*NSYNC Justin's Tease Isn't New Group Music ... Just New Backup Vocals

Justin Timberlake saying he's been in the studio with his boy bandmates isn't what it seems ... there's no new *NSYNC music on the way, but they did lend their voices to JT's album.

Here's the deal ... Justin gave *NSYNC fans the ultimate tease this week when he told Kelly Clarkson he was cooking something up with the boy band, leading lotsa folks to believe new tracks and potentially a tour was coming, building on their recent reunion.

But our sources at RCA Records are pumping the brakes, telling us ... Justin's tease was referencing *NSYNC members recording background vocals for his his upcoming album, "Everything I Thought I Was."

TMZ INVESTIGATES

We're told when Justin, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick got together last year to record "Better Place" for 'Trolls Band Together,' they also used their time together in the studio to lay down vocals for JT's new offering.

So, JT's just hyping that collab ... background vocals for that one track, which we guess some might consider a reunion of sorts.

We're also told RCA Records honchos are adamant that when/IF *NSYNC does make a comeback, it needs to be the band's own sound and not Justin's which would also include JC singing half the leads with JT just like with all the hit *NSYNC records.

Unfortunately for *NSYNC fans, that isn't imminent ... we're told Justin is full steam ahead with his upcoming world tour and there are no plans for his old band members to join him on stage.

Of course, there's no doubt fans are clamoring for an *NSYNC reunion album and tour ... and that could become a factor in the future. Right now, our sources say RCA is concerned with Justin's first single stumbling out of the gate.

We're told RCA is nervous fans are upset they're not getting a true *NSYNC song, and that might be why Justin's "Selfish" isn't performing as well as hoped.

The good news is our sources say RCA wants a full band comeback as much as fans do -- but, it's just not in the cards right now.

*NSYNC no tiene nueva música a pesar del teaser de Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake dice que ha estado en el estudio con sus compañeros de banda, pero no es lo que parece... ya que no hay nueva música de *NSYNC en camino. Lo que sí hicieron fue prestar sus voces para el álbum de Justin.

Justin le dio a los fans de *NSYNC falsas esperanzas esta semana cuando le dijo a Kelly Clarkson que estaba cocinando algo con la boy band, llevando a mucha gente a creer que había nuevas canciones y una gira.

Sin embargo, nuestras fuentes en RCA Records están siendo realistas, y nos dicen que todo el asunto se trata de los miembros de *NSYNC grabando voces de fondo para el próximo álbum de Justin, "Everything I Thought I Was".

TMZ Studios

Nos dicen que cuando Justin, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez y Chris Kirkpatrick se reunieron el año pasado para grabar "Better Place" para "Trolls Band Together", también utilizaron su tiempo juntos en el estudio para ponerle voces a la nueva canción de JT.

Por lo tanto, JT está promocionando esa colaboració. Son simplemente voces de fondo para esa pista, que suponemos que algunos podrían considerar una especie de reunión.

También nos han dicho que los jefes de RCA Records son inflexibles respecto a SI *NSYNC hacen un regreso, tiene que ser el propio sonido de la banda y no el de Justin, que también incluiría a JC cantando la mitad de las pistas con JT al igual que en todos los discos exitosos de *NSYNC.

Desafortunadamente para los fans de *NSYNC, eso no es inminente. Nos informan que Justin está a todo vapor con su próxima gira mundial y no hay planes para que sus antiguos miembros de la banda se unan con él en el escenario.

Por supuesto, no hay duda de que los fans están clamando por un álbum de reunión de *NSYNC y una gira. En este momento, nuestras fuentes dicen que RCA está preocupado con el primer single de Justin tropezar fuera de la puerta.

Nos dicen que RCA está nerviosa porque los fans están molestos porque no están recibiendo una verdadera canción de *NSYNC, y que podría ser la razón por la que "Selfish" de Justin no está funcionando tan bien como se esperaba.

La buena noticia es que nuestras fuentes dicen que RCA quiere un regreso de la banda completa tanto como los fans, pero simplemente no está en las cartas en este momento.

