Episode #100: "Just the Beginning"


2012-07-28-LanceBass.jpegLance Bass, once a boy-bander, now a radio host, TV star, and do-gooder, joins us this week for the 100th episode of The Six Pack! It's been six years since Lance declared "I'm gay" on the cover of People magazine. With the recent coming out of Anderson Cooper and Frank Ocean, does this make Lance a trailblazer?

Regarding Anderson Cooper's coming out, Lance says:

Everyone does it on their own time. Anderson and I have been friends for years, and of course I know him, and and I know his boyfriend very well, for years. But he was out to his friends and family, so to us it wasn't a big deal, and the industry knew. Unfortunately, there are still people who have to worry about their careers in this industry, because we make everything for Middle America. Those are the minds we're trying to change. So with Anderson I understand it completely, because he's a journalist and doesn't want anyone to look at him and say, "Of course he's going to side with him, because he's gay!"

Lance also gives us his take on the resurgence of boy bands and what it was like to be in the closet while in 'NSYNC. (And does he think any of the One Direction guys is gay? You know we can't help but ask.) Click play!
