Born on May 4, 1979, in Laurel Mississippi, US, to father Jim, a medical technologist, and mother Diana, a middle school teacher, Lance Bass was a sensual kid growing up. He liked to go to school and get involved in activities. Both of his parents were conservative Christians.
Of course, he could sing since his early days. However, singing wasn't his initial dream. He wanted to be an astronaut when he was a young boy. At the age of 9, his father takes him to see a shuttle launch at Florida's Cape Canaveral.
Later, he gets a chance to sing in a church choir. He sings at the church and impresses everybody. This is when he decides to be a famous singer one day.
Later, at his study place "Clinton High School", he meets a rising young singer Justin Timberlake. Bass was also a popular figure in school known for performing in various programs and events. He was also a member of a musical group responsible for Mississippi museum cultural heritage communication.
Anyway, he gets selected after the audition which JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick and Justin Timberlake take. And, to keep their name NYSYNC, Lance gets named Lansten.
Interesting wiki, the band name NYSYNC was made up with a letter from name of the each original members; Justi(N), Chri(S), Joe(Y), Jaso(N), and J(C). And, the band name was derived from a comment of Justin Timberlake's mother. She had said the group singing voices were "in sync" after hearing them.
Some more wiki, during a daytime US chat show, he stated that he was sexually harassed by a music executive as a NYSYNC member. In February 2002, he was so near to fulfill his lifelong dream of going to space via Russian Soyuz TMA-1, but all his sponsor pulled out, some citing his death risks and some citing financial issues. Fortunately, his dream of going to space saved his life as it was discovered that he had cardiac arrhythmia in pre-space training. Shortly, he went through a heart surgery. Nevertheless, he is also close to Kardashian family.
Last but not the least, the man who is worth around 22 to 25 million US dollars
