In a world of impending and ever-increasing chaos, perhaps one of the only predictable things is the constant onslaught of general slime that emits from Donald Trump’s Twitter handle. In the rare moments that he’s not taunting sports dads or on the verge of inciting international catastrophes, he’s most likely spreading misinformation about himself:
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

TIME has vocally and vehemently denied that the call ever happened. Like, at all.
And then there’s Lance Bass. The former *NSYNCer decided to try his hand at also propagating bloated claims about himself (and his own relevancy), all at the expense of Trump.
Tiger Beat called and said I was probably going to be Boybander of the year, but it was going to take a long photo shoot and interview. Unfortunately, i have a long awaited appointment to frost my tips on the day of the interview so i turned it down! No thanks Tiger Beat!!!

Considering *NSYNC broke up before most of their newest subjects were even born, it seems like a long-shot. But it seems like the only person who wasn’t kidding was Tiger Beat, the legendary magazine that’s been delivering constant heartthrob content for over half a century.
We love you Lance, frosted tips or not. Call us when you’re available 😘😘😘
