In a lot of ways, Justin Timberlake achieved the impossible. After spending the first half of his life serenading screaming girls, he was able to completely reinvent himself--thanks to good looks, smart dating choices and SNL.
Timberlake was able to side-step his boy band past, so could his spiky-haired, baby-faced brethren to do the same?
Well, Lance Bass is certainly going to try.
This July, Bass launched 'The Pop Ten,' a weekly radio show on SiriusXM, which bills itself as so much more than a music countdown. It's tapestry of pop culture--a fusion between friendly talk show, including celebrity guests, and a music countdown--with Bass at its the center.
The Daily Beast recently profiled the 'N Sync star to illustrate a dizzying ambition and a budding comeback.
Bass has been on the periphery of pop culture for a while, making headlines when he announced his homosexuality and his heartfelt space aspirations.
Recently, his interests are a little more grounded, but still impressive. Though Timberlake is trying to revamp Myspace, Bass is putting his own entrepreneurship to work with FamousYardSale, a site dedicated to selling off celebrity's belongings. He is also planning on turning that concept into a reality TV show.
But as the article explains, that's not all. "Bass has at least four TV other shows in development, including a sitcom and another reality competition in a format similar to The Voice, but for aspiring boy-band members."
So, what do you think? Can lightning strike twice for this boy band?