Taylor Swift cena en Spago con Brittany Mahomes y Lyndsay Bell

Taylor Swift y Travis Kelce recorrieron más de mil kilómetros para acabar en la misma ciudad... pero pasaron la noche separados.

Taylor está en Los Ángeles para los Globos de Oro el domingo por la noche, y Travis está en la ciudad para Chiefs vs Chargers alrededor de la misma hora.

Taylor, junto con sus amigas Brittany Mahomes y Lyndsay Bell, fueron al Spago de Wolfgang Puck en Beverly Hills el sábado por la noche, sin Travis. Tiene sentido... Travis se está preparando para el juego y una noche fuera habría sido una mala movida.

Entraron en Spago por el callejón trasero después de salir de la finca de Taylor en Beverly Hills.

La información desde el interior del restaurante ... nada espectacular. Se rieron, hablaron y comieron. Al parecer, ella estaba un poco preocupada en su teléfono ... hmmm, me pregunto a quién le estaba enviando mensajes de texto?

Es muy poco probable que Taylor asista al juego, la alfombra roja comienza a las 3:30 y el juego de Travis comienza alrededor de 2 horas antes... ¡a menos que vaya a los Globos de Oro con una chaqueta de los Chiefs!

La noche de chicas fue larga. Llegaron a las 7:30 y se fueron a las 11.

Parece que había mucho de que hablar.

Taylor and Travis So Close, Yet So Far Away!!!

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce both traveled more than a thousand miles to end up in the same city ... but they spent the night apart.

Taylor's in L.A. for the Golden Globes Sunday night, and Travis is in town for Chiefs vs. Chargers around the same time.

Taylor, along with pals Brittany Mahomes and Lyndsay Bell, hit up Wolfgang Puck's Spago in Bev Hills Saturday night, sans Travis. It makes sense ... Travis is getting ready for the game, and a night out would have made the wrong kind of headlines.

They entered Spago from the back alley after leaving from Taylor's Bev Hills estate.

The lowdown from inside the restaurant ... nothing spectacular. They laughed, they talked, they ate. She apparently, was a bit preoccupied on her phone ... hmmm, wonder who she was texting?

It's highly unlikely Taylor will attend the game ... the red carpet starts at 3:30 and Travis's game starts around 2 hours earlier ... that is, unless she goes to the Golden Globes in a Chiefs jacket!

As for the girls' night out ... it was a long one. They arrived at 7:30 and left at 11.

Lots to talk about.

Guess Who This Thirsty Baby Turned Into!

Before this baby sippin' on an empty brewski bottle turned into a triple threat in Hollywood, she was just performing and acting in plays, singing the national anthem at local events and growing up in Orlando, Florida back in the '80s.

Fast forward to 1999 ... she hit the road with iconic boybands, *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys. And, it's likely she performed the song that skyrocketed her to fame ... "Candy." In the mid-2000s, she portrayed herself on HBO's "Entourage."

Need one more clue? She was on a popular show with Sterling K. Brown!

Can you guess who she is?

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE CENTER STAGE AT VEGAS HOTEL LAUNCH

ON HIS SUIT & TIE SH*T
BACKGRID

Justin Timberlake's back in full showman mode ... taking to the stage at the theatre inside the lavish Fontainebleau Las Vegas for its grand opening.

The singer was suited and booted Wednesday night in a white tux for his first performance since April 2019 ... singing tunes from his catalog of hits during a dazzling night of festivities at the brand-spankin' new upscale resort.

In the clip, he's seen performing with a band and backup singer ... and later taking to the piano -- basically pulling out all the stops for the evening, for which he was paid a hefty $6.1 million ... according to The Sun, anyway.

JT's return to the stage may be an attempt to distance himself from ex Britney Spears' sensationalized claims in her memoir "The Woman In Me" ... saying she had an abortion while they were together, which she said he pushed for at the time.

