Lance Bass was once married, the pop star revealed to E! News on Wednesday.

The openly gay ex-‘N Syncer turned author — his memoir Out of Sync is in bookstores now — tells the entertainment news program that he pulled a Britney and tied the knot with a former girlfriend in “1999 or 2000.”

“People do stupid things in the heat of the moment,” Lance said. “I’ve been in Vegas where I’ve gotten married for like five minutes, but no one talks about it though.”

The 28-year-old says he and his five-minute bride exchanged vows in hopes of some complimentary drinks. Alas, no one toasted the newlyweds.

“In fact the only reason we did it is because we wanted to get free drinks all night… and we didn’t get one,” he said. “We’re like, ‘We just got married,’ and they’re like, ‘Ah, whatever.’ “

Refusing to divulge more details, Lance would only go on to say that he and his ex-wife are still close. “Oh yeah, we’re friends. It’s great.”
