Lance Bass was just on CNN
Piers Morgan asked him what kind of advice he would give anyone who’s getting famous quickly.
(This is from memory so I’m sure some of it is paraphrased)
“Make sure to surround yourself with good people. … I was only 16, so I didn’t know much. … We got taken advantage of every step of the way. … They kept us so busy we didn’t really get to understand what was happening in our lives. … One of the big things I learned was the word ‘recoupable.’ Those nice dinners you have with the label that you’re thanking them for? You’re paying for that.”