She also alleged he'd cheated during their relationship, and put on a "blaccent" for Ginuwine ... among lots of other claims.

JT was supported at the event by his wife, Jessica Biel ... who looked incredible in a plunging white flowing gown as they arrived arm-in-arm. They later topped off their evening with an appearance at the resort's LIV nightclub.

The new 150,000-square-foot Sin City resort/casino ... owned by Jeff Soffer ... which boasts a new era of luxury hospitality, clearly went above and beyond ... with even icon Paul Anka taking to the stage and bellying up to a celeb-packed craps table.

Honestly, this is what you call high-rolling -- JT, Tom Brady, Cher and Tyga all crowded around to watch the dice. Sylvester Stallone and Kim Kardashian also popped up at the event -- and, imagine this ... Kim made a low-key entrance!

WHAT HAPPENED IN VEGAS

Anything can happen in Vegas.

Justin Timberlake Se sube al escenario para el lanzamiento de un hotel en Las Vegas

De punta en blanco
BACKGRID

Justin Timberlake regresó a los escenarios en modo showman para la gran apertura del lujoso resort Fontainebleau en Las Vegas.

El cantante estuvo de punta en blanco el miércoles por la noche, vestido con un esmoquin blanco para su primera actuación desde abril de 2019. Cantó melodías de su catálogo de éxitos durante una deslumbrante noche de fiesta en el nuevo resort de lujo.

En el clip, se lo ve actuando con una banda y un cantante de apoyo, y más tarde sentándose en el piano, básicamente dando lo mejor de sí durante la velada, por la que recibió la generosa suma de $6,1 millones, según The Sun.

El regreso de Justin a los escenarios puede ser un intento de distanciarse de las afirmaciones de su ex Britney Spears en sus memorias "The Woman In Me". En ellas dijo que se realizó un aborto mientras estaban juntos y que él la presionó en su momento.

También alegó que la había engañado durante su relación y que adoptó un "acento negro" (blaccent) cuando conoció a Ginuwine, entre muchas otras afirmaciones.

Justin Timberlake recibió el apoyo de su esposa Jessica Biel en el evento, quien se veía increíble en un vestido blanco. Más tarde, remataron su noche con una visita al club nocturno LIV del complejo.

El nuevo resort/casino de 150.000 pies cuadrados, propiedad de Jeff Soffer, representa una nueva era en la hospitalidad de lujo y claramente fue más allá. Hasta el icono musical Paul Anka se subió al escenario y se acercó a la mesa de los dados repleta de famosos.

Justin Timberlake, Tom Brady, Cher y Tyga se agolparon para ver el juego. Sylvester Stallone y Kim Kardashian también aparecieron en el evento e, imagínense esto ... Kim hizo una entrada discreta.

En Las Vegas todo puede pasar.

Lance Bass y Joey Fatone cantan canciones de *NSYNC y lanzan muñecos de "Trolls" en una fiesta en Nueva York

NSYNC CON EL ESPÍRITU NAVIDEÑO
TMZ.com

Lance Bass y Joey Fatone están trayendo un poco de estilo *NSYNC a la ciudad de Nueva York, donde actuaron en una fiesta de vacaciones, y probablemente alimentaron esperanzas y sueños de reunión cantando algunos de los éxitos del grupo.

Los cantantes se presentaron en la Bilt Rewards Winter Holiday House Party el martes por la noche en Maxwell Social en Tribeca. Había más de 350 invitados, entre ellos el fundador y CEO de Bilt Rewards Ankur Jain fueron entretenidos por el dúo sorpresa, que se puso al micrófono para cantar temas como "Bye Bye Bye" y "Tearin 'Up My Heart".

Joey y Lance también se tomaron un tiempo para cantar el éxito navideño del grupo, "Feliz Navidad, Felices Fiestas".

También lanzaron algunos muñecos de peluche de "Trolls" a la gente en la audiencia una punta del sombrero a la reciente reunión de la banda de chicos para una canción en la película de Justin Timberlake, "Trolls Band Together".

