Lance Bass got revelatory on Larry King Now, talking about about his relationship with *NSYNC, being a closeted pop star in a boy band and life in the South.
"It's tiring, Larry, very tiring," said Bass about keeping his sexuality a secret. "When you're younger, you wake up every day praying to God, 'Please change me, please change me,' then you accept this won't change. And then once you start feeling better about yourself and meeting other gay people, then you're like, 'Wow, I actually like myself this way.' So it's crazy the evolution that you go through as a kid to an adult in being gay."
He revealed that "there were definitely secret relationships. My first three boyfriends were all just a secret to me and then my little inner circle. My family didn't know."
Bass also spoke of homophobia in the South, saying, "We were always told respect your elders, respect your elders. I think that's why it's such a slow change in the South is because we respect our elders so much that you don't want to try to teach them a new lesson of acceptance."
As for Bass' current relationship with ex-bandmates? "We have this group text that all five of us are on that we've had for a few years now, and at least once a week, we're always texting funny things to each other," he explained.
Bass is engaged to Michael Turchin, with whom he plans to adopt children. They will wed next February! Events leading up to their big day will be filmed and televised.
"The wedding will be next year, around February. We're going to air the special around Valentine's Day," Bass said. "I'm producing this one so I'm going to film it and it will show the days leading up to it...because the thing is, we're still two guys getting married, and two guys, it's really hard to plan a wedding, so there's a lot of humor coming out of this because we have no idea what we're doing."
Oh, yes, we will be watching, Lance.
As for baby plans, he said adoption is in their plans. "I want to. I want to have my own also," answered Bass. "We're definitely family people...so we'll have one of mine, one of his. And then probably when they're a little older, I would love to adopt a kid that is a little bit older."
