LANCE BASS, American singer (N’Sync), born: American pop singer, actor, film and television producer, and author. He grew up in Mississippi and rose to fame as the bass singer for the American pop boy-band ‘N Sync. ‘N Sync’s success led Bass to experiment with film and television, primarily as an actor and a producer. Bass’ acting career is most noted for his starring role in the 2001 film On The Line, which his company, Bacon & Eggs, also produced.

Bass later formed a second production company, Lance Bass Productions, as well as a now-defunct music management company, Free Lance Entertainment, a joint venture with Mercury Records. In July 2006, Bass revealed that he was gay in a cover story for People magazine. In keeping with HRCs ongoing “Suck Up to Celebrity” campaign, Bass was awarded the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award in October 2006, and released an autobiography, Out of Sync, in October 2007, which debuted on The New York Times Best Seller list.

Bass married actor Michael Turchin in 2014.