Los chicos se toparon con algunas estrellas de "RHONY" a lo largo de la noche, incluyendo la condesa Luann de Lesseps y la novata Erin Lichy y su marido Abraham, así como Dorinda Medley, que además se unió a Lance y Joey en el escenario para "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!"'

Las estrellas de RHONJ, Dolores Catania y Margaret Josephs, uno de los miembros de la Million Dollar Listing de Nueva York, Ryan Serhant, y la integrante de RHONY, Carole Radziwill, también estaban en la fiesta.

No hay rastro de Justin, JC Chasez, y Chris Kirkpatrick en la fiesta... seamos honestos, conseguir todo el grupo habría sido MUCHO mejor.

Aunque la canción "Trolls" creó esperanzas de que los chicos harían un álbum completo o incluso una gira, la palabra de la gente en el saber es que todavía no está sucediendo.

Lance Bass & Joey Fatone Singin' *NSYNC Hits At Holiday Party ... Chucking 'Trolls' Dolls to Crowd!

NSYNC WITH THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT
TMZ.com

Lance Bass and Joey Fatone are bringing some *NSYNC flair to New York City, where they performed at a holiday party, and probably fueled reunion hopes and dreams by singing some of the group's hits.

The singers showed up at the Bilt Rewards Winter Holiday House Party Tuesday night at Maxwell Social in Tribeca -- and over 350 guests including Bilt Rewards Founder & CEO Ankur Jain were entertained by the surprise duo, who jumped on the mic to sing tracks like "Bye Bye Bye" and "Tearin' Up My Heart."

And, since 'tis the season ... Joey and Lance also took some time to sing the group's holiday hit, "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays."

They were also chucking some stuffed 'Trolls' dolls out to folks in the audience -- a tip of the hat to the boy band's recent reunion for a song in Justin Timberlake's flick, "Trolls Band Together."

The guys bumped into a few "RHONY" stars throughout the night ... including Countess Luann de Lesseps and newbie Erin Lichy and her husband Abraham, as well as Dorinda Medley -- who actually joined Lance and Joey onstage for "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!"'

RHONJ stars Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs, Million Dollar Listing New York's Ryan Serhant, and RHONY alum Carole Radziwill were also at the party.

No sign of Justin, JC Chasez, and Chris Kirkpatrick at the holiday shindig -- let's be honest, getting the whole group would've been a MUCH higher price tag.

Although the 'Trolls' song built up hopes the guys would do a full album or even tour ... the word from folks in the know is it still isn't happening.

*NSYNC Members Uniting for 'Trolls' ... Mini Premiere Post-Strike

The *NSYNC boys are attempting some 11th-hour press before the 'Trolls' movie hits theaters -- and one way they'll be plugging the product is with a group powwow in front of cameras.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Justin Timberlake and the other 4 boy band members are planning to attend a premiere, of sorts, later this week in L.A. ahead of the animated film's release ... which drops Friday.

We know this coming-together is happening Wednesday somewhere in Hollywood -- but the exact details are being kept under wraps for now. Our sources do say, however, that all of the fellas started making last-minute travel arrangements for this as late as Thursday.

It probably goes without saying ... this is happening at the behest of the studio, Universal, which we're told wants to try and get *NSYNC out in front of reporters and the public any way they can to promote the film ... they obviously know how popular they are as a unit.

Now that the SAG-AFTRA strike is over, just about every major studio is doing this -- namely, getting their big stars together and attempting to get a little momentum amid some mediocre box office returns lately. Brie Larson tried it this past week ... to no avail.

We're told if the strike would've ended a month or so ago ... Universal would've planned a massive premiere with all 5 members, but instead -- they're whipping up this somewhat smaller event in hopes that it can drum up some buzz for 'Trolls Band Together.'

None of the *NSYNC guys have been able to talk about/plug the flick -- obviously JT voice acts in it, but so does Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick. They all have credits on IMDb ... so it seems their work on this goes beyond that nifty new song.

