04 – Perform at Rachel Colburn’s bat mitzvah: The new entertainment industry insider Web site Inside.com reports that Nsync performed at a bat mitzvah in Potomac, Maryland for twelve-year-old Rachel Colburn, who is now most assuredly the most envied woman in the state. Inside reports that Colburn’s father, an exec at America On line, hired the group to visit the Beth Sholom synagogue on Sunday to provide one hell of a bat mitzvah gift in the form of a personal concert complete with a performance with the young girl. But before you start bugging your parent about getting the group to play your 4th of July cook-out, keep this in mind: Inside speculates that Colburn’s family shelled out more than $1 million to land the boys for the day.

10 – Britney Spears and ‘NSYNC made a quick trip to Vancouver last weekend to shoot a McDonald’s commercial, much to the delight of about 200 unsuspecting schoolkids who had been chosen as extras. According to production manager Christian Allen, the casting call went out shrouded in secrecy, and most of the extras, aged six to 14, did not know they’d be seeing the performers until the curtain dropped to reveal Spears at the start of the shoot. The production had originally been scheduled for Los Angeles, but last-minute union issues saw it move to a suburban Vancouver location. A McDonald’s franchise in Surrey, British Columbia, was shut down from Thursday to Sunday as crews built a stage behind the restaurant in the shadow of its golden arches. During the mock performance, which was staged on Saturday, Spears lip-synced her current hit, “Oops!… I Did It Again,” while ‘NSYNC did the same to its previous single, “Bye, Bye, Bye.” A spokesperson for the production company Flying Tiger Films told MTV News that the performers were flown in to Vancouver via private planes on Friday following ‘NSYNC’s performance in Pasadena. Security at the shoot was extremely tight, and the few members of the media who managed to find the set were kept at arms’ length. Freelance photographer Jeff Vinnick told MTV News that he paid the resident of a house next door to the restaurant $300 to allow him to shoot from the balcony, which overlooked the high fences that had been erected around the set. He was soon spotted by the production crew, and according to Vinnick, the crew suspended the operation until a crew member could be dispatched to offer the home owner more money to ask the photographer to leave.

25 – ‘NSYNC Show Derailed By Weather: Only an act of God can come between ‘NSYNC and its fans. The heartthrobs were slated to play the Route 66 Speedway in Joliet, Illinois on Sunday, but extreme weather conditions ripped through the venue two days earlier leaving behind structural damage. The group was nowhere near Joliet when a mini-tornado (venue spokespeople referred to it as a “micro-burst”) ripped through the speedway, tearing a scaffolding away from the stage and prompting the show’s cancellation. The venue notes that no one was injured in the incident. The group is expected to reschedule the show for August 2, which would then make it the last date of the current leg of ‘NSYNC’s U.S. tour.
25 – Popcentric received accounts that Justin Timberlake was backstage before Britney’s performance in Scranton, PA Sunday. *NSYNC had two shows cancelled due to weather making this possible. This may quell rumors the two had broken up.

Justin’s very good at everything!” He adds that Justin is a perfectionist, down to earth, and into lifting weights.
