There goes his theory to PEOPLE:
“I’ve met so many people like me that it’s really encouraged me. I kind of call them the SAGs—the straight-acting gays. We’re just normal, typical guys. I love to watch football and drink beer.”
January 26, 2010 at 6:54 pm
Wow that does not even look like Lance!
January 26, 2010 at 6:58 pm
he made out with my roommate at mandalay bay back when they were relevant.
January 26, 2010 at 6:59 pm
He used to have a baby face, now its very lean, did he loose a ton of weight or something?

Really? “Straight Acting Gay?”
Self loathing is soooo millennial and what with 2010, I hope he’s had a change of heart.
And I also hope that this means he’s not gonna try to launch a solo album. Or a group album, really.
January 26, 2010 at 7:10 pm
interesting phots-although not what i’d consider “glam.”
David in Houston says
January 26, 2010 at 7:11 pm
What exactly has he done since n’Sync disbanded? Aside from being gay, I don’t know why he’s relevant.
Paul R says
January 26, 2010 at 7:18 pm
Who gives a flying crap what he’s doing? He likes to play dress-up and date hot models. Wow.
He does nothing else.
And no, that’s not glam. It’s Clockwork Orange in the first shot and a weak amalgamation of various influences in the second (mainly Kurt Cobain),
January 26, 2010 at 7:32 pm
I’m gay and I watch football and play golf and shoot pool and – insert masculine stereotype here- but I can’t stand to hear the phrase “straight acting.” I’m not interesting in anyone who is “acting” – unless they are actors, and then only when they are working.
The only remarkable thing about Bass is that he has been able to extend his fame on the basis of his status as a professional queer.
January 26, 2010 at 7:42 pm
The first pic is the only hot pic of Lance Bass that I have ever seen.
January 26, 2010 at 7:45 pm
Lance Bass does a Jered Leto Impersonation! Beah!
Sargon Bighorn says
January 26, 2010 at 7:46 pm
I’m a straight acting Gay man. I’m also a femme acting Butch man. A cat acting dog man. and Vegan acting carnivore and a Dem acting Repub. At this point in my life I’m so confused I don’t know if I should stand or sit when I pee! Help me Lance! Will football help? I’m a baseball loving football man!
January 26, 2010 at 7:51 pm
Ironic, that it takes huge amounts of makeup to make him look the most straight acting he’s ever looked. The self loathing really needs to stop.
January 26, 2010 at 7:58 pm
Well, now that the queens have descended and inputted their vitriol, I can come in and say I think he’s relevant, positive force in the GLTBQ community. As a 23 year old, yeah, I’ve made some mistakes and yeah, he’s made some too, but why lambast people within our own community? I think the pictures are awesome and props to Lance for staying afloat in such a difficult industry.
January 26, 2010 at 8:00 pm
Nice nosejob, fembot
January 26, 2010 at 8:04 pm
Who? Sorry, not familiar. By the way, I’m a gay-acting guy who is straight (GAS).
January 26, 2010 at 8:17 pm
I think what Lance is saying is that gayness is influential to metro sexuality, and sporty gays are legitimately interested in sports. I don’t equate straight acting with self loathing. Being queeny is funny, but not so sexy…
January 26, 2010 at 8:32 pm
Dave, Lance that’s who LANCE! And you can’t act any more gayer than a straight acting Gay man. Try I DARE YA with a dress on!
Statement: “Come Back stranger!”
Response: “I can’t come back any stranger than I already am.”
Now THAT’S Gay.

