Lance Bass is not holding back!
The former *NSYNC singer is opening up in the January/February Hollywood issue of BELLA New York about his "therapeutic" coming out and his year as a newlywed -- and only ET has the exclusive preview of his candid interview.
Bass, 36, admits to the magazine that he wishes he could give his younger self a very important piece of advice: "Come out of the closet immediately."
"I would have had a different life," Bass says. "I would have enjoyed myself more and I wouldn't have had to hide something major in my life from the whole world. It separated me from my friends and family and so I would love to get those younger years back."
