ooh who is it?
Music is def still his passion, just not the performing part of it anymore :(. He's still writing for other artists and has written stuff for k-pop groups, Girls Aloud, Sugababes, and also being a dog dad lol. He was going to be in a touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar several years ago with Brandon Boyd from Incubus and Michelle from Destiny's Child, but it was canceled during the start of rehearsals, smh he has awful luck.
lol tbf here's what he looked like pre-corona at the Elton John Oscars party.
No stage presence? haha I beg to differ
if you've seen NSYNC performances, homeboy was always giving 110% and belting those E5 notes at the same time.
And to this day JT still wants to act like NSYNC’s breakup wasn’t a big deal and that the other guys pretty much knew it was over.
I’m glad Lance and Joey have told their sides of the story. There's an Instagram account that is piecing together the pieces of the hiatus puzzle and it's quite interesting. It looks like every time the guys were supposed to regroup to discuss business, JT was on tour. I'm not sure what the four other guys could have done if the label was telling them to keep their schedules open for NSYNC. Lance talked about having to pass up opportunities right? But he, Joey, and JC didn't just sit around waiting and doing nothing. Lance still has his production company bags going and same for Joey and hosting TV shows, JC and his songwriting. Their manager Johnny Wright (who also last month commented on Janet's IG randomly and told her to forgive Justin, the audacity) was shady to keep the four in the dark so JT could rise. And then you have Jive's CEO and Justin's biggest champion trying to pin the group's dissolution on Lance wanting to become an astronaut *facepalm*, when Lance going to space was never a guarantee and he even made sure to fit his training within the original time frame of an expected regrouping. When NSYNC first took a break, there wasn't any mention of JT officially doing a solo album until he confirmed it himself in June of '02, and by then I'm sure his record was almost done.
If these rumors are true JT also held up the guys from putting out another album so they had to work around that by using old demos. I’ve heard tea the guys had offers for residencies/tours in the past, but JT wanted to be paid 2x whatever his band mates got, plus Chris allegedly wasn’t into the idea of a reunion as a foursome (he loves him some JT), until after they did Coachella with Ariana and got a good reception.
As for JC being the one blocking a reunion from happening, there was this from a gossip column before corona shut everything down. I think he makes an easy culprit because he is the most private out of all the guys. When he went on Lance’s podcast last year and Lance asked him about the possibility of reuniting, JC gave the same “I’m not saying no, not saying yes” answer that each of his band mates also gave. When Lance interviewed JT, JT said he was “open to discussing a reunion” with the other four, and I guess NSYNC fans interpreted that to mean “JT isn’t the one preventing a reunion, it’s JC because he’s bitter about his solo career/jealous of JT’s success” etc. I don’t put much stock in that considering most of the people who blame JC are JT stans who are tired of seeing JT dragged by the general public. JC was also present for Lance's birthday zoom last year, while JT wasn't. I also feel like JC has done more to interact with NSYNC fans in recent years like when they got their Walk of Fame star or when he RT'ed fans for the 20th anniversary of No Strings Attached album.
If JT's currently working on another album and doing a TV show on Apple, then I don't expect he would be interested in reunion stuff for now.
Lastly, I <3 how JC's always had such positive things to say about Brit.
