Lance Bass Says Perez Hilton Bullied Him Into Coming Out in 2006: VIDEO

In an interview with UK's Attitude, Lance Bass revealed that he was bullied into coming out by bloggers like Perez Hilton after he was given a 24-hour ultimatum back in July 2006.

The Independent reports:

BassThe singer, 35, told the Ricki Lake show in 2013 that he was frightened to come out in the early Ninetines and late Noughties, because he feared it would have “completely ruined" the hugely popular boyband.

He has since told Attitude that he was given a day to choose between coming out, or being outed.

"Two years before I came out I was really bullied on the internet by bloggers, that’s when Perez Hilton just started and was just really malicious against me," he said.

"So, because of the bloggers like him hounding me, all the other magazines started calling me and saying , ‘Look, we know you’re gay, you can write the story with or without us, but we have to write it,’ I decided to go with People [magazine] and I think they did a great job.

"I had 24 hours to decide if I was going to come out or not, and within 24 hours it was on the stands."

Check out a clip of Bass talking with childhood friends about living in the closet during his NSNYC days that aired on the Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding special earlier this week, AFTER THE JUMP...

Lance Bass Talks Wedding, Growing Up Gay in the South, and Feeling 'Liberated' as a Married Man: VIDEO

Lance bass

Lance Bass and hubby Michael Turchin sat down with GLAAD: All Access host Claire Pires to discuss their tv special Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding which airs tonight on E!

In the interview, Bass (who grew up in Mississippi) revealed one of the main reasons why he wanted to televise his wedding in the first place:

"Growing up gay in the south is very lonely. So that's one of the main reasons I wanted to do this special was to give hope out there for small town kids to watch this special and let them know that there's nothing wrong with you. You can have this if you want it." 

The two also dished on the funny story of Turchin's proposal, the "humorous" planning that went into the wedding itself (which will be America's first televised same-sex wedding special) and on Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills being "appalled" at the state of their kitchenware before the big day. 

Later, the two shared why marriage means so much to them.

Said Bass:

"Once you're able to say 'husband' it just means so much more. And it means much more to everyone else. Because they treat you differently, they really do. They take you seriously. Then the next question is 'When are you having kids?' You feel like a whole human being....completely liberated, a whole person. No longer a second class citizen anymore - to be able to say 'husband' instead of 'civil partner'"

Bass and Turchin also did a separate interview with Meredith Vieira where they discussed their support for Alabama state Rep. Patricia Todd's pledge to "out" anti-gay lawmakers having extramarital affairs. 


Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding airs tonight at 8/7c on E!
