During the span of their career as *NSYNC, each of the members had endless opportunity to meet and become influenced by their peers. One such opportunity arose during a Teen People Photo Shoot.
“I remember the first time I got to know Aaliyah. Justin and I did a photo shoot with her for Teen People. She was so stunningly beautiful that I was nervous to even talk to her. But, she was so down to earth and so full of humor I felt immediately like I had known her for years. She was one of the few that made me feel good about this business. She stood up for what she believed in and did not let anything get to her and make her jaded. She will be truly missed and will always have a place in my heart.”
–Lance Bass, *NSYNC
On August 25th, 2001, Aaliyah was taken from us in a plane crash, leaving behind a legacy and many who loved her. Instead of the sadness that would haunt a day like today, we choose, instead, to remember the good times. Below, check out a clip of an interview that Aaliyah gave with Lance and Justin, as well as photos from the accompanying photoshoot.
