There’s a moment in the Lance Bass–produced documentary about boy-band puppeteer and notorious conman Lou Pearlman that’s more heartbreaking than any one of the forlorn love songs *NSYNC or the Backstreet Boys (Pearlman’s biggest conquests) ever recorded. It’s the scene in The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story when the five members of *NSYNC recount the time when, three years into their stadium-touring, million-of-records-sold, screaming-teen-inducing careers, they are finally presented with their first cheques. Bass, along with Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez were at a fancy restaurant with Pearlman and their parents, expecting a massive pay day of at least seven figures.
