Members of the iconic boy-band ‘NSync have a lot to celebrate. It has been 20 years since the U.S. release of their self-titled debut album. Yes! Twenty years! But they still manage to keep in touch — in fact, they talk “every day,” according to group member Lance Bass.
Bass told Us Weekly the members are currently bonding over the release of a clothing line that requires them to constantly be approving photos.
“We all think we’re Marc Jacobs but we’re not,” Bass said.
Clothing line, you ask?
The band has technically been together since 1995, then just 15 to 24-years-old. But the release of the group’s first album just hit the 20 year mark. Now, they are getting a long-overdue star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 30.
The boys even shared a sneak peek of the star on the band’s Twitter page:
Wow! Thanks Vince!! https://t.co/i971N6YVFQ

The celebration also includes an ‘NSync “Dirty Pop-Up Shop” to showcase the band’s 20-year history with the launch of the group’s official merchandise capsule collection. Fans can also get their hands on limited inventory of ‘NSync gear and check out props, wardrobe and photos on display in Los Angeles.

Will Lance, Joey, JC, Chris or Justin be there, you ask? Bass has dropped some hints that he and the other members might make some surprise visits. Like this tweet directed at fans traveling to California from out of town, “I have some surprises in store for when you get to town.”
Hmm … interesting.
Admission to the pop-up store is free, but you only have a few days to check it out at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard. The hours of operation are:
- Saturday, April 28 – Noon to 8 p.m.
- Sunday, April 29 – Noon to 8 p.m.
- Monday, April 30 – 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 1 – Noon to 8 p.m.
Then we must say, “Bye, bye, bye.”
Unfortunately, new music will not be a part of the celebration. Bass shut down our hopes and dreams for a musical reunion. You’re tearin’ up our hearts, Lance!
He did encourage fans to support his pal Justin Timberlake, whose “Man of the Woods” Tour will be in Los Angeles at the very same time as the Hollywood star unveiling! Bass says all the boys will be cheering on Timberlake at his performance at The Forum in Los Angeles on April 28 (insert high-pitch squeal from your teenage self).
They really do love each other.