ANOTHER REUNION
TMZ.com

Now, if you think this public outing as a team signals of a larger reunion tour to come -- you're unfortunately wrong ... sources tell us that ain't happening in the near future. Justin's working on a new album/tour, and scheduling remains an issue. Never say never, though.

It might happen some day ... just not right now.

Lance Bass No odien a Justin... ¡¡¡Britney lo perdonó!!!

"Todos tienen su propia opinión"
TMZ.com

Lance Bass dice que el odio a Justin Timberlake tiene que parar... porque si Britney Spears pudo perdonarlo, todo el mundo puede hacerlo.

Nos encontramos con el miembro de *NSYNC el jueves en LAX y nos dijo que se estaba preparando para leer las nuevas memorias de Britney, que está repleto de historias sobre su exnovio, Justin Timberlake.

Lance dice que la gente que va detrás de Justin por su rol en el aborto de Britney, las acusaciones de engaño y su eventual ruptura debería parar y ser más compasiva.

Aunque Lance cree que todo el mundo tiene derecho a tener su propia opinión sobre el cantante, piensa que las personas deberían tomar nota de la actitud de Britney y ser un poco más tolerante.

El libro de Britney ha sido un gran éxito, y Lance se alegra de que ella haya sido capaz de contar su versión de las cosas, bromeando que debería copiarle y conseguir que Michelle Williams realice la versión de audio de su propio libro de memorias, si alguna vez escribe uno.

Fiel a nuestro chico

Por su parte, Justin ha estado bastante callado sobre Britney, pero Lance está de su lado.

También le preguntamos sobre lo último con *NSYNC después de la gran reunión para los MTV VMAs y su nueva canción, pero no parece que esté en los planes el hacer una gira o un álbum, al menos por ahora.

Lance Bass Don't Hate On Justin ... Britney Forgives Him!!!

"EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN OPINION"
TMZ.com

Lance Bass says the Justin Timberlake hate needs to stop ... because if Britney Spears can forgive him, so can everyone else.

We got the *NSYNC member Thursday at LAX and he told us he was getting set to read Britney's new memoir, which is chocked full of stories about her ex-boyfriend, JT.

Lance says folks coming after Justin for his role in Britney's abortion, the cheating allegations and their eventual breakup should back off and practice a little forgiveness.

While Lance says everyone is entitled to their own opinion about Justin, he says people should take a note from Britney and just cut the guy some slack.

Britney's book has been a smash hit ... and Lance is glad she's been able to tell her side of things, joking about copying her and getting Michelle Williams to do the audio version should he ever write a memoir.

STICKIN' BY OUR BOY

For his part, Justin's been pretty mum on Britney's tell-all ... but Lance has his back.

We also asked Lance about the latest with *NSYNC after the boy band's big reunion at the MTV VMAs and their new song ... but it doesn't sound like a tour or an album are in the works, at least not yet.

*NSYNC Staying Supportive of Justin ... As He's Dragged in Britney Memoir

Justin Timberlake is feelin' the heat amid Britney Spears' new book release -- and all the spilled secrets about their relationship -- but we're told his *NSYNC bros still have his back.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez have nothing but love for Justin, and they're supporting him through all the harsh criticism due to "The Woman in Me."

We're told they've all known him for 25 years, and would be more than happy to be back performing with him ... despite all the negative energy Britney and her loyal fans are aiming at JT.

Remember, in her book Brit blames him for talking her into an abortion, accuses him of cheating and claims a run-in with Justin triggered a panic attack that ruined her 2007 VMA performance.

While *NSYNC fans and RCA Records would love another Reunion, it isn't in the cards right now -- we're told Justin's focused on his new solo single, album and a tour next year.

BTW, our sources say the hate JT's been getting isn't impacting his career plans. The single and tour for next summer are a full go -- however, we're told he's quietly removed some club appearances that were set for early next year, tied to the release of his single and album.

As we reported, there are no current talks about *NSYNC doing more together -- Justin said recording "Better Place" would just be a special thing for his 'Trolls' sequel.

