JC Chasez has admitted he has been approached over the years to join the cast of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” But, don’t ever expect to see him on the celebrity reality competition.
“They’ve had enough ‘Dancing with the Stars’ *NSYNC members, man,” he told Access Hollywood on Wednesday. “I’m good. Like Joey [Fatone], I think, did a fantastic job. I think Lance [Bass] did a fantastic job. I think they represented us well, so I’m OK.”
JC joined his *NSYNC boys on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday as part of the Video Vanguard tribute to Justin Timberlake, but despite their reunion, there is no new album in the works for the quintet.
“No, that’s not something we’re thinking about,” he told Access. “Really, the reason why this group came together to perform the pieces of those three songs [was] to support our friend. It’s never been about an *NSYNC reunion. That really was mainly friends supporting their friend who was being honored. There’s no plans for a recording, there’s no plans for touring again. It was a last minute thing, it was a fun thing. We all enjoyed it. But now, it’s kind of back to business as usual.”
For JC, that business includes working with the group Girl Radical.
“All of my energy recently has been going into a new pop group,” he told Access. “I started a pop group with my friend Jimmy Harry who’s a producer, and he’s worked on P!nk, Madonna, Britney [Spears] — every kind of female pop star you could imagine. [He] and I were kind of scratching our heads one day going, ‘How are we going to make a new impact? How are we going to develop something new?’ And… Girl Radical is what we came up with.”
JC explained that the new ensemble is big!
“What it is is a super-sized pop group,” he said. “This is a pop group that, at the moment, has 11 members… and we just were looking to do something different, something a bit more. We want to put on a spectacle and we’ve had the wonderful fortune to meet some really, really talented people who are on the same page as us and have pretty much taken over and run with the ball. And they’re really, really, really, talented people.”
