A day after receiving their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the guys of *NSYNC – Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick – reunited once again for a surprise appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Justin came out first and addressed the viral meme “It’s gonna be May,” saying he doesn’t know how it started but he loves it. He also chatted about the honor of receiving the star, as well as about his three-year-old son, Silas, and wife Jessica Biel, before bringing out the rest of his bandmates.
The most revealing part of the interview was when Ellen made them all play a game of “Never Have I Ever.” We learned that they’ve all hooked up with someone on a tour bus and that Justin may have hooked up with a Spice Girl.
The guys also admitted forgetting their own lyrics on stage, but none of them have ever hooked up with someone while listening to *NSYNC songs. As for whether they’ve ever hooked up with a fan, the guys were conflicted of how to answer because they consider their significant others to be fans.
*NSYNC also talked with Ellen about their embarrassing past fashion choices and the last time they reunited on stage, at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
FYI: *NSYNC got their star on the last day of April and the fact that it was nearly May was not lost on the iconic boy band. The lyric of their 2000 hit, “It’s Gonna Be Me” is commonly misheard as “It’s Gonna Be May.”
“Lance actually brought that to our attention, which I thought was really funny,” Fatone says. “He was like, ‘You know it’s going to be – and it was like, here we go. What we should do is capitalize on this and make shirts that say ‘It’s gonna be May,’” he cracked. “Why not?”
