Lance Bass Disses ‘American Idol’ Commercialism
April 22, 2003 – *NSYNC star Lance Bass tells TV Guide Online that he’s getting turned off by the new season of ‘American Idol’. “It’s gotten a little too commercialized for me,” the singer said, despite the existence of *NSYNC lip balm, corporate tour sponsorships, and dozens of other products and endorsement deals. “I don’t like how they cheese it up with Ford commercials. It’s too Broadway for me. It’s like when that ‘205’ guy, Ruben, and this other girl were singing in front of a mansion in the car. What are they doing? It’s like cheesy karaoke videos they’re creating. It feels like they’re selling out.”
