Lance Bass Loves Espresso Martinis—But Wait, Let Him Explain

Lance Bass will forever have a place in our hearts as one of the original boy-band pioneers (you think One Direction were the first to master synchronized dance moves while harmonizing?). While those days may be behind him, the former *NSYNC member is keeping busy: In addition to his role as a daily contributor on The Meredith Vieira Show, he’s also the host of “Dirty Pop with Lance Bass” every afternoon on SiriusXM. Here, Lance gamely puts up with our *NSYNC references while telling us about his morning routine, favorite foods, and cocktail of choice.

Here we go (for the first time). Everybody’s feeling fine? Great. What does your morning routine look like these days?
Ha ha! I see what you did there. Things look a little different now that I’m in New York—I wake up at 5:30 to get ready for Meredith. In L.A. I’d wake up slowly, take time to get hungry, and eventually make some toast with avocado, red chile pepper flakes, and a poached egg on top.

I try to stay away from coffee—although I do love it. I take a concoction of B12, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, raw cranberry juice. At Pret a Manger, I’ll get a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich or oatmeal with iced green tea. I might put a little dash of brown sugar in the oatmeal, and I always like cranberries, fruits, and nuts.

What food trend would you like to say “Bye Bye Bye” to?
I don’t like olives, so tapenades? They just don’t work for me at all. And I don’t like the trend of “let’s put cilantro in everything!” happening now. I’m one of those people who doesn’t like cilantro; it tastes awful to me.
