James Lance Bass (born May 4, 1979)[4] is an American pop singer, dancer, actor, film and television producer, and author. He grew up in Mississippi and became famous as a singer in the American pop boy band NSYNC. NSYNC's success led Bass to work in film and television. He starred in the 2001 film On the Line, which his company, Bacon & Eggs, also produced.[5] Bass later formed a second production company, Lance Bass Productions,[6] as well as a now-defunct music management company, Free Lance Entertainment, with Mercury Records.[7] In 2006 he came out as gay.[8] Bass has Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.[9] A book that Bass wrote about his life so far, Out of Sync, was published in 2007. In September 2013 Bass became engaged to Michael Turchin.[10]
