*NSYNC Timeline – September 2000
TIPY filmed in 2 days in SF area: redwood grove and Sinbad’s Pier II restaurant near the Embarcadero *NSYNC reportedly used a phony name to discourage a swarm of fans interrupting their video shoot in San Francisco. The name? The Melons. Supposedly each member had a melon styled name. Unfortunately, their anonymity didn’t last long as a radio DJ spread the word of their location forcing the band to end their portion video shoot early.
Reported that JC has to go to LA to reshoot some scenes for TIPY video
During days off: JC recording with Wild Orchid and promo in Canada; Lance attended US Open, threw “special party” for “best friend”
Nsync, SFX Entertainment, and MCY.com are all faced with a class-action lawsuit from a Chicago-area family. Due to a 7 mile traffic jam on southbound I-53, a mother and her daughter were unable to attend the Nsync concert in Joliet on August 1. This lawsuit claims that Nsync and it’s promoters “over-sold the concert” and ultimately put their fans in danger. Many anxious girls got out of their cars and walked miles in the dark along muddy roads to get to the venue. But many only got there in time to see the last song. There is no word yet from Nsync, promoters or the Route 66 Raceway.
02 – Puffy Combs will be throwing a party at John’s Lane Farm in East Hampton, New York and *NSYNC will be on hand. The public is invited, but it’s for parents and kids.

04-05 – Chris appears on Hollywood Squares for Teen People week
06 – Other artists, such as ‘NSYNC, are a bit more cutthroat when it comes to VMA night. Apparently, despite having zillions of fans and record-breaking sales, nothing can quite fill the empty space in the group’s trophy cabinet the way a VMA could. “We haven’t got a Moonman yet,” the group’s Justin Timberlake said longingly. “There is a chance,” fellow ‘NSYNCer Joey Fatone noted, no doubt recognizing the group’s six nominations, which put the popsters at the head of this year’s VMA pack alongside Eminem. Considering the group’s dominating year both on the charts and on MTV, leave it to ‘NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick to overstate the obvious: “This year, if we lose, it’s really gonna suck.”
07 – Perform TIPY/BBB/IGBM medley at the MTV Video Music Awards, win Best Pop Video, Viewer’s Choice, and Best Choreography. Kid Rock even managed to upstage his co-presenter, the famously chatty WWF star The Rock, during his time at the podium, quipping, “No offense to the Backstreet Boys, but the commercial that ‘NSYNC did for McDonald’s was way cooler than the one that the Backstreet Boys did for Burger King.”
07 – Pagesix.com reports Justin and Lance went to the US Open to meet Pete Sampras, their hero. They report Pete and the two talked about tennis and music.
07 – Nsync’s celebration party after the VMAs was held at TWIRL. The club was decorated with the Vaudeville theme. We strung 3000 real red roses at all different heights from the ceiling, the bars and VIP sections were decorated with candles hung in gold globes with flowers. Red roses were put in all around the club. The video screens were framed in red velvet curtains, like the album cover. Candles everywhere. Party guests included: Destiny’s Child, Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Mark Walberg, Blink 182, Britney, Busta, Jermaine Dupri, Usher, Alliyah, All the MTV VJs, Darren Henson, Pink, Wade Robson, Johnny Wright, Nelly, Puffy, Jennifer Lopez, and many many more.

During that off-time, ‘NSYNC will continue to mull over its upcoming non-performance-based film project, which Chris Kirkpatrick said will likely focus on the individual members of the band rather than the group as a whole. “I think [the film will] be something we probably do individually,” Kirkpatrick told MTV Radio. “Everybody will probably do their own thing to just get the feel for it, and then [we'll] see what happens. I don’t think we want to do an “NSYNCworld’-type movie right now… The type of movie we want to do is something that expands our abilities and expands our craft,” he added. “Anything we do right now, even if it’s a great movie, is gonna be judged along with a ‘Spiceworld’ [movie] or something else that was a little overrated.”
