he didn’t say New Yorkers have no style, and he does go to Justin Timberlake’s restaurant. Oh, and he really loves New York!
New York would like to make the following points: (1) We stand by the interview; Bass was not misquoted. (2) Bass is not quoted as saying New Yorkers have no style — it’s clear that he’s referring to the apartments he looked at. (3) The piece also does not suggest that Bass doesn’t hang out at Justin Timberlake’s restaurant. In fact, it specifically quotes him as saying he goes there. (4) Though Bass’s quote about his dancing ability (”I was the worst dancer in the band”) has not been called into question, we’d like to reiterate that Bass was, indeed, the worst dancer in ‘N Sync. (5) Bass now says he’s going bi-coastal; he never mentioned that to us, but we’re glad to hear it! Welcome to New York, Lance.
