Actor / singer Lance Bass claims that the newcomer Colton Underwood may get some reaction from the gay community to “monetize the experience” of the release.
Bass made his comments on the latest episode of The Ben & Ashley I. The almost famous podcast this week.
Colton announced that he was the gay host of Robin Roberts Good morning America show earlier this week. Deadline has announced that there is a reality show planned for Netflix about his life as a gay man.
Bass, who was part of the boy band NSYNC, came out gay in 2006.
“This gay community is very diverse, but we can also be very fickle,” Bass said in a podcast. “He will definitely get a lot of feedback from the community in the beginning. Not the majority, but there is a small percentage of the community who just won̵
He added: “They do not know what the problems are because they have been deliberately separated from it. So when someone comes out as a public figure, so many people immediately say, “It’s too late.” They don’t like to support it because they still don’t think you know what you’re talking about. But I don’t think Colton is trying to lead that charge by trying to be a spokesman for the LGBTQ community. “
Bass said he could relate to Underwood’s situation because NSYNC followers are mostly women. “90% of my fans were women and everyone thought I was right. I made my money from women and sang about love and the use of this market. So I went out, it was scary … because now everyone will think I’m a liar. “
