Shocking nobody, Princess Frostylocks tells People he’s gay and dating Reichen
Former ‘N Sync member Lance Bass is now officially gay.
In the new issue of People magazine, Bass says he kept his sexual identity under wraps during his boy-band days because he was afraid it would derail the band’s success. He says he knew that if he “ever acted on it” or admitted it, then “it would overpower everything.”
Bass known as “Princess Frostlylocks” on many gossip blogs says he’s coming out now because rumors of his sexuality were growing louder. But he stresses that he’s happy and not at all ashamed of being gay.
“I don’t think it’s wrong, I’m not devastated going through this. I’m more liberated and happy than I’ve been my whole life,” he says.
Bass says he’s in a “very stable” relationship with model-actor and “Amazing Race” winner Reichen Lehmkuhl.
