Nor Does He Like Floral Design...

Lance Not Lovin’ NYC

Lance Bass‘ career may have brought him to New York, but the Hairspray star’s heart lies elsewhere. New York magazine caught up with the out entertainer and got his uncensored thoughts on the big apple. And they’re not very nice. First, he’s not down with our real estate:

There’s a lot of pieces of crap here for a lot of money. And I don’t think anyone here has any style. I was looking at fully furnished places and it was like, you can either have a bunch of floral prints or some dusty couch from the 1960s.

While the newly single Bass doesn’t say where he finally settled, we bet it’s not the Upper East Side, where former band mate Justin Timberlake owns a restaurant, Southern Hospitality: “I’ve been a few times. But it’s really up there. The Upper East Side? I’m not in college anymore.” No, Lance, no you’re not….

Bass’ New York adventure hasn’t been all bad. The former boy bander learned a new skill: “My walking pace has picked up a lot.” You better be a good runner, girl, ’cause we New Yorkers don’t take kindly to LA-types trashing our town.

    What an asshole. I’ve remained ambivalent about Bass but now I’ve decided. Seriously, he comes to stay in a new city and he publicly insults it? What kind of an idiot does that? And what college students go to the Upper East Side???? The UES is for rich people and nannies! Finish your stint in Hairspray, I’m sure you shit up the stage every night, then get the fuck out of our city.

    Ash, FWIW, according to Perez, Lance denied he made those comments in his MySpace blog (which is private, so I haven’t actually read it for myself). He says he told the reporter he didn’t like the first few apartments he looked at but she wrote he said it about all NYC, and she similarly twisted his words about Justin’s restaurant.

    Hey, some of us like that 1960s retro-modern charm. Get some Endust baby, go to IKEA and refit the damn place, making it groovalicious.

    And he’s actually really good in the show. And the truth about tiny, crappy places…the truth hurts, don’t it?

    But I don’t believe he said most of that. He’s a little more savvy than some give him credit.

    What a fucking tool! LA bugs and “Los Angelenos” definitely bug!

    He’s jealous.

    Excuse me?!?!?! LA has hooker/user/poseur style, how dare he trash NY style. Girl, New York is on the cutting edge of design, you can go back to LA with your Juicy Couture tracksuit but you can never diss New York style. You are still fug!

    Again, why does he matter or what HE thinks? He is the 5th member of a boy-band that was popular in a period of music that possible was the worst periods of American music in its history. The only reason he is of note anymore is because he is gay (which is counterproductive to a group of people who are trying to say we are human too and love is the same no matter sex but yet we want to split into our own community and do so by posting thngs like this. Once again who the fuck cares gay , str8, bi, or blue I just want o good content to read. To the subject, NYC is of a certain elevation and different and difficult place to live. It takes a particular open minded evolved breed, with intelligence and talent to live there. You end up loving it and staying or else you go back to middle America (L.A. in city form, in his case) in 3-6 months. I have seen it happen over and over.

    No one goes to the UES, except people who live in the UES, though.
