Joey isn’t ruling out a reunion down the road, but he tells HollywoodLife.com that scheduling conflicts make it impossible at the moment.
For the record, Joey Fatone isn’t big on peer pressure. Despite the recent reunions of several major ’90s boy bands — most notably Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and New Kids on the Block — Joey tells HollywoodLife.com that fans probably shouldn’t hold their breath for *NSYNC to get back together anytime soon. “Everybody’s doing their own thing, so it’s kind of hard to get five guys back together and say, ‘OK, what do you want to do?’” he explains.
“Everybody has different lives now, he adds. “You’ve got Justin Timberlake, who’s getting married; me, who’s doing Dancing with the Stars; Lance Bass, who’s producing a show, J.C. Chasez, who’s been writing; and Chris Kirkpatrick, who’s been … well, just Chris. He’s hanging out.”
As for whether or not he’d be willing to dance to an *NSYNC song on Dancing with the Stars — he’s currently competing on the show’s all-star season — Joey says he’s open to the idea “if the time is right and if it’s for a good reason.”
I guess that’s the best we can hope for — for now.
