While everyone was tweeting about you-know-who’s tawdry twerking on the VMAs, ‘N Sync did something pretty amazing. Sales of the group’s stuff “skyrocketed” after their extremely brief 90 second appearance, according to The Huffington Post, despite the fact that they were basically amassed by Justin Timberlake to be his backup band.
Not surprisingly, no full-scale reunion is planned, The Associated Press reported. Rumors abound that the other four were understandably miffed at Justin for cutting their set so short and blending it into the rest of his medley of hit songs.
But as usual, TMZ has the real story -- and it’s not about the resurgence of the boy band, but rather that Joey Fatone farted in the general direction of VMA host Kevin Hart immediately after the performance.
We’ll have more on this “breaking” story as info comes in.
