Lance Bass Holds Up ‘Not Taylor Swift’ Sign at NFL Game: ‘In Case Anyone Was Confused’

Lance Bass made sure that no one at the Cowboys-Chargers game on Monday (Oct. 16) got their expectations too high. After SoFi Stadium alerted the crowd that a star was in the midst and showed the *NSYNC band member on its jumbotrons, Bass held up a sign clarifying that he wasn’t one of the NFL’s most famous recent guests: Taylor Swift.


“Not Taylor Swift,” read Bass’ handwritten sign, which he held up to the cameras as he waved to the thousands of fans in attendance.

The singer shared a video of the moment on Instagram, showing how SoFi played his band’s iconic song “Bye Bye Bye” over the speakers. “In case anyone was confused,” he captioned the post. “#LookWhatYouMadeMeDo #GoChargers ! #NotTaylorSwift #MNF”

Bass’ sign poked fun at the pop culture craze surrounding Swift’s romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, with whom she was photographed twice holding hands over the weekend in New York City. The “Anti-Hero” singer has shown up to three of Kelce’s games so far, and is often shown by NFL cameras sharing a box suite with the athlete’s mom, Donna Kelce.

And while there are millions of Swifties who would love to see the pop star’s face appear on jumbotrons at any given NFL game, many of Bass’ fans assured him that they’d be just as excited to see him in the stands. “Honestly I would be more excited at seeing Lance Bass then Taylor swift 🤣” commented one fan.

“Lance…you’re the Taylor Swift of 20 years ago,” added another.


In fact, Swift just might be one of those fans. In September, she gushed over her love for *NSYNC at the VMAs after the band reunited onstage to present her with an award. “I had your dolls,” the “Karma” musician told the guys. “Like, are you doing something? What’s going to happen now … They’re going to do something and I need to know what it is!”

Soon after the awards show, Bass, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone announced plans to release their first full-band song in 20 years. “Better Place” arrived Sept. 29 as part of the soundtrack for Trolls Band Together, which aptly focuses on a boy band reunion.
