Celebrity is the third studio album by *N Sync, released on July 24, 2001. The album achieved five times platinum status in the U.S. and became the group’s third album to sell over 10 million copies worldwide. In the United States, Celebrity debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. The album sold 1,879,955 copies in its first week, making it the second best first week sales in SoundScan history, only behind their own previous album, No Strings Attached. On August 22, 2001, the album was certified 5x Platinum by the RIAA, denoting five million shipments in the United States.
*NSYNC achieved a massive amount of success and respect in a very short amount of time. Each of the members was branching out into individual pursuits, including Lance who was breaking into acting and producing. While recording Celebrity, Lance and Joey filmed a movie, On the Line (We’ll chat about that tomorrow!). The process was well-documented in Lance’s book Out of Sync.With all that he’d already achieved, who would have imagined that so much more lay in store for him.
