This *NSYNC Reunion Is What Our Prepubescent Dreams Are Made Of


There are three types of girls in the world. *NSYNC girls. Backstreet girls. And the girls who are too young to give a shit (bitches). Back in the day, however, picking a side was an important way to distinguish who could be your friends and who was obviously delusional. I mean, if someone’s dream boyfriend was in Backstreet Boys, but you were mentally dating Lance (lol), there’s no way the two of you could get along.

But then the bands broke up, (or in the Backstreet Boys’ case became irrelevant except for those random throwback pregames or when you randomly go to their concert when you’re in college just because “It’ll be funny” and then you end up drunkenly crying over how much you still love them. Just me?). The only one we ever really kept up with and kept fantasizing about was Justin Timberlake, but you can’t help but remember where he started.

And apparently, he remembers it well too.

He recently posted a picture to his Instagram of him hanging out with his original four best friends. And if the smiling faces of Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, and Chris Kirkpatrick don’t make your ovaries twitch, nothing will.

JC's 40th… And, if you don't know now you know…

First of all, let’s take a moment of silence for the sad fact that people from the boy bands we grew up with are now in their forties. And now, let’s appreciate that like fine cheese and wine, all of these men grew up damn fine. I was always team Backstreet growing up, but after comparing the two, team *NSYNC is definitely hotter.

Your move, BSB.
