Justin Timberlake and *NSYNC Share Hilarious 'It's Gonna Be May' Memes
By Meredith B. Kile
April is over, and that means it's time for everyone's favorite misheard *NSYNC lyric to make the meme rounds on social media!
For several years now, fans have embraced the beginning of May by sharing screenshots and clips from the group's 2000 hit, "It's Gonna Be Me," the joke being that Justin Timberlake's exaggerated pronunciation of "me" makes it sound like he is announcing the approach of the new month. This year, the members of the boy band fully embraced the trend, sharing several variations on the meme on their own social pages.
"YOU ALREADY KNOW," Timberlake captioned a clip from the music video, which cuts off just before he sings the infamous line.
Lance Bass took to his Instagram story to celebrate May Day with a photo of the group performing together, which included yet another *NSYNC reference in its caption: "Bye bye bye, April," it read. "It's gonna be May!"
Chris Kirkpatrick wished fans "Happy it's gonna be May Day!" with the same graphic that Bass shared, and also posted a screenshot of the infamous boombox scene from the classic '80s rom-com Say Anything, which featured his face photoshopped over John Cusack's, and text that read, "It's gonna be May."
