Lance Bass Describes How He Popped The Question to Michael Turchin in New Orleans: AUDIO


Yesterday Towleroad reported that Lance Bass became engaged to his boyfriend Michael 'Turkey' Turchin.

On a special Sunday edition of his SiriusXM show broadcast from The Bourbon Pub at New Orleans' Southern Decadence festival, Bass talked about how he popped the question, in front of the city's Jackson Square, his favorite spot in NoLa:

Well, [when we got there I find out that] they locked all the gates this weekend, and you can’t get into the park.  So we peeled off, and I told him we [had] to pick up [Dirty Pop/SiriusXM] producer Sam up…so as we were walking to ‘pick up Sam,’ I started talking about the last two and half years [and] I got down on one knee and I proposed, right in front of Jackson Square, my favorite place.  And it was great too because a couple just happened to see…I was down on one knee [for only about]…two seconds…right as I was about to propose, I was pretty nervous.”

It was great because this couple who had also proposed right at this same spot, they had just gotten married and said ‘We just saw you propose, can we please take your camera and take a picture [of you] on your knee?’ So I will have that for the rest of my life."
