Former ‘N Sync member Lance Bass has blasted a story he says "misquotes me and prints fake quotes" about New York and his former bandmate’s restaurant.
The feature in the ‘New York’ magazine by Jada Yuan reads, "Lance Bass Not Hooked on NYC- Thinks we have no taste," a claim he has denied on his Myspace:

Rumor control on New York magazine article
Seriously! Here we go again! Cant believe I actually have to write this… this is just not a good week for me press wise… what did i do?!
So here goes… for those that read the New York mag article… I said none of those negative quotes! I expect bloggers to print fake things and its all in fun.. but when a real journalist misquotes me and prints fake quotes that I “said”.. that is just crazy!! And, I dont think legally they can do that! Can they? This dumb reporter just put words in my mouth and turned everything I said into a negative. I told her I love NY and I will probably be doing the bi-coastal thing now because I love it so much. I told her the first few apts I looked at were pieces of crap and the owners had no style at all… that turned into “Lance thinks New Yorkers have no style!” Then I told her I eat at Justins new place all the time, but it is really far away in the upper east side and always full of a college crowd. She turned that into ” Lance doesnt go to Justins restaurant cause its too far away and he doesnt like it because he is not in college anymore!” Um.. I didnt go to college, why the hell would I say that!
This girl should be working for the enquirer instead of a legit magazine!
If there ever was a need for a retraction this would be it– and hope NY Magazine will do the right thing and write one."
