Even after years of drinking and drug abuse, if I was down to 47 brain cells, I would still be confident in my ability to come up with at least 47 better ways to celebrate my 47th birthday than singing NSYNC songs in a tutu. I don’t know if Chris Kirkpatrick is coming out, lost a bet, or just doesn’t care anymore but I’m sending my thoughts and prayers. Maybe a GoFundMe would be more appropriate, what’s the buyback price for dignity these days?
The ex-boy band member celebrated the big 4-7 Wednesday at Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville in what appeared to be a bachelorette-themed bash — which was chock-full of no-shame ballerina birthday girl fashion, and ‘NSYNC karaoke hits.
Chris was singing his iconic single, “Bye Bye Bye,” all while decked out in a pink tutu and a red sash.
Some sage, or maybe Kindergarten school teacher, said you should never compare yourself to others. But maybe in this case, Chris should have. It would have allowed him to change course. He could have calculated, and then proceeded to correct all of the mistakes in life that would lead him down a road of dancing in ballerina wear for cheap women whose idea of a top shelf drink is $2 Long Island Ice Teas at Applebees. So who did life better after NYSNC was over? Timberlake has partial ownership in an NBA team, albums still sell well, pours himself into Jessica Biel every night, and had his own Super Bowl halftime show. Kirkpatrick. Well. He has sole ownership of one very fancy looking sash slung across his body. That has to count for something.
