13 – So, what do adult film star Ron Hyatt and Orlando boy band ‘NSYNC have in common? Well, as some confused fans in Edmonton, Alberta found out last week, the two apparently have a penchant for using the alias of “Ron Jeremy.” Hyatt, who is known around the world as porn star Ron Jeremy (Jeremy is Hyatt’s middle name), was in Edmonton last week to perform at a comedy show at the Thunder Dome. According to his publicists, Jeremy received scores of calls from girls inquiring about the whereabouts of ‘NSYNC, who were scheduled to play a show on Friday night at the city’s Skyreach Centre. After a short investigation, it was discovered that one of the members of ‘NSYNC uses the name “Ron Jeremy” as an alias when checking into hotels on the road. The band’s road crew was in Edmonton for a few days prior to the December 10 concert, and when fans saw the ‘NSYNC tour buses pulled up outside the same Westin hotel where Jeremy also happened to be staying, the calls began pouring in. It wasn’t immediately known which of the clean-cut lads in ‘NSYNC had been copping the porn star’s name as a pseudonym, and representatives for the band had yet to comment o n the matter.
