  2. I'd hit THAT. :-)

  3. I don't get it...

    A few months back, he had a butch, boxer looking photo-shoot: soiled, "bruised" and hairy- and sweaty-faced but a slick-as-a-dolphin shiny shaved chest....

    Now he has the pancake-make-up, be-lipsticked femme look, but with sprigs of chest-hair showing (in the first photo)...'s like he doesn't *really* want to "commit" to either look...! ;-)

  4. Excellent make-up & styling for a shoot.
    Lance Bass has a good life. I hope he's
    grateful for all his good fortune.

  5. Terrance: In most cases it's the photographer who dictates the theme of the shoot.

    The model just goes along for the ride.
    I think the pics are fun!

  6. He looks more butch this way rather than the smiley surfer twink look he usually has. But good makeup and good photos makes lance bass pull it off.

  7. Not a flattering look on him.

  8. Ruiz makes all his subject look like bad Puerto Rican drag queens.

  9. Adam Lambert, return to Hell from whence you came!

  10. yeah, riding the Lambert train much? difference is Adam Lambert actually has this thing called, what's that word again? oh right - a singing career. Bass has just straight up traded his in for traipsing around as Once Pertinent Gay Boy. despite their hackneyed retread, these pics might be slightly interesting if Bass actually did something.

  13. Top pic may be the best he's ever looked... Who knew he was so pretty?

  14. He'd make a cool drag queen. I'd like to see him do that once.

  15. He looks like Freddy Mercury in the final days.

  16. Love it.

  17. Anybody know what the photo shoot was for?

    Posted by: Stephen | Jun 1, 2010 5:22:45 PM

  18. That first pic is totally Phil Oakey - love it! Looks good.

  19. These photos remind of the lead singer of the Human League. "Don't you want me, baby... don't you want me oooohooohh"

  20. I see Phil Oakey from Human League - and I think Lance pulls it off well

  21. Ever since you added that twitter widget thing at the bottom of every page it completely ties up my system while it loads. This happens on every page and really limits my desire to browse your otherwise fantastic website. Am I the only one having this problem?

  22. Ewwww!

  23. He looks awsome to me. So many narrow minded queens on the page.

  24. Men with makeups always did scare me LOL!

  25. @Hughman:
    I was just thinking that, too, "Does Lance Bass actually do anything anymore"?

    I mean, Joey at least has TV work now and again, and is marginally fuckable (which I say as a bear).
