This was one of the most popular boy-bands around! It’s no wonder why they skyrocketed to the top and many have been left to wonder why the band broke up in the first place. Obviously, the star of this band turned out to be Justin Timberlake but back then, you wouldn’t have guessed how far he would go on his own. However, since this band broke up, Justin has gone on to be a mega-star! Now, he reveals why he left NSYNC:
1. The ultimate boy-band.
At the top of their game.
2. They dominated the 90s!
They sold more than 2.5 million albums a week.
3. The lawsuit.
They grew up mostly on the road and even filed a lawsuit against their manager, Lou Pearlman which gained a lot of attention.
4. Tons of fans.
Growing up like this was hard and they can still remember being chased by these boy-crazed fans!
5. The break-up.
They formally announced a hiatus in 2002 which was an extreme shock to the fans.
6. Justin tells all.
He was the reason the band broke up saying, “We were on a stadium tour, and I just felt like the whole thing was too big. It started as a fun snowball fight that was becoming an avalanche. And also, I was growing out of it.”
7. A different path.
Just explains that, “I felt like I cared more about the music than some of the other people in the group. I felt like I had other music I wanted to make, and that I needed to follow my heart.”
8. Where is he now?
All over the place! He has released four best-selling albums, did some acting and even skits on SNL.
9. JC Chasez.
JC has also stayed in the music scene with a solo album that was released in 2004.
10. Lance Bass.
He followed his heart as well and came out in 2006. He also pursued acting, dancing and writing.
11. Joey Fatone.
He took his skills to ‘Dancing With The Stars’.
12. Chris Kirkpatrick.
He turned to acting and has done some voiceover work for ‘The Fairly Off Parents’.
There’s always a chance for a reunion!
