Joey Fatone‘s dad is so bad at keeping surprises. I think all dads of celebs are bad at keeping secrets. Like when Miley’s dad let it slip that she’s probably not going to get married. Classic dad move.
MTV is being coy about reuniting *NSYNC at the VMAs this Sunday. Nothing is confirmed. So who knows even if Daddy Fatone is legit or if he’s just really excited about the idea. From The Daily News:
Though Lance Bass refused to confirm whether the beloved boy band would get back together at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, another former *NSYNC-er’s father spilled the beans on the reunion.
Joseph Fatone Sr., the father of Joey Fatone, told Radar Online that the group is indeed reuniting. And that’s not all.
“They’re doing a performance,” he said. “I think it’s exciting,” Fatone Sr. added. “I couldn’t even say why he’s doing it through. Why, at this point in his life. Now he’s his own man.”
That last bit was weird. Was he throwing shade on the rest of the band?
Would you be psyched to see *NSYNC perform? Clearly I would be. Need a refresher of some *NSYNC goodness?
I don’t know if this is the most ingenious casting job I’ve ever seen or just the craziest, but pornstar and current Charlie Sheen goddess Bree Olson is set to star in her first non-pornographic film, Mancation. The other two people cast whose names you may recognize? Danica Mckellar AKA Winnie Cooper and Joey Fatone AKA the grossest member of *NSYNC beside Chris and maybe Lance, depending on the day.
One thing’s for sure either way: Whoever’s behind this movie got me to type the word Mancation after reading this news, so they’re “winning,” so to speak.
So Joey Fatone just saw the Britney episode of Glee and now he’s running around telling any media outlet that will listen that he’s ready to see the kids try their hand at his old boy band’s music.
Joey told People:
“I saw the Britney Spears one and I thought it was kind of cool. I said, ‘You know what? They should do an ‘NSYNC one.’ So I mentioned it on Twitter, and everyone is retweeting it and saying, ‘That would be great!’ I love acting and I like to sing. It’d be perfect! Seriously, it’s a great show. I’m a fan.”
First of all, Joey… “Everyone” isn’t Tweeting that at you. The people who follow you and @ reply you may be saying that, but certainly there was no #JoeyFatone4Glee trending topics on Tuesday night. Secondly, the Britney episode may have sparked some early ’00s memories for those Tweeters, but no. *NSYNC does not need their own episode of Glee because pretty much everyone they dedicate an episode to on the show is legendary and while *NSYNC may have been pretty big back the day, the music hardly falls under the category “new classics.”
And finally… Yes, Joey. We know you love to dance and sing. You’ve been haunting us with your ability to do so for over a decade.