I always like it when Lance shows up out of nowhere with a new generically hot hanger on BF, but, I never expected this. Look, we have so few out gays celebs that I’ll give him a pass. I do have to thank you Matthew because I remember how much that little quote pissed me off at the time, but, so what now?
Does he have a new BF or maybe he’s got Glamberts old one? Inquiring minds want to know.
Btw, Mike Ruiz,yo’ve really come a long way, I remember when you first learned how to cross process! Hi!
January 26, 2010 at 9:21 pm
I agree with peterparker, these are the first pics I’ve seen of Lance where I actually thought he looked hot!
John Normile says
January 26, 2010 at 9:30 pm
WoW so bitchy
January 26, 2010 at 9:32 pm
why are sissies so bitchy?
January 26, 2010 at 9:36 pm
He’s never looked better
Jay M says
January 26, 2010 at 9:58 pm
Wow! Let’s retract the claws ladies. I find it funny that people are complaining about pictures Mike Ruiz put up on his FACEBOOK page. Stop Facebook creeping!
Also, you only wish you looked as good as he does. He’s looking quite sexy with the 5 o’clock shadow-heroin chic look. The first sign of being insecure is putting someone down to make yourself feel better. I’d take a look in mirror.
I’d also agree that this is probably the ‘butchest’ Lance has ever looked. I saw a billboard in NYC and he looked so effeminate I knew he was the gay one years before he even came. Granted I thought he looked hot in that one too.
January 26, 2010 at 10:07 pm
Wow – that’s the first photo of Lance Bass that didn’t trigger my lactose intolerance. There may be hope.
Gyeong Hwa Pak says
Sorry, this look just doesn’t work for him (or many others). Of course, that’s my subjective opinion.
January 26, 2010 at 10:23 pm
HILARIOUS–and yes, we’re laughing at you, not with you.
January 26, 2010 at 10:45 pm
great a closet case forced out of the closet by Perez Hilton of all people, notorious for dating people based on their looks, and now known for only working out and getting a new face – gets more press by those obsessed with looks … uh other than being outed he is nothing more than Heidi Montag
Blain Rushing says
January 26, 2010 at 10:59 pm
That interview with People was like 3 years ago. People change (and, understandably, say ridiculous things when they’re first coming out). I find him relevant and I think these pictures are amazing.
January 26, 2010 at 11:20 pm
not even close to Glam Rock. have you ever seen early David Bowie? i did live in ’74-’75. now Bowie was Glam Rock. this mess is just makeup 101 a la Michael Alig’s Disco 2000. i was there too.
January 26, 2010 at 11:22 pm
Lance Bass never looked hot…until now. The man has eclipsed the boy.
January 26, 2010 at 11:50 pm
Is the neckwear a subliminal message for a fetish he likes or just bad props from the photog?
sd memory card says
January 27, 2010 at 2:03 am
It’s a great photo shoot over here and it’s really very nice photo’s capture. I like it’s style..
January 27, 2010 at 6:08 am
Damn, I never thought Lance was remotely hot but he sure is here.
January 27, 2010 at 8:09 am
Now if someone could get the guy some sort of useful talent, he could really go places!

I like the look, kind of hot in a strange way. Good for him
seattle mike says
January 27, 2010 at 12:13 pm
Well, I happen to like the guy, even if he did say something stupid a few years ago. He probably regrets it now. And, yeah, this look is hot. Dude is built, too. Loved it on DWTS when he did one dance with his shirt unbuttoned. Damn!
January 27, 2010 at 12:32 pm
no…..this is just dumb! @Jimmy is right…what the f@&% is “straight acting” supposed to mean ? I hate it…….now what did Reichen see in this guy ?
January 27, 2010 at 2:14 pm
“Is the neckwear a subliminal message for a fetish he likes or just bad props from the photog?” Thank you DKNATL! I was hoping someone else picked up on that. It sure would explain why he looks wet.
January 27, 2010 at 3:24 pm
Homos! Give the “Straight Acting Gay” comment a rest! That was years ago when he was just coming to terms with being out. I’m positive that even he regrets saying that–but at the time, I honestly believe he didn’t know any better. Cut him some slack–he seems like a really nice guy. Let’s not be grudge holders—give him a break.

i’m by no means a fan, generally speaking, but those photos are HOT.
Glenn Walker says
January 27, 2010 at 5:11 pm
Shouldn’t he be holding something big in his hand, or somewhere? I didn’t recognize him without such.
January 27, 2010 at 5:56 pm
Why was this earlier comment deleted? Ugh–ugly censorship on a gay site. I’ll try again: Shouldn’t Mr. Black be holding something big in hand or somewhere else. I couldn’t recognize him without such.

I like Lance Bass, and I like him a lot more than Justin Timberlake. (I personally can’t stand that overrated, overexposed bitch, and I’ve never forgiven him for his part in Nipplegate 2004.) These are great photos of Lance.
But I have to wonder if Lance is thinking that he doesn’t want to just be the gay guy from NSYNC who went on DWTS. He is probably a very talented guy (perhaps even more talented than Justin Timberlake) who, because he had to play the Mary Wilson/Florence Ballard/Cindy Birdsong co-role with Joey and Chris and JC to Justin’s Diana Ross role, hasn’t gotten the opportunities to prove how talented he is and if he come out of Justin’s shadow. I don’t think that he wakes up every morning thinking that he’s just going to be the gay guy from NSYNC. He most likely wishes that he can carve out his own place in the world. If not as a singer, then as something else.
I firmly believe that we need to support and encourage our own LGBT performers and personalities (especially those in their 20s and 30s) to be the best that they can be. We shouldn’t coddle them, but we shouldn’t tear them down either. We shouldn’t any longer try to throw our dreams and passions at heterosexuals who probably don’t give a shit about us and are only using us to look good.
I’m going to write an open letter to Lance and post it on my Facebook page.
January 27, 2010 at 11:08 pm
he looks kind of like tim roth in these photos.
January 28, 2010 at 12:15 pm
Kudos to the fotog for pulling off this look on Lance Bass. Very impressive. NOW lets see if LB can actually pull it off in public!

that’s actually pretty perceptive, Alex.