STICKIN' BY OUR BOY
TMZ.com

Still, our sources say the other 4 members are staying excited about the potential for Justin to change his mind, and get back in a studio -- or on a stage -- together.

*NSYNC APOYAN A JUSTIN LUEGO DE LAS POLÉMICAS DE BRITNEY

Justin Timberlake está en el ojo del huracán debido al nuevo libro de Britney Spears. La cantante ha revelado muchos secretos y los compañeros de *NSYNC apoyan a Justin a pesar de todo.

Fuentes familiarizadas con la situación le dicen a TMZ que Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, y JC Chasez no tienen nada más que amor por Justin y lo están apoyando debido a todo el ruido que están haciendo las memorias de Britney, "The Woman in Me".

Nos dicen que la energía negativa que está recibiendo Justin no interfiere en nada con las ganas trabajar con él de nuevo, añadiendo que todos lo conocen desde hace 25 años y estarían más que felices de estar de vuelta en el escenario juntos.

A los fans y RCA Records les encantaría otra reunión *NSYNC, pero no está en los planes de Justin en este momento. Nos informan que está centrado en su nuevo single, álbum y una gira el próximo año.

Por cierto, nuestras fuentes dicen que el hate que Justin ha estado recibiendo no va a interferir en el lanzamiento del próximo single y gira programada para el próximo verano. Sin embargo, nos dicen que ha retirado discretamente algunas apariciones en discotecas para principios del próximo año relacionadas con el lanzamiento del single y el álbum.

Como informamos, no hay conversaciones actuales sobre hacer algo más en el futuro. Nos informan que Justin dijo que "Better Place" (para la película 'Trolls') es un caso especial.

Sin embargo, nuestras fuentes dicen que los otros 4 miembros están entusiasmados con la posibilidad de que Justin cambie de opinión y vuelvan al estudio todos juntos.

*NSYNC, BACKSTREET BOYS, DESTINY'S CHILD No cantarían en el Super Bowl ... A pesar de las especulaciones de los fans

Los fans han estado pensando si ex grupos como *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys o Destiny's Child se subirán el escenario del Super Bowl este año, pero resulta que eso no va a suceder.

Fuentes con conocimiento directo dicen a TMZ que, a pesar de los rumores de que las tres icónicas bandas del pasado unirían fuerzas para el Super Bowl LVIII en Las Vegas, ese simplemente no es el caso.

Nos dicen que los grupos no han sido contactados y que tampoco hay conversaciones para hacerlo realidad.

Internet se volvió loco después de que se difundieran rumores de una posible actuación de *NSYNC y Destiny's Child en el gran partido del próximo año, y la ilusión se extendió un poco más para incluir a Backstreet Boys.

La nostalgia se disparó desde que *NSYNC se reuniera para los MTV VMAs y volviera a los estudios a grabar su primera canción en décadas para la nueva película 'Trolls'.

TMZ dio la noticia, *NSYNC no tiene planes de iniciar una gira, residencia o álbum a pesar de las especulaciones, pero eso no significa que el Super Bowl esté fuera de la mesa, ¿verdad? Error.

*NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Destiny's Child We're Not Singing at Super Bowl LVIII ... Despite Fan Speculation

Fans have been thinking former groups *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and Destiny's Child will all take the stage at this year's Super Bowl ... turns out, it's not gonna happen.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... despite rumors that the 3 iconic musical bands of the past will join forces for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, it's just not the case.

We're told the groups haven't been approached to perform, and no conversations are going down to turn it into reality.

The internet's been going nuts after rumors spread about *NSYNC and Destiny's Child being slated to perform at next year's big game ... and the dream expanded to include the Backstreet Boys.

The nostalgia train has really taken off since *NSYNC reunited at the MTV VMAs and got back in the booth to record the first song in decades for the new 'Trolls' flick.

TMZ broke the story, *NSYNC has no plans to start a tour, residency, or album despite speculation, but that doesn't mean the Super Bowl is off the table, right? Wrong.
