The American Music Awards happened and I don’t think anyone really cared that much, but here’s your outfit recap, just in case. Yeah, it’s a day late. Honestly, who really cares? We covered Katy Perry’s “is this offensive” Geisha performance, which was probably the most interesting thing of the whole night. So here’s the outfits, a touch late, but we can still have fun oooo-ing and aaaah-ing and WTF-ing. Which is what I’ll need your help with. I want you to pick the best, worst, and most WTF outfit of the night. Here we go!
Lance Bass is engaged to be married to Michael Turchin, who looks like some hot combination of Adrien Brody and someone hotter than Adrien Brody. Us Weekly says they have the exclusive details, so here they are:
Dating since December 2011, the couple got engaged in New Orleans after Bass proposed to the aspiring actor and model with a black diamond band. He even texted his future husband’s parents to ask for their permission first.
“They’re such a great couple, everyone is so happy for them,” another source tells Us. “Their friends and family are thrilled.”
He texted permission? LOL. Oh, Lance. WTF did he text? “Hey u guise it’s me Lance, can I marry your son, Y/N? Plz say yes. :) ttyl!!” It’s such an outdated useless tradition to ask for someones’ hand in marriage from their parents, but I know that people still do it. So if you’re gonna do it, do it right. Come on, Lance. A text? Really?
Anyway, after his crappy *NSYNC reunion at the VMAs, he tweeted something that I thought was very sweet:
For the first time ever I got to perform w *NSYNC as an out entertainer and was thinking of this man.
That’s nice. And I mean that with 0% sarcasm.
Yo Timberlake, I really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to get back together with *NSYNC for the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards, but do you think you could have given them maybe more than one minute? Yes, the rumors of a reunion were true. It was so exciting to see *NSYNC back together — even Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga were rocking out in the audience — but if you blinked, you missed it.
Can’t find a good quality video yet, and hopefully by the time you watch this it’s still up.
I still screeched like a little girl, I just wished they could have at least done a whole song.
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?
The MTV Music Video Awards are being held in Brooklyn this year, because some executive somewhere is just now hearing that BK is like, super cool. And what else is super cool? Boy band reunions. Wait am I being sarcastic? I don’t think so. Because rumor is that someone out there is toying with the idea of doing everything they can to reunite *NSYNC for the VMA’s. And honestly…that would…be…AWESOME.
But only if they actually reunited for a song/performance. Getting them all on stage in front of a podium to give out an award for Most Improved Wardrobe or whatever the f-ck the VMA’s gives awards for DOES NOT COUNT. So if they’re gonna do that, save Timberlake the trouble (because he’s obviously the only one who is ever going to hold out, let’s be real).
From the Daily News:
Producers of the Barclays blowout set for Sunday night are “trying to make it happen,” an MTV source told US Weekly, adding that the much anticipated reunion is steadily “coming together.”
This year’s MTV bash will see top nominee Timberlake, 32, adorned with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which is probably why a reunion was thought up.
So there you go, that’s all we got to go on. I do not think it will happen, but lord knows that with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and even Miley performing, we’ll still have lots of great GIFs for years to come.
Ah, Lance Bass. Where’s he been, what’s he been doing? You know, besides outing members of One Direction and feeling the wrath of Amanda Bynes. Well, I’ll tell you: he’s getting ready to judge the Miss America 2013 pageant, because why not? I’ve never watched it (and don’t know anyone who does) but I have caught some pretty stellar YouTube “bloopers” of idiotic shit the contestants have said, and that’s enough for me.
But let’s stay on topic. Lance announced his gig on his Sirius XM radio show, hilariously titled ‘Dirty Pop with Lance Bass’ (let it go, man). Here’s Yahoo!OMG‘s scoop:
“Howard Stern calls himself ‘America’s judge.’ Well I’m ‘Miss America’s judge’!” Lance tells omg! exclusively. “Of course, my mom always told me not to judge but in this case, I’ll be doing it for America!”
Well, that’s… exciting. In case this is something that at all interests you, the 2013 Miss America pageant will air on September 15. Mark your calendars – I know you’re dying to.
Kim Kardashian is always tweeting about something inane. Sometimes she’ll try to tweet about a product without it being incredibly obvious that they’re asking her to. But it’s always obvious. Lohan has been doing her own product endorsement, although the company claims they are not paying her.
And yes, apparently some celebs get paid to tweet about companies and products — even the D-list celebs. The more followers/famous the celeb, the more money they can command per tweet. For example, Kim Kardashian can get (allegedly) around $20,000 per tweet. Frankie Muniz can only get $252. (Nelson Muntz laugh here.)
